Credit-Free Holiday: Carmen's Coupon Guide

As we count down to Black Friday, Carmen has been adamant about showing viewers how they can make it through the holiday season without putting anything on their plastic.

One way to make it through On the Money’s Credit-Free Holiday Shopping Season is with coupons. After all, who said clipping coupons isn’t cool? Especially now that there are web sites devoted to finding deals on anything from that flat-screen TV to the latest kids’ toys, scavenging for coupons is definitely back in style.

Carmen’s top three coupon web sites:
This is a free membership site is that can save you big at your favorite stores. After you sign up, they offer cash back rewards that can really add up. And to start, you get $5 in your account just for signing up. Just type in what you're looking for. Right now, they're offering $10 gift cards to Circuit City, Target and iTunes, among other stores.
Another great site that offers printable coupons. Plus, they have offers on tons of free samples (who doesn’t enjoy free samples?). Right now, you can get 10% off at Barnes & Noble.
One of the most popular savings sites out there with hundreds of coupons that can save you big bucks on your holiday purchases. Right now, get coupons for stores like Victoria’s Secret and JC Penney.

Forget the clippers, Carmen said. Head to the web and work your way toward a credit-free holiday.
