Tips on saving money in Omaha, from Peony Village Apartments

Whether you are on a tight budget, or you are just looking for a way to have fun in Omaha without breaking the bank, we here at Peony Village Apartments have compiled some ideas for you!

One of the newest trends in marketing and advertising is posting localized daily deals to websites such as Groupon.com or LivingSocial.com.    Here, companies large or small can post coupons that are available for purchase for a limited amount of time or to a limited number of people for great discounts.  You can get anything from local services, such as car washes, massages, or classes to products, restaurants, or even vacations for anywhere between 25%-75% off!  Once you purchase the coupon for the discounted price, it acts as a gift certificate that you can take to the merchant to redeem.

Companies are also posting many deals to their Facebook pages.  If you have a Facebook account and you would like to receive updates and discounts to your favorite places, see if they have a page to become a fan of.  Once you “Like” their page, you can see what deals they may have posted or receive them once they post them to their wall.

Last but not least, you can always get on the email or mailing list of a company that shares specials and coupons through this method.  Visit their company webpage or ask them in person if they have an email or mailing list you can become a part of.  If you don’t like a lot of junk mail coming to your inbox, you can always use an alternate email address used solely for this purpose.
