Note from Juli . . .


Please tell everyone in AZ you know (or even strangers!) to check us out.  If they don’t already love you, they may start!  :)  Most of you know this, but just in case you don’t … I pay people to help me since I just don’t have time to spend on what is needed  to keep this site going.  I use affiliate links and advertising, to generate an income.  We get to continue because of those who use our links and help us grow by telling others about Bargain Believer​.

I want to be honest/clear … our #1 priority is to save you money, not make money.  But, for one to happen, the other needs to happen or we can’t continue.  I still refuse to post things that I hope a few of you might jump on, just to make a buck .. at the expense of wasting everyone else’s time & diluting the things I find valuable.  We really pick and choose what we feel is the best, especially for AZ residents, without becoming a site that just lists Amazon & other affiliate deals all the time.  That means the majority of our posts make us a whopping $0.   I get as excited to post those as I do the money making ones, if I know you will benefit.

With that said, sometimes I feel guilty for posting the things I make money on.  In some ways, it would be easier if I didn’t make/need money.  My guilt would be less.

Later this afternoon, I will put up a post about Pogo Pass.  I’m sorry for those of you who are sick of seeing it.  However, please realize that it’s extremely popular and I get thanked for sharing it all the time.  It’s an amazing value and I completely believe in it.  Also, keep in mind that we have new people come to the site each day and most people don’t see every post we do (shocking to a few of you loyal followers, I know)  :)  Honestly … we probably couldn’t afford to keep doing what we’re doing without Pogo’s generous commission.  I’d love for you to share or tag people on that post (or any!) if you think anyone would benefit.  Side note:  Pogo can also be used for fundraisers.  If you know a school or non-profit that needs to make some money, please send me an email (juli@bargainbeliever.com).  Or, it can even be a business that wants to put flyers on their counter.  They are a super company to work with.

Okay, this didn’t start out so long in my mind, but I’m a world-class rambler.  I’m glad you’re here and really don’t know how to fully express that to you, but just believe me … I love sharing deals and it’s much easier to share them, than keep them to myself.  Well … in some ways.  :)  THANK YOU!  ~ Juli

Get Facebook Page Updates to Show Up in Feed (New Way!)


I just found a new (at least to me!) setting for pages you follow on Facebook.  One of the most common questions we get is how to see all Bargain Believer posts in your Facebook feed.  It’s frustrating when you want to see something and Facebook just doesn’t show it to you.

We know that commenting, sharing, and “liking” posts helps.  But, it looks like we may have a new option.  Hope this really works!!

Some deals go quickly, so it’s a great way to follow us, if you’re on Facebook a lot.  Plus, we post some added information or have a Facebook-only giveaway from time to time.

Assuming you want to see everything we post  . . .

Supposedly, Bargain Believer posts will show up at the top of your feed.  Give it a try and let us know what happens.

Verify Email Subscriptions! ~ Great Way to Follow (Also Facebook, Twitter, or RSS Feed)


If you don’t get the Bargain Believer emails, you may want them.  You will receive one email between 3pm & 5pm, usually around 3pm.  (No, I’m not sitting at my computer at that exact time every single day.  They’re automatic and I never know the precise time they’ll go out.) :)

They will show you everything that was listed since the previous email went out.  It’s an easy way to glance over what was posted that day and make sure you didn’t miss anything.   Fair warning:  You’ll be bugged everyday around 3pm, but you can unsubscribe at anytime.   :)

If you’ve ever signed up to get the daily emails and you’re not getting them, you probably didn’t verify your email.  There is a significant number of people on the email list that haven’t.  Sign up again at this link and make sure to go to your email and click on the link.  It should come right away.

Of course, you can also follow other ways . . . Facebook gets a little extra love sometimes, with quickly disappearing deals, reminders, and just more interaction.  If you use Facebook, it’s another great way to follow.

Make sure “follow” is checked after you have “liked” Bargain Believer (beside the “liked” button).  Even better, hover over the “liked” button and check “get notifications.”  When you’re on Facebook, a little box will pop up when we post something and it will also be listed under your “notifications” tab on top.  As always, the best way to not miss anything is to comment or “like” posts on the Bargain Believer Facebook page …. often!

