Secrets of a Bargain Shopper

Shopping at the retail stores can be a costly venture; but,there are ways to score great savings. Try these the next time you plan a shopping trip:
1. Buy on sale or at discount. Then,combine the sale with a printed coupon from the store's website, or a store code from the web at

2. Don't be afraid to ask for a discount.

3. Sign-up for the stores frequent shopper list to get email alerts of promotions.

4. Become a fan of the store on Facebook.

5. Search the store web-sites before you leave home. Macy, Kohls, JC Penney and Deb Stores frequently offer $10.00-$15.00 off a purchase of $10-15.00 or more. FYI: You can really just purchase an article for $10.00 and all you pay is the tax.

6. Check these sites for additional savings: and When you buy a product with the Good Housekeeping seal, you get the gurantee from Good Housing Keeping that they will refund or repair your product if it is defective. Look in the magazine or on the product lable for the gurantee policy. It is a great policy.
