Save Money using SaveYa
With the holidays in full swing, I have found a way to save money shopping online. I am using this new strategy where I can save anywhere between 3% to 25% by buying unwanted gift cards. Using a site like Saveya.com, allows you to save immediately on top on coupons for a purchase you were already planning.
The Strategy of Saving Money with SaveYa:
This is how this strategy works:
- Visit your online retailers and place your wanted items in your shopping cart. Note that total amount.
- Go to Saveya.com and search for the online retailer that you were shopping at. Search for gift cards from major retailers like Victoria’s Secret, Best Buy, Brook Brothers, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, and Walmart. You’ll find gift cards that can be purchased at a discount.
- Purchase the gift card that suits your needs and SaveYa processes the order right away. You receive the gift card code right away And are able to use it immediately.
- Return to your shopping cart and enter the newly acquired gift card.
Buying gift cards from SaveYa and saving at the popular retailers every time you shop online is a great strategy.
I wished I have used this strategy when I was purchasing gifts from the Crate & Barrel and Bed Bath & Beyond wedding registries. My girlfriend and I spent about $400 on gifts this summer from those two places If I had purchased gift cards from SaveYa at a discount, I could have saved my at least $20 or 5%.
To fund this transaction, you can also sell some unwanted gift cards to SaveYa as well. This reminds me of when my brother used to give me a $40 Giftcard to the expensive outdoor retailer, Patagonia. Upon looking at their online website, I could not buy anything on their site beside socks with that gift card. Then, I came across SaveYa. I was able to sell my gift card for about $35 and purchase another gift card from a different retailer or take the cash. I opted for turning the gift card to cash since I didn’t need anything at the movement.
Following this strategy and trading in the gift cards you don’t want can help you save money allowing you to stay under your budget.
