Holiday Shopping

Every year I attempt to start buying gifts “early.” Early meaning…a week or two before Thanksgiving.

And yes, we are some of those crazies that head out shopping on Black Friday.

Each Thanksgiving we head to IA to my aunt’s house…the family digs through the piles of ads displaying the ridiculous deals….we all discuss getting up super early…and no one makes it out before 8 a.m.

But, I am attempting to take advantage of all of the free shipping deals going on, and have been buying some of our gifts online. And before I buy anything I click over to this website…


Many of you probably know about this site, but if not…CHECK IT OUT.


So let’s say you’re shopping online at Macy’s, you find some pretty good sales and before you know it, you have filled a virtual shopping cart. Then, in a new tab search “Macy’s” on retailmenot and it pulls up all the promo codes. Whether it’s free shipping, or a percentage off, this site pulls up a ton of options. Some codes work, some don’t…but a green symbol usually means it’s a go. They have codes for over 65,000 stores so it’s worth a look every time you do any online shopping.

I NEVER buy a thing online without searching this site, and 99% of the time I save money from a promo code they’ve posted.

So, while we’re all trying to save a dollar or two this holiday season I thought this might help some of you out! Shop away!


  1. Thanks for the tip. In the past I have always used They have coupon codes from alot of stores too. Maybe try a combination of both sites!!

  2. Thanks for sharing!! I had never heard of this site before!
