    I'm always looking online for bargains. I'm married with two kids, so we really need to make our budget stretch. I tend to use Groupon for local deals for restaurants. Amazon seems to be the best place for toys and such. I'm wondering what other places people have found that seems to be working for them. Let me know, what your favorite places for bargains are.

    It really depends on your country. Here in Portugal we have quite a few discount sites like Groupon that offer the best deals. Supermarket chains also offer big discounts and even in gas stations (Continente, Galp). If you ever come here let me know and I'll give you some hints. :)

    I have recently joined a website called befrugal.com . There are many deals that you can get at this site from various stores on line and off. I am currently not in the States, so the on line coupons are beneficial for me. You can get coupons for restaurants, retail stores or grocery stores. To see a sampling of some grocery store coupons, you can have a look right

    I've been finding more and more deals on Ebay, actually. It is really good when you know exactly what you want (sizes, styles, brands, etc.) but not great if you just want to browse, obviously. For clothes, I typically just shop the stores I know I like, but shop online during times of sales. I use

    whenever possible for online shopping, and during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, they raise all their cash back percentages. This site also gives any codes that exist for more savings or free shipping or whatever.

    For toys, I'm still a fan of thrift store shopping and consignment shopping. I also use Craigslist quite a bit. Again, when you know what you want, it is pretty easy to find the best deal.

    I never had tried befrugal.com so that's something to look at. I agree that if you know exactly what you want than craigslist and ebay can be a good source. So, that's some good advice. Thanks, guys! :)

    If I ever get out to Portugal, Caprica, I would definitely like the advice. Sounds like I have some new vacation ideas.

    I don't look for them that often (I limit them to buying domain names), but when I do I normally just type what I'm looking for into Google.

    I recently saw an episode of extreme discount coupon, or something, and I was blown away by just how much money you can make with coupon, some of them even walked away with the store owing THEM money.

    This happens sometimes. I was in a corner store once that was selling shaving cream for $1, but it had a instant manufactures rebate for $2. I sat there staring at it for a while to see what I was missing. Then I put about 6 in my basket and a few other items, just to test the waters. At the checkout, they actually did give money instead of the other way around. I went back the next day and all the shaving cream was gone.

    When it comes to coupons I have used Groupon. For the most part I had great savings and do my shopping at Amazon.
    These are 2 sites that I have had good experience. I am just beginning to explore other coupon sites and hope to find
    better savings.

    I've gone to the krazycouponlady for most of my coupons or news. Though, for other coupons for online retailers then I would go to a site like groupon.

    Groupon is the only website I look for good deal because that's only site I know about. I haven't tried another website, but I have forgotten the name, it's quite good but you have to find the best deal within a period of time. I got recommended by one of my friends who has always looked for good deal whenever she could. Other than that, I usually look for good deals on the paper in which I subscribe. But it doesn't usually have good deals like Groupon does.

    I often go onto a website called UKhotdeals which tracks good deals that are out and when they expire. It's pretty good for games and technology.

    'Mens Health' is by far the best source of coupons for supplements and other male health products. I've often bought it for the sole purpose of getting coupons giving a bigger discount than the cost of the magazine.

    I am subscribed to the subreddit /r/freebies and /r/efreebies on reddit. They have a lot of free products and samples. I once got a $20 game for free. They also have a subreddit for coupons.

    They are beyond just helpful. I also like coupons from companies from Bzzagent & influenster. You guys speak highly of Groupon I guess I should check it out.
