I’m not sure about you, but I literally can’t remember the last time I paid full listed price for any products or services online. Am I the world’s savviest shopper, able to find the latest and greatest deals by scrounging the web for hours, price matching every little purchase against an online retailer?
Oh, not at all my dear grasshopper.
Getting a quick discount or a cash rebate to your soon-to-be purchased Widget Extreme X can be done within minutes with these websites at your disposal:
When you need to search for coupons and discounts online, there is always the grand daddy search engine of them all. Type in “Widget Extreme coupons” in Google and you’ll most likely find the latest coupons listed. If the coupon search word didn’t do the trick, try “Widget Extreme discounts” or “Widget Extreme X promotion” for some better luck.
Looking for coupons or discounts that you can use offline? Try searching for “Widget Extreme printable coupons” or “Widget Extreme in-store coupons” and you might just find some quick and easy coupons that you can use at the brick and mortar.
For financial products, such as credit score, you can also search for “myfico promo code” within Google and the first few result should be exactly what you’re looking for.
Take my recent search of “Wazer Wifle discount” for example. Within minutes I got myself free shipping, a 10% discount and was blasting away Enclave Soldiers with my new Wazer Wifle before they knew what hit them.
Fatwallet.com, the home and gathering place for some of the savviest consumer on the web.
