I think I’m like most people, I LOVE a good deal. What I don’t love is the endless emails I get from retailers announcing their deals every day or just sending me emails announcing whatever is that they think I should know. It’s a full time job just to manage all these emails plus 99% of the time you don’t shop the sale. I have unsubscribed from all of them but 3. The timing was pretty funny when RetailMeNot.ca approached me to participate in a fun competition.

RetailMeNot.ca is a digital offers site that compiles the best in-store and online deals for some of your favourite retailers. Relatively new to Canada, RetailMeNot.ca aims to help every Canadian develop savvy spending habits on everything from clothes to more practical purchases like savings on tax returns!

For my participation in the RetailMeNot.ca challenge (#RMNchallenge), they provided me with a $250 Visa gift card. With this gift card, I was invited to a fun and friendly challenge with fellow bloggers to see how much we can save on items we would normally purchase by using RetailMeNot.ca.

I already knew a few things I needed/wanted and couldn’t wait for the competition. The website is very easy to move around in and I love that when I find a deal I like I can easily copy the code and use in the participating retailers website. Another great feature is that there is box that tells you if the coupon is being successfully used by other RetailMeNot.ca users and when the coupon was used last. Moreover, there are a variety of retailers and deals, it’s not limited to just clothing, a few examples include health, services, travel and photography (but I stuck to clothing). There are lots of American on-line retailers so just be aware of shipping costs and currency rates if you purchase from them.

What did I buy you ask? Well my biggest score was a pair of JCrew Kitten heels that were regularly $358 (with conversion & tax it would be $512.86) that were on sale but at $201, JCrew had a coupon for 30% off coupon when you spend over $200 so when it was all said and done I got the shoes for $159.33 with tax ($200.22 with conversion)!! That is $312.64 savings on just the shoes!! The reason I splurged on the shoes was because I spent the day filming in 4 inch heels and I can tell you my feet still hate me, sensible heels it had to be. With the last $50 I bought this Gap dress, which I got on sale for $58.45 ($66.65 with tax. It was regularly $89.95, but with the RetailMeNo.ca coupon it was 35% off). So in total I saved approximately $340! Not bad.
