Note from The Thrifty Couple: Denise shared this story with us and said we could pass it along to you.
I bought the Christmas Planner a couple of weeks ago. It has been so great and so helpful. In fact, even on the first use, I saved 50% off of ONE item – a total of $25! The planner and the tips you shared here are the steps I followed and in a few minutes had that savings in my pocket.
Here’s the example of that item so that others can see what I did: a toy from the Mindware catalog was the first of my child’s wish list. So I applied the planner and tips to the VERY FIRST toy on the list. I wrote down the item and the price point – which was this drill and design toy that was selling for $39.95.
So my price point was $39.95, plus the shipping of $9.99 for $49.94 total!
So, it was on the wish list, but I really didn’t want to spend $50 for ONE TOY. However, I decided to see if I could get a better price or deal. I kept my eyes opened, used Google Shopping and camelcamelcamel.com to keep watch of the prices.
Then I received notification that Amazon had dropped the price to $25 with FREE SHIPPING! This is literally half the cost, saved with little effort with just a little planning (note from The Thrifty Couple: it’s not $25 now as the price has gone back up). My $1.99 investment and few minutes of planning made this gift possible for my little guy!
Price from Amazon with FREE shipping – already purchased and arrived!
THIS IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG!
I have already saved so much money on not only gifts, but the traditional meals, the specialty foods and much more using this planner.
Thank you so much!
