The Art of the (Coupon) Deal

To begin with, I'll address the elephant in the room. When we think of coupons, most of us think of fat wads of paper with tons of tiny little pieces with tiny little type. We think of cluttery junk that makes a mess of everything and that will probably be expired before we remember to spend anything. I get it. I really, really do.

The thing is? Coupons have come a long way. You don't have to keep referral reward cards in your wallet. Sign up for a fabulous service like Keyring and your whole family can share accounts and keep everything together. Much the same way, coupons have entered the digital era. Now you can use a trusted site like Groupon Coupons and do your couponing online. Like I mentioned in my last post, most of us think of Groupon mostly when we're considering restaurants or travel options, but they have seriously brought up their game, and now you can do a LOT more with their site. 

You can still get all the straight up deals on restaurants and travel and classes in your area, but with Groupon Coupons, you can also get coupon codes and deals with a couple clicks. I chose TJ Maxx at random as an example (though there are also great stores like Groupon Coupons for Torrid, one of my faves, there too), and there are 107 coupons. JUST for that store. Can you imagine carrying that in your wallet? Now not only do you not have to carry it in your wallet, you can do your shopping online too. Shopping without putting on pants is my favorite. You can rate whether the deal worked for you and even share the coupon right there on the site if you spot something that's perfect for your friend but isn't really your thing.

Want to get even more bang for your buck? Try using a browser plugin like MyPoints that will let you apply extra coupons or get paid for your purchases with a single click.
