  1. You get an email from your favorite store offering you 50% off for one day only, plus free shipping — woo-hoo! You immediately:
      A. Click straight through the email and start shopping! You gotta get the best items before they’re all snapped up.

  2. You find the perfect dress online for your best friend’s wedding in a few months, but it’s just a little too expensive for you, so you:
      A. Check back in a week to see if there’s a sale at the store
      New sales happen every few days, so one is bound to pop up eventually, right?
      B. Dig around online for a coupon — there has to be one out there somewhere to help bring the dress into your price range.
      C. Set up a price alert, and start looking for great coupons in the meantime. That way, you’ll know when the price drops and be ready to save even more — your favorite way to save time and money!
  3. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner! You prepare by:
      A. Making your holiday shopping list beforehand so you’re ready to hit the ground running once all those sales begin!
      B. Making a list of all the stores you plan to shop at, with their sales listed right next to them. Don’t want to miss anything!

  4. You found a great TV for 60% off that would be perfect for your living room! Before you hit “Submit Order,” you:

  5. Stores’ rewards programs are:
      A. A good idea, but you always forget to use yours (or even sign up sometimes)!
      B. Fun, but you’re only a member at the stores you shop at the most.
