To maximize your savings, plan ahead on the stores that you will visit and get coupons ready via stores’ websites and social media sites.

Store Coupons and Deals

For example, clothing coupons can be found on the Target app or various deals are available from Kohl’s through its email and app campaigns.

Waterford Lakes Town Center and Orlando International Premium Outlets also have discounts available online.

Facebook Likes

More coupons can be found when you “like” the Facebook pages of your favorite merchant. Gap Brands frequently post deals on their Facebook pages. These sales are often not publicized and available only to consumers that mention them – so don’t forget to do so.

Ask for Discounts

Lastly, put a friendly smile on your face and ask the cashier if there are any additional savings or coupons available.  Stores are going to be anxious to reel in consumers during this heavy spending season – the savings are out there and sometimes you just have to ask for them.

Happy Shopping!  And Saving!
