Forbes | More Holiday Shopping Savings Tips

by Marcia Brixey | October 22, 2012

Last week I shared lots of tips for saving money on your holiday gift shopping. Since then I’ve discovered several more tips and websites to help you save money.

  • Rather Be Shopping  – helps consumers save money with coupons both in-store and online at over 800 popular retailers. Consumers present the coupon at checkout and the cashier scans your iPhone. The site also has coupons for numerous restaurants.
  • AlbinoPhant Blog  — headquarters for White Elephant gift ideas and parties. The website shares some unique and fun white elephant gift exchange party activities. The site provides a step-by-step instruction on how to play each game.  Use these ideas to host wacky white elephant parties for your holiday gift giving exchange.
  • Slice – organizes your online shopping. The application tracks your packages; keeps your purchases organized and helps you save money. It shows you where you spend your money to help you manage your budget (aka spending plan). It will notify you if a recent purchase has a price drop to allow you to recoup the difference.
  • RedLaser – another iPhone/Android application that helps you save money. Scan the item’s bar code to find prices from competing stores and online merchants.

There are just a few of  the many websites and applications to help you get the best bang for your buck with your holiday shopping.
