Inside Deals (Dec 5th, 2018)

1. Our first life hack comes from reader Paul Corrado, who recommends using No Doz instead of more expensive caffeinated beverages such as coffee and energy drinks. One pill of No-Doz contains a whopping 200 mg of caffeine or one or two cups of coffee. Yet unlike energy drinks and coffees that can cost between $2-3 each, one No Doz pill costs about $0.13 cents or about $7.47 for a pack of 60 from Walmart. If you pop two pills a day, over a course of one year, that means you'd be spending just $90 on your caffeine fix. That could save you roughly $1,900 on daily coffees or energy drinks!

For those annoyingly self-disciplined wise folks who always make coffee at home, you'll still be saving money and time. After all, while it seems like it would just take a few minutes to make coffee, it takes years when it's the wee hours of the morning and it's freezing outside. Who among us has not pressed snooze a billion times before begrudgingly turning on the coffee machine and finally waking up?? With a caffeine pill like No-Doz on your bedside table, however, you can save yourself a few extra minutes you can use to get a head start on the day, but more likely just sleep in. Win-win either way.

Do you have a life hack to save money? Send it in with your name and social media handles (if you want) to deals@Inside.com for a chance to be featured. We're also launching a few next sections over the next few weeks we need your help with, which you can read about below.

Even if a product is not usually ever on sale, if they're so durable or powerful enough to make a great investment, I can feature these here as deals as well.
  • "Cheap Tricks": I actually launched this feature a while back so many of you already have read this section before. Here I'll feature suggestions and tips on how to save money, not by spending, but by being frugal. Send us your recommendations and I can feature you here!

4. As a part of its nationwide holiday sale, Southwest Airlines is selling flights to various American cities nationwide for as low as $49. You can, for example, fly from San Francisco to Las Vegas for $51 one-way. While other airlines offer similar prices, this is an unusual discount for the normally expensive carrier and, depending upon your travel habits, can be a great one. That's because Southwest, for example, allows you to reschedule flights at no extra charge, while also offering some pretty flexible cancelation policies. Also, unlike many airlines, they also allow you to check in two bags for free. This deal will end on December 13, 2018. 

  • Product: Southwest Airline tickets
  • Dates: December 18, 2018 - May 22, 2019. 
  • Deal: Buy tickets for as low as $49
  • How to buy: Purchase from Southwest Airlines by December 13, 2018, and learn more here
