**Please note that some sites are affected by the COVID-19 crisis, and that means longer shipping times or being put on a waiting list.**

The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we live our day to day lives, with more and more consumers opting to stay in, self-quarantine, and socially distance to keep those at risk safe from the virus. That means dining out, going to the mall, and even grocery shopping may have to be forgone in the wake of staying healthy and safe.

But many online retailers are extending help in the form of online coupon codes geared to help consumers stay home, stay safe, and save a little money too.

While you’re staying in, consider these offers to help you save on food, grocery, meal prep and more. Whatever you do and wherever you are, we hope you’re staying safe!
