How To Score Tweet Deals Through Twitter

Posted on 04/29/2009

It’s not just for telling the world what you ate for lunch. Twitter is a tool for saving money, too. Don’t believe me? Here are some bargain hunters, deal hounds, and freebie fanatics you should be following.

@Bargainist - Of course we can’t help but toot our own horn. After all, The Bargainist is an extremely popular source for deals, coupons and freebies. Now you can have instant updates on the best bargains around from our fab team. For tech-related deals follow our hot brother, @bensbarg. Plus, during the week of April 27, each day we’ll be giving away an amazing item– we’re talking a pearl necklace, GPS, camera and more. But you can only win if you follow @Bargainist. One lucky winner will receive the good news through a Direct Message and in order to claim the gift they’ve got to DM us back within three hours.

@FreebieTweet - Want free stuff, but worried signing up for it may be a scam? Check out @FreebieTweet and her coordinating website, She checks all freebies out before posting them and only passes along the best ones.
