save-on-electronics

Savings on electronics….

Smart phones, e-readers and printers are not included (unless part of a bundle with a computer). Tablets, laptops and desktop computers are all included.

Make a plan today for what you want to buy this weekend. Start hunting through the ads online to see who has the best deal this weekend.

Best Buy, Target and Walmart all price match their competitors price, their own online price AND Amazon.com prices. If you find it for less online then have them price match for extra savings.

Make sure to keep an eye on Amazon.com – they can’t get your business by having you walk in their door but they typically offer some great online deals during these tax free weekends.

smart-phones

You phone is your friend…

Most stores now have an app, if you know where you will be shopping then download the app to your smart phone before you head out so you can access the coupons.  If there is no app then visit their website before you head out and sign up for their email updates. Most of the time you will get an email with a % off coupon just a few minutes after signing up. Most stores will just scan the coupon right from your phone.

My 2 favorite apps…

Target Cartwheel – 5-50% off select merchandise with new deals being added all the time.

  • This weekend is
    • 25% off select backpacks
    • Extra 20% off select kids clothing
    • Extra 5% off Up&Up school supplies

Retail me Not App – This is a must have app. Coupons are added all the time. There are always new coupons and you can check for them just by typing in the name of the store you are standing in.  Find your coupon, show your phone to the cashier and get the savings.

Don’t forget!  Extended hours this weekend at West Town Mall, Knoxville Center Mall and Tanger Outlets.
