I really love to buy new video games, comic books and movies, but I also hate to spend my money. Which can be a bit of a problem, obviously. So in order to buy all the things and still be able to put food in our tummies, I have come up with some creative ways to save money while still getting all my geeky needs. And I’m going to share my tips with you in a new series: Geekmates Cheapskates!
A lot of big box stores will price match on their merchandise with other stores in order to get your business; even better, some will even beat a competitor’s price by 10%. SO you can almost always get an extra 10% off every sale you find!
1. Browse the flyers and find something you can’t live without (obviously).
2. Take the flyer to a different store. It’s important that the other store beats prices by 10% and doesn’t have it on sale for the same price. It has to cost more!
Keep in mind that you should only do this with things you would have purchased anyway. Buying more stuff for the sake of saving a couple bucks defeats the purpose of saving money. I still need a little work there.
Please share your ideas in the comments – maybe I can add your suggestions to this series!
Until next time!
