It’s back to school time! For most families that means shopping for back-to-school supplies. For me it also means that my brand new Girl Scout troop is going to start its first full school year. I’m going to be hitting the craft store for our activities, and my local favorite is AC Moore. For both back to school and for my troop, I want to make those dollars stretch, and that means seeking out great deals.
Now for Girl Scouts, I decided the girls would make an adorable butterfly craft with the help of a toilet paper roll.
Here is what we used:
- Toilet paper roll
- Bobunny dot cardstock
- Pipe cleaner
- Googly eyes
- Hot glue
This craft was a huge (and easy) success.
But how to find the deals without waiting for coupons to clip from the Sunday paper? Let’s get real: how many of us do that anymore? Even my grandmother didn’t have time for it. We need those discounts on our phones now. That’s where Dealspotr comes in.
When we are doing our online shopping, we always come to the part that asks for a promo code. On Dealspotr, I’ve discovered that I can find codes not available on any other site. These include personal referral codes and multiple single-use codes, plus ongoing discounts I didn’t know about.
One thing I love about AC Moore is that they are awesome at giving their customers great discounts. When you first visit the AC Moore website, a window pops up to receive a great discount for signing up to receive their emails. I highly recommend this if you are a regular AC Moore shopper.
Next, you can get an additional benefit by signing up for their rewards program, in this case a $10 AC Moore gift certificate. Right on!
Finally, you can get a $10 AC Moore gift card by signing up for Freeshipping.com. These savings are really adding up!
But let’s say that you you’ve already used up your single-purchase discount and you realize you need to do more back-to-school shopping? If you try out the usual sites for promo codes, the options are often surprisingly pretty limited. I checked out RetailMeNot.com, and I did find the one single-use code not available on the website.
I discovered lots of sale items advertised (also useful), but those weren’t the items I was looking for.
I then headed over to Dealspotr, where I not only discovered two single-use coupon codes, but I also found another third-party option to search for discounts.
I decided to check out the Amazon link and found a number of craft items that are currently on sale. Choices, choices!
The bottom line? Bookmark Dealspotr when you need those promo codes, because its awesome community members are always on the lookout for the best deals and promo codes that they upload and verify. It has 5 million coupons and codes online that are continually updated and verified. More pro shoppers use Dealspotr to search for promo codes and discounts than any other site.
You can also join Dealspotr and earn points for gift cards! Get 2000 points when you sign up today. Members can follow AC Moore for deal updates that they share as they come up, helping online shoppers save.
I also really love the community feeling Dealspotr. Here are some other cool features.
On the homepage, you can browse the deals by category…
Your top interests…
…And by top stores.
There no reason to shop without a promo code again, and this is especially helpful for purchasing back to school wardrobes, Halloween party items and (dare I say this in August?) Christmas shopping.
It works like social media, where you can like and share deals and even comment. You can follow your interests and even receive email notifications on the latest deals posted.
You can also get recommended deals, as seen here.
Its fun getting to know the other pro shoppers and checking out what kinds of deals they like to share. With my special interest in movies, I love to share movie deals, so be sure to follow me @ReelMama if you join.
And if you’re running off to AC Moore for back to school, Girl Scouts and Sunday school like I am, don’t forget to grab your discount from Dealspotr!
