Posted by Amanda Grace on August 18, 2015

It’s the world’s favorite social media site, and while it is true that you can use Facebook to keep in touch with high school friends, co-workers, family and even the ex, and connect with your favorite brands, Facebook is also a useful tool that can save you money each and every day!

You are actually already saving money each and every time that you log into the site if you think about it. You can talk to anyone, anywhere, at any time, and do it for costs no more than what you spend for internet service. There are no long-distance charges or roaming fees to worry about. You can share photos with those you want to share with and it is quick and easy to do it all. But there are many other ways that you can save money using Facebook.  

Local yard sale, flea market and buy and trade pages on Facebook are a good way to not only find goods but also to part with items in your home that are no longer needed. There’s no headache with dealing with a garage sale, and it is a free, quick and easy process. Also look for stockpile pages in your local area. These pages enable you to buy lots of items for one low price, often resulting is significant savings.

Since you are connected to so many different people on Facebook you can use the site to save money by asking to borrow things that you need only temporarily rather than going out and buying them. You never know who on your friend’s list has just what you are looking for and will allow you to use it for a short period of time at no cost or for a small rental fee. It sure beats paying full-price for the item.

Connecting with your favorite brands on Facebook enables you to save money since you are the first to know of valuable coupons, contests, promotional offers and freebies. Companies offer these special incentives on a regular basis, but they are offered only in limited supply and on a first come, first serve basis. When you ‘like’ your favorite brands on Facebook you will be one of the first to know of these awesome offers as they become available.

Coupon groups are popular on Facebook, and by joining such a group you can learn more about saving money with coupons, where to find them, how to score the best deals and so much more. With such a vast number of couponing and money saving groups out there you can certainly learn a lot as you connect with and meet new people.   

There are so many fun, simple and easy ways for you to make the most out of your Facebook social media experience and save money each and every time you log in. Put these money-saving tips to good use and keep more of your money in your pockets.
