Who loves saving money? The real question is who doesn’t? You’re in the right spot because today’s tip is all about saving money online. CHA-CHING!
Recently, I interviewed several entrepreneurs in my Facebook Group and while they said they like to save money, they also said they were not familiar with a money-saving tool I use every day.
Save while you shop at more than 20,000 stores
Meet retailmenot.com is a collection of coupon websites helping you save or earn cashback while you shop. Some coupon codes include a percetnage or a dollar amount off your purchase. For example, at the time of writing this post, if I selected a ream of paper or card stock from Office Depot to purchase, RetailMeNot would provide a code for 20% off any regular priced item.
Here’s how to save with RetailMeNot, everytime you shop:
- Go to RetailMeNot.com
- Search for your favorite store (show a screenshot of Office Depot since I mentioned them)
- Select the item you want to buy
- Wait for RetailMeNot to pop up on the side of your screen
- Choose the best deal and copy the discount code
- Paste it in the coupon promo code section on the website during checkout (show a screenshot of checkout)
- Start saving money!
How I Save Instantly using the Chrome Extension
The only trouble was remembering to visit the site before shopping until they introduced the Chrome Extension.
Adding the extension to your browser allows RetailMeNot to constantly search any site you pull up to find all available discounts. Follow these easy steps to add it to your Chrome profile.
How to Download RetailMeNot.com Chrome Extension: (show all of three steps with screenshots)
- Head over to the Chrome Web Store and search for, “RetailMeNot Deal Finder.”
- Click “Add to Chrome” and it will immediately download to your computer. You’ll know that the download is successful when you see a little purple “R” in the upper right corner of your screen.
- However, it will only show up temporarily unless you pin it! Simply click the puzzle icon, find RetailMeNot, and click the pin icon next to it. Now when you shop your favorite online store directly, RetailMeNot will alert you of any coupon codes available.
