I get the best deals at Kohls. Things were already on sale, then we got $15 for every $50 and used a 25% off coupon on top of that. When we tallied it up we ended up with about $800 worth of stuff for $160. The best deal of all were King size sheets that I got for around $9 a set after all the discounts! We had been living on 2 sets of sheets washing one when the other was on the bed for the last year! Buying king sized sheets is no joke!

I like rewards. We use our travel rewards Visa for everything (and pay it off monthly, so the rewards are truly free to us) and when I shop online I use ebates whenever possible. I also get a discount program through my employer, so I am often able to use ebates, the discount program and pay with my rewards card and significantly lower my effective cost of a purchase. In person, I will use store loyalty cards wherever they will let me have one that I can just enter my phone number. I will not carry an physical loyalty card. Fred Meyer, for example, gives a percentage of purchases back in store credit each quarter.

When buying clothes, I always search online for any stacking deals for wherever I plan to shop.

So yes, I try to maximize rewards and discounts.

I don't usually shop at Kmart, but the Shop Your Way rewards program has saved me a fortune on video games this season.

We pay far less for gas than Costco charges with the points I earn at one of our grocery stores.

I have other rewards cards that I use, but those two have been saving me a bundle lately.

We gas up at superstore then save the rebates and use them for video games for the kids.
