Let’s help you become a Baller on a Budget, shall we?
It’s tax season, and for some people this means that they won’t be getting a refund but are actually paying Uncle Sam instead. It can be rough, and it could cause your bank account to look half-empty rather than half-full. Not to worry geeks, because we’ve got your back. Despite having low funds there’s still that part of you that wants to be equipped with cool stuff and we’re here to help with three ways that you can help save.
You know it, you love it, and you probably buy a significant amount of your cool stuff from it. Well, Amazon is out to help you get what you want even more with [AmazonLocal]. If you’ve heard of Groupon, then you’ll kind of know the deal here. If you’re in a region where AmazonLocal is available, you’ll get access to special coupons and deals in your area. Not only that, but Amazon basically gives away gift certificates. You can get a $10 gift certificate for $5. In other words, you’ll get $5 free on Amazon, and that money never expires so just wait a few months, let the money and deals build up, and you’ll be saving money in no time.
Let’s say you’re one who likes to look fresh, and be up to date on the city scene, then you’ll want to sign up for [UrbanDaddy]. UrbanDaddy is “a lifestyle media company” (see: every post by Skizzle Fresh) that sends you daily emails about deals on various things from some slick Oxford shirts (like those that James Bond wears) to deals on sweet five stars hotels as low as $1 a night. No kidding. Some of their deals are even exclusive to members and your closest city of choosing, such as access to events that are sold out. Sure, the prices are a bit high at times, but they’re still a lot cheaper than they would be normally. Definitely worth the sign up.
A lot of video game and entertainment websites offer reviews and whatnot which are very helpful for making decisions that could save you money. For you iOS gamers out there, sometimes you don’t know whether or not a game is worth the money, even if it’s just a buck, and that’s where the [IGN] App Store Update comes in handy. They go through free games and sales and just all around good apps to download on a regular basis. Plus, you can sign up for email notifications, which I highly recommend. This could definitely help keep your portable gaming stats up, while still keeping your wallet full.
And there you have it. Three relatively simple things, FREE simple things, that could save you some cash down the line. Get Equipped.
