Here’s how it works. Before you buy anything online, head over to Ebates. If you are brand new, create an account. For the first purchase you make over $25, you earn a $10 gift card back to your choice of about 4 or 5 different places including Target, Walmart and more!

Victoria’s Secret has become one of the MOST POPULAR retailers we post deals for on Yes We Coupon. That being said, one of the biggest complaints we receive from our readers is that there aren’t many deals posted for non-cardholders. The fact is, there just aren’t as many deals available online for those who don’t possess an VS Angel Credit Card. I’ve personally never seen another credit card offer more incentives and rewards. If you don’t have this card, it’s safe to say – You’re Missing Out (and you probably already know it!) My question is, what’s preventing you from getting one?

Are Credit Issues Stopping You From Getting An Angel Card?

 If the reason you have not gotten the card is due to credit issues, I may just have solution. Let me introduce you to something that is commonly known as “The Shopping Cart Trick.” This is a process that may allow those with less than perfect credit to obtain a Victoria’s Secret Angel Credit Card (Or other cards issued by the same company, Comenity Bank.) “The Shopping Cart Trick” is NOT guaranteed to work for everyone. YMMV (You’re mileage may vary). However, many have had success in obtaining select store credit cards by following these steps.


IMPORTANT! – First, before attempting “The Shopping Cart Trick”, it’s absolutely essential to view your credit report. You will specifically want to check your name and address. Make a note of it because you will want to replicate whatever is listed on your report exactly. Second, you will want to make sure you are opted in to receive pre-approved credit offers. You may want to wait a couple days after you have opted in to allow it to take effect before you attempt the steps below. GO HERE to opt in.

How To Do “The Shopping Cart Trick”

  • Can be performed from Desktop or From Mobile
  • Use a browser that allows for Private or Incognito Browsing and open a new Private Window (I successfully used Google Chrome)
  • Make sure your browser history has been completely cleared
  • Make sure you have enabled your internet browser to allow pop-ups
  • Search for and/or go to the website you would like to obtain a credit card for (Comenity Bank Must Issue The Store Credit Card)
  • Start Shopping – Add $100 – $200 worth of merchandise to your cart (Don’t worry – you don’t have to actually buy it!)
  • Begin the Checkout Process – checkout as a GUEST
  • Enter your shipping and billing information as it appears on your credit report (If you have moved within the last year, you may need to use your previous address.)
  • You will receive a pop-up with a pre-approved credit card offer if you have achieved success 
  • If you choose to accept the offer, complete the application with the Last 4 digits of your social security number (keep reading for why thesis important.) The card will be available for use immediately online (the physical card will be mailed to you.)

 Many stores offer store credit cards that come with amazing incentives and rewards - Victoria's Secret being the biggest one! If you don't have a credit card to your favorite store due to less than perfect credit, check out this shopping cart trick! | #hacks #tips #frugal #budget #victoriassecret #shopping

Comenity Bank Issued Store Credit Cards

This method will work for many different Comenity issued store credit cards. Here is a list of their most popular cards. Stores listed in bold print may be easier to obtain cards from.

Abercrombie&Fitch Credit Card

Will “The Shopping Cart Trick” Hurt Your Credit Score?

At this point, you may be wondering how “The Shopping Cart Trick” affects your credit. It’s important to note that the type of pre-approved credit offers that result from it only require a “soft Pull’ of your credit report. They will not negatively impact your score like a “hard pull” would. You can tell it is a soft pull by the fact that they ONLY require the last 4 digits of your social security number. Credit offers that require a full social security number are most likely a “hard” credit inquiry. Hard inquiries negatively impact your score and stay on your credit report for 2 years.

Warning! Use Credit Responsibly!

The most important thing to keep in mind is that credit cards should be used responsibly. You should not obtain a credit card unless you are prepared to pay it off in a timely manner. Store specific credit cards carry very high interest rates. Therefore, carrying a high balance can be costly. If you are using “The Shopping Cart Trick” and have less than perfect credit, obtaining cards may be an opportunity to improve your score over time. Don’t be frivolous with credit. The effects can be very damaging long term if it’s not used responsibly.

What If “The Shopping Cart Trick” Doesn’t Work?

The Victoria’s Secret Angel Card is notorious for being one of the easiest stores to obtain a credit card from by using the “Shopping Cart Trick.” If it doesn’t work for you, then it doesn’t work. That doesn’t mean that it won’t work for you at some point. It may also work for some stores of the stores listed above and not others. If you’re attempt is unsuccessful, t’s perfectly fine to try again in a few weeks. Also, keep an eye on your e-mail inbox for subsequent pre-approval offers after the fact. I wish you the best of luck! I hope you found this information helpful and informative.

