How savings experts do holiday shopping

I'm sure you've got a few tricks up your sleeve for scoring the best holiday online deals. But if you want the most for your money, you've got to use every trick in the book.

There may be many more ways to save online than you think. Check out this list of tips that will turn you into a money-saving pro.

Access retail sites through cash-back apps and websites

I've written about several of these apps before, they're great to use all year round if you're an avid shopper. When you shop through iBotta, you can get rebates on products from popular retailers; this money is given to you through a PayPal account. You get $10 just for signing up. If you use Swagbucks or ShopKick, you'll get points for your purchases that you can redeem for gift cards. With eBates you can get discounts on purchases and cashback, which is sent to you via a quarterly check in the mail. They're also offering $10 just for joining.

Install browser add-ons

Instead of searching for your own promo codes and hoping they work, use a browser extension that adds them in automatically. Coupons at Checkout is a free browser add-on. Use extensions that have good online reviews, you don't want to accidentally install malware on your device.
