Save money with these discount tips

You don’t have to be an extreme couponer to save money on your everyday purchases. Check out these simple tricks to keep more money in your pocket:

MOVING? | Fill out a change-of-address form with the United States Postal Service to be sent a packet containing home improvement, furniture and home decor coupons to use toward your new home.

LIKE OR FOLLOW | Follow your favorite brands, like TruStone Financial, on social media to hear about sales, giveaways and discounts before anyone else. Plus, exclusive promotions are held on social media accounts to help their followers save even more.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY | Sign up for emails from your favorite restaurants to receive a discounted or complementary birthday meal.

GO DIGITAL | Couponing isn’t limited to printing at-home coupons or cutting them out of a magazine, there are numerous couponing apps available for download on your tablet or smartphone.

THE WAITING GAME | Often retailers have software to note when you’ve left your online shopping cart with items in it. These indecisive shopping habits can then result in an email with special discounts ranging from free shipping to 10% off of your purchase.

REWARD YOURSELF | If you shop somewhere fairly often, consider signing up for their reward program. You’ll receive coupons and special discounts that you won’t find anywhere else.

CU REWARDS | Apply for TruStone Financial’s Visa Signature credit card and earn one point for every dollar you spend. Or you can apply for a TruStone Financial debit card which earns you one point for every $3 spent. These points are redeemable for rewards ranging from brand name electronics to vacation packages.
