Refreshing your closet and home doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. Teaming up with RetailMeNot, we're revealing the ultimate way to save on your favorite brands — and all it takes is the click of a button!

From shopping at all hours of the day — or night — to purchasing new shoes from the comfort of your couch, there's no question online shopping has major perks. And if you're anything like me, chances are you browse virtually more than you do IRL. But while it doesn't get any better than buying from bed, with the at-home experience, you miss out on seeing those nifty sale signs and getting the scoop on enticing deals from store greeters. Lucky for us, there's an easy fix for ensuring you get the best deals online, which means you can now nip your FOMO in the bud and couch shop with total confidence!

RetailMeNot is already my go-to site for saving money and discovering amazing coupons, and after recently trying out the RetailMeNot Genie browser extension, I can't believe I had been shopping all this time without it! Below, I'm sharing the benefits of this brilliant tool, from landing amazing deals to scoring cash back, and how easy it is to start using today. Trust me, your online shopping game will never be the same again.

What Is the RetailMeNot Genie Browser Extension?

RetailMeNot Genie is the company's free browser extension that, after installed on your computer, automatically finds and applies promo codes for you when you're shopping online. So basically, it's like sweet, sweet magic and ensures you never have to search for deals again! The best part? Not only do you save on amazing brands such as Macy's, Glamglow, Pier 1, and Sephora, RetailMeNot Genie also offers you cash back for your purchases. Yep, it pays you to shop. RetailMeNot Genie even finds, combines, and applies multiple offers at checkout in order to maximize your savings. Meaning you can get cash back while receiving a discount on everything you need — clothing, beauty, travel, and even food. Hello, game changer!

How Do I Use It?

What makes RetailMeNot Genie so user friendly is that it applies the discounts and cash-back offers straight to your shopping cart with an easy press of a button, equaling next-to-zero effort on your part. All you have to do is click this link to download the extension and just follow the instructions. That's literally it. From there, whenever you're shopping online, a little 'R' sitting in the corner of your browser will turn purple when deals are available. You can click it to see the offers immediately—but you don't even have to do that. Genie will automatically prompt you to "Apply All Savings" when you reach the checkout page. You can shop and save with total confidence.

What Kind of Deals Can I Get?

RetailMeNot offers thousands of coupons, deals, and cash-back offers that are constantly updating. They can range from receiving a certain percentage off to receiving a certain dollar amount off. Check your favorite retailers when you're ready to shop, and see what comes up! I recently used RetailMeNot Genie while doing some Christmas shopping at Macy's, and upon entering their site, I was greeted with a RetailMeNot Genie pop-up letting me know the deals and coupon codes that were available.


After activating my cash back offer for $15 off my purchase, I made sure to copy the coupon code as well, so that I could also get an extra 20% off a scarf for my mom.
