Stay up-to-date on sales by checking discount and coupon aggregate sites, signing up for the email newsletters from companies and stores from which you prefer to shop, monitoring individual coupon sites, and checking the weekly ads for local retailers. Some retailers also offer weekly or daily sales emails, mobile apps that send deal notifications, or text message coupon services.
One method for staying on top of current sales is to check deal-hunting sites such as CouponMom.com, as these sites regularly post the latest promotions from national and regional retailers and include links or descriptions to relevant coupons. Many sites focus on chains or large retail stores accessible across the country, typically clothing stores and department stores, though many sites also publish details about grocery store deals in different regions.
If you prefer to shop at certain stores, check their websites for email newsletter sign-up options. This allows you to receive direct updates from companies about new sales, promotions and products. Some companies also offer special discounts for signing up. Sites such as Groupon.com offer coupons, discount vouchers and email alerts.
Many companies also publish weekly online sales ads that feature current promotions and offers. These companies may make the ads available through smartphone apps or offer special services that send you direct notifications when new sales are available.
