Just the Tip: Online Coupons
It happened. You’ve been online shopping for three hours and 27 minutes, and you found it. That perfect Helmut Lang blazer for your job interview that says, “I promise, I’m a capable human being. My English degree was not a total waste of time. My parents hate my life decisions.” You’re all jacked up like a teenager in line to see The Hunger Games, and ready to hit “Confirm.”
STOP (collaborate and listen). Before you complete your purchase, ask yourself, “Is there a coupon code out there?” Sure, there are plenty of sites that can help you track one down, like Retail Me Not, but your approach to locating a site’s coupon codes should resemble the way you stalk your ex’s new girlfriend: Facebook, Twitter, Google searches, and renting the apartment next to hers (you know, the usual protocol).
We know the idea of couponing makes you feel like a suburban housewife saving 50 cents on off-brand laundry detergent, but when that 30% discount code you discovered saves you a ton of cash, you’ll be so thrilled that you’ll forget you’re interviewing to be a receptionist at a glue factory.
If you can find me another fashion blog that can flawlessly reference Helmut Lang and glue factories, well, I’ll buy you a drink (kidding, no I won’t).
