Sign up for stores' online newsletter to get discounts and coupon codes

I can't believe we're posting a hack that suggests adding to your email inbox, but this tip makes great sense. From Melitsa:

Usually we find a great online shopping site and through ordering get signed up to their newsletter. Instead, consider signing up to the newsletter first. They often send coupon codes, discounts and let you know when sales are coming. This way you can get discounts on your first order and learn about upcoming events & specials!

But be sure to have a separate email address just for this purpose. Or use OtherInbox - that's what I do.

Start a separate email address or you can funnel it through gmail and anything going to that address will go directly into a category box.

Either way, you won't clog up your inbox!

I like to use tjoos.com to search for coupon codes prior to committing to a purchase.

You must check out iStorez they have amazing deals and sales from all of the major retailers. You don’t need to sign up for a newsletter to receive the latest discounts!! I bought a pair of Joe’s jeans that were originally $200 marked down to $20. Here’s a link to the site



Thank you for the info. I have been looking for such a newsletter since long.

I will add it immediately.
