Stack Your Savings

Recently, the importance of remembering all possible retail discounts came into play. I bought a grill from There was already a 10% discount due to friends and family weekend. I layered on a 5% discount from my AAA membership. Next, I made sure I clicked through from my Fatwallet account, qualifying me for 5% cash back. Amidst all my coupon stacking, I forgot there was a $5 off $50+ coupon easily found online. Not so bad, all in all we got a $349 grill from $320 after taxes.

So before you buy something online think:
  • Do I have a membership that qualifies me for discounts for this retailer? (AAA, etc.)
  • Go to Fatwallet and search for the merchant under Coupons and Cashback. It also has other coupon codes.
  • Do a Google search for the merchant and coupon code, try some discount codes and see if they stack.
Happy shopping!

Luxe Bedding at a Steal of a Price

Sierra Trading Post is a great website to buy shoes and outdoorsy gear. Who knew that they have a home decor section? While their stock and selection are slim, if you dig around, you might just come across a fabulous find. Case in point a 7 piece comforter set in a modern botanical motif, complete with accent pillows and shams for only $100. Sign up for the deal flyer coupons on Sierra Trading Post. Clicking on the email coupon gave me the discount on the comforter set, regularly $189 through Sierra Trading Post. They also had a romantic rose comforter set by the same maker in dusty browns and pinks. Grab it while it lasts. LINK
