Frugal Friday! Be Social
I am always looking for savings; online, magazines, etc...I found this small article in AllYou magazine, December 17, 2010 issue.
The AllYou Ultimate Savings Handbook
Take advantage of exclusive deals offered by popular retailers through social media outlets.
Facebook-To score exclusive Facebook discounts, "like" your favorite stores, as well as websites that offer enormous arrays of retail bargains, such as simplybestcoupons.com and shopathome.com. You get updates as soon as the sites post new coupons.
Twitter-Sign up at twitter.com, then use the "Find People" button to see if your go-to retailers tweet sale updates and coupons. For exclusive offer, follow "@Earlybird," or use twitter.com/bargainfeeder and twitter.com/shoplocal.com, which sends deals from various sources.
YouTube-Although not as commonly used for online shopping as Facebook and Twitter are, the video site is picking up its share of e-tailer bargains. Look for deals on your favorite brand's YouTube channel. Popular ones include Dell, QVC and Target.
