Secret tips on how to save BIG!

Posted on February 13, 2015 by Wendy Krepak

During the holidays, I always make it a point to purchase restaurant gift cards as gifts. Restaurants always have deals during those times of year, you know the ones: Buy $50 in Gift Cards and Get a $15 Bonus Card For You!

It’s a win-win situation, really. They get the gift card and I get the bonus gift card! (Savings Tip: These cards may have an expiration date so pay attention.).

It doesn’t stop at the restaurant either, services like massages, hair stylists, and more offer discounts throughout the year. My hair stylist does a big gift card promotion a couple times a year: Buy one and get an extra 20% off your next service. When she runs this deal, I buy a handful of them for myself and save 20% all year on my salon services.

Another great way to save money is online shopping. It’s an easy, convenient method to check things off your to-do list. Need to stock up on toilet paper, shampoo, heck, you need a birthday gift for your nephew, all you need to do is navigating online, make a few clicks and it’s delivered to your door.

When shopping online, before I click order, I hit google and search for coupon codes. No luck? Head straight to the store’s webpage and sign up for their reward programs. Guaranteed in a day or two, there will be a welcome code in an email with a percentage off.

Keep your eyes peeled for great gift card deals and online coupon codes all year long and you’ll be able to keep the savings in your Card Cubby!
