$500 Giveaway – Saving money by shopping online

I never buy Tylenol for full price.  Or lip balm.  Or laundry detergent.  Or any other number of household products for that matter.  Usually, I pay around $4 for a bottle of Tylenol, no money at all for lip balm and $1-2 for liquid laundry detergent.  How?  Sales and coupons – in particular, online coupons.

Many major brands will regularly feature coupons on their website.  Tylenol is an example of this, as are many brands of pet food, personal care items and other household sundries.  I usually just print out the coupons semi-regularly and combine them with a sale to maximize my savings.  For some items like my lip balm, the coupons are often more than the cost of the product – in other words, free!

This past Christmas, I’ve also started looking into free shipping coupons for online retailers.  I like buying online since you can often get better prices, but the shipping and handling charges really eat into your savings.  I’ve had mixed experience with these types of coupons – Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t, but it doesn’t hurt to try.

To get YOU started with saving some money, we are joining in another giveaway! The contest runs February 7 – 25, with the lucky winner taking home $500 cash. Use the widget below to get your name in the draw!

    Whenever I shop online I always do a quick google search for coupon codes for that particular website. I’de say that I have about a 70% success rate of finding discounts or free shipping codes that work. It took a while for me to get into the habit of doing that but now I do it automatically.

  2. I did not know that about Tylenol, I’ll have to check that out. We buy a lot of stuff online as well and always look for coupon codes in order to get some savings.

      Yep, Tylenol always has coupons up. I was on the site the other day and They had coupons for four different Tylenol products ranging from $2-$4 off.

  3. Like John, I didn’t know that, good tip. Free shipping coupons has become a big thing w/ online shoppers. By spending 45 seconds looking for one before you finalize your purchase you can easily save $5 – $10 per order! Totally worth it. Thanks for participating!

    I have only recently started looking online for coupons. Well, looking for coupons at all, actually! I will have to keep an eye out for the Tylenol one.. what kind of lip balm again…? 🙂

  5. I am a big online shopper and only shop places that have coupons or already low prices. Great tip about Tylenol.

  6. 🙂 I love the cat pic! Thanks for the giveaway!
