  • InvisibleHand shows a discreet notification when there are lower prices available on a product (online browser extension)
  • There are also sites like Blue Kangaroo and Cost Shredder that are great resources in helping you get the best price
Be a Follower
  • Follow your favorite retailers on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks
  • Sign up for email alerts
  • Download their mobile apps as well and sign up for text alerts
Look for discounted gift cards
  •  Sites like (<- Get a $5 credit for using this link to sign up!) and offer many discounted gift cards below face value
  • eBay often has discounted gift cards available as well.  Here is one example: eBay Gift Card
  • Swagbucks has introduced a new site called MyGiftCardsPlus that will give you SBs for buying gift cards
Choose the best method of payment
  • Many credit cards companies offer cash back on purchases, so it may be wise to use them depending on the situation / circumstances
    • One example is the Barclaycard Rewards MasterCard (1% cashback)
  • Consider store credit cards as well — Store Credit Cards That Are Worth It
  • If shopping at Target, use your REDCard to save an extra 5% + Free Shipping (on order $25+)
    • Speaking of shipping, choose “Ship to Store” to save money if that option is available
Once your shopping is done…
  • Open your Ibotta phone app to find additional rebates for anything you bought
    • Keep your receipts! There are a number of apps that will pay you for a photo of your receipts, such as Yaarlo and Receipt Hog.
  • If you buy something and it goes on sale later, Paribus automatically works to get you money back
  • Link your credit card to Acorns to invest spare change automatically into a diversified portfolio
