Money in a Minute: Check your receipts for extra savings

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Before you throw out your receipt, make sure you're not throwing out extra savings, too.

A very easy way to save money is to check the back of your receipt.  Sounds simple, right?  People always forget that a lot of savings are often printed out on the back of their grocery receipts.  People are so quick to throw it out - but we found big savings on them.  We found a BOGO deal, 15-percent off a restaurant and much more.

These tend to be ads from local businesses.  We see a lot of local restaurants and services, like oil changes and tanning packages.

You might not need these – but then again, you just might!  It's just one other way for easy savings.
