How to see Bargain Believer posts on Facebook . . .

I often get comments or emails from people that are frustrated with Facebook.  They’ve “liked” the Bargain Believer page, but they don’t see the posts in their feed, or rarely.  I agree, totally frustrating!

To fix this & see Bargain Believer updates consistently when you are on Facebook . . .

  1.  Make sure you’re “following” the Bargain Believer page and haven’t just “liked” it.
  2.   From here, you want to hover over the “Following” button and choose “See first.”  (See above)

If you want to seal the deal, make sure you’re commenting, liking, and sharing posts often.  When you do that, Facebook knows it’s a favorite and you won’t miss much, if anything.

As a back up, make sure you’ve signed up for daily emails here.  You can quickly look over the list each day and make sure you caught what you wanted to.  For me, emails are a good reminder to follow up on something I was going to scroll back to look at or do in “just a minute” and forgot.  Tell me I’m not the only one, please!  :)

Hope this gets you set to see what you want on Facebook!

Coupon Organizing Ideas ~ Create System CHEAP!

To update my ancient coupon envelopes,
I recently bought this set on Amazon.
It motivated me to update a page I created long ago,
explaining how I set up my system.
Go here here to get full details.

Hopefully, it will help motivate some to start using coupons and help others get more organized.  Without good organization, you will give up couponing … almost guaranteed.

This small investment in money and time will turn into a huge return in savings!  Go here for pictures and full descriptions.

Emails, Facebook, Twitter! ~ Follow Us!

Go here to get our daily emails.  Yes, they come everyday, usually around 2pm.  They’re not for the weak or those annoyed by getting an email every single day.  :)  The emails give links to all the posts we did, in the previous 24 hours.

Make sure you click on the confirmation email!!  So many miss this step.  I’m guessing it’s because it goes to spam sometimes, so be sure to check there if you don’t see it.

Facebook is where we’re most active.  We post extras over there all the time, especially more localized deals or offers that will probably disappear quickly.  As an added bonus, you can learn tidbits from others who contribute or ask questions over there.

If you hover over “Following” and choose “See First,” Facebook will show Bargain Believer posts first, so you don’t miss anything or see it too late … or never.  If you don’t, there’s a good chance you’ll miss a lot.  The more you like, comment, and share posts; the more Facebook believes you actually want to see the posts.  Stay active, please!  It also keeps us motivated, knowing there are people who are actually out there.  :)

Sometimes, we wait to post on Facebook, so there’s a greater chance it will actually be shown in your feed.  (Facebook doesn’t seem to like us posting things right in a row.)  If you’re waiting on something, you can always hop over to www.BargainBeliever.com and see if it’s already there.  Sometimes, we’re backed up, especially on Mondays & Tuesdays, when we do a lot of ad match ups.


Honestly, Twitter just gets the automatic feeds from the website.  If you’re a Twitter follower, everything will be there.  It will just show the post title and have a link.  There won’t be extra commentary or interaction there.

If you don’t know what this is, it’s probably not for you.  :)  You can get feeds in different ways, but here’s a link, if you want to set it up this way.

Background first … my husband’s last day of work, as a software engineer, is this Wednesday.  It was his choice to leave and he isn’t looking for another job.  He wants to pursue some entrepreneurial & programming dreams he’s had for awhile.  For those curious, we’ve taken out a home equity loan to sustain us, after our savings is used up.  The current thought is to give it two years and see what happens.

I’m planning on starting another website called FuninAZ.  (I’m not sure when it will all come together, but I have set up a Facebook here & Instagram here & Twitter here . . .  if you want to be ready to see content as it’s created.)

I’m hoping to help people like you, as well as local businesses, while figuring out how to make a profit.  We’ll see how it all works, since I’m not a marketing master or business expert.  I “accidentally” started Bargain Believer and have never really focused on making it profitable enough to significantly contribute to my family’s income.  I have just been happy if I make enough to pay those who help me.  This will all be new to me!

My husband is going to help me get that set up and going, between projects he needs to work on.  But, before all this, my husband said he’d take a week to improve Bargain Believer!

I have a huge list of things!  Some of our dreams are pretty big, for what the functionality could be.  But, I want to hear from you … what would you like to see here?  Dream big and/or think of little things that annoy you.  You can also tell us what you love, so we don’t make that disappear!

I can’t promise anything, but a week of solid programming time can accomplish a lot.  Right now, I’m mostly focusing on usability and function, but I can add content type issues to the list, too.

You can leave the comment below, or over on Facebook here.

I’m looking forward to our new adventure and (hopefully!) making things better for you along the way!  ~ Juli

Arizona Republic Discount Code (DBLOG) ~ $1 per week for Sun. & Wed. Delivery

I’m so excited about the offer The Arizona Republic has, exclusively for Bargain Believer followers!  We’re going back to the good old days … $1 per week!

Get the Sunday & Wednesday papers delivered for $4.33* per month, which is about $1 per week.  You can sign up here or call 602-444-1000 and mention code DBLOG.

Even better news … this is not an offer than ends and then you end up getting charged full price. (The fine print says it can, but they assured me it won’t, unless they notify you first.  Most subscriptions automatically change your autopay to a higher amount.  They said this won’t.)

