The holiday period is when we do the most online shopping. Who can resist the ease of buying that last-minute gift with just a few clicks? There are more than a few gift ideas you can still make use of that don’t require physical delivery - make sure you make use of these coupon services to take less of a hit over the next few days.
There are a few coupon sites out there, such as Coupons.com, RetailMeNot, or DealCatcher. There are local sites like Groupon, ShopADocket, OzBargain, and LivingSocial. The list goes on. Sometimes browsing the coupon sites can offer the great gift idea you need.
But the best I’ve found, in my experience, is good old Dr Google. For music purchases, it can be easy to search for the service, such as Beatport, along with the terms “coupon” or “voucher”. Many such services offer an ongoing discount to those who look - Beatport always has at least a 15% coupon active.
Concert/gig tickets are another good last-minute gift, if you know your recipient’s tastes - and also another gift that can benefit from the quick coupon search. Try doing a similar search as before, but with Moshtix for 2014 festivals.
It can be easy to forget to do, and can even seem like a hassle, but keeping the “quick coupon search” rule in the back of your head can add up to quite a noticeable savings, especially when you’re buying gifts in bulk within a few days. It’s not entirely devious to devise your gift ideas around said coupons, either. Happy hunting!
