Let’s be honest, everyone loves a great deal. Even if you’re not into clipping coupons or scouring the web for discount codes, you probably won’t say no if someone offers you a deal on anything from health insurance to solar panels. Who would? After all, less money on health insurance is more money to spend on a vacation or a self-care present.

These days, with a shift in consumer activity meaning that a lot of sales happen online, there’s a lot of competition for giving the best deals out there. That’s great for regular folks like yourself, but only if you can find those sales. So, how do you get to the saving part of the shopping experience, without making the search for deals a part-time job? If you’re intrigued, keep reading to find out some tips and tricks.

College is expensive, isn’t it?

Yes, it is. Actually, college costs are rising, despite the fact that much of the learning happens virtually these days. That being said, high school students who are looking at their next steps can be a lot smarter about the application process by finding the perfect college admission counselor. Don’t spend thousands of dollars on application fees for every college out there. Speak to a counselor and pare down your list. A counselor will also help you figure out about financial help or scholarships you’re eligible for, and college admission counseling can make the process both smoother and less expensive. For anyone with a teen in high school, take advantage of the counselors around the United States to be smarter about the college application process. Knowledge will save you money during the college search.

Prescription medicines made affordable.

Even if you have health insurance, paying for prescriptions can be a headache and a half.

If you’ve found yourself dreading the pharmacy because of the financial burden of paying for medicine, the digital Health Marketplace by USARx is the place for you. The health marketplace is designed to do the comparison shopping for you so that you get the least expensive prices on medicines available, regardless of what health coverage you have. No more waiting for a special enrollment period in the health insurance marketplace. Now, you can afford those medicines today.


Energy costs just got a lot cheaper.

For any homeowner or renter, utilities are a downer. Just when you think you’re going to make it to the end of the month, maybe even save a little something for a rainy day, that utility bill comes in the mail and ruins everything. Well, have you ever considered cutting out the middleman and making your own utilities? Or, in other words, have you ever considered putting solar panels on your roof?

Solar panels aren’t for everyone, but when you look at how solar retailers work with big energy providers, solar users seem to be onto something. With the right solar panels for the right price and the right solar installers to hook them up, you might end up making money off of your roof, instead of paying a utility company for electricity. If you live in a sunny spot like Nevada, solar panels might be a good fit for you.

Whatever your household income, you could probably do with a few deals, and these tips can help you get them. Start saving money on getting your teen into their dream school, become one of the solar users who sell excess power to the utility company, and save money on prescription medications. By cutting down on these big-ticket items, you’ll be enjoying lower costs across the board, and you’ll get to enjoy more of your income each month.
