QuickTip: Save money by searching for Coupon Codes before buying online

Whenever I’m in the final steps of buying something online, and I see a field for Promotional Code on the order form, I immediately open a new browser tab and do a quick google search for the name of the store plus “Coupon Code” or “Promotional Code” (without the quotes). More than half the time I find a code in less than 2 minutes, especially if it’s a major online shop. You’ll find that it can be very easy to save 10%, or get free shipping, etc… It doesn’t always work out, and I won’t spend a lot of time looking, but I’ve made it part of my routine when shopping online.

Adobe Releases Lightroom 2

Yay! Adobe released Lightroom 2 this morning. I’m a big fan of Lightroom and this version offers some welcome enhancements. An upgrade will cost you $99. Regular price is still $299.

If you want a guided tour, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) has produced a whole series of videos outlining the new features. You can see them here.