Stay Active on Facebook or You’re Missing Out!


Are a Facebook user, who likes to see all the updates from pages you have “liked,” like the Bargain Believer page?  (I think that sentence had too may “likes” in it!)

Ughhh . . . it’s so frustrating when I don’t see things I want to.  I feel like when I “like” a page, I’m telling Facebook I want to see their updates.  If I don’t want to see them, I’ll “unlike” them.  Facebook sees it differently.  :(

You need to get/stay active to see what you want on the Bargain Believer Facebook page!  We posts extra deals on Facebook from time to time.  You’ll want to see them, even if you get the email or stalk the website.

When you “like,” share, or comment … you are telling Facebook that you value the page and want to see posts.  You are also making it a more popular post, which will increase the likelihood that those who aren’t as active, will see the post.  Pretty please … like or comment on posts when you think they’re beneficial!

If you are active for awhile and you’re still not seeing everything, don’t forget … you can get daily emails.  Note:  You will not get them until you click on the confirmation email that you receive.  You will get an email almost every single day.  I realize that’s not for everyone.  If it annoys you enough, you can unsubscribe at any time.  We promise not to spam you, once you unsubscribe.  Well, we’ll never “spam” you, but you’ll get that one email each day.  :)

If all else fails … we have a website!  Check it often.  :)

Thanks for being here and giving us an outlet to share the deals we find.  We like finding bargains and it’s much more fun to share them!

Facebook Problems? ~ Get Bargain Believer to Show Up in Your Feed!


I’ve received quite a few emails recently, asking how to get Facebook updates from Bargain Believer to show up in your news feed.

The very best way seems to “like,” comment, and share posts regularly.  The people that do that say they see all the updates.  As a bonus, Facebook shows the posts with the most love, more often.  So, we love all of you that interact with our page!  It helps those who want to get the updates, but choose to remain quiet.

If you are opposed to that, hover over “liked” and make sure “following” is checked.  You have hope, but it doesn’t seem like much.  Most likely, you’ve already done that and nothing has changed.  :(

Lastly, you can check to “get notifications,”  which is an option under the “like” button.  Some love get notifications, some don’t.  Try it for awhile and see what you think.  You can always uncheck it later.

If Facebook won’t show you the love, there are other ways to follow.

Email One email per day, usually around 3pm — good way to quickly look & see what you missed



You could give one of those a shot or just stalk the website page each day.

Anyone have any other insight about getting your “liked” pages to show up?

Are We Going to Charge for Bargain Believer? No! ~ How Can You Support Us?


I’ve been asked if I will charge a fee for the upgrades/app my husband is working on.  No!  Unless there is a reason our income drops, we can afford to keep going the way we are.  Thankfully, my husband works for dinner (when I make it!) and doesn’t expect more.  :)

I pay four people to help with this site:  Gina, Susan, Cherie, Karen.   Let me assure you that none of them are getting rich and they all deserve more for what they do!  When there’s “extra,” I make money.  When there’s not, I don’t.  Thankfully, overall I do.  I have additional ideas for improvements, but they all take time.  Since I don’t have more of that precious commodity, it would mean hiring additional people to help.  I’m always afraid to take that leap since my income goes up and down and I’m not willing to lose money by running this website.  But, up to this point, it’s always worked out.

I’ve also been asked what you can do to thank us or help support the site.  First of all, by asking that or telling us how the site has helped you . . . you’ve brought a smile to my face and probably the other gals.  Thank you!  Beyond that, my basic answer is . . . . use this site and tell others about it, if you find value in it!

Something even more tangible that you can do is bookmark the Coupons.com page on the site:

Whenever you print coupons from there (or any direct link we give), I get paid.  When you type in Coupons.com and go to their site, I don’t.  From time to time, I get paid for other links I give you, but that is one of the main ways I make money and we can continue to make the site free.

Another consistent source of income is from Google ads, as you probably know.  When you see something of interest and click on it (or just come to the site), they pay me a small amount.  It adds up!

