Living in the arctic has presented many challenges that we have never been faced with in the past. One of the biggest is shopping. In the past if I needed something I would take a five minute drive to the store, but here I don’t always have that option. Sure, there is a “big box” store here but it is about one quarter the size of Wal-Mart. The only things you can find here are the most basic and generic items needed for day-to-day life, and the prices are absurd. This inability to buy the things we want and need locally has forced use to be primarily online shoppers.
I have always been very diligent when it comes to looking for online deals, and one of my many practices is to look for “promo codes” before I make a purchase. I would add the products I wanted to my shopping cart, then at the checkout I would head on over to Google and do a search for “(store name) promo code”. This task could be very time consuming and often take longer than the actual shopping. So, imagine my delight when I find an e-mail from Kate over at CouponsAtCheckout.com in my inbox.
