A Genius Little Trick for Saving Money During the Holidays + a $200 Giveaway!

This post is sponsored by RetailMeNot

prepping for the holidays with Sanny

Today I wanted to share a easy trick that I’ve been using for years to help save money during the holidays, and actually all year round — RetailMeNot! Have you guys heard of it?

RetailMeNot is a site that collects coupons, sales, and deals from tons of different retailers.

I stumbled upon it years ago when I was searching for a coupon, and it’s been my go-to ever since because they actually have codes and coupons that work, and it’s so easy to search for a store and see all their deals and offers in one place. They even have an app now so I can find coupons and deals when I’m standing in line at a store — I literally used it yesterday at Ulta and found a $5 off coupon while I was heading to the checkout counter! Go check out all of their holiday deals right here.
