What can you save on with a promotion site in Thailand? -- The easier question would be what can you not save on with a promotion site in Thailand.

Most of the bigger Thai promotion sites offer savings on thousands of products and thousands of companies.

These include companies like Central World, Sizzler, JMart, Pantip Plaza, MBK, Seacon Square, DTAC, AIS, Nok Air, Air Asia and even restaurants like Blue Corner,The Pizza Company and Black Canyon.

It honestly does not matter where you plan on shopping in Thailand, or where you will go to eat. You will find most of the places you frequent have coupons on a promotion site somewhere online.

How much can you save? -- This depends on the promotion site you use, the time of year you are using it and what you want to buy.

Typical promotions include things like a free pizza at The Pizza Company in Bangkok if you buy a second one. Or 20 percent off the price of specific cameras at stores in Pantip Plaza.

If you want to get new phone service, you can get discount rates with companies like AIS and DTAC. Or, if you want to eat at MK Restaurants or buy donuts at Mister Donut, you can save money on those as well.

Just plan ahead for any shopping trip you make or restaurant visit you go on, and you will save money.
