The Basics: Email Coupons

My budget became much smaller in college. I had to pay rent and bills on top of everything else I would want to do.

One of the first things I learned in college is simple – never pay full price for anything. Whether it be groceries, the movies, restaurants or even daily toiletries I have learned I can get it all much cheaper than the list price.

As I did some research, I learned it was so easy to find coupons for the things I use everyday. The easiest being email coupons. Any store I went to I would sign up to be on their email list. This allowed all deals to be sent straight to me before I even walk into the store. I recommend this to anyone, any savings can be good savings.

For example, I was getting free meals at TGI. Fridays just for signing up for their rewards membership. I also would get $30 off $10 at Bath & Body Works. If I was going to be shopping there regardless, I might as well save!

I later discovered websites that will send coupons straight to your email tailored to you. My favorite site is retailmenot.com. This is a great resource for any college student looking for a discount on the things they do everyday. It is very easy to pick the stores or activities you want coupons for and each week you get a new selection of coupons to shop from.

There are so many couponing websites out there for college students. I encourage every reader to go out and find the ones that work best for you. Never pay full price for the things you can get at a discount!

As a college student, where do you find your best deals?

Final Tip: Bed Bath and Beyond almost ALWAYS has a 20% off coupon for new email users. Great for move in day!

    1. Macy’s especially has so many available even if you don’t have the credit card! It has become one of the main places I check first for coupons when I need stuff for my home.
