Feedback - Ultimate Guide to Saving Money Online in Australia

I wrote this blog post https://www.adamfowlerit.com/2017/04/ultimate-guide-saving-m... and thought the best group of people to ask was the ozbargain forumers.

Is there anything major I've missed in my list of ways to find deals online? OzBargain was #1 of course…

Edit: Thanks for responses so far, I've updated a few bits based on your advice!

    Must have one of following cards Citibank Plus and 28 Degrees or BankWest Platinum ??

    • For the overseas purchases? That's valid, I'll add it.

    • Or ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures - no overseas transaction fees + rewards points.

    I disagree with visiting Ozbargain… the more I visit, the more I spend… It's a never ending cycle T.T

    • hold back in buying

      • If only it was that easy… I see a bargain… i buy it regardless of whether I need it or not! =P

    • But you're SAVING more :P

      • Thats the way!

      • Spend more to save more. That's the vicious cycle of ozbargaining.

  • Pricehipster?

    StaticIce?

    Thought those would be good benchmarks to get a sense of what stores have and respective prices before going on a hunt for a bargain?

    • StaticIce was mentioned - numbered points are not an indiction of order :)

      • Camelcamelcamel ?

    Change Cashrewards to cash back sites.
    Topcashback pay out most times more on the same retailers as CR.

    • That's fair - will do. Do you sign up via topcashback.com for Australia still?

      • I've got a UK account

  • Good write-up.

    BTW, the new entertainment books (2017/2018) have increased a bit in price to $70, no longer $65. This is for the benefit of those thinking of getting the new book. Your info is still correct for the current edition, which works till 1 June 2017.

    R U zoo escapee, or not even really here?

    If escapee, I will give you safe haven. Otherwise…

    Stay overseas:
    Get free back scratches. Hope
    for tummy tickles..

    • That's not me, second cousin… but we have pretty big families.

      • Be adopted by this family and entire extended fam will get free scarves & little gold hats.
        Excellent money-saving.

        Create int'l-focused CapybaraBargain website instead of blog and add that tip to a wiki.

        You know you want to.
        The next tech-billionaire (after scotty)?

        Do it!

        :-)
