Ways to Save Money Online

Updated on November 21, 2013

Daily Deal/Group Coupon Sites

Daily deal or group coupon sites negotiate with restaurants, salons, spas, and other retailers in order to provide daily coupons offering deep discounts of 50-90%. These sites will send you an e-mail offering the opportunity to buy a coupon for a deal in your city. For instance, they may offer $50 worth of food at a local restaurant for $20. They also frequently offer national deals for online retailers. Some group coupon sites have also expanded to offer deals for vacations and getaways as well as introducing "instant deals" which must be used within a few hours after purchases. Below is a list of the top daily deal sites that can save you lots of money at restaurants, salons/spas, local retailers, and even popular online sites such as Fandango or Amazon.

Cash Back Shopping Sites

There is a whole world of cash back shopping sites that will give you money back when you shop online. Basically you get an automatic 2%-10% or more back when shopping at some of your favorite sites online. If you're already shopping online, why not save the money by getting cash back? Below are some popular cash back shopping sites:

Exclusive Sale/Sample Sale Sites

There are numerous websites online that feature exclusive sales and/or sample sales which will sell nearly every type of product imaginable (although most frequently clothes and shoes) at deep discounts. Many of these sites are members only and an invitation is necessary to join. However, membership is entirely free and once you are a member you can invite friends and relatives to join in on the savings. Below is a list of some of the most popular online exclusive sale/sample sale sites. Each link below is an invitation link so that you can join the sites and start saving!

Rental Sites

Why buy when you can rent? Fashion is constantly changing--today's hot item is yesterday's "so over" fashion relic. Why spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on fashion items when you can rent them for a fraction of the cost? Renting is especially perfect for the ultimate fashionista who does not recycle looks. Today there are great sites online that let you rent everything under the sun.

Rent The Runway

Rent The Runway is basically Netflix for dresses (well before Netflix stopped mailing DVDs and started being a streaming only site). You can pick out a perfect dress to rent for a 4 or 8 day period as well as accessories to complete your look. Rent The Runway is a great way to save money on designer dresses and since most women refuse to wear the same dress price, Rent The Runway is a great way to have a perfect, on trend dress for any event without having to spend hundreds of dollars on a dress that will just sit in your closet.

Bag, Borrow, or Steal

Bag, Borrow, or Steal gained notoriety after being featured in the first Sex and the City Movie. It is a great way to rent designer handbags (as well as sunglasses and other accessories) for a weekly or monthly fee. This way you can keep up to date with the latest, must have bag without breaking the bank. Bag, Borrow, or Steal also sells used designer/luxury handbags and accessories at a discount.

Between Rent the Runway and Bag, Borrow, or Steal you can have the perfect, fashionable outfit at a fraction of the price! If only someone would start renting designer shoes!
