Coupon Web Sites

When looking for senior discounts this holiday season, be careful not to overlook one of the oldest sources of savings - coupons. While coupon web sites may not provide senior specific discounts, many offer meaningful discounts on everything from travel to electronics.

Most online retailers provide coupon or promotional codes during the check out process. Enter these codes and the total amount will automatically adjust for the discount being offered. While many coupon sites may provide multiple codes for one retailer, you can usually only use one promo code, so check to see which one best serves your needs.

Online coupon sites are all free, and their search ability makes it much easier for you to find the deals you're looking for. They may provide you with a printable coupon that can be used within a retail store, or more often, provide information on promotional codes that are available at select online retailers.

Coupon Cabin
Coupon Cabin allows you to search by category or by retailer. They list both online promotional codes as well as printable coupons. While they list only large national chains, the site is free and does not require any registration.

Coupon Mountain
Much like Coupon Cabin, this site provides you with printable coupons for in-store purchases and promotional codes for online sales. This site covers thousands of retailers, making it easy to save as much as 25% on non-sale purchases.

Valpak.com
Many of you may be familiar with the Valpak blue envelope you receive in the mail, but did you know you can also find these coupons online. Valpak offers a list of their available coupons on their web site; all you have to do is print them off. Valpak allows you to search by geographic area and then by category to locate the discounts you are looking for.

The Promo Codes
If you're ready to act fast, Promo Codes carries limited-time coupons and information on sales at many retailers. The coupons on this site often expire quickly, but checking back regularly can land you some great deals.

Flamingo World
Flamingo World has a large selection of retailers that offer promo codes and lets you sign up for e-mail notification when particular retailers offer discounts. The site also has user forums in addition to a large section listing items that have recently been marked down.

CoolSavings.com
This web site has thousands of online discounts available, but they do require that you register with their site before allowing access to the coupons. As with all sites that require you to register, it is best to check their privacy policy to see what your information will be used for. Once you have registered, you can search for coupons by category, geographic location or by the store or manufacturer.

This list is far from exhaustive, but it's a good start in rediscovering the fruitful world of coupon discounts on the Internet.

 
     
  This week, we bring you some of the discounts available in our SeniorDiscounts Card program. The following discounts and over 130,000 more can be found at www.seniordiscounts.com. Included in each listing is the phone number, address, map of the location and more. Remember - we add more discounts every week.

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Facts:

Dimensions:
Desired dimensions are a minimum of 65 feet tall and 35 feet wide. They are dense and have "character." Trees 75 to 90 feet tall are preferred.

Farthest distance traveled:
The farthest distance a tree has ever traveled to Rockefeller Center was approximately 518 miles in 1966. That tree was from Ottawa, Canada.

First time aired on television:
The first nationally televised Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting was in 1951 on the Kate Smith Show. It was again lit in 1954 on the Howdy Doody Show.

Recycling:
In 1971, the tradition of recycling the tree began. Since 1974, the mulch has been donated to the Boy Scouts of America and used at their camps as ground cover to combat soil erosion and to create paths. Each year's tree provides almost 3 tons of mulch. In addition, every year the largest part of the trunk at the base of the tree is offered to the U.S. Equestrian Team, headquartered in Gladstone, NJ, for use as an obstacle jump. Team members happily point out previous Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree trunks to visitors to their training grounds.

 
     
 
 
 

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
