1. Automate Coupons
Let’s start with the obvious: there are already a lot of coupons and deals floating out in the world, and thanks to the internet, you don’t need to wait for them in the mail to use them. Install an extension like Coupons at Checkout or Couponsohot app and get automatic coupon codes for a ton of retailers all over the web.
