Coupon codes and rebates

Many retailers offer coupon codes, which are similar to the paper coupons used at brick-and-mortar stores. To use these online coupons, you usually type the code (a combination of letters and/or numbers) into a designated "redeem coupon" box during the checkout phase of your purchase. Discounts vary, but common deals include 10 percent off, $10 off of purchases over $50, or free shipping.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Many of these coupon code Web sites are run by an individual, so they're unlikely to have an all-inclusive list of available deals and bargains. It's always a good idea to check with more than one coupon code Web site to find the best deal.
  • A few online coupon codes are for one-time use only, designed to be used by a specific individual. Many, however, can be used multiple times, and these are the codes that are often shared on Web sites and message boards.
  • One-time-use coupons codes can often be found for sale on auction sites and classified sites for a little less than the coupon is worth.
