Hip2Save This Holiday: Be Sure to Check Your Receipts for Coupons, Contest Entries, & More

Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post Submitted By Reader Micaela
Always check the bottom of your receipts before you toss them! Many companies offer an incentive for you to take their survey and let them know how they are doing or what they could do better. And from working in retail – they really do look at these surveys so give your honest opinion. After one shopping trip I had several receipts with offers on them and just to name a few…

*Sephora – FREE entry into a $250 gift card drawing
*Krispy Kreme ­ – buy one dozen get another dozen free
*Walmart ­ – entry for one of five $1,000 gift cards
*Bath and Body Works – $10 off $30 purchase
*Victoria’s Secret – $10 off $50 purchase
*Gap ­ – 20% off one regularly priced item
*Sonic – $1 off your next $3 purchase

All this just for taking a survey! The surveys don’t take very long and offer a huge reward in the end! Make sure you have your receipt handy in case any information is needed from it and keep it in case you have to write a validation code on it. Some stores may actually send you an email with a coupon.

If you don’t think you will spend the amount needed at a particular store, take the survey anyway and give it to a friend. One of my favorite things to do is give it to someone shopping at the store. It really does make their day! Do note that many of these surveys have to be taken within the next few days after your purchase, so don’t forget to do them! Make sure you take them along with you on your next shopping trip too!

(The survey my sidekick, Mary, received on her receipt after purchasing a Chick-Fil-A Cow Calendar!)
