Do you ever have situations where you might have something that you love, but you know that you’re most definitely not using something to its full potential?
I most definitely have a few things that come to mind, with the first being my DSLR camera. Besides the fact that I barely ever pick it up anymore, even when I DO use it, I really don’t get much into the various settings because I honestly just don’t know how to use them all. Then there’s also our Ninja Coffee Bar. Even though we use it every day (and love it), I really don’t use it for much more than making coffee, even though I know I could get super fancy making lattes and all sorts of fun stuff. One of these days.
Another thing, which brings me to the subject of today’s post, would be different apps on my iPhone. And in particular, today I’m talking about my RetailMeNot app (who is very kindly sponsoring this post!).
I honestly don’t know when I first discovered RetailMeNot, but it was easily years ago while searching online for coupon codes. I am notorious for browsing the web for any sort of coupon codes I can find before I check out with a purchase online, and there have been plenty of times where a coupon code has shown up on RetailMeNot.
Up until recently, that’s pretty much what I thought RetailMeNot consisted of…just a great spot to score some coupon codes. Turns out, I was totally wrong!
So we’re just a couple weeks away from Christmas now, and I spent some time this past weekend going over my lists and seeing what else I needed to purchase and for who.
In need of some inspiration, I decided to open up the RetailMeNot app to see if there was anything that sparked an idea while also offering up some savings. But before I go any farther, let’s talk real quick about RetailMeNot.
Maybe it was just me, but did you guys know that they not only offer coupons, but also additional deals, cash back offers and discount e-gift cards on tons of stores AND restaurants??
And not only that, but you can actually combine codes with cash back offers to save even more (you can earn up to $30 cash back in one click)! FOR EXAMPLE…
Old Navy was having a sale on Sunday where the entire store was up to 60% off. Then on top of that, RetailMeNot is offering up to $20 cash back at Old Navy!! My original plan was to make it to the actual store, but then we got all caught up with playing in the snow and decorating Christmas cookies…
And it was just FUN. So I decided to just shop online once the kiddos were in bed. Sometimes that’s easier anyway, right!?
In the end, I saved about $40 on my order from the sale PLUS I earned an extra $10 in cash back from RetailMeNot. Score!!
Now, do you guys want to know how YOU can score an extra $250????

RetailMeNot made the savings SO easy, and these days, anything that makes life just a little easier and gives me more time to focus on the fun stuff during the holidays is right up my alley.
If you haven’t already gone ahead and opened up the app since reading, go do it now. And be sure to check out all of the RetailMeNot holiday deals, too. They’ve got deals on everything from gifts to decorations, electronics, clothing, beauty, and more! Actually, while browsing over the weekend, I noticed that the At Home store was offering Buy 1, Get 1 50% off on all holiday wreaths…
And since I had been in the market for one, I grabbed Lucas and we made a date out of it.
Shopping for wreaths certainly wasn’t the most fun experience for him (he must have asked half a dozen times where they keep all the “cars and cool toys”) but we had some fun with it, and he more than loved being my little photographer.
Had it not been for checking the app and seeing that, I probably wouldn’t have even known about the sale, but we walked out of there with a few new pieces of décor for the house that I’m really excited about!
But back to RetailMeNot…they’ve really just got SO many great offers, and from so many awesome retailers, too (like Macy’s, Kohl’s, and JCPenney, just to name a few!), but the cash back feature is definitely what I’m most excited about discovering.
OHH, and one more thing…if you’re a Chrome user, then also be sure to install the Genie browser extension. It’s basically like a little shopping concierge…it finds, combines, and applies all of your savings at checkout so you don’t have to.
Nothing better than scoring a great deal, right?! Where are all my other deal lovers out there?!
