I really don’t like outlet malls. People go there, thinking they’re getting huge deals, and then completely blow their budgets. I prefer deals or coupons for stuff that I would have bought anyway.
A recent example of coupons for stuff that I would have bought anyway: retailmenot.com. On Tuesday, as I was about to pay for some make-up remover and a new mascara, I remembered about retailmenot.com. I checked it out and sure enough, there was a coupon code for free ground shipping within the US for the site in question. That saved me $4.95.
Today, I was buying a new swimsuit and decided to check retailmenot.com for a coupon code before putting in my credit card. Guess what I found? A code for 20% off my entire purchase. That was $21.60 that I would have otherwise spent, which made my new swimsuit cheaper! I currently have two swimsuits, which are both over 4 years old now, covered in sunscreen stains, and wearing thin in the butt, so I decided that it was time to purchase a new swimsuit.
