Some Tips for Using the Coupons and Deals

Hello Readers! We just wanted to take a moment to offer a few tips for using the coupons and other deals that you see here at MyFavDeals.org, as well as other coupon websites. First of all, we want to let you know how much we appreciate your encouragement and support. Every coupon and discount site is different, and yet, there are a few similarities between us as well.

In the case of MyFavDeals.org, we strive to find coupon codes and other, non-coupon discounts in a wide variety of products and services. Let’s check out a few things that you’ll want to keep in the back of your mind while visiting and using the codes and deals, because it’s all about finding ways to help you save money!

  1. Assume that coupons are case-sensitive. Now, this is not true of ALL merchants, but for some merchants, they ARE case-sensitive. So, play it safe and copy the codes exactly as you see them.
  2. If, for some reason you cannot actually “paste” the code into the designated coupon or promo code spot (whether it’s in the “checkout” space or elsewhere), just type it in exactly as you see it. Some sites do not have the “copy/paste” functions enabled – so just make sure you’re copying it correctly.
  3. Take note of the expiration dates and “one-day-only” flash sale dates. We’ve yet to see a merchant not adhere to their own expiration dates. If you notice something that has a “1-day-only” date, and that date hasn’t arrived yet – or a “sale runs from (start date) to (end date),” make a note of it and put it on your calendar so that you don’t miss the sale.
  4. If you miss a particular sale, don’t get disheartened – many merchants will come back a few weeks or months later and bring that item on sale again. If you see a particular “store” here at the site where you want to keep an eye open for upcoming sales, go ahead and bookmark it so that it’s easy for you to find. Also, the “Stores” are all listed HERE.Screenshot-of-searching for quadcopters
  5. Sometimes, you might not know which particular store might be carrying specific items. For example, “RC Quadcopters” might be offered by numerous stores or merchants, but you may not know which ones. In this case, check out the “Categories” page here – In the case of something like “Quadcopters,” you will likely find current listings under a category such as “toys and hobbies.” Or, you can also use the SEARCH BAR at the top right of the page and type in what it is you’re looking for. This way, ALL the listings that contain the word or phrase you are searching for will come up. Look at this screenshot to the right for an example – I typed “Quadcopter” into the search bar, and the latest listings (there are more, but you just can’t see them in the screenshot) that contain the word “quadcopter” show up.
  6. Some deals don’t have coupon codes, or the coupon code is embedded in the link. It really depends on the merchant. Some merchants do not use promotional codes at all, preferring to run very specific sales. Again, check the expiration dates. ALSO, some merchants control their pricing so that no matter WHERE you buy it, you will not pay any less say, at “Amazon” than you will at their website. For example, I can tell you with 100% certainty that if you were looking for a coupon code for something like a “Varidesk,” you simply will not find one, because the company has stipulated that the price will be the same everywhere, whether you buy it from their website, or from their Amazon link. And, because we actually use Varidesk (we did NOT get any special or preferential treatment or pricing – we just bought it full-price and love it), we do have our links for it here.
  7. Which brings me to Amazon listings. We have a special Amazon section HERE where, if we find that the best price for something seems to be on Amazon, then we add the link. We absolutely love shopping at Amazon, and I can tell you that I personally buy a LOT there. The service is excellent, and so are the deals. So, please bookmark our Amazon Store too! We’ll be building that part of the site out a lot more in the days to come.

Hopefully this helps you a little! Thank you again for visiting MyFavDeals.org, and please stop back often as we are serious about finding excellent deals for you!
