Catch the Bargain Shopping Bug

May 3rd, 2015

To know me is to know how much I absolutely love a good bargain. Over the years I’ve written about deals I’ve found here and there online, plus doing a quick search and finding a discount code for said items and saving even more. To know me is to also know that I don’t purchase anything online anymore without first doing a quick search at sites like VouchaCodes to see if I can save a little extra. It adds maybe five minutes total to my online shopping time, and it has the potential to save me quite a bit. So who wouldn’t want to do that?

I know some people don’t have a lot of patience for shopping online, much less actually searching for discount codes. My mom is one of those people, but she also knows before she buys- to at least call her favorite (and only) daughter so that I can run a quick search for her, and that little trick has also saved her and diddy quite a bit over the years. I figure it’s the least I can do after all the have done for me in my lifetime, plus I consider it fun! After all, that’s why the sites are there, to help us save a little moolah, and this girl doesn’t want to pay more than I have to.

I’m curious though, what’s the most you’ve ever saved on a single purchase online by taking the time to look for a coupon or voucher code? My biggest was actually this past year- something I’d been eyeing for a long time but wasn’t wanting to pay the price. I kept looking and couldn’t find any codes, but one day I did. I actually thought because it was 100.00 that it would surely not be the ‘real deal’, so when I got home- I added the item to my cart, used said code and voila- 100 discount off my total purchase. Needless to say, that was exactly what I’d been waiting for, and the deciding factor on the purchase. That purchase was also my Christmas gift from Marcel last year, so a double win.
