I often talk about saving money on the blog. Usually it’s about getting deals at yard and estate sales, but we can’t buy everything there. Almost, but we do have to go out into the real, retail world occasionally. So when I got the opportunity to do a Groupon Coupons review, I jumped on it. I don’t do sponsored posts often. Most don’t even remotely fit my blog, but saving money does. As far as I’m concerned, saving money is always appropriate!
I have always used coupons. Cents off at the grocery store and % off at department stores. All my adult life. I started back when you could get a nickle off a bag of flour and the coupon never expired. Makes me sound ancient, doesn’t it? My mother used them and passed her thriftiness on down to me and I’ve passed it to my daughter. My, how the coupon world has changed since I first began! We can print them right off the internet these days. Momma would have loved that.
That’s my mom with money in hand back in the late 1950’s.
But guess what? There are also coupons for eBay! That’s great for vintage lovers and sellers! Right now, one of the offers is for a $10 coupon to be used if you list an item for sale – auction style, Buy It Now or Fixed Price and it sells within 15 days. The coupon can then be used to buy something for yourself — or to flip and resell. Woot-woot!
I couldn’t find the actual number of stores listed with Groupon Coupons, but it’s mind boggling. Several hundred that start with the letter “A” alone! It appears that if it’s a fairly major chain, it’s in there. I’m sure not all have deals going on all the time, but if you’re going to be shopping in any store, it’s worth it to see what kinds of coupons are available. My favorite store, Anthropologie is there with an extra 10% off coupon.
If you haven’t already, check it out! If you like using coupons and saving money, you’ll be so glad you did. The money you save can be spent at yard sales!
