Save Big With Coupons

With how expensive things are nowadays, we have to adapt and become smart shoppers. And what is the best tool to help with that? Coupons! When used effectively, coupons can significantly decrease your monthly spending on groceries, clothes, and more. Since knowledge is power, let’s have a quick look into what kind of coupons we can find and how to use them.

Types Of Coupons

Nowadays we can find a vast array of coupons for both online and offline stores. There are many types of coupons that you can get. Let’s have a quick look at some of the options:

  • Amount: This is the basic form of a coupon, where the shop gives you a generic discount ($10, 10%, etc) on your order.
  • For students: Some brands offer a special discount for students to use. To access this discount, you have to sign in with your student information.
  • For heroes: As an appreciation method for teachers, medical staff, first responders, and military members, some brands offer an exclusive discount for these heroes. Once again, signing in will be necessary to access this discount.
  • Rewards member only: People who opt to join the rewards program at a brand, often get exclusive coupon codes that they can use to save on their orders.
  • Free shipping: A simple but helpful discount to get in orders is to have the shipping fee deducted from the total amount.
  • Free gift: This is a favorite for many people, as you receive a free gift with your order to sweeten the deal.
  • Newsletter: Many brands have the option for you to subscribe to their newsletter, and, in return, you get a coupon to use on your first order.
  • Friend referral: You can also get rewarded with a special coupon when you refer a friend to the brand.
  • Via the app: Lastly, you will often find that brands will give you a coupon that is exclusively valid on the app or be awarded a coupon when you download the brand’s app.
    Sometimes we also find a combination of two of these types, for example, a coupon for 20% off + free shipping, or students getting 10% off + free gift in their orders. The possibilities are endless.

What About Seasonal Coupons?

We can’t forget about all of the seasonal events and coupons that you will find. Many brands create sales events for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Summer Sale, Black Friday, etc. These sales could be generic sales that apply sitewide or could be event-specific, for example, the summer sale only having a discount on swimwear. And we will also experience many discounts and coupons at the end-of-season sales when brands want to finish their stock and we get to buy all of these amazing products for a much lower price.

How To Find Them

Brands like TrustDeals are what you need in order to find all coupons currently available. We work hard to collect and publish all deals and coupons currently available so that you can find the coupon you need easier and can save on all your orders, regardless of the store. We also make sure to constantly add the generic sales that the brands have going on (that don’t always include a coupon) so that you are always aware of the discounts you can get. Make sure to browse our website to find your favorite brands now!

How To Use Them

In full disclosure, each brand has a different set-up on how you need to apply their coupon. If you check our specific brand pages, you will find a step-by-step guide on how to apply that specific brand’s coupon. But let’s go over some specific things you need to keep in mind when using a coupon.

  • Validity: Always make sure that the coupon you are using is still valid, otherwise it won’t work.
  • Minimum order value: Many coupons come with a minimum value you need to spend before the coupon will be valid for your order. Always check what that value is.
  • Specifications: Brands often make coupons for specific products. Make sure that you are picking a coupon that applies to your order. A coupon for women’s clothes won’t work for your tennis shoes!
  • Terms and conditions: Sometimes there are rules to the coupon. Maybe it is only valid as long as there is stock available, maybe it says that the coupon won’t be valid on already discounted items. It is always advisable to check what the terms say so that you know how to best use your coupon.
