If you like Groupon, try out some of these other sites for daily deals:

Did you know...

If you decide you are going to buy a daily deal at Groupon.com, you can earn 3% cash back on your purchase if you connect through your ebates.com account? Just another way to earn some money back if you were already going to spend it on a deal from Groupon anyway. It's kind of like double dipping in the savings, right?

Shopping Out of Season

I have my son's entire wardrobe (minus a winter coat) set for next Fall and Winter. Am I nuts by buying ahead? It's certainly a risk since he's a toddler and growing very quickly but I've been pretty good at guessing about where he will be size-wise and shopping ahead for his clothes. You end up hitting all the clearances and whatnot. I recommend hitting up JCPenney when they do their 80% around this time and around the end of August and beginning of September for great deals on kids' clothes. I got my son's wardrobe for about 3-4 dollars a piece of clothing (long sleeve tees were less than 2 dollars or so a piece). I also check out the clearance rack at Carter's (especially when they do an extra 30% off), and the clearance stuff at Ross, Burlington Coat Factory, and TJMaxx/Marshalls. You can get some great deals. I've gotten shorts for a dollar! Check it out!
