Cutting (and Pasting) Coupons
Today’s Oprah is about this frugal family. I am in the midst of cleaning out my closet, so I keep going back and forth from the bedroom to the den. I have a deadline of finishing my project before movie night.
But I have to share my recent coupon experience. For our recent trip to NYC, I paused when I saw the promotional code at the check out for both Amtrak and Orbitz. I have never used a promotional code unless I received it in an email or on a physical coupon. But there are countless times when I left this opening blank.
Thanks to the power of Google, I found a promo code for both! If you just type in “Amtrak Promotional Code” or “Orbitz Promotional Code,” you will find countless web sites with current sales. I saved over $90 on our two night hotel stay and over $50 for one of our train tickets to NYC.
We stayed right outside of Penn Station, so we simply took the Metro to Union Station, got off the train in Manhattan and crossed the street. It was so easy I wondered why I waited until I was five months pregnant to think of this. Plus I’ll never leave one of those promo codes blank again.
