It’s likely that you have at least one friend who’s an expert at getting the best deals. They always know when things are on sale, they get cash back or credit card points on every purchase and generally know how “work the system,” especially when it comes to buying gifts at holiday time. Our tech expert, Omar Gallaga is one of those savvy shoppers.
“There’s a whole industry of web sites, and apps and deals built around the idea of getting you cash back, or the best coupon code or discount,” Gallaga says.
And key to making this cash-back industrial complex work is stacking – using multiple coupons, discount codes or deals on a single purchase.
What you’ll hear in this segment:
– What sites aggregate deals and discounts
– How deal sites make money
– What you give deal sites in exchange for all those discounts
Among Gallaga’s favorite deal sites are ebates, Honey, Wikibuy, RetailMeNot and Dosh.
