  • Surprisingly enough, I do follow All You, and I do like the coupons that are available in their actual magazine. They have printable coupons on their actual website, and their Twitter account often announces great coupons and deals. I’d have to recommend All You to anyone that doesn’t know about them already.

    • I have also seen a lot these coupons on there website. Also it good when your looking through twitter to get some good deals. I would recommend these sites to anyone out there looking for a great deal.

  • One of the things that I like the most about Twitter is the fact that you can see so much at your fingertips, meaning that you have a lot of hints and tips available to you. I already follow some of the accounts that are suggested here, and in the past I have certainly got a lot out of it. Saving money is very important to me, and I have to admit that it is sort of a hobby for me as well, so following these accounts on Twitter is great for me as it makes things very easy.

  • When I started reading this I initially thought that it would be a waste of time because I’m a man and I was so sure that all the Twitter accounts you were going to list would be aimed at women. I must hold my hands up and say I was VERY wrong!

    While some are aimed at women there were a few that I have eagerly followed and can’t wait to see what they offer to help me save a few more bucks a month. 🙂

  • Thanks for this great list. I have heard of some these and am already following those blogs. It is great to know though that is for sure. I am going to probably sign into Twitter and start following all of these ASAP. 🙂

  • These twitter accounts are a gold mine for coupons, seriously. I think I got Twitter myself just so I could follow accounts like these and get discounts, as well as money saving tips.

  • I’ve followed most of them, it looks as if they post lots of great deals and information on how to save money. I love seeing coupons come across my twittersphere, and I’m looking forward to seeing the $5 recipes, as well!
