This time of year, you may be excited about the next round of school and you're diligently looking for deals and planning what resources you'd like for next school year. Or you may just be ready for summer vacation! Either way, I know you want to know more ways to save money for your family. I recently posted, "10+ Ways Homeschool Moms Can Save", but I've found one more that I wanted to share.
I recently searched for ways to save money online and found a blog post about "honey".
I've used the free membership for a couple of months and have found it to be a great tool. This is a great time to find deals on homeschool resources, but how do you know if it's the best time to buy or if you're getting the best deal? Honey gives you that info and more. You're gonna love this as you shop for next year's resources.
First, a general way to save some mullah that I've recently discovered: Honey. By joining HONEY for free:
1. you get notifications of deals and coupon codes on sites on which you already shop.
2. you can look at market selling trends for items to see if it's the best time to buy and...
3. you earn points toward cash back savings
Notice the screen shot here of one of my newly purchased resources for nature study.
There's a small button under the 5 star rating with a cursive "h" and it says BEST DEAL. This is the honey tool at work telling me this is the best price for this item.
Here's the second book I ordered.
Look again, at the button under the #1 Best Seller banner. You can see that honey has informed there has been 1 price change. I can click on it and it'll tell me more info.
You can see that accessing the drop down graphic leads you to a graph page. It shows me that this book recently went on sale. I knew it was the best time to buy. Pretty neat, huh?
As you shop on any of your favorite sites, you can access deals and coupon codes using the drop down menu when clicking on the orange "h" on the internet task bar of your computer.
You can see how many deals there are on Amazon, "180" from the icon on the toolbar.
But let's say, you remember you want to check for coupon codes at another site.
Here's a drop down for "thredUP", where you can sell and buy nice, but slightly used clothing for you and your children. It gives codes and trends.
* You CAN use Honey with Ebates and other savings sites as well-even groupon for eligible trips or items. For example, I just purchased a kidsafe oil from Plant Therapy. I activated my ebates percentage from the internet task bar and got 3.75% cash back on my purchase, but at checkout, I also got a notification from Honey that there was a coupon code, and so I then saved $2.69 off my purchase. By using the option, 'pay with amazon' at checkout, I saved another 3% because I have an amazon card. Not bad. Every little bit helps!
Want to try Honey? You can click here. If you join for free and start saving on the sites on which you shop, I get a referral bonus and you can too when you refer your friends! Once you have joined, the "h" will appear on your internet taskbar and you can make the best informed decisions on your resource purchases this summer!
I hope this helps save your family money! I've already enjoyed using it!
