If you've followed this blog for a while, you probably know just how much I care about saving money. I get most of my clothes, accessories, and home goods at Goodwill or other thrift stores. I try to practice green living through various recycling and upcycling projects. And when I do have to make new purchases, I really love using coupons and finding deals. In that regard, when the folks at Save1.com reached out to me to share some information about their organization, I jumped at the opportunity.
Save1.com is a family-owned coupon and loyalty site representing more than 5,000 of the top online merchants. What makes Save1.com different from other coupon sites is that when you shop with Save1, you save money and they provide a healthy meal to a malnourished child through one of their non-profit partners (including Feeding America and Action Against Hunger). Since launching in October 2012, Save1 has provided more than 93,000 meals (and counting)! Check out their "Our Story" page, Facebook, and Twitter for more information.
The way it works is so simple. You find a coupon code and use it to make a purchase; Save1 gets a small commission from the merchant; then Save1 uses that money to provide a meal through one of their Feeding Partners. It's that easy!
Save1 is an organization much like Toms, Warby Parker, and Free Rice (which I posted about in 2010(!!!) here), where you can help people in a small way by doing simple things or things that you already do. The next time you want to make a purchase at Banana Republic, Target, Snapfish, Old Navy, Sports Authority, Delia's, or Walgreens (or any of the other 5,000+ merchants), please do it through Save1. I know I will.
