Couponology: Coupons or On and Off Line Shopping

by Kay Lynn

Regular readers know I prefer shopping online whenever possible.  Not only do I not have to leave the comfort of my home, but it saves time and gas!

Couponology is a new (to me) site I’ll be using to help me get the best price from now on. There are even printable coupons so  I can save when I actually have to go to a brick and mortar store.

The easy to navigate menu includes six main tabs.  The first has coupons organized by store and list the number of coupons next to the name.  It was a cinch to see there are currently six Sephora coupon codes!  If your favorite online merchant isn’t on the list, you can complete a short form to suggest a store and receive notification when it’s added.  Use the tab for coupons by category for those occasions when you don’t have a particular store in mind.

Have you ever bought something online where the shipping cost was more than the price of the item?  That’s actually happened to me.  So if free shipping is important, use the Free Shipping Codes tab to find stores offering this cost-saving promotion.

If you want to know what’s hot, there’s a tab listing the most popular coupons.  Using this and the tab for Best Online Coupons are great ways to find how to save for stores you might not know about.

Couponology has a free weekly email you can sign up and receive the best online coupons automatically.  Use these tools to help you stretch your budget by combining sales and coupons for the best deal.

I love shopping online, but hate shipping costs – so knowing about the “Free Shipping Codes tab” is awesome – thanks for that! I have signed up at Couponology!

We all know that one way the retailers “getcha” is by offering free shipping if your order is over a certain amount. I recognize that I’m a HUGE sucker for this – and I am careful to only order stuff we really need if I’m trying for the free shipping minimum purchase. Anyone else? Do you get sucked in to the free shipping with minimum purchase?

I use coupons whenever I can, but many of the items I buy do not have coupons. I generally use shopping bots to find the lowest prices and always look for free shipping.

I always check for a coupon, especially for free shipping! Thanks for introducing us to this site!

@Lisa, I definitely buy more than what I originally wanted sometimes to get the free shipping. At Amazon, I try to bundle my purchases to always get free shipping. Fortunately, $25 isn’t too high an amount.

@ Krantcents, what shopping bot do you recommend?

@ Maggie, I’ve found that using a free shipping coupon sometimes saves me more than the actual % off coupon (for those sites that only allow one promo code).

My friend turned me on to coupons about a year ago and I now never go out to buy without doing a search for the store or restaurant name and coupons. It has saved me big bucks.

However I have to sort through a lot of junk sites with no coupons but were set up just for ad income. There are a real bother, so it would be great to have a real site that does the searching for you. Thanks for suggesting Couponology, I will check it out.
