Sites that save

by frugalista on January 25, 2010

Here are a few websites that can save you a few bucks. Of course, you can always click back here :), but I wanted to share the saving wealth!

Chegg:If you are in college or you are sending a loved one to college, this site lets you rent textbooks, so you don’t have to buy them. Depending on your major, textbooks can cost hundreds of dollars. After the class is over, you may not need them anymore. ‘Tis better to rent than buy. It’s better for the environment. My friend, Marcia, rented a $100 textbook for $23 and got it the next day.

Groupon: Groupon is all the rage these days. The site has a “deal-of-the-day” that lets you get discounts to hot events, high-end restaurants or group classes (I saw a pilates class I wanted). The catch is that a certain number of people must decide to take part in the “groupon” to get the discount. You can get discounts for more than 50 percent off-as long as enough people sign up for the discount online.

Amazon I know this site isn’t the newest site on the block, but I don’t think it gets enough credit for having such a wide array of items and for having great discounts. I bought a Chi flat iron for $30 less than it would have been at the store. I bought a friend a hardback book for $13 cheaper than at the store. Yes, there’s shipping involved but I still end up saving money.

So, frugalistas, please share with me the sites you use to save money. I know retailmenot.com is awesome, but I wanted to pick sites I haven’t written about before!
