Something I discovered a few years ago was the wonder of coupon codes. I shop a lot on the Internet, especially for Christmas. It can be a percentage off, a free gift, or free shipping, you name it. We have a lot of family that lives far away, so it is great to be able to personalize a gift online and have it shipped to them directly.
What I usually do is search on Google for the web site's name plus the words coupon code, If there is a discount code I can usually find it. This has saved me a ton of money over time! I just placed an order with Victoria's Secret and got a total of almost $50 off in discounts and free gifts... Cool! I am an Angel member (credit card) so that gives me extra incentives and codes. I recommend it if you shop there often as I do (I love their Love Spell scent!), definitely worth it.
