Using your computer to save you money – Coupons and more

Posted 2 December 2012 by in Shop Local

Your MoneyTHUNDER BAY – You do not have to become an extreme couponer. However if at the click of a mouse you could save five or ten dollars, or more on things you already purchase, would you? Growing numbers of people are doing just that, going online and saving money.

Websites like www.save.ca offer you the opportunity to select coupons that you want, and have them delivered  to your mailbox. There is no cost for the service, and often the savings are on many of the popular products most people are purchasing every week. Other sites like www.munchkinsandwich.com and www.smartcanucks.ca offer you coupons, access to free samples, and other online freebies.

Online you can use NNL’s Gas Prices  feature to find the best prices for filling up your vehicle. In Thunder Bay there is up to a twenty cent price variation per litre. If you are filling up a 50 litre tank once a week. At the end of a year, that could represent up to $500 in savings.

A visit to Smart Canuck’s blog can link you up to their coupon forum, where hordes of people are sharing where the best online coupons can be found. Those dollars you save can go a long way to making it easier to make ends meet.

That old adage from Benjamin Franklin that “A penny saved is a penny earned” still holds true today.

If you are more technical, and thinking of building your knowledge base, a visit over to www.tradepub.com will give you access to free subscriptions to trade journals and magazines. There are a large selection of free magazines, and downloads.

Right now for example there are coupons offering you hundreds of dollars in savings. What are you waiting for?

Your thoughts? Please be respectful... and on topic.
