A Coupon Code Success Story

A good friend and Save 4 Fun reader emailed me yesterday all excited about a deal she got on a baby gift. I do love a bargain, so I thought I'd share it with all of you too. Here's what she wrote:

Just had to tell you about the good deal I got...I was ordering a gift for a neighbor who just had a baby. It's her 2nd son, born in the same season as the 1st, so I didn't want go to the clothes or toy route. So, I thought of a brothers picture frame. I found one that I could personalize with their names. It was on sale online, but shipping was $8.95. geez...so I Goggled for a coupon code for that company, and sure enough there one was for $5.00 off. I never do go hunting for coupon codes on the web, b/c I rarely purchase anything online. I was so excited to save $5! Just thought I'd share my good savings with ya!

Hurrah for searching out a deal on a great gift idea! And this goes to show that you really should hunt for coupon codes before shopping online.

That's so fun! One nice aspect of the current economic climate is retailers are desperate. I sign up for the email mailers from stores I love and my inbox has been full of coupons for 10,15,20% off or free shipping. And I told you about the free organic milk, right? $4.99!

Kate - you are right! The inbox is full of deals. I may have mentioned this in the past, but I have an email account dedicated to those advertising emails. I check it every day and have found some great stuff lately. I'll have to post about it in the near future.

And free $4.99 milk -- hurrah!!!
