I am the quintessential Discount Queen. I absolutely LOVE getting a discount / bargain. Even if I don't need the item, I will buy it if it is on sale / on special offer. I have a cupboard full of 'buy one get one free' stuff. I dream about sales like other people dream about sex.
Almost as good as finding a 50% off deal on an item you really wanted, is sharing the news about special deals with my friends (or even strangers). And so I am v v excited to tell you about my BILs new venture - Extreme Coupon. I've heard that coupons are a big thing in the States, but not so much here in SA, which makes this even more exciting.
In a nutshell, what my BIL has done is go to various online outlets and negotiate discounts with them. They issue him with a list of coupons (discount vouchers) which he makes available to the public. At no cost to the public. So if you want to shop at Zando or 5Rooms or Kalahari or Wantitall or lots of other online retailers then you first go to his site http://www.extremecoupon.co.za/, get a coupon/discount voucher and then click over from his site to the online retailer. When you purchase from the online retailer you enter in the coupon code and voila - you get the discount. No extra effort on your part, no extra cost either.
When he first told me about it I was like "what's the catch?" And he said "there is no catch". I told him that is impossible because it sounds as if you are getting something for nothing and he said exactly. He gets commission from the online retailer, the online retailer gets more business and the consumer gets a discount. WIN-WIN-WIN!!!!
So, go do yourself a favour and visit his website http://www.extremecoupon.co.za/ (or like his Facebook page to get regular updates about special offers / discounts https://www.facebook.com/extremecoupon) and score yourself a little bargain.
It's a pleasure
(Oh wait, I just remembered something that is even BETTER than finding something you really wanted unexpectedly on sale. It is buying something you really want and finding out at the till that it is actually on sale!!! A surprise bargain!)
