6 Basic Discounts You Might Be Missing Out On

2 Minute Read

Love saving money, but hate clipping coupons?

What if you could bypass all the boring parts of couponing and enjoy all the benefits? Maybe you can. Here are six basic discounts that require little, if any, extra effort.

Don’t miss out!

1. Upload Digital Coupons

More and more supermarkets are allowing customers to upload coupons directly to their in-store rewards cards. All you need is an Internet connection and about two minutes of your time. Take that, Sunday circulars.

2. Submit Any Rebates

Rebates are annoying. And retailers and manufacturers know it. Thanks to modern technology, though, rebates are becoming easier to submit online. Just don’t forget to do it. The sooner you do, the sooner you’ll be spending that $25 check six to eight weeks from now.

3. Talk to Your Cashier

This is a simple one. Like, super simple. The only effort required is that you talk to your cashier. Politely ask if you’re missing out on any coupons or discounts. They may have some coupons left over from another customer or a special code they can ring up. Just ask!

4. Use Your Wellness Benefit

Does your workplace reimburse a certain amount of your gym membership? Or does your health insurance provider partner with particular health clubs? If so, turn in the necessary receipts, or take advantage of this awesome benefit. Losing weight may cost less than you think.

5. Redeem Your Loyalty Points

Each time you scan a rewards card, you’re earning points. But are you redeeming them for cool perks like discounted gasoline or free hotel stays? You should be. Use them before you lose them!

6. Be Flexible With Travel

Airlines and hotels usually discount their rates during off-peak seasons and on less popular days. So go online and play around with your dates before you book your next trip. For a sizable enough discount, it may be worthwhile to change your travel plans.

Traditional coupons are a great way to save, but they aren’t the only option. So look around you and take advantage of all the basic discounts you may be overlooking.

It’s a shame to miss out on money this easy.