Top Printable Coupon Tips & 10 Sites To Find Them

July 7, 2018 BY Yes We Coupon
Share This Post:


When it comes to printable coupons…I’m a HUGE fan! I definitely use way more printables than I do insert coupons. In general, I find there to be way more coupons for Food & Beverages available than there are in the newspaper insert coupons, plus the values seem to be better than what my region gets.  That means that printing coupons online is a big part of my coupon plan.

With the right setup, printable coupons can be super easy and convenient, plus, you can pick and choose which to print and which to pass on based on your personal needs. That, of course, makes it easier to manage while keeping your coupons organized for regular use.

Top Printable Coupon Tips & 10 Sites To Find Them

  1. Most printable coupon sites allow you to print 2 of the same coupon per computer. There are exceptions, though. Sometimes the coupon will only be limited to one print. If you need more, you will need to gain access to more than one computer or mobile device. You may not have to look far, though, many smartphones and tablets offer the ability to print coupons if you have a compatible wireless printer.
  2. Most printable coupons have special indicators to ensure they are not photocopies. The most common forms are some sort of unique ID number that can be used to track whether or not the coupon has been previously redeemed.  This helps prevent coupon fraud, and can protect both the store accepting them, as well as you when you use them.
  3. Just like insert coupons, printable coupons have restrictions. All the information you need is there for the reading. Always be sure to check for restrictions as far as product sizes and how many coupons can be redeemed per transaction.
  4. DO NOT EVER photocopy coupons. This is a form of coupon fraud that has major repercussions including losing your ability to print coupons from certain websites.  As mentioned above, most printable coupons have a way to track if they have been used before.  If you are photocopying printable coupons and using in stores, you will be found out, and that can even lead to criminal charges in many situations.
  5. DO NOT EVER BUY, SELL, or TRADE PRINTABLE COUPONS. Bottom line, you don’t know where they are coming from and you don’t know where they are going to. Just because you play by the rules doesn’t mean the buyers or the sellers do. Don’t even leave your printable coupons on the shelves as an act of kindness. You never know what the person that finds them will do with them.  That unique code mentioned above tracks back to you, not the person you gave them to as a gift or trade.

Here are TEN sites for Printable Coupons!

To take advantage of the convenience of using printable coupons, use our favorite printable coupon websites.  These are free sites that are easy to navigate and use.  I love the convenience and the variety.

NOTE: Most sites will only be available to print from a desktop. Be sure to get the Coupons.com and Grocery IQ apps though for your smartphone!

  1. Coupons.com (By far the most popular site with the most available coupons!)
  2. SmartSource.com
  3. RedPlum.com
  4. Pickupthevalues.com (Kimberly Clark Brand Family Coupons including Kleenex, Scott, Huggies & More!)
  5. PGEveryday.com (Proctor & Gamble Coupons)
  6. BettyCrocker.com (General Mills Brand Family Coupons, New Coupons available monthly)

Target Vs. Walmart! Which Stores Takes The CAKE!

Target Vs. Walmart! Which Stores Takes The CAKE!

Target Vs. Walmart

Imagine this: You have some extra money and you want to buy some beauty items. Here’s the hard part. Do you go to Target or Walmart? Unless you have a favorite store, you may have a hard choice to make. Both of these merchants have reward programs and e-coupons on beauty items. Which program has the best the best deals?


Rewards Programs: Walmart vs. Target


Target’s reward program, the Red Card, gives you 5 percent off your total off your purchase price. To obtain a Red Card, you must either apply for a Target credit card or link the card to a debit card. Also, Target has a coupon app you can download to your mobile device called Cartwheel. Check the app of a wide range of beauty department discounts.

You may have heard of Savings Catcher. This is a new app introduced Walmart. It allows you to scan your Walmart receipt to the app. Walmart will cross match the prices from other retailers for the same items listed on the receipt. If the app discovers a cheaper price on the item somewhere else, the Savings Catcher refunds the amount to you via an e-gift card. The e-gift card can only be used at Walmart. Anyone can sign up for Savings Catcher and use it via the app or online. Savings Catcher is available on iTunes and Google Play.


Beauty Box: Walmart or Target

Another new feature Walmart recently rolled out is a beauty box. It is supposed to rival Target. The beauty box features new hair care, skin care and cosmetic samples. One full-sized product is in each box. Most boxes also include coupons on the samples in the box. The down side of the beauty boxes is that it is seasonal. It is about $5 and doesn’t include shipping. When you sign up for the Walmart Beauty Box, you automatically get a new shipment each season.

Target spontaneously releases its beauty boxes. The box features hair care, skin care and cosmetic samples. You also get coupons. The reason why they are considered “spontaneous” is because there’s no set time for the release. They are usually seasonal. The cost of the beauty box is $7. Shipping is free.


Walmart and Target In-House Brands and Exclusives


Both Target and Walmart have in-house brands. These brands are typically priced lower than equivalent to the brand names they stock. Target’s in-house brand, Up & Up, carries beauty and health items like makeup remover wipes, sun care and shaving cream. Equate is Walmart’s in-house brand. Its brand includes health, beauty and pharmacy items like lotion, aspirin and shaving cream.


