I’m known in my family as the go-to Deal Finder so, naturally, I know all of the best deal websites.
If my Dad needs a new pair of shoes, he calls me to find a coupon. If my daughter needs a new lunchbox, I scour the web for the best buy.
I LOATHE paying full price for something.
If you look hard enough and have the patience to wait for a sale, you can find a coupon or discount for just about anything you need to buy. And the internet is an Uh-Mazing resource for all things frugal. So, to help you save, I’ve rounded up my ultimate list of the Best Deal Websites Ever!

Best Deal Websites for (Basically) Anything
Hip2Save – My Favorite
This site is my absolute favorite, go-to deal website. If you’ve never been to Collin’s site, you are absolutely missing out.
I check Hip2Save multiple times each day. The website is incredibly easy to navigate and it’s not bogged down with a TON of ads, as so many deal websites tend to be.
Plus, you can download the handy dandy Hip2Save app to your smartphone to never miss a deal. Collin posts deals, discounts, coupons, and freebies for a wide variety of products, restaurants, and services. From high-value coupons for common household goods like laundry detergent to Free Entree offers at national chain restaurants, you can find it all on her site.
Amazon, enough said.
Okay, I’ll elaborate…
I have saved SO much money shopping on Amazon. Whenever I need any type of consumer good (bug spray, new toaster oven, light bulbs), I check Amazon first. From my experience, Amazon has the cheapest price 95% of the time.
But what do you do if you need something sooner than 2 days? Get a retail store to price match the same product to Amazon’s price. Best Buy, Target, and Walmart are all stores that have price-matched various products for me. Just don’t be afraid to ask!
Much like Hip2Save, this site has loads of coupons/deals/freebies to keep you in the loop and save you loads of cash. It’s not too overrun with ads so it doesn’t feel too “spammy”, and it is also very easy to navigate.
Here’s one you probably haven’t heard of…
Woot!, started in 2004, claims to be the “original daily deals site”. Now owned by Amazon (what isn’t, right?!), Woot! offers “special daily deals and other limited-time offers across seven categories”, such as home and kitchen, electronics, and tools and garden.
And many of the products listed on Woot! are at least 50% off the regular list price. Also, the great thing about Woot! is that Amazon Prime members get Free Standard Shipping. Score!
Best Deal Websites for Local Savings
So, if you haven’t heard of Groupon, then it’s pretty safe to say that you’ve been living under a rock.
Just in case though, Groupon is another deal website that offers a wide variety of products and services at a deep discount. Specifically, Groupon specializes in vouchers for local, franchised and independent restaurants, salons, and retail stores.
On the rare occasion that we do go out to eat, I check to see if Groupon has any good deals available for restaurants near me. Also, I recently booked a hotel room through Groupon and saved over $50 off the cheapest rate that I could find any place else.
Sign up to receive emails from Groupon and they will email you with new deals. Also, download the Groupon app to get easy access to all of your voucher purchases. Plus, if you sign up for emails, be on the lookout for great invitation-only offers. One of my favorites is a $10 Starbucks voucher for only $5.
If you live in a metropolitan area, you may be lucky enough to have access to local deals from LocalFlavor.
Much like Groupon, LocalFlavor specializes in half-off deals for local merchants. The best part, though, is that LocalFlavor often sends out emails with special coupon codes for an additional 25-50% off vouchers that are already discounted 50%.
Whenever I get one of these special codes, I tend to buy a few different deals to save for a rainy day. For instance, I can get a $20 gift voucher for a favorite local sandwich shop for just $5. Can’t beat that for a cheap meal out!
A close match to Groupon, LivingSocial also offers up discounted vouchers for local restaurants, salons, and attractions.
Best Deal Websites for Online Coupon Codes
The mother-load of online coupon codes, Retail Me Not provides over 500,000 coupon codes and offers for more than 50,000 online retailers. If you’re looking for a coupon code (and don’t have Honey installed to find it for you), then start at this site. If there’s a coupon code out there for what you’re looking to buy, chances are that Retail Me Not has it. Plus, they partner with different retailers on a weekly basis to provide exclusive coupon codes.
Prefer to not spend your time searching for a coupon code, let Honey do it for you! Simply join Honey here, and shop online like you normally would. When you get to the checkout page, look for the special Honey icon, click, and let Honey automatically find the best coupon code available. Saving money, simply! Doesn’t get much better than that! Go here to find out more!
Best Deal Websites to Save at the Grocery Store
Kroger shoppers NEED this super simple and helpful site in their bookmarks! As a fellow Kroger shopper, I can tell you from experience that I have saved so much moola by searching this site for weekly deals. Katie, the site owner, does the legwork for you by matching available online and newspaper coupons to the weekly sales. And she also provides the links to print the coupons that you need. Plus, her site is updated several times a day with new deals. I have scored so many FREE products that I would have never known about without Kroger Krazy.
If you prefer to shop at Publix, then check this site out. I Heart Publix is basically the Publix version of Kroger Krazy. Weekly ads and available coupons are matched to let you know about the best deals at Publix grocery stores.
Coupons.com is basically a HUGE database of printable coupons for grocery and household items. The coupons are searchable by category, brand, and specific store so it’s easy to find the coupons that you need and match them to weekly ads.
Don’t see a site for your specific grocery store in this list? Just do a quick google search for “Enter Store Name Deals” and see if there’s a website out there dedicated to your store.
Best Websites to Earn Cash Back and Gift Cards
Swagbucks is the “web’s most popular rewards program”. And for good reason. Members earn points for doing everyday things online, like searching the web, watching videos, online shopping, and finding deals. The points can then be redeemed for cash and gift cards. The company has already paid out over $250 million, in the form of paypal deposits or gift cards to its members. Join for Free today!
Rakuten (formerly named Ebates) is another great deal website for finding online sales and earning cash back on your purchases.
And it’s super easy to use. Just go here to sign up (it’s free), and then start at the Rakuten homepage when you have some shopping to do. Click on a retailer from the Rakuten homepage and buy what you need.
Rakuten recognizes that you have made a purchase through their link, and they automatically credit your account with the amount of cash back that you earned. There are no forms to fill out, and no tracking down your own rebate.
Why not get cash back for a purchase that you were going to make anyway?!
