Cheapskating through the Web

June 10th, 2008 . by Melissa

Jason used to be the worst one, he was addicted, and I mean hooked-up-to-the-source-with-a-needle-in-his-vein-addicted to SlickDeals.net. I believe he still has some sort of compulsion to the website but his own preferred form of rehab must have been a semi-success. Unfortunately, I fell into the dark grotto known as spouse pressure and am the new self designated Slickdeals devotee of the Newly Newman Family. At first my interest in Slickdeals was only somewhat piqued, if my interest were a salsa it would be mild. Most of the daily deals featured discounts on computer supplies and car parts. It wasn’t until I dug deeper for the deals that I found myself a consumer consumed by the endless promises of discounts and savings. And now I scour the forums of Slickdeals.net everyday for sometimes limitless amounts of time craving the need for dollar off coupons and bogo codes. Here are a few of my findings:

Video Camera Tri-Pod $10 plus shipping or free using Google Checkout (FREE!).

Free samples of Caulking, the perfect amount to recaulk our kitchen sink.

Free samples of Arm and Hammer toothpaste, my favorite.

Free samples of Dove bodywash.

Free samples of Mach3 razor and razorblades (for Jase, although he is bearding it up these days.)

$10 off a $10+ purchase for Illuminations.com (1 candle FREE with free shipping!)

2 years free of Fitness magazine.

1 year subscription to Redbook for $3.

Behr Paint, $5 off at Home Depot.

50% off plus, $25 off a $50 purchase at NY&CO.

Buy one shrub, get one free at Home Depot (great for landscaping our new home!)

Lowes, $10 off a $25 purchase.

$10 off a $10+ indoor tree at Lowes.

I took a survey found on Slickdeals for a $20 giftcard to Amazon.

My total profit: $207
