Money Saving Websites That Thrifty People Love
Shopping in the store is the worst. It’s always packed, the people are rude, and you just never know if you’re getting the best deals. Thank goodness for these money saving websites that have solidified my love of online shopping!
Not a believer in online shopping or websites that save money? Give these sites a try and I know you won’t be disappointed. Even my compulsive-spender husband is now a believer in these spectacular money saving websites!
A few heads-ups about money saving websites.
All of these sites below are 100% legitimate and have helped, not just me, but hundreds and thousands of people save money. But for every good site, there are some bad ones. There are a lot of scams out there, especially around this time of year. No site should ask you to pay to access their coupons or to save you money. You might be asked to give your email, but that’s normal. If someone asks you for personal information, always double check the authenticity of the source before moving forward.
Now that we’ve gotten that nastiness out of the way, we can get to the good stuff!

With free 2-day shipping, Instant Video, and more, Amazon Prime is an amazing money saving website. I costs money to get, but if you buy from Amazon more than 10 times each year and are looking to cut cable, you’re missing out if you don’t have it.
Just in time for the holidays, you can get the 30-day free trial of Prime and you can just cancel it before you’re charged and still be able to use the free 2-day shipping in time for those last-minute Christmas purchases (take it from the mom who forgot her son’s favorite Christmas present on December 22nd and it was delivered on Christmas Eve)!
This is the go-to coupon site. They have coupon codes for almost every store, restaurant, and site out there. Before buying anything online, check out RetailMeNot for coupons. Their deals aren’t limited to just online shopping. They have in-store coupons as well!
Deals Facebook pages
The Money Saving Mom Facebook page is an amazing source for all of the best deals that the internet and stores have to offer.
Penny Pinchin’ Mom and Krazy Coupon Lady are 2 more amazing resources for finding the best holiday deals and sales from your favorite stores. Krazy Coupon Lady also regularly shows you how to get your favorite items for pennies on the dollar even without holiday sales.
If you have trouble saving money, this is for you. Digit gets to know your bank account and will automatically withdraw money and put it into a savings account for you. I’ve only been using it for a month and I’ve saved $203. I wouldn’t have done that if it weren’t for Digit.
You don’t need to do anything at all to start saving. All you have to do is connect your bank and they’ll start saving. Each day, you’ll get a text with your daily balance.
Amzreviewtrader is a site that gives you free or deeply discounted items. It used to be that they asked for a review in exchange for the products, but Amazon changed their policies and now they can’t require you to leave reviews. So literally, they give you these items for free or for next to nothing.
I’ve been using Amzreviewtrader for more than a year now and I’ve received more than $2,000 worth of goods for free. I’ve bought things like essential oils, essential oil diffusers, rollerballs, organic coffee, organic coconut oil, amber teething necklaces, baby swaddling blankets, and much more.
If you haven’t checked out Ibotta, now is the time to get started! Ibotta is a coupon app that will give you cash back for purchases that you make at the grocery store. The best part about Ibotta is that you don’t need to buy the brand-name items to get the coupons. They’ll give you cash back for the generic or store-brand items to add to your savings. If you drink beer, there are even cash back deals for you, too!
Zulily is on the top of my list for cute Christmas gifts that are really reasonably priced. They carry tons of different brands, and they’re always 20-80% off depending on the sale. Right now, I’m really excited about the matching Chrismas PJs for the whole family.
If you need to get nice clothes for holiday parties but you don’t want to spend a small fortune or brave the crowds at the stores, ThredUp is for you! ThredUp is an online consignment store where you can buy name-brand clothes that are in incredible condition for a deeply discounted price.
You can find even better deals in their “Basement” section, which is like their clearance. I bought a wool Banana Republic peacoat for $11. And don’t worry, if you don’t like something after you’ve bought it, you can get a full refund! If you’re still unsure, I did a brutally honest review of ThredUp to help you.
I love ThredUp, and they’re letting me give you a $10 credit off of your first order.
Schoola is a fairly new consignment clothing website where 40% of the proceeds fund schools (you can even pick the school you want the proceeds from your sale to go to) . They sell clothing for both boys and girls starting from 1 years old to 13+ years old ( the teenage section has both men’s and women’s sizes so adults could shop there too). I have ordered from them several times.
You can get $15 towards your first order when you sign up through my referral link.
If you’re shopping online and want to check for coupon codes, look no further than Google! All you need to do is Google “promo codes for [the store you’re making a purchase from].” No matter where I shop, this is the things I do anytime I buy anything online. Ever since I’ve started doing this, I haven’t paid for shipping and have gotten up to 75% off of my orders (plus my Ebates cash back).
There are so many ways to save money when you shop online. You’ll never need to pay full retail price when you shop online!
