ABCs of Saving - Facebook It

Today’s tip is to use Facebook (and other social media sites) for savings.

The savings world has changed quite a bit with all the social media outlets on the scene.  It seems that every couple of months retailers and producers are finding new ways sell their products through this medium.  So, my suggestion is to use the same principle from the ABCs of Saving: Email Yourself Deals and create a user name just for deals for your family.  It could be a family name, instead of your first name.  Then open new Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. accounts using this user name.  You could use the deals email account you set up as the clearing house for all the emails that come from these sites as a result of signing up.

I must admit that I am not very social media savvy, but I have “liked” quite a few of my favorite brands on Facebook and “follow” them on Twitter and I have found that they are alerting their customers to deals and contests through this medium much more.  I love the ease of signing up for contests through Facebook, as well (who knows, I could win someday!).   I have also noticed that stores like CVS offer their Twitter followers special deals, coupons, and previews of their upcoming weekly ads.

How do you use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to save money and/or time?

    FB is becoming a fine place for buying and selling. As I type we are trying to sell a vehicle on a page dedicated to our little area of 3 villages. It’s good for finding good quality 2nd hand children’s toys as well!
    Oh, and you can win through giveaways- I’ve won a set of postcards (we send postcards regularly so they are very useful to us-we don’t enter anything that we won’t use as that’s just wasteful). and we’ve just been informed today we’ve won $25 credit at an educational site we also use! I can’t believe how fortunate we’ve been, but it makes the time spent on FB feel not so guilty!
