Local Arizona Groups for Saving Money & Sharing Deals ~ Join Your Area on Facebook

We have started some local Facebook groups, hoping to help save you even more!

East Valley

West Valley

North Valley

If you live, work, or play in any of these areas, request to join!

Facebook “groups” are different from regular Facebook “pages” because anyone can post and the group will see it (much more than if you post on a “page”).  The posts also show up in your feed more than a “page” does.

This will not be a repetition of what is shared on our larger Facebook Page.  (Join that, if you haven’t!  We share extras there, that don’t appear in the daily email or website.)  These new groups will focus will be on local deals.

One of the main reasons I started this website was because I was finding a bunch of super bargains.  I wanted to help people, by telling them about them.  If you feel the same way … like it’s hard to walk away from a great bargain discovery without sharing, please help contribute!  Snap a pick of a clearance deal or sale that’s too amazing to pass up.  Share posts from local businesses when they have a free/cheap day or special event.  Snap a pic of a sign in a restaurant that shows a super special.  Whatever deal you love, someone else also might!

If your area isn’t listed and you’d like to help by being an admin for the group, let me know.  We can start groups in different areas, if there are people interested.  I just can’t contribute in a huge way, since I’m not shopping in every area in the state.  I’d feel better if there was someone who felt some ownership over the group and wanted to see it succeed.

Mostly, the admins just make sure everyone stays nice and spam stays out of the group.  It’s great if admins can post what they find and get things going, but the fate of the group is really up to all the members.  If everyone contributes, it becomes a great resource for everyone.  Email me if you’re interested in helping in another area:  juli@bargainbleiever.com  (Note:  This is not a paid position.)

Hope this will be a great local resource for everyone!

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.