So, please use the links we provide!  Many won’t bring me any revenue, but some do.  I try very hard not to post things just because I’ll get paid for them.  In fact, I just had a IM conversation with Susan a couple days ago, hesitating to post something because it made me money.  When I make money, I often give it extra thought — just to make sure that’s not what is motivating me to publish it.  I don’t want this site to become like so many out there . . . selling you one “bargain” after another just to make a buck or two.   I’m very firm on this.

Again, this link is a great one to bookmark and use . . . it has a value to you and to all of us who work behind the scenes.  Thank you!
http://www.bargainbeliever.com/blog/coupons-com-printables/   It’s also on the top menu bar, if that’s easier.

Thank for being here and trusting us to bring you deals we find value in!

~ Juli

P.S.  My husband is slowly working on the upgrades, but there is not a target date.  It just gets a couple hours here and there, as he can find time.  The biggest change (that will probably roll out first) will be for you to be able to move from device to device, being able to work on or pull up your completed lists.  I’m very excited and can’t wait to use it myself!

Bargain Believer Blog Button ~ To Share the Logo/Link ~ THANKS!

I posted this a long time ago, but it’s been long buried.   I’m going to be lazy and just copy the same post below.  :)

Bargain Believer

If you don’t have a blog/website, you may not have any clue what a “blog button” is.  I was with you, a couple years ago, before starting this website.

It’s the image above.  Basically, it’s the little logo “thing” that you can paste onto a website, with the computer code included (also called a widget).

I was recently asked for it and I remembered that I never told you it was now on the website, if you ever want it.  (Go to “about” on the top menu bar and then “blog button.”)

I realize this won’t thrill most of you, but some of you have a personal blog or website and you like to share your favorite online websites with your readers.  If that’s you and you’d be willing to post a link to Bargain Believer — thank you very much!  It’s appreciated more than you know.

Here’s the code if you want to grab it from here:

<div align="center"><a href="http://www.bargainbeliever.com" title="Bargain Believer"><img src="http://www.bargainbeliever.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/bargain_believer_125_white.png" alt="Bargain Believer" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

Thanks to our friend, Gary, who made the logo!  It will appear on the website someday.  It doesn’t “fit” (in computer ways) and the website is waiting for a redesign — someday!  It’s been on the Bargain Believer Facebook page for a long time, but that’s as far as we got.  There’s always plenty on my “to do” list!  :)

Update:  It’s still on that list.  I’m slow!  :)

New to Bargain Believer? ~ Shopping List, Facebook, Twitter, RSS, Email, Etc! :)


First of all, WELCOME!  I’m glad you’re here and hope you find ways to save for your family!  (Actually, I KNOW you will!)  :)  We focus on Arizona, though some deals are national.


If you’re active on Facebook, make sure you’ve “liked” Bargain Believer.  All updates are there right away and you have a better chance of seeing things before they disappear.  Plus, we post extra things over there sometimes, especially deals that are Facebook only deals or ones that we think will disappear very quickly.


I’m not a Twitter user, but the feeds automatically go there, so if you use Twitter, you can also follow there.  (No extras there, but all the updates on the website will be there.)  Note:  We’re having technical difficulties getting the feeds over there — hope to have it fixed soon!


Or, you can get email updates or see posts in your RSS feed.


Also, if you’re new or just never discovered the shopping list function, check it out.  You can make your own shopping lists, from the website.  (Sorry, can’t use it on mobile devices unless you have the newest iPad.  You can copy it and email it to yourself, if you want to pull it up on your mobile.)  You can customize it in many ways.  I use it myself and love it!

I made a video explaining how to use the new shopping list.  Among a few other things, it is sorted by category and so much more!!

Or . . . if you prefer to learn on your own, it shouldn’t be that hard.  Just click a green plus sign, from a shopping list on the website.  It’s fairly intuitive and you won’t have to listen to my ten minutes of babbling.  :)


And, Here’s a link to a previous post I did, that has some general information that you might find helpful.

Please ask any specific questions that you have!  You can ask on Facebook or email me:  juli@bargainbeleiver.com

Glad you’re here!
