Have Coupon, Will Travel.

I am known for being a bit of a bargain hunter.  Not crazy coupon lady kind of stuff, just if there is a way to get a better price on something I am going to purchase anyway, why not use it.

One of the best ways I have found to save a few bucks, is to sign up for e-mail newsletters at the stores that I routinely buy stuff from. What I am really after are the “percent off” coupons within those e-mails such as this 15% off coupon from Dunham’s Sports.Dunham's Sports 15% Off Coupon Read more of this post

Dear Blockbuster Mobile Product Manager,

First off. I love Blockbuster Online. Many others have embraced your competition and given up local movies altogether for online only queues and streaming services or they prefer to stand in a line on a Friday night at the RedBox in their grocery store.
