Obscure Coupon Web Sites Could Help You Save Big

Did you know there are many obscure Web sites out there just waiting to help you save money?

CBS News business and Economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis stopped by "The Early Show" to point them out to viewers.

The first site Jarvis mentioned is Coupon Sherpa.

Coupon Sherpa compiles user-submitted online coupons, printable coupons, grocery coupons and even mobile coupons and ranks them according to how many votes they receive. With a few clicks of the mouse button, you'll be on your way to exceptional savings. Retailers include Ann Taylor, Target, Radio Shack and many more.

Another unusual site Jarvis recommends is Zilok.

If the thought of buying a new chainsaw for a one-off project makes you cringe, Zilok is a site that lets you rent everyday items from everyday people in your area. Better still, you can list items that you'd happily let others rent in order to make a little extra money. The entire process is regulated through the site, ensuring that everything goes smoothly. It's a smart way to avoid buying big-ticket items that you don't need on a regular basis.

If your regular bills are too high, Jarvis says Bill Shrink may come in handy.

Now you can get a list of credit card offers, cell phone plans, cable packages, and savings account offers that are better than what you have in less than five minutes. Answer a few questions about your current plan and Bill Shrink will recommend better options to fit your needs.

Last but not least, Jarvis checked out Shop It To Me.

Have you ever stumbled upon an amazing sale on your favorite designer clothing brand, only to discover that they are out of your particular size? Shop It To Me may be able to help: simply plug in the sizes you wear and the designers you love, and the site will alert you to incredible deals from across the Web. You can be alerted as frequently, or infrequently, as you'd like, and you'll always stay abreast of the lowest prices on the clothes you adore.
