Check Items For Tax Free Status

 

 

Lots of things you wouldn’t expect are tax free this weekend. Lots of things you think should be tax free, well, just aren’t.

Compare Prices

 

 

Saving 8 bucks on a $100 dollar item, that is priced at $75 somewhere else, just doesn’t make good sense. So make sure to do all the normal comparison shopping that you would normally do.

Clip Those Coupons

 

 

Coupons are a always great way to save. For Tax Free Weekend, if you have them for the items that count, you could double or triple the value. Extreme Couponers know exactly what they were saving that coupon for, so do a little research before you leave the house, and print out some coupons for some stuff you know you will be purchasing.
