The holiday season will be here before you know it……and many of us will do quite a bit of our holiday shopping online. I’m guilty of that, especially when it’s so easy to find deals AND coupon codes on top of deals……and the ever-popular FREE SHIPPING!
It’s easy to find a deal online and forget to check if you can make that deal even sweeter. One tip is to always search for a coupon code. Since 2006, Coupon Cactus has been an online resource for coupon codes, and I recently used them to do some shopping.
My Grandma has a computer…..but no Internet. She tells me she’d rather talk on the phone than email. 🙂 But when she was having trouble finding a certain pair and brand of shoes she had worn for years, I knew it was best to turn to the Internet. The first thing I did was go to the brand website to make sure they still made the shoe….they did. Next up, I needed a coupon code. There’s very few things that we need to pay full price for.
I visited Coupon Cactus to begin my search. What I noticed immediately was how easy the site was to navigate. You can search for coupon codes by category (baby, beauty, clothing, etc) or even by store…..stores like Home Depot, Sony, Target and more.
You can also search for coupon codes by
- Most Popular
- Biggest Discounts
- Free Shipping
- Coupon Cactus Exclusives
I found the quickest way to conduct my search was to put in the exact brand and style of shoe I was looking for in the keyword search box. This pulled up several different online shoe companies. You could easily see the options and what the code discount was. I immediately liked one that offered 10% off and Free Shipping and clicked for more information.
A pop-up box opened up with the actual Coupon Code to use and the actual shopping site replaced Coupon Cactus…..and yes, my grandmother is now the proud owner of yet another pair of her favorite black shoes. 🙂
It’s FREE: Coupon Cactus is a free resource for shoppers. There’s no need to register and create an account with them at all. You don’t have to give them your name, address, email (you get the picture). But, there is an incentive to do so……
Cash Back: When you shop at some of the thousands of stores with coupon codes on Coupon Cactus, members can get paid Cash Back on their purchases. Sounds appealing, doesn’t it? For example, a member purchasing my Grandmother’s black shoes would have gotten the exact same deal (and used the same coupon code), but would have also earned 7% in cash back from Coupon Cactus. Coupon Cactus then pays the member via check or paypal. The cash back earned is from Coupon Cactus, not from the merchant……..Coupon Cactus basically shares some of the commission they earned from the merchant.
With Cash Back….members get paid quarterly. It just accumulates until a certain date (posted clearly on their website under FAQ’s).
FEEDBACK: My coupon code worked easily at checkout with no problems, but it’s possible that a code could expire and no longer work. If that occurs, Coupon Cactus makes it real simple to notify them…..in that same pop-up box that gives you the coupon code, there’s a place to click in order to report a problem. Super easy!
So, as this holiday season approaches, and more and more of us are shopping online, be sure to stop by Coupon Cactus and see if you can save even more money (or even earn a little)!
