When Mobile Coupons and Discount Gift Cards Collide: Vol. 4

Happy Friday, everyone! We’re getting ready to head into the weekend, so I’m bringing you another installment of “When Mobile Coupons and Discount Gift Cards Collide.” I’ve been SnipSnapping for over a year now and, during that time, I’ve completely transformed the way I see and spend money. Smart phone technology simply makes it way easier to be a super-efficient, organized, high-achieving human being. Before mobile MP3 players and GPS running apps, I was a lot less fit. Before Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, I was a lot less social. And before mobile couponing apps like SnipSnap, well, let’s just say couponing was something I always “aspired” to do.

Now that I can organize my money and scout out deals from my phone, while I’m waiting in line at the grocery store, riding the train, or working the elliptical machine at the gym, I’ve realized how truly invested I am in saving money every second of the day. I save on everything with mobile coupons: my daily coffee fix, groceries, and fashion for every season. And the more money I’ve banked from mobile couponing, the more convenient, unconventional saving strategies I’ve sought out.

Recently, I learned about Gift Card Rescue, a phenomenal service that offers cash for unwanted gift cards others can buy at a discount rate. Who doesn’t have five or ten favorite stores? I grocery shop, clothes shop, and eat out at the same places all the time. By purchasing discount gift cards, I can save 5-20% every time I shop at my favorite stores, and that’s before I use my coupons! Check out this week’s mobile coupon/discount gift card match ups, to learn how you can stack two very easy, savvy saving strategies.

When Mobile Coupons and Discount Gift Cards Collide: Volume 3

Happy Friday, super shoppers! I hope this week flew by for you after the holiday and you’re gearing up for the first full weekend of summer 2013. Tomorrow brings June and, with that, the (almost) end of the school year and the start of vacation season. I’m getting pretty excited for summer because I’ve got a hot, island vacation planned and lots of parties and events to attend. The only thing troubling me? The sheer volume of things I need to buy to get ready for vacation and the change of season. A few weeks ago, I blogged about how I scored a completely free bikini with mobile savings at H&M. I also saved $10 on another bikini and some super cute summer dresses with mobile coupons. Since it’s 90 degrees here in Philadelphia and I’m writing non-stop, I’ve been drinking tons of iced tea and coffee for free!

My secret? Maximizing every app in my mobile savings arsenal and stack the savings with other easy, unconventional savings techniques, like discount gift cards. For the last few Fridays, I’ve been blogging about how you can guarantee you’ll always save at your favorite stores even before coupons, by learning how to buy and use discounted gift cards from Gift Card Rescue. I’ve teamed up with Gift Card Rescue to bring you the “When Mobile Coupons and Discount Gift Cards Collide” series, which gives you a taste of how much you can save when you combine SnipSnap mobile coupons with discounted gift cards. Check out  this week’s featured savings at Sears, Pier 1 Imports, A.C. Moore, Yankee Candle, and Dick’s Sporting Goods:

5/29: Last Day to Score 40% off Everything + Free Shipping at American Eagle

Last week, I blogged about some seriously hot mobile Memorial Day savings, like this deal I snipped for 40% off everything in-store and online at American Eagle.

Screen Shot 2013-05-28 at 2.01.37 PM

I was so excited to shop AE because the discount works on clearance items, too! The clearance section in my local AE was loaded with really cute summer graphic tees, tanks, and really fabulous, high quality dresses. I picked up this stunning silk floral flutter dress; it was originally priced at $39.95, on sale for $34.99 and, with the 40% off discount, just $21. My total savings with store sales and the 40% off code: just about 50%!

Great News: American Eagle is extending its 40% off everything special through today, 5/29. You can still pick up anything and everything for almost half off in stores and online (with free shipping, to boot!). I’m in love with all of the flowing, floral markdowns, like this dandelion pleated summer skirt: originally $39.95, on sale for $29.99, just $18 with the coupon code!
