There are more ways than ever to save money online. Some of these places are not precisely well-kept secrets, but they are also not widely thought of either! And luckily, it doesn’t take much time to search through these little known places. 

Check out the following five places for money-saving gems:

1. Target Deal Websites

Target is literally an obsession for some. And some of those have made websites around their passion! To find more great deals from one of the most popular stores, check out sites like for unique savings and the latest from the red bullseye. 

2. Instagram

Instagram has come a long way since it’s early days as a simple photo posting site. Instagram really grew into a social networking site that many small businesses, artists, creators, and just regular folks use heavily. Many brands, artists, and designers are using the platform for giveaways and contests. Following your favorites on Instagram can help find deals from local businesses and national brands. 

3. Ebay 

eBay isn’t quite as popular as it once was, with new sites like Amazon and Etsy. It’s not as well known that eBay has an entire section of their website that’s dedicated to coupons! It has some fun features, like the ability to search by your favorite retailers. 

4. Briefly Abandon Your Shopping Cart

This is one weird trick, but did you know that if you “abandon” your online shopping cart before check out, it can be a great way to get a coupon on that item, or even more. By not completing the checkout process fully, many brands will send you emails and other discounts. The trick here is to ensure that you have logged into your account with the store and provided your email address. 

5. Contest Sites

Many sites have popped up in the past few years devoted to nothin but contests. These can include everything from tech devices to gadgets to makeup and purses. Most will not excessively email you or ask for a lot of personal information. Of course, you can never be sure if you’re going to win, but you can be sure that you have a chance! And it only takes a few minutes to sign up for many of these.
