Quick Tip Of The Day: Save Big With Coupon Codes

By: Wendy Atterberry / October 29, 2010

In the last year or so, I’ve turned into my mother and have become obsessed with using coupon codes when shopping online. I’m so obsessed, that I never make a purchase online without searching for a coupon code first. I’d say about 75 percent of the time, I’m successful in that search. Anyway, I wanted to share a couple of the codes I’ve been using in recent days. First, is this amazing deal at Restaurant.com: through October 31st, you can save 80 percent on gift certificates to thousands of restaurants with the coupon code “TREAT” at checkout. Last week, I bought four $25 gift certificates (normally $10 each) to a couple of my favorite restaurants for a total of eight bucks! That’s $100 worth of food and booze for less than a tenner. Not bad, huh? Another one I’ve been using lately is “TREAT4U” for a 10 percent savings at Piperlime (good ’til November 26th). And today is the last day to save $25 off orders of $75 or more with code “DAWNOFTHEDEAL” at Urban Outfitters. My favorite sites for finding coupon codes are Couponcabin.com, Couponcode.com, and Retailmenot.com. What codes are you using these days?
