Comments 0 Comments

Whether you’re looking for towels or a new couch, socks or a crate for your cat, there’s a pretty good chance Overstock.com will have it. Here are 14 ways to save on whatever you crave at this online store.

1. Sign Up for Email Alerts

Overstock sends its email subscribers exclusive coupons pretty frequently, and, as of press time, when you sign up, you could get an automatic 10% off coupon.

2. Join Club O Gold

Club O members get free shipping on all orders and earn 5% in rewards dollars for every purchase. Other incentives include 5% in Club O Reward Dollars every time you pay with your registered card at a participating restaurant and up to 40% in rewards when you purchase certain items on their deals page.

3. Take Advantage of Free Membership Opportunities

Membership to Club O Gold is free for certain people (first responders, teachers and students, active military and veterans, for instance), so be sure to take advantage of it if you fall into one of those categories. Otherwise it costs $19.95 to join.

4. Use Overstock Coupons

Visit Overstock’s own coupon page to take advantage of daily deals that will save you even more money.

5. Get Coupons From Other Sites

Search around for coupon offers from other sites like Coupons.com, RetailMeNot or even Groupon.

6. Install Honey

These aren’t the only sites with coupons that could help you save at Overstock. Instead of spending hours searching, consider installing Honey on your computer and let the coupon aggregation site apply the best coupon code at checkout for you. (Be sure to read the full terms and conditions before signing up so you know what the tool entails.)

7. Consider an Overstock Credit Card

Its Club O Rewards MasterCard offers up to 8% back in Club O dollars on Overstock purchases (5% through Club O, 3% for using the card), 2% back on gas and groceries and 1% back everywhere else. You’ll get a $40 statement credit after your first purchase. Just pay any balances off in full: The card carries a variable APR of 16.49% to 25.49%, depending on creditworthiness. (You can get a sense of where you might fall by viewing two of your free credit scores, updated every 14 days, on Credit.com.)

8. Check Out Flash Deals

Sign up for flash deal notification emails on products or check the Flash Deals page for new discounts starting daily at 12 p.m. EST.

9. Shop Clearance & Liquidation Items

Check out Overstock’s Clearance & Liquidation section for up to 75% off on select items. You can sign up for weekly clearance notification emails, as well.

10. Take a Second Before Making That Purchase

You can often cash in on extra savings by putting items in your shopping cart online and then waiting a bit to actually buy them. Stores often send follow up emails to customers reminding them of what’s in their carts, usually with a coupon attached to incentivize them to make the purchase even more.

11. Go the Gift Card Route

Sites like Raise.com sell gift cards for stores at a discounted price. For example, if you visit the Raise Overstock page you might find an Overstock gift card valued at $50 that costs you $45.

12. Check out PayPal Offers

PayPal often offers discounts on certain shops when you pay with your account. Check their offers page frequently for updated offers.

13. Make Purchases on a Holiday

Like most stores, Overstock tends to offer big discounts around certain holidays. The Presidents’ Day sale, for example, had certain home décor, garden and patio, and luggage items — along with tons of others — at up to 70% off. You can check out holiday sale previews on their Deals Destination page.

14. Ship Smart

Overstock changes its shipping offers throughout the year, so check out their shipping calendar page to make the most of free standard or upgraded, expedited and express shipping offers, which are often associated with specific holidays.

Hello, Reader!

Thanks for checking out Credit.com. We hope you find the site and the journalism we produce useful. We wanted to take some time to tell you a bit about ourselves.

Our People

The Credit.com editorial team is staffed by a team of editors and reporters, each with many years of financial reporting experience. We’ve worked for places like the New York Times, American Banker, Frontline, TheStreet.com, Business Insider, ABC News, NBC News, CNBC and many others. We also employ a few freelancers and more than 50 contributors (these are typically subject matter experts from the worlds of finance, academia, politics, business and elsewhere).

Our Reporting

We take great pains to ensure that the articles, video and graphics you see on Credit.com are thoroughly reported and fact-checked. Each story is read by two separate editors, and we adhere to the highest editorial standards. We’re not perfect, however, and if you see something that you think is wrong, please email us at editorial team [at] credit [dot] com,

The Credit.com editorial team is committed to providing our readers and viewers with sound, well-reported and understandable information designed to inform and empower. We won’t tell you what to do. We will, however, do our best to explain the consequences of various actions, thereby arming you with the information you need to make decisions that are in your best interests. We also write about things relating to money and finance we think are interesting and want to share.

In addition to appearing on Credit.com, our articles are syndicated to dozens of other news sites. We have more than 100 partners, including MSN, ABC News, CBS News, Yahoo, Marketwatch, Scripps, Money Magazine and many others. This network operates similarly to the Associated Press or Reuters, except we focus almost exclusively on issues relating to personal finance. These are not advertorial or paid placements, rather we provide these articles to our partners in most cases for free. These relationships create more awareness of Credit.com in general and they result in more traffic to us as well.

Our Business Model

Credit.com’s journalism is largely supported by an e-commerce business model. Rather than rely on revenue from display ad impressions, Credit.com maintains a financial marketplace separate from its editorial pages. When someone navigates to those pages, and applies for a credit card, for example, Credit.com will get paid what is essentially a finder’s fee if that person ends up getting the card. That doesn’t mean, however, that our editorial decisions are informed by the products available in our marketplace. The editorial team chooses what to write about and how to write about it independently of the decisions and priorities of the business side of the company. In fact, we maintain a strict and important firewall between the editorial and business departments. Our mission as journalists is to serve the reader, not the advertiser. In that sense, we are no different from any other news organization that is supported by ad revenue.

Visitors to Credit.com are also able to register for a free Credit.com account, which gives them access to a tool called The Credit Report Card. This tool provides users with two free credit scores and a breakdown of the information in their Experian credit report, updated twice monthly. Again, this tool is entirely free, and we mention that frequently in our articles, because we think that it’s a good thing for users to have access to data like this. Separate from its educational value, there is also a business angle to the Credit Report Card. Registered users can be matched with products and services for which they are most likely to qualify. In other words, if you register and you find that your credit is less than stellar, Credit.com won’t recommend a high-end platinum credit card that requires an excellent credit score You’d likely get rejected, and that’s no good for you or Credit.com. You’d be no closer to getting a product you need, there’d be a wasted inquiry on your credit report, and Credit.com wouldn’t get paid. These are essentially what are commonly referred to as "targeted ads" in the world of the Internet. Despite all of this, however, even if you never apply for any product, the Credit Report Card will remain free, and none of this will impact how the editorial team reports on credit and credit scores.



Your Stories

Lastly, much of what we do is informed by our own experiences as well as the experiences of our readers. We want to tell your stories if you’re interested in sharing them. Please email us at story ideas [at] credit [dot] com with ideas or visit us on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by.
