Arizona Coupon Blog (Beyond Just Coupons!) ~ Helpful Links & Info for Newcomers

Links for You . . .

If you’re new, welcome!  If you’re not, please pass this along to those who you want to help save BIG!  :)

If you ever have questions, you can comment below a post, send us and email (juli@bargainbeliever.com or gina@bargainbeliever.om), or leave a comment on the Bargain Believer Facebook page!

In addition to highlighting super discounts for places in Arizona and nationals deals, Bargain Believer covers . . .

We do the lists each week, before the new sales even start.  We also add deals that aren’t in the ad, later in the week.  Be sure to keep checking back.

You can either scroll through the website (www.BargainBeliever.com) or click the name of the store you want to shop at, on the top of the website.  That will get you the deals you want.

Make sure you click the GREEN PLUS SIGN to make your personalized shopping list!!  I like to call them “magical.”  They will categorize all your items to make your shopping easier.  You click what you want and it goes on your list.  It will categorize everything and give you other great options for making your organizing and shopping more simple.

Here’s a  video explaining the shopping list function (aka “Magical Green Plus Signs!)  Try it, you’ll like it!  :)

The other links will help you get to some of the important information.  Also, don’t forget that there is a Facebook page!  We post additional offers over there, mostly Facebook only deals and ones we think will be gone very quickly.  You can also ask questions over there.   Plus, it’s just more interactive and I love seeing your little faces and interacting with you.   :)

Here are some links for you (in no particular order) . . .

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

bargain_believer_logo

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:
http://www.bargainbeliever.com/blog/coupons-com-printables/

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!

Input, Please? ~ Bargain Believer App & Upgrades Coming!

bargain_believer_logo

Long story short . . . My husband and I are going to be kid-less this weekend.  We were going to get away, but decided to stay home and work on Bargain Believer upgrades.  Don’t worry, we’ll throw in a movie or two and dinners out, also.  I decided I’m not cooking and will pretend we’re on vacation!   Do you think dinners out are tax deductible, as a business expense?   :)

What functionality do you want an app for Bargain Believer or the website to have, that it doesn’t already?  And/or, what do you love and not want to lose?  (I doubt there will be much disappearing, but some tweaking.  Additionally, it would help me clarify what is of the most value to you.)

Dream big!  My husband is an amazing programmer and most of the “crazy” ideas I’ve given him, he hasn’t thrown out.  :)  In fact, he’s said, “Well, why not have it do more?”  Amazing stuff . . . but some are way in the future since they’re . .  well, crazy good and crazy time consuming!  :)

The list we have is very long, but I don’t want to be missing anything simple or complex that you might be thinking of.  I won’t respond to each suggestion, but I promise to read them all and consider them.  I hope to add to the list and/or make my vision more clear, knowing that you want what we’ve already thought of.

Please comment below or over on the Bargain Believer Facebook page.

By the way . . . this will take hours and hours and hours, so I can’t promise when there will be any visible changes or anything tangible.  We might roll a few things out slowly — not sure yet!

Thanks so much for your input!!  It will really help us.  ~ Juli

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!  :)
