Black Friday Tip 29: Stack ’em Up!

There are 29 days until Black Friday 2011 and we’re counting them down with money saving and holiday shopping tips.

Today’s Tip:

Stack’em Up!

Some of you Monty Python fans may remember the skit about the royal society of people who put things on top of other things.

I’m a stacker of sorts myself. Mostly of papers and laundry that needs to be put away. While I certainly will enjoy a stack of pancakes or a stack of books, a stack of money is my favorite!

So today’s tip is to introduce you to the art to savings stacking! Look for deals that allow you to stack sales, coupons, cash back, rebates and free shipping. The higher the stack, the better the deal!

Watch out, because some deals may cancel out others, but many will stack nicely! For instance, some coupons will void cash back deals, or using a coupon code may void out the free shipping! That’s where the fun and the challenge comes in.

Play with the deals on Black Friday and see how high you can stack ’em. You can also sharpen your stacking skills by connecting with the experienced deal hunters in the FatWallet forums.

Oh, and if you get obsessed and feel the need to take your stacking of savings to other facets in your life, check this out: ThingsIStack. :)
