Save money on deals and give back on Giving Tuesday

November 27 is is Giving Tuesday so here are some ways you can give back while checking off items on your holiday shopping list.

Stores are actually jumping on the Giving Tuesday bandwagon, so when you buy something from them, they’ll donate a portion of the proceeds to a charity.

For example, the company Toms Shoes. With each pair of shoes you buy, they donate another pair to someone in need.

S’well aluminum water bottles are helping provide clean water to communities in need.

And Warby Parker glasses will donate a pair of glasses for each one purchased.

The money savings experts at RetailMeNot say the trend is so big you can probably find a company that gives back to something near and dear to you.

Sara Skirboll with RetailMeNot says, “Companies are paying attention to those in need, developing nations in need, women who are trying to start their businesses, all sorts of different organizations. So a quick google search and you’ll not only be able to help these companies donate on your behalf, but you’re also doing your part.”

Yes, it’s also Travel Deal Tuesday.

So if you’re still looking a ticket to get you home for the holidays you may want to shop around Tuesday. But be sure to read the fine print to avoid hidden costs like extra charges for baggage.
