Before purchasing anything from an online retailer, search the Internet for coupon codes for that retailer. You can save a lot of money just by taking a few minutes to look for a discount. It is well worth it.

Two that I use are:
I don't normally promote websites, but has anyone heard of mrrebates.com or ebates.com? This is THE way to shop. Register for these and shop through one of these portals (whichever one gives you the best rebate) and you will receive money back, later, after you've made your purchases WITH those coupon codes that you're already saving so much money with. They even supply those coupon codes that you see on currentcodes.com and others. Most all of my shopping is done this way and I receive bonus checks later of which I can ask them to just send to my paypal account and transfer to my checking. I'm going to be shopping at these stores anyway, so why not get a rebate to boot? It all adds up quickly, especially at Christmas time when I do most of my shopping online. It is absolutely fabulous and trustworthy and it's not a gimmick. It is like going to the mall (mrrebates or ebates) and then when you go into the mall, you enter one of the mall's stores. If you enter in "outside" of the mall doors, you won't get a rebate. This is how I explain it to my friends.
Try it, you'll get hooked and then you can refer all of your friends and will get a percentage of their rebates too! It doesn't take away from them at all.

I use this site - I have saved a lot of money with the codes from her, and they are well-organized by categories - she also offers a daily newsletter with highlights:
www.wow-coupons.com is a great site for coupons. There are all different coupons up there. if you sign up for her mailing list, she puts extra coupons in it for subscribers. (03/30/2005)
