This post is sponsored by RetailMeNot. We’ve partnered to giveaway a $500 Visa gift card to one lucky reader–details to enter at the bottom of the post.
We’ve made it a weekly feature to share Weekend Sales on Saturday mornings on the blog, along with many throughout the week on Instagram stories and I always get asked, “How do you find out about these sales?!” Truthfully, I have many systems in place, brands reach out to me directly, an intern to help put it together and a few hundred thousand people putting the pressure on (talk about motivation!)–but RetailMeNot has been like a second assistant!
If you’re not familiar with RetailMeNot, it’s a site, app, blog and they have a new browser extension, called RetailMeNot Genie that basically spoon-feeds you all the best deals at the places you already shop online (think Target, Madewell, Amazon, J.Crew, Crate & Barrel)–okay, those are all the places I already shop online, but they have hundreds and hundreds! As soon as I made an account for RetailMeNot, I signed up to receive their best deals email straight to my inbox. I used to subscribe to EVERY brand’s newsletter so I would be notified of sales and be able to pass them on, but this has made it so much easier, not to mention my inbox is a lot happier, by compiling the best deals into one email.
Obviously, this is all my job, and it’s been a fun weekend addition to our normal DIY posts around here, but if you’re too busy to search for deals, and it’s not Saturday morning on the blog ;), the new RetailMeNot Genie browser extension actually will do all the work for you. It finds, combines and applies savings at checkout.
Here are a few examples of how the Genie browser extension works. See that little purple R in the right corner next to the search bar? That’s the deal alert, as I like to call it. When it’s purple, that site has deals, when it’s gray, it doesn’t. When we were looking for faucets and hardware for the cabin kitchen, I love to check Wayfair and Build.com first (both are in the RetailMeNot directory) and both had purple Rs when I went to the site, letting me know there were deals to snag. In the end, the Genie popped up and said we could save $8.28 at checkout on Build.com with a click of a button!
I get a lot off clothes for myself and the girls at H&M, did you know they do cash back all the time and you don’t have to go to any other site to unlock it?! Just click the purple Genie extension, Activate Cashback and it will show up in your RetailMeNot wallet…more money for jeans.
And speaking of denim, Madewell (MADEWELL!!!) has cash back through RetailMeNot as well right now. I love their jeans because they fit so well and they carry “taller” sizes.
And if saving money at all your favorite places wasn’t fun enough, we’re giving away a $500 Visa Giftcard! Visit retailmenot.com/genie/ to install the free browser extension (works for Chrome & Firefox). Then visit your favorite online store and comment below with the discount you’re most excited to use! We’ll announce a winner as an update to this post on Monday!
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