Both stores carry a vast selection of items ranging from beauty brands, products and certain type of children’s clothing. To find these items you may have an easier time checking The Children’s Place promo codes, Old Navy and Victoria’s Secret coupons.

Let’s take a further look at the exclusive brands offered at Target and Walmart:

Target’s beauty exclusive brands consists of:

  1. Pixi by Petra: Cosmetics brand that is cruelty-free that features items like infused botanicals.
  2. Sonia Kashuk: This is another cosmetics brand that features high quality products at a mass merchant price.
  3. Laneige: This is a skincare company that features products for hydrating skin.


Exclusive brands offered by Walmart includes:

  1. Salon Perfect: This is a salon themed beauty brand that features products like eyebrow grooming products, nail lacquers and eyelashes.
  2. Hard Card Cosmetics: This edgy brand is geared towards Walmart’s younger customers. It features outerwear, cosmetics and glasses.
  3. Flower Cosmetics: Flower Cosmetics is another cruelty-free brand. It only features natural ingredients.


Price Comparison: Is Walmart or Target Better?


You’ll find some price comparisons below. These are 10 favorite beauty products you can find at Target and Walmart.

Target Vs. Walmart! Which Stores Takes The CAKE!

Yes, you may have noticed that both retailers’ price points don’t differ a lot. One item may be cheaper at Walmart. Another item may be cheaper at Target. Shopping with coupons will help make the up the difference if you like shopping at one company over another.

Here’s the questions. Are you a Walmart fan or a Target fan?

5 Super Simple Beauty Hacks To Save You Money!

July 6, 2018 BY Yes We Coupon
Share This Post:


I’m sure you’ve heard of life hacks, which are not only awesome time savers but really clever! Well,  how about some for beauty? Here are some BEAUTY HACKS I use regularly that are both cheap and an easy fix to keep you stylin’!

Use concealer as a primer! 


Do you like your eyeshadow and lipstick to stay all day? Primers can be very expensive. Luckily, concealer works both as a eye primer and a lip primer. For your eyes, it keeps that shadow locked in and also creates a nice light base to build upon. With lips, you will want to moisturize first and then apply your concealer. The light color allows for more control over your lip shape when it comes to use a lip liner afterwards, as well.

What I use:  

I use cover girl concealer as a primer as far as regular concealer recently discovered NYX full coverage concealer that is both cheap and awesome!

Be green!


If you have blemishes or redness like I do, you know the struggle of covering them up. Let me assure you, there is a way! The color green counteracts the redness of your blemishes or acne. The best news drugstore brands are now making green primer! Talk about a score! I just dab some of the green primer on just the blemish and use my better primer for a full face coverage!

Brow & eye combo pencils! 


These are awesome and you don’t need to buy a super expensive one. I have a combo pencil from one of those makeup kits at Rite Aid and it works great ! I suggest getting a combo because you get two products for the price of  one, more bang for your buck!

What I use:  

As far as a brow pencil goes any brand will work as long as it transfers some color. Now as for brow gel I use Benefit Cosmetics Brow Gel, it really completes the look and gives your brows a more uniformed look.

Slow down on the eyeliner. 


Want your eyes to pop? Line your top lid, but only part of your bottom lid. This creates the illusion of bigger eyes because our eyes are naturally drawn to light. If you darken something, it looks smaller and if you lighten it it looks bigger. The more lightness at the bottom of your eye, the wider it appears!

What I use: 

I use the Sephora Brand Eye Liner I have both a black and brown one depending on how bold my look for the day is.

DIY dry shampoo!


Have oily hair, but don’t have time to shower? No problem! Just use cornstarch. Not only is it a quick and cheap alternative, it is also much better for your hair than most dry shampoos because it’s natural. Don’t forget; there is often a coupon available for this during holiday baking season, as well!

The Sales Cycle: What to Stock up on and WHEN!

July 6, 2018 BY Swaller
Share This Post:

stockpile 1


I remember when I first started couponing, I’d jump and run to the store for every sale. “No way the price will EVER get that low again!”. Once you dive in and get your feet wet you realize the same sales come around again. No need to buy 10 years worth, just enough to get you through til the next sale.

Have you ever noticed that produce prices vary wildly throughout the year? For instance strawberries are crazy high in my area right now, about $5-$6 for a pound. All spring and summer I could get them for about $1.50 per pound. You can either:

  • Stock up and attempt to freeze extra produce. I have not personally tried this so I’m not sure what the quality will be like.
  • Or, choose fresh fruits and veggies that are in season and priced lower.

In this article, we’re going to show you what to expect each month of the year: what produce is in season when (keep in mind some regions of the country there can be variations.) Certain products get deeply discounted each month of the year and typically, manufacturer’s are in sync and put out coupons. Ready?
