Use Facebook to Save Money

Posted on April 23rd, 2012 by Discount Debbie

You may notice that a lot of our coupons and deals we post are associated with Facebook. Even we have a Facebook page that you can “like” and keep up with the latest savings. Facebook has become an amazing avenue for couponers and other Thrifty Divas to save money. With over 500 million active Facebook users online, it’s been a great way for advertisers and manufacturers to get the word out about their product and offer great savings for you.

Here are some great ways for you to save money using Facebook.

1. Coupons, coupons, coupons. We post all the time about coupons you can print just by “liking” a Facebook page.

2. Freebies. Facebook is an awesome place to find freebies too. Most companies want to drive people to their pages so they use freebies to do it. Generally you just “like” the page and then sign up for the freebie. It’s awesome.

3. Like your favorite pages for giveaways. I bet I enter about 20-50 contests weekly just by commenting on something.  A lot of the pages I like so giveaways often. It’s a great way to get to know other vendors as well as hopefully win some free loot. Here at Thrifty Divas we also will post deal for you. Have we mentioned we have a Facebook page you can “like.”

4. Through your friends. Yes, even the friend you’ve never met but you somehow became Facebook friends can save you money. Pay attention to what your friends post. I know when I get excited about a good deal, I post it. Word of mouth if very powerful for saving money.

5. New and Used Groups. This is a huge phenomenon going on, on Facebook groups. People are starting groups in cities that are basically online garage sales. In my opinion they are safer than Craigslist because you can see who they know and it just has a more community feel. I started one of these groups in our town and now we have over 2-thousand members. This is an excellent way to save money by buying used items. If you are interested in this types of groups, I will post later this week about how to start and moderate one.
