Saving on back to school shopping goes beyond coupons and discount sales. There are several ways to get creative with savings, whether you are shopping for your kids, sending your child off to college, or shopping for your home office. Carrie Rocha, the “Super Saver” on Twin Cities Live that airs on Minneapolis’ ABC affiliate KSTP-TV, is here with some great tips and resources, like GiftCards.com, that will help shoppers find savings, even before leaving the house! Here’s an excerpt:

Clothes & Shoes: Buy discounted gift cards before heading to major retailers. For example, GiftCards.com saves you 2-20% on legit gift cards and most can be delivered electronically 24 hours after purchase.

Dorm Room Essentials: This stuff adds up to be a big ticket! Again, GiftCards.com is a great resource for these larger ticket items. Use apps such as Shop Savvy to price comparison shop to see if any other retailers have the product at a better price.
