I know I’m not the only person out there who seems to have the hardest time finishing up the holiday shopping list due to certain men who are seemingly impossible to peg for gifts. My husband is one of those men, and despite the fact that I actually shop all year long for all of my family members (25 in all!), it NEVER fails that I’m scrambling to find gifts for my husband during the week before Christmas.
This guy just really isn’t into gifts. So I set money aside so we can take trips and even go on date nights, as those are things he really loves, but it’s just really lame to think about him having nothing to unwrap on Christmas morning, so I try to pay attention to the things he uses on a regular basis and anticipate what might need to be replaced.
A few days ago, I noticed that his bike helmet was looking a bit ragged and I thought, “That’s it! I’ll get him a new helmet!” So I hopped onto RetailMeNot.com to see which sporting goods stores might be offering some sales to help me get something nice within my $50 budget. If you aren’t familiar with the app or the website, it’s an amazing (and FREE!) resource to help you find the very best deals and the very best offers out there so that you don’t have to scour the internet to try to find coupons. RetailMeNot knows what’s on sale, what the “secret sale” coupon codes are, and what’s current so that you don’t end up with something expired and useless. It can help you whether you know exactly where you want to shop, or even you are like me and know what you want to buy, but are flexible about where you buy it.
The Holiday Deals page delivered something amazing for me: it turns out that on the day I checked out RetailMeNot, Dick’s Sporting Goods was offering 40% off any one item on the website. I wouldn’t have thought to check out this particular business on my own, but once I saw the sale available, I knew it was the way to go. I also discovered that RetailMeNot was offering an additional Cash Back Offer for this merchant, which sweetened the deal even further!
With just a few clicks, RetailMeNot saved me so much money on a purchase I was already planning to make that I was able to also pick up a really nice pair of winter gloves to go along with the helmet. Since my husband commutes to work on his bike, and since temperatures do drop quite a bit in the winter, these will be much loved and appreciated. And I didn’t even have to stretch my budget beyond my original amount that was just for the helmet. What a great deal!
If you don’t already have the RetailMeNot app on your smartphone, definitely take a few seconds to do that, because it can save you big bucks! And if you’ve already snagged some great deals through the app or website, be sure to share your savings with friends using #DealBrag. You just might inspire someone else you know to give it a try and to save some serious cash, too!
