I can’t tell you how much money I’ve saved by being a savvy shopper. Doing something as simple as Googling for coupon codes or looking up discount programs has saved me money time after time. I’m by no means fanatical about this stuff (and I try to avoid buying stuff just because it’s on sale), but there are a ton of people who get really excited about finding deals. Many of them flock to online communities for deal sharing like Fatwallet, Slickdeals, and Savings.com. Whether you’re looking for a specific deal or just want to see what bargains are available right now, Los Angeles, CA based Savings.com offers that kind of information. You may wonder how a site that is focused on serving people who self-identify as being cheap makes money, but there’s no question that doesn’t seem to be a problem for Savings.com considering that they made the Inc. 5000 with 2,077% three-year growth to $19.9 million in revenue.
Right now Savings.com is promoting 10% off at Urban Outfitters, $10 off a $75 order at Macy’s, and 20% off at New Balance. These deals are often discovered and promoted by the Savings.com community, though Savings.com also has staff to curate the deals that they feature. Because Savings.com has an active community of people who like to buy stuff, they’re able to make money by collecting referral fees from the sales they drive. Surprisingly I don’t see any actual advertisements on Savings.com, but it does appear that they’ve developed strong partnerships with some companies through their Stores program. If you love being a smart shopper, then you’ll want to take a look at the Savings.com Jobs page. There aren’t a ton of opportunities posted right now, but they are looking for a PPC Specialist in Santa Monica, CA and a UI Engineer and iPhone Application Engineer in Santa Barbara, CA.
