saving moneyObviously at Coupon Cactus we love discounts. But more than that, we love sharing them with you. We know that you work hard and we want to help you get the most for your money—and even help you earn some cash back. If you’re not sold on saving money, here are some reasons you may want to become part of the Coupon Cactus nation and see what all the love is about.

  • We give you $3 just for signing up and liking us on Facebook. What’s better than a discount? Free money!
  • Not paying full price for stuff is great. How many times have you proudly told your friends about a great deal that you got on new shoes, a great top, or even a great trip? Think of all the bragging rights you’ll have for constantly taking advantage of deep discounts when you shop online.
  • After you are done bragging to your friends about all the money you saved on Coupon Cactus, you can tell them about all the cash back you’ve earned too. Why? Because if you refer them to Coupon Cactus, you earn cash back every time they shop through Coupon Cactus. So you can sit back, relax, and watch your cash back accrue!
  • Now that you’ve saved money, you have extra cash to spend, put into savings, or help pay off some credit cards. For instance, say you land a great deal on airfare to Florida. Instead of paying $350 for a flight, you found a deal for $200. That’s a $150 difference you can spend on your trip. We think that’s pretty fantastic.
  • Finding a great discount feels like winning. When you take the time to shop around, you’ll find better prices for those things you may have planned on paying full price for. Locating the best price becomes something of a game and when you hit that great sale, it’s pretty exciting.

Those are just a few of our favorite things! Stop by Coupon Cactus today and see what we’re talking about. We promise you won’t be disappointed.

Everyone is Irish on St. Pat'sSt. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, marks the death of Ireland’s most renowned patron saint. The holiday got its color and its trademark shamrock because it’s said that St. Patrick use to wear a shamrock to represent the holy trinity (you know, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit).

Some quick facts about St. Patrick…After being held captive in Ireland for six years, he escaped back to his homeland of Britain where he studied religion for 15 years. He then helped to spread Christianity to pagans in Ireland. To help Irish pagans relate to Christianity, Patrick superimposed the sun, a powerful Irish symbol, onto the traditional Christian cross, creating the Celtic cross.

St. Patrick celebrations come in all shapes and sizes, and take place all around the world. So, if you’re looking for something to do on St. Patrick’s day this year, here’s a quick peek at how folks around the world celebrate.

  • Much like many cities throughout the U.S., the people of London attend parades and get dressed up in greens and shamrocks.
  • In Tokyo, people get dressed up like St. Patrick and march in a parade.
  • This one’s real fun: In Chicago, city workers dye the river green! If you’re looking for something fun to do this year, that seems like a must-see!
  • Dublin’s city center holds a 4-day festival, but you’d expect them to go big!
  • Munich, Germany has the largest spectator parade outside of Dublin, with up to 10,000 spectators.
  • Of course, New Yorkers go big as well. Aside from the parade, you’ll find pretty much every Irish bar packed to the brim unless you get there super early, we’re talking like 10 a.m.

What will you be doing this year for St. Patrick’s Day? If you take a cue from above and plan a last minute trip, share some photos with us!
