Discounts

What’s on this list?

I receive most of my coupon and sale information the same way you can, as a subscriber to a company’s email or social media page. The difference is that I subscribe and follow everyone so you don’t have to!  I also routinely ask companies for coupons or promotional pricing that I can share with you when they oblige. 

Also, if you know of a sale I’m missing, please let me know so we can get it listed here.
