As we are kicking off the start of our Holiday Gift Guide I want you all to remember that the cost of the gift means nothing, and it is all the thought that counts! But of course many of us (myself included) will be buying gifts and we of course want to get our family and friends HOT gifts but with out the expensive price tag that can come with them. I am going to share with you my favorite ways to snag awesome gifts for very little money, and we will be continuing to share great deals that we find to help you save a TON of money with your Holiday Shopping! Through out the Holiday Gift Guide I will be sharing different ways that you can save money to score a great Christmas for waaaaayyyy less then the retail price!
This part of the Help Your Holiday Budget Series we are going to be talking about Daily Deal Sites. They can be VERY beneficial and help you save a TON! I LOVE them, and I love them even more when they give your credit just for signing up! You can really snag great deals and get things for FREE (sometimes you do have to pay shipping but most of the time it is reasonable) from daily deal sites but you want to make sure that you are signed up for them and the best time to do so is when they have free credit offers.
Right now there are quite a few that are giving credit just for signing up and I will also tell you how when I shop with them I snag great deals:) I have listed my favorites 🙂
One Kings Lane– I just bought a few of the Zak Design deals that they had but they also have the basement deals(you will find the logo on the bottom of their page just click it) where they put TONS of mark downs and with the FREE $15 credit they are offering right now there are HOT deals to be found! (sadly the sign on credit is now $15 off a $30 purchase)
RueLaLa– I am so hoping they do another FREE credit offer this year, last year I was able to score a Vera Bradley bag for $4.95 shipped, it was FREE after my credit and the retail price was almost $50!
Modnique– Each day they have a daily deal and when you sign up you get a FREE $5 credit and signing up for their newsletter gets you FREE Shipping!
SaveMore.com– Lately they have been having TONS of deals that are FREE after your $10 sign up credit. This week they had a deal where you bought a $30 voucher for only $7 but if you were a new member you got it FREE by using your free $10 credit. Many times with SaveMore deals you buy a voucher and in a few days you can redeem it and you have a HOT deal! You can also continue to get more free stuff by sharing your referral link with your friends and when they make a purchase you get a $10 credit!! (which is an easy way to get credits when they offer freebies often!)
No More Rack– Each Day they have 9 deals and they go live at 12pm EST, they sometimes have really hot ones that go fast so you have to keep an eye out for them. When you sign up you will get a FREE $10 off $20 purchase coupon using the code P1080 when you sign up, put that code in
Fab.com– Every so often they give me a code for a FREE $10 for everyone who signs up under my link which you can snag some free stuff with it, so keep an eye out for when we have the FREE $10 credit offer and snag it while you can because it only lasts for 24 hours!
Beyond The Rack– This one is great for finding designer deals at VERY discounted prices, if you are in the market for brands like Gucci, Burberry, Ed Hardy, Disney, Calvin Klein, and many others this is one you want to sign up for. The deals last only a few days and they do sell out fast on the really HOT deals but it is one of my favorite places to score deals on designer gear!
HauteLook– This one is an invite only site, which by clicking the link you have an invite! This is another one that is great for finding hot deals on designer and name brands. Right now you will get a $10 off $50 coupon if you sign up by November 16, 2011. The deals on this one also change often, so if you see a deal you want your best bet is to snag it while you can.
HomeSav-This site is one that mainly has housewares, things like coffee mugs and home decor but I have found plenty of things that make great gifts! When you sign up you will get a coupon for $10 off your first purchase
Zulily– Mom and kid’s deals are what this daily deal site is most for. I have found a lot of great toy deals on this one, which are great for scoring great deals on what your kiddos want for the holidays!
Totsy– I just scored great on this one the other day, they had a sale on Melissa and Doug Toys and Madame Alexander Baby dolls! Your first order with them ships FREE!
1 Sale A Day– Every day there are 5 new sale (sometimes they even have flash sales that only last for 30 minutes).
Living Social– A daily deal site where each day the deals change and you can search by your local area or find deals for people on your shopping list that do not live near you and you can get vouchers for them and give them the voucher so they can score a deal in their area 🙂
