Score Bargains from Your Favorite Online Stores, Courtesy of Twitter
Tired of combing the web for coupon codes or scouring shopping comparison sites for the best deals? Twitter has you covered. Here’s who to follow to get the good stuff you really want.
@earlybird – EarlyBird is Twitter’s own offers service, chirping out coupons and deals from Twitter advertising partners. While this sounds like a massive marketing spamfest, there aren’t many tweets from this account, and when they do tweet, the deals are actually pretty good. Example, LiveNation summer concert tickets – 2 for $20. Previous deals include 50% off from The North Face, Timberland and Gap.
@momswhosave – Find coupon codes and get $25 restaurant gift certificates for as little as $2, plus other mom must-haves including clothing, shoes, freebies and bags for adults and kids.
@techbargains – Embrace your inner geek with coupon codes for Apple Store, NewEgg, Dell, Logitech and more.
@amazondeals – “Deal of the Day” and lightning deals on just about everything, from Amazon.com. Discounts run the gamut from photo printers to kettle chips. You can use desktop software like TweetDeck or Seesmic to filter tweets so that you only get notified if something matches a particular keyword.
@tinymassive – TinyMassive is a cool little Twitter bot that lets you compare product prices directly on Twitter. Just tweet what you’re searching for to @tinymassive and its tweet response will contain your Twitter username, the number of search results (and a link to them) and the lowest price of the item.
