UPDATE:  I realize that I learned about the Refund Cents deal very late in the game, and I apologize to all of you who couldn't take advantage.  In speaking to Michelle, the owner, she has agreed to give Wise Bread readers an exclusive preview that is good until the 21st!  Just use the following logon info:

Have Fun!

 

Refund Cents tops my list of money-saving websites. With coupon codes, a great reader community, and lots of last-minute and rarely-heard-about deals, it’s saved me lots of money over the last 2 years. Membership will cost you a bit, but for the next few days, you can use the site for FREE! Try before you buy.

This is not an affiliate offer. I don’t get anything from this. Yes, Michelle who runs Refund Cents, is giving everyone a chance to preview the site in hopes of getting a few paying subscribers from the deal. (That’s how I became a paying member years back.) If you’re at all curious what kinds of great deals are popping up every day across the country, this is a great site to browse.

Here are some of the reasons I’ve kept renewing my Refund Cents subscription for the past two years:

Last year, The American Girl website sold many of their toys and books for 29 cents and 49 cents. A free shipping code got me a whole bunch of great Christmas presents for less than $4!

One reader recently posted about an instant-win call-in promotion from HyVee that was listed very few places online. One hour later, I was claiming my $15 Target gift card for my daughter!

Several times a day, readers will share their unwanted codes for Pampers Gifts to Grow Program, the Coke Rewards incentives, or one-time use Free shipping codes. These go fast, but it’s great that they share!

The Comprehensive Guide to Walgreens Shopping is amazing! There is also an up-to-date CVS and Rite Aid section with dedicated deals for the ultimate freebie hound.

The Grocery Boards are organized by store. They list deals and coupon combos and are updated by the members. This is great for those of us who live in an area not serviced by the bigger couponing sites like Coupon Mom or the Grocery Game (which are both very good, as well.)

Michelle maintains a list of all printable and in-store only offer forms. This makes it easy to keep track of the best deals offline, too! Previews of the next week’s newspaper coupons and in-store deals can help me to plan ahead in my shopping.

Membership to Refund Cents is very affordable. On-line membership is about $1 per month. If you'd also like to receive the monthly print magazine RefundCents, in the mail, the cost is $25 per year and includes access to the website.

This website has been great for me. I don’t have a lot of time to hunt down deals or scour websites for the most relevant info, but this has given me a good balance of saving money and time. If you’re at all curious if the site could help you save, give it a look! With 29 years of experience, Refund Cents has been a valuable resource to my family.

The coupon preview option sounds interesting. We've only got until the end of today, huh? I was just about to start dinner, but I think I'll jump on this first.

You guys in the States are so lucky to have all these coupons and coupon websites. Here in New Zealand, we just don't get as much of that going on. Ah well, I'll save money in other ways :-)

Man, I think she might have a convert. I found several cool items including freebies on cereal, deodorant, cleaner and butter. Thanks, Linsey!

I was hesitatant to "pay" for a money-saving tool, but this has paid for itself more than 100 times over... If you're pinching pennies, just get the shortest subscription and skip the printed magazine.  Totally doable on most any budget.

Yes, I think I'll skip the magazine as well. I tend to be very resistant to print publications since we move around from time to time, and I can easily use the funds elsewhere. Not that we don't have ANY magazine subscriptions. I did Dwell last year, and my husband does and astronomy one or two. He used to do National Geographic, but we've cut that one too.

But for a buck a month . .  .I know I save enough today to cover the entire year's fee. Waiting until we close on the house, though.

Sadly the article came through Saturday morning. I'll have to think about doing it sight unseen.

Refundcents is definitely FANTASTIC! I joined several years ago just as you did during a preview and the savings haven't stopped yet! I highly recommend it for anyone looking to save money. You will not be disapointed :)

So...the article goes up on the 18th about a free trial on the 16th and 17th.

Good planning, there.

The article went up as soon as I knew about it.. on the 17th.  But I have worked out a deal with the owner of Refund Cents for an exclusive promo offer for our readers only.  I have edited the article, but the logon info will be:

This will work through Tuesday Oct 21.

Thanks to Michelle at Refund Cents for this deal!

I don't get it. The people on the boards seem to be buying stuff they don't really need (65 boxes of band aids, 40 packages of cheese?) just because it will be free or cheap. What do they have for normal shoppers?

Linsey, thanks to you for posting this and to Refund Cents for offering the free preview! After checking out the site today and snagging some real bargains at CVS, I will definitely be subscribing!!

Linsey Knerl's picture

I'll agree that not everyone will need that many items.  Some of them kindly donate their extras to charity.  Others freeze or store items to use all year long  (do you know how many blocks of cheese a family of 6 can eat in just 3 months?)  It's a delicate balance for many.  If I find even one really good deal on cold medicine or shampoo or something else I really like, I'll do the deal one or two times max.  It's worth it to get even a few items for free, even if you don't buy as much as others do.

Good to hear!  I am so jealous of those of you with a CVS.  Refund Cents always shares the good deals for that store, but sadly we don't have one for many miles.  We did just get a Walgreens in the next town, so I'll be starting there!

The print magazine used to be good, but I let my subscription expire because it just wasn't worth the price. It used to be twice the size it is now. Refunds like in the old days are practically nonexistent. As for the website, you can probably find all those offers on your own.

I just came across this post and thought I'd throw my 2cents:) in!! I joined Refundcents several months ago - site and magazine and couldn't be happier for doing so. My savings have already paid for my inital 3 month sub (thought I'd try 3 months at first to see if I liked it). I really do suggest getting both the mag and site as there are many things in each you can't get in the other. I've responded to several ads to get coupons for a miniaml handleing fee of $1 and have got TONS of really good coupons and high dollar ones too - lots of them. The people I've dealt with are fair, honest, and kind at least that's been my experience so far. This is most definently the best deal I've come across for a long time. I've got IP coupons on the site that I've not seen anywhere else as well as other posted deals not found elsewhere and believe me I'm all over. My reccomendation to you is is give the combo (site & mag) a 3 month trial and see what you think. It cost me $9.50 for that 3 months and now I'm a lifer!!! Not to mention that in that first 3 months my savings far exceed my inital $9.50!!!
