5 Places to Score Money Saving Tips on Social Media

9. Saving Money

You don’t have to undertake the journey to save alone. Saving Money encourages members to add friends and family who support building savings, getting out of debt and improving their finances.

Save Money With Twitter

Twitter communities, hidden in the sidebar menu some months back, never really caught on. But the platform is still a great way to keep tabs on or get support from a business. In fact, if you’re having trouble getting a customer service issue resolved, tweeting at a company or dropping into direct messages is still an effective way to get a resolution.

You can also follow individual brands or popular discount or deal accounts to get early access to sales and other money-saving alerts.

Find the Best Money-Saving Tips on Instagram

Instagram doesn’t have groups, but it has harnessed the power of the hashtag. If you have an Instagram account, you can use the pound sign (#), followed by keywords, to scout out deals. Try “coupon” or “promo” hashtags but heed some social media savvy advice and steer clear of the comments.

There’s also more than one way to harness social media for profit. Becoming an influencer can gain access to sponsors that promote your content and provide free products. And the power of micro-influencers proves that follower count doesn’t matter as much as expertise in a particular niche.

Take on TikTok’s Money-Saving Challenges

Young people love TikTok, but it’s not always the best place to grab good financial advice. However, TikTok can keep you on track if you’re looking for motivation to try a money-saving challenge (think the weird and somewhat effective viral 100 envelopes hack).

Learn Money-Saving Hacks on YouTube

From an early age, Gen Z preferred this video-based social media platform for a reason. YouTube can be a highly educational space, especially for those looking to lean into a frugal lifestyle or expand a repertoire of money-making DIY skills.

Other Ways to Start Saving Money With Social Media Sites

In addition to joining coupon groups and scouting out sales and discounts, social media can be your financial superpower if you know how to use it correctly.

Follow Brands You Shop

While random discounts might incentivize you to try something new, scoring deals on things you actually buy for your family is the real holy grail. Following brands you like and often buy on social media could help you win a giveaway or access to an exclusive sale.

Don’t Forget About Facebook Marketplace

Facebook is one of the few social media companies with a resale platform built into the app. Facebook Marketplace makes selling and buying secondhand stuff easier (and potentially safer) than some platforms.

Join a Buy Nothing Group

Rack up serious savings by joining the ultimate frugality find. Buy nothing groups create a marketplace of waste not, want not by focusing on exchanging instead of purchasing goods. You can find one near you on Facebook, NextDoor or other websites.

Meet Up With Other Money Savers

Pull up a chair online and drop in to chat with other money-saving gurus in Meetup’s groups. These online hubs are clustered by locale, so they’re also great spots to find budget travel tips.
