If you've been part of the online couponing group, you've probably heard of this website. When I joined many moons ago it was a great way to find sales and coupons. It was one of the websites that I visited regularly.
However things change, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. In this case RefundCents has definitely gotten worse instead of better over time. I haven't found nearly as many helpful tools on the website as I used to, and actually feel like its more of a waste of time to even attempt to find something that would help me.
If there were things that were worth using the website then the website would be easy to use. Its designed well, at least the layout is done well. The content just isn't great.
I've also had some issues with Customer Service, emails not getting returned when I had questions. Which they used to have pretty decent customer service. It seems like the customer service department along with everything else has just dwindled over the years.
So I'm sorry to say, this is a website I would avoid.
Too much money
This site was recommended to me for grocery coupons and other deals. I decided to give it a try, but I have not been impressed with it, and I do not plan to continue using it. Since this is a paid site, I hoped that they would have better coupons and deals than free sites such as coupons.com. But even with a paid subscription, I did not find more coupons that saved me more money than I could find on a free website. I'd rather stick with the free sites.
I was hesitant to try a site like this in the first place if it wanted to charge me money. So I started at the shortest time frame for the lowest amount of money ($4 for three months). The best deal is $12 for twelve months, but I was not sure if I wanted to spend more money, even if it was a better value per dollar. But I was sadly disappointed. Due to the performance of the site, I feel that even the $4 was wasted money, and I do not plan to continue using it when my current subscription is up.
No thank you.
I am not sure how RefundCents.com is rated so highly on here, honestly. It is a discount site where you find coupons and tips. I ran across it a few years ago when searching for coupon sites. The website is INCREDIBLY outdated and you cannot get any information unless you buy a subscription. I would like to be able to see what the website actually had on it before I pay for full access to it.
The website is apparently celebrating it's 14th year on the web. I am pretty sure they have not updated their website the entire time they have been online. It looks so outdated and cheap [No pun intended, ha]. There are a few links on the left side but other than that it is a very bare website. They want to charge you for a subscription to the website. It is only $12 a year but why would I pay for this coupon site when there are other FREE ones that are MUCH better? The most noticeable part of the website is a picture of the founder and a list of her achievements. I think the website is just a money making gig for the company, honestly.
There are a ton free coupon websites online. They are modern and up to date. Those are an obvious choice over this out-of-date website.
Refunds Cents I knew you since "Refunds Make Cents"
I have been enjoying Refund Cents long before there was a website for it. I just love this site. I wait for the email newsletter that you can request from here every day. There is always something that I want to take advantage of. I love to see what other refunders have to say about deals for groceries. But, now with the holidays upon us I am paying even more attention to the posts. And, if you ever are planning a shopping trip you have to check out the master coupon list to see if there is a coupon available to use on your purchase. I can't tell you how many times I have found a coupon either in my Sunday circulars or even better online. There are many places that you can find coupons online and Refund Cents will always find the best place to go print that coupon. You print that out and take it to the store and it is like money back in your pocketbook. They also have deals at CVS and Walgreens where you can often get items for free. I love this site!
Couponing! Rebates! And Sales! Oh My!
Okay cheesy title, but the site is pretty cool. This site is like TheGroceryGame.com but it's free, the only catch is that you have to do the leg work yourself. Me personally? I'm okay with that. I just can't see paying money to save money. Even if the savings are higher than the cost, I'm just not invested in the coupon lifestyle enough to, well, invest in it. RefundCents.com is more up my alley.
It's a little confusing at first, it seems like you have to subscribe in order to see any deals, but you don't. If you just click on where it says to subscribe you're routed to a page with all the daily deals listed. There you can scroll down and see all the offers for different stores. The deals are organized by store and date. The site shows you what bargains you can expect between the sales, available coupons and register rewards, then gives you the final price for each item. It's pretty comprehensive.
In addition to deals, this site also has links for learning coupon lingo, other deal sites, pics of people who have saved a ton and much more. It's definitely worth checking out!
