3 Favorite Money Saving Websites; 2010

3 favorite money saving Websites for 2010

1)   www.gazelle.com  Gazelle is a company that will buy your old cell phones, laptops etc…  It is super easy you go to the website and  follow the prompts for the item you would like to sell.  They then ship you a box with a prepaid envelope. You put your item in the box, ship it and get a check or paid via paypal a few weeks later.  I recently did this with my old Blackberry and got $56. 

2)   www.groupon.com Groupon is a company that offers specials for services and items in cites across the US.  They have a new special every day and the savings are huge! For my sister’s Birthday this year I searched Groupon where she lived and found Trapeze lessons at a respected Trapeze institute near her for half off!  It was something she always wanted to do and I got a great price.  Win,  Win.

3)   www.upromise.com  Upromise is a company I have used for a long time.  Anyone who has a child,  or a child in their life (niece, nephew, etc..) should sign up with Upromise ASAP. Basically a certain % of the money you spend goes towards a 529 plan for your chosen  child.  Anytime I order flowers I go to Upromise and then link to FTD or one of the other flower companies on the site.  They donate, on average, 10% of what I purchase in my son’s 529 account.  It may not seem like much but you would be surprised how quickly all the little things add up. There are tons of stores who participate (Nordstroms, Target, Shutterfly, drugstore.com, Macy’s, etc..)  Free money towards education is a good thing. 

  • Turbo Tax is offering a 6% incentive  and H&R Block 8% through Upromise.
