Giving Back: Savings.com Builds Houses with Habitat for Humanity

Yesterday thirty of us took the day off and headed to Lynwood, CA to give a helping hand (make that SIXTY helping hands) to Habitat for Humanity.  Founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity is based on the belief that that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. To date, they've built over 300,000 houses utilizing the principle of "partnership housing" where those in need of housing work side-by-side with volunteers.

In fact, Habitat for Humanity doesn't give houses away, ala Extreme Home Makeover--recipients are required to put in 500 hours of "sweat equity" as well as make interest-free monthly mortgage payments.  We learned a bit about "sweat equity" during our short stint as construction workers as we painted, built soffits (I know--what the @#$% is a soffit?), hung drywall, installed insulation and more.

Last week, a group of us headed to Nashville to attend Blissdom, a blogging conference for "women who find and express their bliss by publishing online." Although the weather was cold (REALLY cold for us weather wimpy Angelenos!) and damp, we remained safe and dry in the cavernous "biodome" setting of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel.

Check out some of the highlights of the conference: Read More »

As we wind down the year, things are really gearing up at Savings.com.  We've been working hard to bring you awesome Black Friday deals, Cyber Monday sales and super hot coupons and promo codes to save you money on your holiday shopping.  The DealPros are furiously finding discounts for hot items like PS3, Wii and Zhu zhu hamsters and Savings Little Helpers are taking your deal queries via Twitter.

In the midst of all this madness, however, we took a brief break to celebrate all we've accomplished in 2009 (the launch of our blog, a major site redesign, Save Up conference, etc.) at our annual holiday party. Read More »

During the holiday season of 2008, plenty of people were looking for deals. In fact, Savings.com saved people almost $4.4M* during the holidays in 2008. The most popular category was electronics and Savings.com's electronics deals saved users over $1.5M.
