Saving money while shopping online

Looking for deals always works but I've broken down and put two apps onto my browser.

Ebates - ebates.com

and

Honey - joinhoney.com

So ebates works like a coupon and will popup when you can save money. Easy, done.

Honey is actually very cool. It will automatically see if there is a discount code available for you upon checkout.

I got thinking about this as I just used it buying some seeds to grow from Burpee.

So I'm checking out and honey pops up and says I can save 20% and that the code worked only an hour ago.

BAM!

Saved almost $10.00 I wasn't planning on saving. Ebates said I might be 1% to 5% cash back also. Sweet!

Then I used my credit card that gives me 2% cash back.

Well damn!

So this morning was a success so far and I was going to buy the stuff anyways.

Just a word of caution for the discount/coupon sites. Many of the sites are phishing sites as well. Get an old laptop to do all the coupon sites and discount sites you want. We use an old laptop for those. this way it is easy to maintain and if something hits it, we can just restore the original image and start again. And, don't use your debit card, pick a CC for this and monitor it. We use on CC and it gets hit a couple of times a year with charges we didn't put on it.