The same pricing will continue, until you cancel your paper!  This is unheard of, in recent times.  Recent offers have lasted 3, 6, or 12 months and then you ended up paying full price and/or having to remember to call and cancel.

That means full sets of coupons on Sunday and no running to the store to get a paper!  Sometimes stores get smaller packets of coupons or are missing an insert.  You may even get a little bonus every once in awhile, with a coupon insert thrown in a Wednesday paper.  It doesn’t happen often, but there’s been a nice surprise in there every once in awhile.

* Added notes:  You have to be a new subscriber to get this offer, 30 days or more since you got the paper delivered.  Tax brings the total to $4.64 per month.  The fine print says you’ll be charged for the Thanksgiving paper (can call to cancel, if not wanted) and $1 (four times) for four premium editions.  Print edition is not available in all areas, so if you live in a more remote area, you may want to call, to make sure you’re not going to end up with only the digital version.

Why? Help! ~ Note from Juli

Why?

There are times I wonder what I’m doing, running this website.  Not only do I feel inadequate sometimes, but my life is full … of the good stuff, the bad stuff, and the busy stuff.  Yes, I make some money by doing this, but I could make more if I used my time and energy to invest in something else.  But, it’s not about money.  My husband makes enough money to keep us happy.  So, I always come back to:  Why do I want to add stress to my life?

There are three reasons I can’t escape, no matter how hard I try to convince myself that I’d prefer extra time in my life, to pursue other things . . .

  1.  All of you ~ especially those who email your story, comment, share posts, tag a friend on Facebook, etc.  By doing that, you’re telling me you value what we’re doing.  You become “real” and not just a click on my stat page.  I can quit on clicks, but it’s hard to quit on people who find value in what we’re doing.  Some of you have even shared how much you saved and what it has led to . . . . amazing stories that have made me shed a couple tears, the good kind.  It’s hard to walk away from impacted lives.
  2. Gina ~ super duper assistant who does most everything and makes me wonder what I do sometimes, but something sucks up my time!?!?  I stumbled on this email Gina sent me awhile back, prompting me to do this post.  Seriously, how can I not press on, when I doubt myself?!?“… Our vacations simply would not happen if it weren’t for you and the job you’ve given me.  There wouldn’t be extra money for that, and I love making those memories with my kids and taking them new places and exposing them to new experiences. I love that I can be here every day with my kids when they get home from school.  I love that I can take care of them when they are sick and still work.  I’m grateful that when company comes or my best friend, I can work around my work and enjoy life and them. So, thank you, thank you, thank you.  I truly thank you. You are a blessing to me and my family.
  3.  Me! ~ I really like interacting with you and I gain something from that.  It’s not a one-way thing.  I love bargains and keeping them to myself isn’t as fun.  I love having an outlet, when time and ambition line up at the same time.  :)

More honesty … my income has been decreasing, mostly due to reduced Google ad revenue and coupon printing revenue.  I wonder how long I’ll be able to sustain everything.  It would sadden me, but if I ever began to lose money, it would be clear that it would be time to stop.  That’s where you come in!

I’ve shared this before, but for those who are new, here’s what you can do to help…

  • Use the links we provide vs going directly to a coupon site or buying something we share online.  The majority don’t pay, but some do.  They aren’t huge amounts (many as low as $0.02), but they add up when everyone is using them.
    You can bookmark this for printing from Coupons.com:
    http://www.bargainbeliever.com/blog/coupons-com-printables/
  •  I love Amazon and I’m sure you do, too!  When making an Amazon purchase, use the search box on the top left of the website.  If you start there (no matter what you search for), whatever you end up buying will track and I receive a payment.  If you prefer bookmarking it, going through this link will also get me credit.

  • Visit the website often.  Google ads count visitors and the more the merrier.  When you click on the ads, I receive more, but I TRULY only want you to click if interested.  I don’t think it’s fair for advertisers to pay unless you’re really interested.  But, Google matches ads pretty well, so if something comes up that you already searched for and plan to buy or you want more information, please click from there.
  • Tell people about the website … groups or individuals, publicly or privately.  I love seeing people tag their friends on Facebook.  I know you like what you see and value it enough to share it!

As Gina said, “So, thank you, thank you, thank you.  I truly thank you.  You are a blessing to me and my family.”  You really are!  Sure, we work hard, but we get the benefit of knowing that what we invest in isn’t meaningless.   My heart is full, though my days are sometimes sparse in time.  THANK YOU!  ~ Juli

Don’t See Facebook Updates? ~ Fix It Now!


Many of you say that a lot of posts don’t show up in your Facebook feed.

A couple ways to fix that . . .

  1.  After “liking” the Bargain Believer Facebook page.  Hover over “Following” at the top of the page and make sure “See First” is checked.
  2. Comment and “like” posts often.  This is almost a guarantee (added to above directions) that you’ll see everything.

If you’re not a Facebook fan, there’s a daily email, Twitter, or an RSS feed you can follow.

If all else fails, check the website each day.  Not many days go by without us updating something.
