Here you'll find thousands of coupons, coupon codes and deals to use when shopping online. Unlike most coupon sites, we're a one-person "boutique" operation (and have been since 1999), so must be selective both about the merchants we feature and the sales, discounts, clearances and coupon codes we post each day. We don't want to make saving money difficult, so unlike other coupon sites, we don't hide the coupon codes behind links, seed our site with annoying pop-ups or partner with fly-by-night merchants. If you'd like to be notified by email when we add new coupons and discounts, create a free account by clicking the "Deal Alerts" link above. We don't rent or sell our list to anyone; it's used only to send you updates. New coupons also are posted daily to our Twitter feed. Finally, we have a popular ebook that details the 101 best deals online, available for 99 cents for the Amazon Kindle, iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, Barnes and Noble nook, Kobo Reader or any other eReader or eReader software. Or receive a free PDF version with any order at Best Deal Magazines.
For his book, The Cheapskate Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of Americans Living Happily Below Their Means, Yeager traveled the country to hang out with and interview about 300 self-proclaimed cheapskates. He found that rather than being obsessive coupon clippers or bargain hunters, most didn't spend much time thinking about money. While he encountered a few oddballs, such as families who pull groceries out of Dumpsters, most just spend less than the average American. Yeager found that his subjects, who he calls "premeditated shoppers," said they only regret about 10 percent of what they purchase, compared to 80 percent of all Americans. As Yeagle told the New York Times: "For the cheapskates next door, debt still stings. They recognize the difference between affordability – 'can I truly afford it?' and what I call borrowability – 'can I borrow enough money to buy it?' Most Americans confuse the two, and that's a root cause of the current economic debacle."
