Even when you WIN BIG….
“Moving is expensive. Beyond figuring out what you’re going to pack all your stuff in and whether or not you’re springing for movers or pizza and beer for your pals, moving to a new place always ends up costing more than you expect when it comes to basic house things.
Your new place may need more curtains than the last, or now that you’re upgrading from a studio apartment to a 1-bedroom you need things like a sofa or a dining room table.
There’s an easy way to WIN BIG and get a discount on a lot of that stuff: Change your address with the post office. As Travel + Leisure noted this week, the simple act of doing so often earns you a ton of money-saving deals.
For instance, my boyfriend and I moved to a new apartment last October. While I had my old apartment until the end of the month, I went ahead and changed my mailing address and started forwarding my mail to the new apartment mid-month when it was officially ours.
On a basic level, this gave me a little peace of mind when it came to my mail. For two weeks I was getting all the mail that somehow didn’t get forwarded to our new apartment that let’s face it, would probably have been tossed by the next tenant.
The second you change your address online you also get digital coupons, and they’re pretty awesome.
We received 20% off coupons for Bed Bath & Beyond, Lowes, and every single Blue Apron-like meal service on the planet. We also ended up with a bunch of Whole Foods coupons (It’s been a while, but I seem to remember $15 off a $50 purchase) as well as free provisions from Whole Foods like olive oil and reusable bags—Whole Foods even gave us another coupon for a free $10 item to “break in our new kitchen” when we used the coupons they sent us in the mail. There were also huge discounts on mattresses and furniture from a variety of different places ranging from IKEA to Crate and Barrel, a lot which came in the mail as “Welcome to the Neighborhood” deals.
Since we changed our address before the official move rather than after we were able to take advantage of some of those deals that we otherwise might not have. A coupon for a discount on a mattress is great, but if you have one delivered before the coupon comes it’s kind of useless.
The two-week buffer was perfect, both for collecting stray mail and getting coupons, and it made the move a lot cheaper than if we ended up buying all that stuff full price.”
