Many people (including myself) scour the Internet for online coupon codes and look for coupon books at stores. My first favorite website for scoring discounts on goodies is retailmenot.com. This little site is so easy to use - all you have to do is type in the store you want, and a list of coupon codes and printable coupons pops up - and when they expire. You can automatically go to the website of the store you want from the coupon code page. Or if you are an old school couponer, you can print it out.
Other than sites like these, there are sites that offer more popular and expensive brands in a "flash sale" type of deal. My absolute favorite is Hautelook.com. It's actually a Nordstrom company, which I think says alot about their reputation. Hautelook offers new events everyday at 8am pacific time with clothing, shoes, home decor, technology, and more up to 75% off. Events (flash sales) all end at different days/times, but they are sure to let you know. Membership is FREE, and you can sign up for the email alerts that send you new events so you'll always be aware what is on Hautelook so you'll never miss that sale. They have many popular brand names such as Jessica Simpson, Rebecca Minkoff, Madden Girl, Elf Cosmetics, Tarte cosmetics and more!
I've bought from Hautelook many times, and I am NEVER disappointed! I bought a makeup brush set by Elf through Hautelook for $13, when they normally retail at $30. I bought a pair of Sperry Top-siders for $45 when they normally run $100+. More recently, I bought my first Rebecca Minkoff MAC clutch for $120 when they are $250+. I also am currently awaiting the arrival of my Whitening Lightning teeth whitening kit that I have heard SO many good things about! I had been wanting it for so long, but it regularly costs almost $500. I paid $60 for mine - and bought one for ma for Mothers Day. You can't beat that amazing discount! I always get my shipments on time and have never had any problems!
Another site kinda similar to Hautelook that I think more people have heard of is Groupon. Not only does Groupon offer great discounts on vacation getaways, romantic weekend getaways, and your favorite restaurant, they also offer discounts on products such as spa trips, hair products, fashion, technology, and more! Just like Hautelook, membership is free. All you gotta do is sign up like any other website, and you are emailed various discounts. Some discounts are basically a coupon code type number that you are emailed after purchase. For example, I bought a $15 Groupon for $115 off Nume hair tools. I received the promo code in my email inbox, then went to the Nume website, where I then purchased my Titan 3 curling wands for a huge discount! Other discounts are immediate. For example, I just ordered a phone charger docking station for $15 and all I had to do was approve the transaction - given that your information and credit card # are already on file. I haven't bought any of the vacations yet, but you can be sure I will in the future!

I urge you to try these websites out if you are an extreme shopaholic like me or even if you just want to save some money on a really great product. Have you tried these already? Or do you have other websites that you love? Let me know!
