Shopping Online? Who isn’t? Here’s How I’m Saving $ This Season

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by SimplyCodes, a new company with a great team I’ve been working with for a few weeks testing out their product. I’m excited to tell you more about it! As always, thank you for supporting the brands that support Rouge18. 

I don’t know about you, but after a year and change of staying in, I’m indulging in… a lot of retail therapy. Okay, more than a lot. Okay, a strange amount. But there’s been a lot going on that needed to be addressed. From home accessories for my new apartment to jeans that aren’t skinny (I hear you, Gen Z, ok?) to a few more work-from-home outfits, there’s been a need for a refresh. And even before the pandemic, I’ve always been an online shopper versus in-store. Waiting in lines, dealing with dressing rooms. Why bother when I can get what I need with a click of a button? 

I feel better about my spending habits of late thanks to SimplyCodes, a coupon browser extension for desktop. You can install it on a range of browsers—Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari—and most exciting for me, it’s now available for iPhone on iOS Safari. I’ll never get caught in an Instagram shopping spiral and have to bust out my laptop again. I can’t tell you how key it is to also be able to find those codes on the go and not have to rely solely on my home computer for those last-minute shopping impulses. 

About SimplyCodes

SimplyCodes was designed to fix the frustrations people have with other coupon extensions on the market. You know, the usual: Things like the codes never work, they pop up too much, they don’t cover enough stores, and it’s unclear what they’re tracking.

Verified Promo Codes

Simply put? SimplyCodes covers more stores. SimplyCodes has the largest library of verified promo codes of any extension out there (3 million plus and counting) and covers more stores (78,000+). Emphasis on the verified. 

Verified Promo Codes… That Work

Another thing I like about it? You don’t have to sift through countless inactive codes. In fact, it also only pops up when it believes it has a code that will work. SimplyCodes has very strict and transparent privacy measures with no tracking or collecting any data.

About SimplyCodes’ Parent Company

SimplyCodes is created by, a small tech company of just 7 people, located in Los Angeles. is also the maker of, which is a community-driven reviews and consumer information platform;, a crowdsourced deals website; and soon, an influencer marketplace platform. I’m intrigued by the latter. 

SimplyCodes for Home-Decor Scores

I used SimplyCodes when I purchased a floor mirror for my living room from One Kings Lane. It’s called the Kristen Floor Mirror and I was able to get it for 15% off when I used a code. In the sage words of The Dude of The Big Lebowski fame about his rug, it really ties the room together. It visually makes the room look bigger and adds an elevated elegance to the ambiance. 

SimplyCodes For Upgrading My Winter Footwear Concept 

I used SimplyCodes on my phone earlier this week when I purchased these beyond-chic No.6 Pull On Shearling Mid Heel Boots in black. I can’t wait for them to arrive. They look practically criminally comfortable, yet give me the height I need at 5’5”, they work well with a multitude of pants looks and are sophisticated enough to wear with dresses in a polar vortex that will no doubt show up soon. These boots also come in a few other colorways and multiple heel heights. Side note: Can anyone else not reintroduce 3+ inch heels back into their repertoire? It’s a no from me, dog. I need to bring a literal bushel of pumps over to Crossroads in Chelsea to sell. That ship has sailed, friends. Anyway, back to my boots, which are wonderfully walkable thanks to a platform heel height of 2.7”. SimplyCodes helped me get 15% off when I used the ShopBop app. (One quick note: You have to be a first-time app user of their app in order to take advantage of the code. I tried to make another purchase later and was brutally rebuffed, in the words of the sage Cher Horowitz of Clueless fame). 

Make Sure You’re Getting Those Black Friday Deals 

From Black Friday to Cyber Monday to Small Business Saturday to Giving Tuesday, there are so many opportunities to save. Whether you’re making a big purchase like a new mattress or investing in a life-changing pillow, transitioning your skincare stash to richer, more hydrated formulas for winter, or simply doing your holiday shopping for friends and family, you want to take advantage of codes that can wildly discount every purchase you make this season. 

Setting Up SimplyCodes On Your Mobile or Computer 

Set-up for SimplyCodes is simple. You can add the extension to your browser on your desktop, laptop or phone and your codes will pop up when available—and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how often they’re available.
