Coupon Codes Rock

in: General

Now, sometimes we take things for granted – don’t be ashamed, we all do it. What comes natural to some, others don’t even think of it.

I get called “Cheap Jeni” a lot of the times when I go shopping. I may find something that I want to buy, I will carry it around the store for up to an hour, after that hour, if I still want it, I’ll buy it. More times than not, I don’t want it any more.  Helps keep me on budget. Now there are times when I really do need/want it, but I don’t buy it – well, at least at that moment- there is always the next time.

I am doing some fund raising for our Susan G Komen 3-Day Walk Team, and I needed to order some supplies to make up posters. When I went to check out, there was an “Enter Coupon Code” box on the check-out form. So, I opened another tab and “Googled” the company name and “coupon”.  I not only found a “free shipping” code but also a 15% savings code that I was able to double up on.  IT WAS AWESOME!

So, at our Team meeting, I nonchalantly was describing how I saved so much and everyone just looked at me – it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop (This was a room full of women!) .  The moral of the story is if there is a place on the check-out form to enter a coupon code – ‘Google’ It! ( or Bing, or Yahoo, or whatever search engine you prefer.)  It won’t cost you anything, in fact, it could save you a bunch.
