7 Shopping Tips To Help You Give More and Spend Less

BlogHer Original Post

If you put all of these tips together, you might get super lucky and wind up with a deal like this:

Buy $100 worth of Kohl's gift cards at your grocery store, using a credit card that earns points on your purchases, and get back a $20 OYNO coupon for groceries. (Extra bonus for using a credit card that is doubling grocery store purchases and for buying that gift card at a grocery store that also gives points for gas -- or double points for gas, like my grocery store was.)

Take that gift card to Kohl's during the sale that gives you Kohl's cash for every $50 you spend.

Get back Kohl's Cash and spend those on more gifts, preferably small things to act as filler items, since you already used your gift card on big items. (Or, order online during the same sale, and use a coupon code found at RetailMeNot or provided by your favorite coupon blogger plus get free shipping!)

That's the perfect scenario for being able to give more while spending less. Coupon incentives, points earned, sale prices and free shipping and if you're lucky, something you bought will have a rebate attached to it.

Share your tips for giving more but spending less this holiday season.
