Back in January, the Hardworking Hubby and I gave each other early Valentine’s gifts. We each received a Nook color to help feed not only our technology addiction but also our addiction to books.
Yes, we both love to read.
Our purchase of 2 Nook colors in one day was made with ease thanks to the Barnes & Noble Coupons we had received in the mail prior to our purchase.
Again, I HATE to pay full price for anything!
Since making our purchase, I have read more books this year than I have in the last 5! Having an e-reader is so convenient not just for reading but also for searching the web as well!
There are also times when there is a book that I just have to have in true book form as well. When these books pop up, I often turn to online retailers like Amazon because I can find them used or I stumble on a great Amazon coupon code to use as well.
For the last few months, I have been purchasing quite a few things from Amazon as well. I bought 3 sets of dishes (2 that we use and 1 for backup in case something gets broken). I finally found dishes that I loved and they happened to priced to sell at under $30 a set and then I found matching acrylic glasses along with a coupon for 20% off…this made my purchase even easier!
I admit, Amazon has been quite an addiction. I am now using it to build a wish list of items I want to purchase for the new house. Tatertot has picked out a plethora of Power Rangers items to use to decorate his half of his new room.
Not only am I looking for items for the house and adding them to my wish list but I have also started building a Christmas list of items the kids want too! One of my favorite things about shopping on Amazon is that when I add items to my wish list and they go on sale while they are on it, I am notified of the sale when I log in to the site allowing me to make the purchase early if I need too.
What do you do to save when shopping online?
