I have always wanted to do an online review for my readers and now the time has finally come! Last week, I was asked to do a review for the website FindSavings.com. I jumped at the opportunity! However, when I realized it was an online coupon code site my heart sunk a bit. I don't do a lot of online shopping. Actually, that's probably an understatement. With the exception of my occasional E-bay purchase, it's VERY rare that I purchase anything online. But I delved in anyway, and here's what I found:
This website is extremely well put-together. I have been to other coupon code sites in the past and have gotten frustrated with the lack of organization. However, FindSavings.com is VERY organized - by far the most organized site I've visited for coupon codes.
As I began skimming through the pages and pages of codes, I was very impressed with the wide variety of stores listed. Oftentimes I have visited a coupon code site only to find that they have codes for only a few select stores in a certain category (only apparel, for example). But FindSavings.com is not like the others. They have 21 categories of stores including baby and family, computer software, jewelry, office supplies, travel and leisure, and more!
If you don't want to try to decipher which category a specific store is in, you have the option of searching for a store by using the search bar or by visiting the store directory. Even I, a self-proclaimed non-online shopper, was interested to find that stores such as Old Navy, Family Christian Stores, and GoDaddy.com (all stores I currently use) were listed.
In addition to sifting through the thousands of codes categorically by store or specifically by store, you can also choose to search other categories of codes such as expiring coupons, popular coupons, new coupons or by those that offer rebates or free shipping. Mixed in with the coupon codes for online purchases are direct links to store sales, blowouts, clearances, bargains, and hot products! (And you can search for these sales individually as well!)
If you plan to visit FindSavings.com regularly, there is also a blog which is updated daily with the latest codes and reminders about codes which are about to expire. Basically, this website scours the deals online every day so you don't have to!
If you do any sort of online shopping, I highly recommend you check out FindSavings.com before making your next purchase. Who knows how much money you could save?
