Here’s some good money-saving advice from Tip Hero on making use of Google Alerts.

Google has a neat little tool that sends you alerts whenever a search term you specify appears in a new web page, blog post, or news article. You can choose how often you want to receive alerts by setting it to once a day, once a week, or as it happens. Google will send you a digest of items containing your search term right to your inbox. You can set up multiple alerts and delete them at any time. I’ve been using Google Alerts to save money in a variety of ways:

Coupons & Codes: There are several brands, products and stores I buy from on a frequent basis. I have set  up several alerts with store, product, and brand name and the terms “coupon” and “code.”

Sales & Deals: If I know I will be making an upcoming purchase for some product I will set up a google alert for that product’s name and the terms “deal” and “sale.”

Product Reviews: For products I am looking into purchasing I will set up a google alert for the product’s name and the term “review.” . . .