Pretty Good Coupon Site, but Not Completely in the "Know"
RefundCents.com is what it sounds like - another couponing site. I am all about the 'know' and the need to 'know' sooner than later. With news in the coupon world, you really do have to stay up to the minute. In seconds, coupons can become no longer available print and deals can sell out. This site is not the one you want to be part of unless you like hearing how everyone else saved money and got a great deal or for the most part you might not even hear about 'that' great deal. There are very few things listed compared to the normal sites I visit daily. As recent as today, there were great coupons released and deals that were not even mentioned, let alone in the past couple of days. It seems more like a 'look at me' type of site (the owner has dubbed herself the "America's Coupon Queen") rather than an informative, up to the minute site for saving money. The site itself is ok - its pleasant to look at, but it comes off as very blah. You can print coupons that you find at redplum.com or coupons.com from her site. There are also discussion blogs that members can join in and chat. There is a subscription for the site, but it is unclear as to what you get for your money. Seriously though, there are tons of free coupon sites that are more up-to-date than this one. I just keep moving on to the next site.
Pay to Save!
Sometimes, when you are flipping through the channels you stumble across this show known as Extreme Couponing where you see individuals obtaining huge stock piles of products that would be big enough to allow them to own their very own mini market.
How do you do that? Well, you can collect coupons from various newspaper clippings and then do all the research yourself, or you can use refundcents and sign up for their subscription and let them to the work for you.
Option 2 is the best option! Once you subscribe you get frequent updates on the coupons that are available. All you need to do is just print and go to the store and save. The savings you get easily pays for the cost of the membership. They also have storage options that allow you to store your coupons. These are custom creations that make the organization much more easily for you. The people here are doing it for years and it's definitely worth it!
If you Coupon, this is a must have site
The subscription price of this site is EXTREMELY affordable, and one weekend saving's from shopping will more than pay for the cost of this site. I have been a member for about four years now. It not only teaches you about couponing, but it delivers daily tips on ways to save. Hidden sales, maybe a manager's special or clearance deals. Last Christmas we were able to save a fortune on touch screen mp3 players. We actually got them FREE from CVS thanks to a little known sale. They were advertised for $89.99 with a $10 gift card as a reward for purchase and you could buy two. Well they actually rung up just 9,99 and you still received the $10 gift card. In addition to couponing and sales, they point out rebates, refunds, money back guarantees and even class action law suits. We have received nearly one thousand dollars back this year from various rebates, refunds and guarantees. There is no reason to pay full price and after a year of couponing with this site, you will wonder why you ever did.
Never pay for shampoo again--ever!
RefundCents is a great resource for shoppers who are trying to be more shopping savvy (and in today's tough economy, who isn't?). There are updates on coupons, deals at your favorite stores, rebates and more that are updated almost hourly! Each week, there are Double Play lists posted, both for local stores and some national chains, and the site features Censible Chat--a place to ask questions about saving money, brag about your own hot deals, or get help from friendly Coupon Queens and Deal Divas. In addition to the great online information, you can subscribe to the print version of RefundCents and get the magazine delivered directly to your home each month. It features inspiring success stories from fellow couponers and articles that teach you how to get the most out of your money by combining sales with coupons and rebates. In addition, each month you'll get information about what refunds are out there--and there are a lot! Once you visit RefundCents, you'll be amazed that you ever paid full price for anything--and I can promise you that you'll never pay for shampoo, toothpaste, soap, or many other items again. Ever!
RefundCents.Com is beating the competition.
refundcents.com is by far the best website out there for learning how to save money, use coupons to the best of your ability, and it has everything on the front page.
I am used to scanning around the entire internet to try and find the best deals out there. In order to survive in this economy I think we all should became coupon/rebate savvy, and this website will help you do just that. It's super easy to navigate, and there are so many memebrs to help if you get stuck. Even Michelle will help, and she's the founder of the website.
Eveyday when you first log in there's Michelle's Updates. She puts anything that is a good deal on there. This helps from having to scan all the post in centsible chat. Which is where we post anything that is a great deal, or a helpful link.
There is also a section, Tips and Talk, where there are step by step instructions teaching you how to get better deals.
