Here are some websites to save you money. I will be adding more as time goes on so please keep checking back.
Disclaimer: I do use all of these websites and wanted to let you know that I am an affiliate for some of them. Just helps me a little! I do NOT promote products or any advertising that I don’t agree with.
FREE $25 with ING Direct!
I opened an online savings account with these guys a few years back and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. If you open an account with $100 and use my special client key, you get an extra $25!!!! Just click HERE to sign up and use this key #15832503S1 to get your FREE $25! I mean, it’s free so why not? Sadly this deal is for Canadians only, sorry!
GOODS & SERVICES FOR $5
From animation services to virtual assistants, get it all here for $5! I’ve used this website A LOT (my logo was designed by someone on Fiverr for $5). Check it out!
INK & TONER
I purchase my toner from these guys! Cheaper than the store and super fast shipping too!
A good rule of thumb is to occasionally check company websites for printable coupons. If there are products you use a lot, email them and ask for some. I do this and I always get them.
Healthyshopper.ca – For Canadians. You can order their coupon book or simply register for free and download them at no charge. I use these on a regular basis. The only coupons you will see are for health food and organic items. Amazing.
Mambo Spouts - A US website which offers a slew of printable coupons! You can also find a hard copy of these coupons at most Whole Foods stores.
My Organic Coupons – This is a personal website with a list of many organic and health food product sites with coupons!
GROUP BUYING WEBSITES
These websites are AMAZING for buying coupons for various things from cleaning to spas! Get 50%+ off local businesses in your area.
SPENCER’S MARKET (Group Buying website for Vegans, US Customers only for the moment)
Dealicious.ca (there are even printable coupons on here!)
DAILY DEAL FASHION, TRAVEL & DECOR WEBSITES
These websites also offer daily deals for various items like purses, clothing , shoes and even resort stays! You can get designer stuff for cheap. I have bought numerous things on a couple of these websites.
Jasmere (US Only)
GILT – US Only
Hautelook – Canada & US
Enviius – Canada & US
Beyond the Rack – Canada & US
Ruelala – US Only
Prive – US & Canada
GLYMM BOX: (I subscribe to this, really worth it!!)
LUXEBOX by LOOSEBUTTON (Same as above, AWESOME! Get 4-6 luxury beauty products to your door monthly for $12/month)
BIRCHBOX (Same as above but for US customers only)
GET MONEY BACK FOR ONLINE PURCHASES
These are websites which pay you when you make a purchase with a merchant they support. I use these all the time when shopping online. These sites also show you coupons and deals for the merchants so you can’t lose. Usually the payback is minimal but who cares? Even if you get 2% cash back, that is still a few bucks in your pocket. Both of these sites pay you via Paypal. If you shop online, its definitely worth it. Costs you nothing to sign up!
EBATES (US & Canada) – This is the most popular one and can be used by Canadians as well. They have TONS of businesses listed. You also get paid for referring people. $5 each person plus bonuses too.
EBATES CANADA (new!) – Same as Ebates but specifically for Canadians! I use Ebates when shopping online and have received a lot of discounts and money back for doing so. Give it a try.
GREAT CANADIAN REBATES (Canada) – If you click on the link you’ll get $2 for FREE if you sign up!! Woohoo! This is the same as Ebates but for many Canadian merchants. Great for Canadians who want to shop within Canada and still get money back! I was using this site for a few years before I discovered Ebates. I still use it when shopping within Canada.
Please let me know if there are UK websites like this that some of you have used. Would love to add an international link.
SAVE ON TRAVEL
COUCHSURFING.ORG - A free network of people worldwide offering accommodations for FREE! I am a couchsurfing host and have been for almost 5 years. Amazing. Free to sign up.
AIRBNB.COM – Similar to couchsurfing but people make money at it! I have been an Airbnb host for almost 4 years now. Stay with locals in some interesting accommodations. From budget to pure luxury. Great concept.
WWW.HOTELS.COM – If you don’t want to use Airbnb, try this website for awesome deals on hotels. If you login using Ebates (see ab0ve) you get an extra 3.25% back. And you can join their free reward system, for every 10 nights booked (not necessarily in a row!) you get one free. How cool is that?
WWW.PRICELINE.COM – I once booked a hotel through this website for $43 instead of $85. I was able to pick the hotel, it wasn’t random. Give them a try and save money on all your travel needs.
