How to find last-minute Christmas savings

We went in search of last minute deals with one Austin group known for its savings

AUSTIN - In what may be the most festive office in Austin, the magic of the season is matched only by the savings found in it.

“This is home base we have about 400 people in our downtown Austin office,” said Sara Skirboll of RetailMeNot.com.

The elves at RetailMeNot.com work year round to find the best deals.

“There are still lots of great gifts out there for you to buy and more importantly great ways to save,” she said.

RetailMeNot.com has more than half a million coupons at more than 50,000 retailers, restaurants and more.

But what's even better...

“You can do it all from the comfort of your couch,” said Skirboll.

There are even savings on some of the hottest toys of the season

Toys R Us is offering 20-dollars cash back when you shop online and you can get it delivered to the store so you can pick it up.

Skirboll says don't be afraid to think outside the box. You can find some good deals on restaurants, hotels even concert tickets.

“Hotels.com is offering 40 percent off on hotel stays. Plus, we have something we like to call stacking your savings where you get a coupon code or a great deal, and on top of that, you can buy a discount. So right now, Hotels.com has up to eight percent off on discount gift cards so you get them for the full value, but you get a price break. If you stack the savings, you save even more,” said Skirboll.

“Stub Hub is one of my favorites,” said Skirboll. “They are offering up to $30 cash back from tickets to experiences on their website. So certainly check out Stub Hub if you have someone who is really hard to buy for or they're just a big music or sports fan.”

Retail Me Not.com also just launched Genie: a new extension that will instantly find the savings for you.

Just launch it on Google Chrome and anytime you are searching your favorite retailers it automatically applies the best cash back and coupon offers when you check out. 

More great ways to save not just during the holidays.
