Saving Money with Coupons at Checkout
When I first talked about cash back portals and discounted gift cards, I mentioned that you could use coupon codes along with these techniques to save even more money. I realize now that it has never been easier to do so. This past week, one of my friends linked me to this CNET article about Coupons at Checkout, a free plug-in that automatically detects what store you are shopping at and presents you with a list of possible coupons for that store. In my examples about massive savings on engagement rings and massive savings on wedding rings, for example, Coupons at Checkout will provide a list of coupons that can be used at Blue Nile.
As soon as you click on the “Promotion Code” box, Coupons at Checkout will pop up with a list of coupons for you to select. The plug-in even puts a green dot next to coupon codes that are likely to work and a red dot next to coupon codes that are likely invalid or expired. In the Blue Nile example, the coupon code VISAW13 actually did not seem to work. Also, Coupons at Checkout did not list SIZER45, a valid coupon code that I was able to find through a quick Google search. Having said that, I tested Coupons at Checkout for various other sites, and it usually comes through with a successful coupon.
The Main Point
Coupons at Checkout still has a few kinks to work out, but it can be a valuable tool in helping you save money for your wedding, because you can usually use a coupon code even after going through a cash back portal, such as Ebates, Mr. Rebates, or Top Cash Back. It is especially helpful for those who are new to money-saving shopping techniques and want their online shopping process to be as seamless and easy as possible.
