Guest Post: Saving Money With Coupon Codes

I like to use coupons and have had readers write in to ask the best way to use coupons to save the most money so I thought I’d share this guest post with you since it goes into detail about the art of using coupon codes – Enjoy!

If you are on this site, you probably are already sold on the idea of saving money.  And why shouldn’t you be?  It doesn’t matter if you have a bank account with six zeros after the number or one that simply totals zero.  There is just no reason to ever spend a penny more on anything than need be.  It’s your money, keep it in your pocket.  Most consumers are familiar with traditional paper coupons.  Coupon codes are a little newer.  So why should you use coupon codes and how?

What is a Coupon Code

Chances are when you shop online and get to the checkout page, you will see a box that says Do You Have a Promotional Code (sometimes it will ask for a coupon code or a discount code – they are all the same thing)?  Don’t just skip the box…ever!  If you enter a valid code from the retailer you will save money.

What Can You Save

There are different types of coupon codes.  Some will save you dollars off – just like traditional coupons.  So you might save anywhere from $1.00 to $100.00 off of an order.  Read the code carefully.  You may be required to spend a certain amount to save.  Do the math before you decide you aren’t spending enough to use the code.  For example, one time I was buying my nephew sneakers.  They $90.  I had to spend $100 to get $25 off.  I added a pair of matching socks for $15.00 to my order.  My total was now $105, but it qualified me for the coupon.  Once the coupon came off, my total was $80.  So, I was spending less than just the cost of the sneakers and getting “free” socks as well.  Some coupons are for a percentage off.  Again, sometimes these come with spending restrictions, but take the time to do the math.  Are they offering 10% off of $25 or more, but 20% off of $50 or more?  You plan on spending $45.  That would come out to $40.50.  Add $5 to your order and you will be spending only $40.00 after the discount.  Sometimes codes offer free shipping if you spend a certain amount or even on all orders.  Some sites will let you enter multiple discount codes and other sites will only allow one per order.

It’s Super Easy To Do

Don’t worry about clipping a thing!  Coupon codes are found right online.  Simply go to before you order anything online.  Search for the store or product you want to buy.  Click back to your order screen and type in your coupon code and watch the savings add up!
