Several retailers have deals this week on discounted gift cards -- a great way to score a triple play in the savings game.
Your initial savings is on the discounted gift card. Pay $40, for instance, on a $50 gift card, and you've already saved 20 percent.
Then, use that gift card to purchase items that are on sale -- your second layer of savings.
And finally, be sure to use coupons, and you've achieved a triple play in couponing.
In case you missed them, here's a round-up of the various discounted gift card deals available:
Just in time for the holidays, Goodberry's is offering two deals for frozen custard fans on a budget.
Deal 1: Through Dec. 24, you can pick up a $20 Goodberry's gift card for just $15. That's a 25 percent discount.
And Deal 2: In honor of its 25th year in business, the Triangle-based creamery is selling a 2013 calendar loaded with coupons.
The calendar contains three coupons per month, one of them for a completely free item each month, according to Henry Brathwaite, Goodberry's director of marketing. The value of the coupons totals more than $130.
A few examples of the freebies:
When the battery in my car died recently, my husband took it in for a replacement. I was so relieved to have my car start that I didn't really give the $100 price tag a second thought.
Until later that same afternoon when a coupon for $20 off arrived in the mail from the very place we had purchased the battery.
For a frugal-minded person like me, it was hard to accept that I had spent $20 more than necessary.
You can probably guess where this story is headed.
Straight back to the auto parts store to ask if they might accept the coupon after the fact.
And guess what? The store took it. In fact, the sales staff was especially gracious about it.
Cha-ching. $20 saved. And all it took was a question.
Which leads me to this.
When you want to live frugally, or circumstances require you to live frugally, it never hurts to ask.
Here are a few other ideas for saving money, one question at a time:
