Save over Spring Break – A Holiday for the Whole Family

 

Turns out Spring Break isn’t just for the kids after all! Grab your swim gear, slather on the sunscreen, and let’s party!

But wait, isn’t spring break supposed to be expensive?

Not at all…

Although the holiday might make you think of expensive airline tickets and hotel reservations, there are actually plenty of active and affordable ways to spend your Spring Break without breaking the bank. Before hitting the road make sure you check out these top tips to save on Spring Break this year, have a great time, and make some memories with the whole family.

 

 

Let’s have a look at a few of useful apps first.

  • Hopper – Analyze information from thousands of flights with this flight price forecasting APP, simply plug in your date and destination and Hopper’s deep learning algorithm will try to estimate the cheapest time to buy your ticket.

 

  • Tripit – Compile your travel itinerary in one convenient place, you can enter your travel costs and Tripit will automatically create a budget and saving plan for your holiday.

 

  • Cool Cousin – Connect with local tour guides all around the world. Your local guide will happily show you around the city of your choice, give you an authentic (and hopefully cheaper) experience.

 

 

And now for a few saving rules in general…

  • Don’t forget to check online!

It may seem obvious but don’t forget to look for deals on local restaurants and activities no matter where you end up, during peak holiday season all sorts of businesses love to begin advertising online and it’s the perfect time to find some bargains.

 

  • Always Compare Prices!

Spring break is a competitive time in the tourism industry. Hundreds of companies will be fighting for your attention and business. Don’t forget to compare prices and if you get the chance, try speaking to customer support and playing companies against each other to find a better deal.

 

 

  • Take advantage of last minute discounts!

The majority of people will tell you to book your holidays way in advance in order to secure the largest savings. However, if you aren’t the type to worry too much about where you’re going, you can wait until the last minute to find some fantastic savings and discounts on travel.

 

  • Plan & Research everything

Somewhat counter intuitive to our last point, even if you are planning to leave the actual booking of your holiday till the last minute then it still might not be a terrible idea to research and plan possible vacation venues. Have kids? Find out what restaurants offer family or group meal discounts? Grandpa and Grandma coming along? Make sure you make full use of that seniors discount.

 

 

  • Focus on yourself and not the kids!

Make sure to pick a destination that you and your spouse or friends are going to enjoy. Kids are easy to please and will be just as happy building sandcastles on a small scenic beach as they will be on a $2000+ trip to disneyland. Children are often happiest when their parents are happy too, pick somewhere that’s good fit for the grownups before giving into the whim of the kids.

 

Best wishes,
The Vipon Team.

 



5-Step Guide to Reduce Your Home Energy Spending in 2019

 

Reducing your home energy costs isn’t as complicated as you might think, huge savings can be accomplished from simple changes you can easily start making yourself, there’s really no reason not to start today!


Start reducing your energy cost today to see a huge impact on your yearly spending and do your part towards reducing your impact on the planet.

 

 

  • Heating & Cooling.

 

The #1 culprit for excess spending around the house has always been heating & cooling.

  • Air conditioning and heating systems are expensive to run and care should always be taken not to waste them.
  • Ceiling fans can be used as a cheap alternative to AC, circulating air will keep your home fresh and cool without the high costs air conditioning brings.
  • Convection powered heating fans can be used with traditional hot stoves and open fires to circulate warm air effectively around the home.
  • Thick ‘blackout’ curtains can be used to insulate your houses windows, trap heat during the winter & cool air during the summer.
  • Programmable thermostats can be used to keep the temperature in your home regulated reducing costs over time.

 

  • Long live the LED, incandescent is dead.

 

If you are still using regular incandescent lighting in 2019 then this is for you.

  • LED lighting uses on average 90% less energy than traditional incandescent lighting.
  • LED lighting experiences less malfunctions, requires less replacement, and has a longer average lifespan per product.
  • LED lighting lasts on average 10x longer than it’s incandescent brother.

 

 

  • Insulate Everything!

 

Households can lose up to a third of their total heat through badly insulated window frames, roofs, and doors.

  • Talk to your local contractor to find out more about how you can start weather proofing and insulating your house.
  • Simple changes usually include insulating window edges with caulk.
  • Double pane glass is an amazing insulator and will go away towards reducing leaks.
  • Doors & windows can be lined with draft protectors to create a tight seal and prevent leaks.

 

  • Conservative Kitchen Cooking is Key.

 

That sure is a mouthful to say! Take a bite out of your energy spending by changing the way you cook and use your kitchen.

  • Convection over conventional. Studies show that convection ovens use up to 20% less energy when compared to conventional ovens that do not circulate their air.
  • Reheat in the microwave, although we don’t recommend using it for every meal your microwave uses 80% less energy than your conventional oven and is perfect for reheating food, soups, and leftovers.
  • Pressure cookers and crock pots are your friends. Covered pressurised cooking reduces the energy required and tastes delicious! There are thousands of easy recipes available online.

 

 

  • Take advantage of new low-flow toilet technology.

 

Advances in toilet technology have led to some fantastic opportunities to save on energy spending.

  • Low-flow showerheads & rain style showers use significantly less water compared to bathing and traditional showers.
  • Dual-flush toilets allow the user to select a heavy or light flush depending on the ‘package’.
  • Low-flow toilets use up to 50% less water than traditional toilets making them the biggest opportunity to save on water in the household. They work by using pressurized flushing systems or powerful vacuum chambers.

 

 

Alright everyone, that wraps up our top tips for energy saving around the home in 2019. We hope you continue to have a fantastic frugal year. And don’t forget to check out some of our amazing Amazon deals while you are here at VIPON !

The Three Rules of Pet Saving


We love our furry four-legged friends here at Vipon, but they sure are expensive! Our office doggo GoGo is constantly barking for new treats and toys, even after his long walks around the city. With thousands of pet products and fads on offer, it can be hard to decide what’s necessary spending and what isn’t so we’ve put together our short guide on our essential pet spending tips and tricks.

Here’s our guide to smart pet spending. Lets keep our four-legged friends as happy as our wallets will be after seeing these incredible saving opportunities.

 

Rule #1 – Don’t Follow The Herd.


Saving is a state of mind You can’t jump on every pet fad and trend without thinking how it will affect you wallet. We are looking at you expensive geometric hairstyles!

 

Nutritional fads such as grain free food or 100% meat diets may seem attractive but will create additional costs you want to avoid. Before starting your pet on any diet you should do you research and contact your veterinarian to ensure the safety of your pet.

 

Grooming trends such as ‘pawdicure’ and fur-dying are also probably worth skipping, these expensive procedures, while looking great, are often not worth the cost and in the worst case scenario can damage your pet’s health. We recommend steering clear of this garish animal fashion altogether, and sticking to relaxing home grooming.

 

Rule #2 – Spend Smarter On Food.

 

Finding, Feeding, Preparing  – We know you guys are already adept online shoppers, so when buying pet food make sure to check out your favourite online retailers and stores. Amazon is a fantastic place to buy bulk pet food for cheap prices and you already know you can find some fantastic discounts here with Vipon.

Remember to always buy in bulk! Pet food is made to last for months, maybe even years. Dry food can have an especially long lifetime.

 

Compare Serving Sizes – Often high-quality pet food brands will require a much smaller serving size due to the fact that they contain more of the nutrients and fuel your pet needs. In addition to this, overfeeding your pet is dangerous and can be extremely detrimental to their long term health. Make sure you check nutritional values or you’ll end up with a Tubby Tom Cat or a Chubby Chihuahua.

 

Rule #3 – Avoid The Vet!

 

Know When To Go – We aren’t saying don’t go to the vet if your pet’s sick! Of course if your pet has a medical condition seeking professional assistance should be the first thing on your mind. However, when it comes to buying treats, food, toys and even medication you can potentially save thousands of dollars a year shopping outside your vet’s office.

 

Make Your Own Toys – There are thousands of resources available online for cunning crafty types to make their own pet toys and games. Take advantage of this wealth of resources and information by making your own fun and saving a few dollars at the same time.

 

Make Your Own Treats – The same as the toys, a quick search online reveals too many diy pet treat recipes and guides to count! If you prefer the kitchen over the workshop then this might be the more attractive choice to you.

 

BONUS RULE #4

 

Brush Their Teeth!!! –  Looking back on GoGo’s pet expenses over the years nothing has cost us more than his teeth! Expensive vet appointments, operations, medication, follow-ups and so much more – what a headache! – If you only pay attention to one tip in this whole article then let it be this. Brush your pet’s teeth, pay attention to their health, and groom them to enjoy a happy life time together.

 

 

We hope you and all your animal buddies are having a fantastic time and can learn to save together thanks to these helpful pet saving tips and tricks.

 

Much love,
The Vipon Team.



Love shouldn’t cost a thing, save more on valentines

 

When we think of Valentine’s Day we think of chocolates, expensive dinners, wine, flowers, and giant soft toys – it’s no surprise that the average American will spend an average of $140 on their partner every year!

We don’t think love should be based on how much you spend, if you are looking for ways to cut costs in this New Year then here’s our guide to having a fun and romantic valentines day without blowing your budget.

 

 

Here are our top 5 ideas for Valentine’s savings. Keep the fire alive in your relationship and the balance healthy in your bank account.

 

  • Skip it!

Although this might not be the answer you are looking for, a lot can be said about rescheduling your celebration of love. Candy and similar Valentine’s Day items are likely to see huge discounts after the date. Take the day off and set a date in the future to take advantage of all that cheap candy and chocolate.

 

  • Home cooking.

Instead of shelling out for the usual restaurant experience and being rolled by expensive “holiday special” menus why not find an interesting recipe you both would love to cook together. Time spent in the kitchen together can reinforce relationships, build trust, and you might even get an edible meal from it.

 

 

  • Home spa.

This idea involves stocking up on some relatively cheap facial scrubs and masks and pampering the night away. Share stories treat each other to foot rubs, oil treatments, and back massages and you will be seeing the romance in no time at all. There are many recipes for homemade scrubs and treatments available online.

 

  • DIY present.

Show your love with a custom handmade gift – it can be anything from a painting to a coupon book, or even an old school mixtape (maybe a Soundcloud mix?). You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to show someone you love them, just some well-spent time and effort will go a long way to showing how much you care.

 

 

  • Hunt for coupons.

Start preparing early and search sites for activity coupons and giveaways – if you are looking for gift coupons then there is no better place than Vipon, but, there are also hundreds of sites out there that offer discounts on relaxing day spa’s, couples activities, and more.

 

 

Whatever you choose to do this Valentine’s Day, we hope you do it with love in your heart. Have an amazing day, and if you haven’t found someone to share it with yet, don’t worry, you still have plenty of time!

Budgeting and New Year’s Resolutions

 

— New Year’s resolutions are a fantastic way to begin addressing your finances and start saving. Let’s make 2019 a year of financial stability, set solid goals and improve our quality of life together. —

 

 

We are all used to making New Year’s resolutions, no more junk food, quit smoking, exercise more – sometimes we keep them, sometimes we don’t – This year we want to help you make a resolution – and keep it – that will affect all aspects of your life in a positive way.

 

Good budgeting and financial restraint reach much further into our lives than just our wallet. It gives us a sense of security for the future, reduces anxiety, and develops logical and organized thinking.

 

Make sure you go into 2019 with the right mindset for financial freedom and peace of mind.

 

Split Up That Christmas Bonus

 

  • Often we receive relatively large sums of money around Christmas time, from presents to bonuses, and gifts. We like to use the rule of thirds to split up these amounts and make sure we don’t splurge it all on eggnog in one night.

 

  • The rule goes as follows, one-third goes to past debts, one-third goes to treating yourself in the present, and one-third goes into saving for the future. Just think of ‘A Christmas Carol’s’ three ghosts and you won’t have any trouble remembering.

 

Ditch The Credit Cards

 

  • Credit cards are a recipe for disaster, they offer quick and easy purchases with no immediate negative impact on your finances. It’s easy to rack up hundreds of dollars of debt if you don’t keep an eye on those credit balances and find yourself spiraling out of control.

 

  • We recommend keeping one hidden at the bottom of your darkest deepest sock drawer and using it only for real emergencies. Don’t spend what you don’t have! Carrying cash only will reduce impulse purchases and force you to budget your weekly walking-around money.

 

Stick To A Budget

 

  • Budgeting doesn’t mean creating pages and pages of fancy bar graphs and charts. You can make a good start by writing down your monthly expected spendings on everyday items such as food and household supplies and working out an amount to save month-on-month.

 

  • There are thousands of Apps available to help you budget and plan your savings, spend a night downloading them and finding out which ones suit your lifestyle. Even a small effort made towards planning future spending and savings will make you more mindful of your spending.

 

 

Put Together An Emergency Fund

 

  • Surprise expenses always come at the worst times. Whether it’s a car repair, medical bills, or god forbid losing your job we want to be ready for these surprise spendings without it affecting our monthly budget.

 

  • A good rule of thumb is to add up your monthly spendings – which we should have already put together in our budget – and multiply that number by three. This money will assure we can get through rough months without worrying about losing our basic conveniences.

 

Cook More, Takeout Less

 

  • Takeouts may be yummy but those expenses add up fast. The average American eats an average of 4.2 commercially prepared meals per week, that’s a whopping 18.2 meals per month for a total average of $232/month!

 

  • Cooking is a lifelong skill that is rewarding to learn and share with your loved ones. You can impress potential partners, treat your family, or just prepare wholesome comfort food for yourself when you’re feeling down. Save more and develop a skill that will prove it’’s worth time and time again.

 

Generate Some Side Income

 

  • Developing extra income is a fantastic way to spend your spare time and boost your monthly earnings. Even an extra $100-$200 a month can go great lengths in helping pay rent, groceries or paying off past debts.

 

  • Find a profitable skill that you can work on in your spare time – bonus points if it’s a creative skill – There’s nothing more rewarding than developing and mastering your own skills while also bolstering your financial situation.

 

 

Don’t Forget To Always Check Vipon

 

  • As always there are hundreds of thousands of discount coupons available on Vipon.com, make sure to always check for any purchases here before buying them at full price.

 

  • Saving even a little slowly adds up and you will quickly see the effects in your monthly budgets and savings.

 

New Year’s Resolutions can be hard to keep, but let’s keep these ones together and build a solid financial future for ourselves and our families.

 

We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

 

Much Love,

The Vipon Team

Haunted Halloween Deals & Spooky Savings

Who doesn’t love Halloween – is there any other night where getting dressed up in your whackiest and most imaginative outfits and stuffing your face with sugary snacks is ok? Whether you are a kid or an adult there is something really fun about letting go for a night and experiencing some spooky make-believe.


Halloween can be expensive, however, American families are expected to spend on average up to $100 this Halloween. That’s not cheap! One of the biggest problems is that people really don’t budget well, unlike Christmas, and birthday parties people are unlikely to have prepared for Halloween and extra costs can come unexpectedly.

So we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite ways to save money this Halloween so hopefully, your bank statement won’t be the scariest thing you see this fall.

1. Shop on Vipon
– Who can resist a shameless self-plug? – Vipon is full of fantastic Halloween deals right now. Grab them quick before they all run out. We have DIY supplies, Costumes, and much much more! Our discount prices ensure you get the best investment for your money.

2. Buy your candy early
In the run-up to Halloween, many stores will ramp up candy prices, don’t get taken advantage of, make sure you are prepared well in advance. See number 5 if its already too late!

3. DIY Decorations
Half the fun of Halloween is the crafts and activities that come along with it. Pick up some pumpkins and spend the day seeing who can carve out the spookiest designs, or make some scary home costumes from old clothes and items from around the house.

4. Swap with friends
If you have a few old Halloween costumes lying around from last year then you can save money by swapping with your friends. No need to buy a brand new costume.

5. Use candy alternatives
If you are too late to get your candy before the Halloween price hike then you might want to consider some candy alternatives. Rolls of stickers or inexpensive toys can make for a more economical choice. Kids get loads of candy and snacks over Halloween, this is your chance to stand out from the crowd.

6. If you are going to buy decorations then invest in the future
The temptation of cheap decorations is alluring now, but in the long run, buying their more expensive counterparts will save you money. If you must buy decorations then at least buy them to last. With the right storage and care, they could be used indefinitely.

7. Search for local community activities
If you don’t have enough room to host your own Halloween party then consider looking to see if there are any events being held in the local area. This can be a great way to meet new people for you, your friends, and family. Try searching on Facebook or in your local newspaper.

8. Enjoy yourself
No matter whether you are out with friends or family, make sure to take a million pictures and make some awesome memories, Halloween is one of the funniest holidays of the year, but, it doesn’t have to be expensive!
We hope you all have an extra spooky Halloween this year and loads of fun.

12 Secrets of Super Supermarket Savings

“Why do I always spend so much at the supermarket?” This question is asked countless times by countless others every day.

No matter how hard you try it seems like you’re always just a teeny bit over budget. Don’t worry Vipon is here to help you save money offline as well!

We have put together a list of some of our favorite hint & tips to help you save more on your weekly shop.

1. Never go food shopping when you are hungry. When we are hungry our mood changes, we make bad decisions, and we end up with a shopping basket full of chocolate cookies.

2. If there is a chance to buy in bulk then take it! Stock up when you see a deal and plan for the future. Having a cellar full of tinned tomatoes might raise an eyebrow from some of your friends but at least you’re prepared for anything!

3. Watch use-by dates carefully and freeze food that will be going out of date. The more you can reduce your food wastage the more you will save.

4. Shop around! Don’t just trust that your local Costco has the best deals, get out there and start comparing. Big chains are often very competitive with their pricing and you will definitely find some great deals.

5. Create a list of the top 20 things you buy every week and compare prices in your local stores. Smaller independent stores may be willing to adjust prices in order to keep your business.

6. Search for easy to cook and freeze recipes. Meal prepping can save you a huge amount of money in the long run.

7. Find a local butcher and try to buy non-pre-packaged meat. It’s often cheaper and better quality than its supermarket cousin.

8. Find out when the veggies you like are in season. Vegetables will often be placed on sale or cheaper when they are plentiful.
