Saving Big at RetailMeNot.ca

I’m like most people and love a great sale. Yet, I take this a step farther since I rarely buy anything at full price. In fact, one good friend of mine makes a creaking sound when I get out my wallet. True story. 

The thing is, I know there are sales out there and when you save a little here and there – it adds up fast!

Yet I know all too well how hard it is sometimes to find that deal. You could subscribe to every newsletter out there and study the flyers each week – but I don’t have time for that. I get enough emails as it is and once in a while I get frustrated by so many, and go on a mad unsubscribe-spree. This of course, leaves me with that dreaded feeling that an awesome sale will come up on something I need, and I will miss out.

Then, I got an email asking me to check out RetailMeNot.ca, and participate in a shopping challenge {#RMNchallenge} with a gift card. The mission was to see how much I could save. Right away I checked out the site and liked what I saw, and knew this was an online resource that I had to check into further. So, accept this challenge I did!

RetailMeNot.ca is an offers site that gathers the best in-store and online deals for some of your favourite retailers. Established in the states for a few years now, RetailMeNot.ca is new to Canada and aims to help every Canadian develop savvy spending habits on some of their most common purchases. 

I decided my purchases using RetailMeNot.ca would be ideal, meaning I would scour for some great sales yet at the same time, purchase based on what my family needs and wants. After all, a sale is only a ‘sale for you’ if that item is needed. 

 

Children’s Place

With summer coming quickly {yay}, the girls need some new lighter clothing, along with some essentials like leggings and cardigans. Not only are they outgrowing clothing quickly right now, but I’ve come across so many of their pants and leggings that have holes in the knees. I chalk it up to having a new puppy, they crawl around after him all day!

RetailMeNot.ca told me that Children’s Place was having an ‘Up to 70% off clearance blowout’. Perfect!

I ended up buying 2 pairs of leggings, a tunic and a cardigan for the twins at Children’s Place.

 

Original Price, with tax: $98.49 
I spent, with tax: $53.08 {boo to the shipping on this one}  
Savings: $45.41 {or saved 46%}

Bath & Body Works

RetailMeNot.ca also has a section of freebies on the site, a section which I LOVE. In particular, this one caught my eye!

I printed off the coupon and at the same time I went to the mall for the birthday gift, and some Sears shopping – I stopped at Bath & Body Works too. Redeeming my free product coupon was easy, or if I had spent more, $7.50 would have come off my total.

RetailMeNot.ca is so easy to use and has great categories to narrow down your search. Plus, they usually have many deals per store, so if you are shopping there – you can pick your deals based on the items you are buying. I’ve now gotten in the habit of checking the site from my phone, as I enter the store. Just to make sure I’m getting as much savings as I can.

There are also ratings for each deal, so you can see how many people used the deal – even on that particular day. The deals at RetailMeNot.ca change so much, it’s one to bookmark and check often – especially for those freebies that you will want to get your hands on {like my Bath & Body Works score}.

Lastly, there is such a variety of retailers and items listed on the site, so you can use it for clothing, health, services, and travel!
