With the holidays approaching, more and more people are looking for every possible avenue to save money and still enjoy being able to give.

There are so many ways to save money by shopping online. The most obvious is that you aren’t using gas to drive around! Another obvious benefit is that it is far easier to do price-comparisons online.  But, there are a few more ways to shop and save of which you may not be aware.

One site I’ve used frequently for online coupon codes is Coupon Chief.  It offers literally hundreds of discount codes for online shopping. Some are for a percent off, some are for free shipping, or perhaps a combination of the two. You can easily search for the store for which you need a discount code.  I’ve recently saved over $25 in shipping charges for some items I had to order online.

In addition, there are a few sites that offer online rebates, known as “ebates.”  Usually these sites require that you reach a certain dollar level in ebates before being able to cash-in and get your money back, but it doesn’t seem very hard to reach that level if you shop online much at all. Unfortunately, some of the larger retailers, such as Amazon and Ebay, don’t currently participate in these sites.

However, many well-known retailers do offer some great offers. So, check these sites out:

Ebates

Mr. Rebates

Sunshine Rewards

In order to take advantage of these online rebates, you simply login to their site first and then begin your shopping through the portals offered on their website.

Now on to some other good stuff:

** GREAT deal on ALL YOU Magazine until 10/25/2011. Six issues for $6! Check it out here.

All You Magazine October 2011 Coupon List – Bargain Briana has been kind enough to provide a list of coupons that will be in Walmart’s All You Magazine for October.  You can check it out here to see if you want to stop by and pick up a copy. I believe it retails for $2.49 per issue if you buy it at Walmart, but you can get a subscription for $1.66 per issue here.  However, I will tell you that sometimes the subscription version has less coupons than the newsstand version.
