We’re preening like proud parents, over here: Our CEO and founder, Brian Nickerson, was recently interviewed by Denver’s Fox31 News Problem Solvers team about our best savings tips for holiday shopping. You can read the full list of tips on this MagicLinks blog post, and watch the video embedded above, but here’s a quick rundown of what Brian told Fox31’s reporters:
NEVER Forget to Use a Coupon: Chippmunk has, of course, links to all the Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and holiday sales & coupons out there.
Compare Prices: Chippmunk’s comparison tool lets you compare prices at different online retailers for the same item, plus gives you coupon codes, so you’ll never pay full price. EVER. They’re partnered with over 1,000 online stores and do all the hard work for you.
Stack ‘Em: Some retailers, like Kohl’s and DSW, allow you to use multiple codes in the same order. Enter them in this order: percentage off, then dollar off.
Check YouTube: You depend on your favorite YouTubers’ recommendations for everything from cell phones to eyeliner, so check the links in their description boxes for MagicLinks links to coupons and deals on Chippmunk. A few popular YouTubers that use MagicLink are Zabrena of MacShadowCombos, Serein Wu of Dress Yourself Happy, and Amy Macedo. Check ‘em out!
First Time’s the Charm: Many online stores give first-time buyers a coupon code to use on their first order. If you’ve purchased from a store before, clear your browsing history and use another email address to sign up for that first-time purchase coupon and place your first order.
Don’t Forget Green Monday: Missed out on a deal on that HDTV on Cyber Monday? Monday, December 14th is Green Monday, where many retailers will re-launch their Cyber Monday coupons and sales.
Free Shipping Day: December 18th is the LAST day to get ground shipping orders placed in time for Christmas Eve delivery, so many retailers offer free or lower-priced expedited shipping on that day.
Use the Right Credit Card: Check out offers on store credit cards, including Amazon credit cards, for cardholder-exclusive offers.
