RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - We all spend money using our credit and debit cards, but that same card can save you money when you sign up at offermatic.com. When you create an account with offermatic, the site analyzes your spending habits and delivers personalized savings options directly to you.
To sign up, you have to enter banking information, which can be a little scary. This site uses bank level security, like mint.com, that's guaranteed 100% private and anonymous, and that's the only information they require.
Offermatic.com will sift through your spending and email you specific offers based on where you've been shopping.
Within minutes of signing up, I had three offers. I could get a free restaurant.com certificate - I'm going to pass on that because I can get them for $2 at the end of the month. But the next two, I'm definitely taking advantage of.
The first will save me $5 if I spend $10 at Shell Gas. I was on E anyway-so I waited until Thursday when Shell discounts gas another 5 cents a gallon, and filled my tank. That $5 should appear directly back into my bank account within the month, saving me 10% on this trip.
The next deal is similar-spend $10 at Target, get $5 back. Everybody needs something from Target, so I stack my coupons to stretch my dollars and will hit the target. You usually have 3 or 4 days to get to the store before the offer disappears.
As a bonus, you will earn offermatic points for added savings. The more points you earn, the bigger the discount offers get.
Offermatic dot com is free to join; all you need is a valid debit or credit card. If you want to see what savings will be tailored to your spending, click here.
