How often do you shop online? Do you ever get to the checkout page and realize that the promotion code box is blank and it drives you crazy? I sometimes spend 5-10 minutes searching for a code because I am sure that there has to be one out there. And, if I don’t find one I feel like I’m getting ripped off by paying full price! My motto is, “Never Buy Without a Discount.”
Many times, recreation is a spur of the moment decision, but it doesn’t mean that you should always pay full price to have a good time. If you are heading out to go bowling, check the website of the bowling alley that you plan to go to. Most alleys have promotions going on – whether it be “all you can bowl” for an hour, or buy a game get one free. There are deals everywhere!
There are others that like to play online bingo. Believe it or not, there are deals for those that want to try their luck with a virtual bingo card as well. They just have to enter their GalaBingo Bonus Code when they head to the site and they will immediately receive a deal. There are honestly deals everywhere when it comes to recreation. All you have to do is look.
Deals are a little harder to come by if the store knows that you will eventually need their product and there are very few substitutes. For example, the local grocer in your area will likely not be handing out free money to everyone because they know you need your fruit and veggies and they are the best place for you to get it. Often times though, there are deals to be had. You just have to be patient. Enter their store name into Google and run a search for promotions. Because they do appreciate their customers, there will most likely be a special every month or so. Find out when their specials are and you will notice your pockets staying a little more plump with your money.
Other non-tangible items are a little easier, especially if you don’t mind second hand purchases. While I wouldn’t recommend that you purchase used mattresses, I think it is 100% okay to purchase a dining room table from craigslist or from your local garage sale. Just make sure that the wood is still solid and shows no sign of decay.
Do your due diligence and find those deals. You will be glad you did!
