OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Whether it's inspired by the pandemic or trying to make ends meet while holiday shopping, many of us are looking for ways to save money.

There are ways you can keep using the products you like without paying big name prices. A lot of brands that you can find at department stores you can also find at your local drug store or convenience store for less money.

Brands like L’Oreal, Clinique and Lancome sell items at both places. As many pound the pavement looking for that great deal, others spend time online looking to the best websites and coupons.

With some products you might have to do a bit of research, but the deals can be worth it and most importantly, found for a fraction of the cost.

"A lot of these big beauty brands own over the counter and more 'cosmeceuticals' that are sold at department stores. If you know the parent company you can actually find something that is more in your price point over the counter quite often. They will share the same ingredients because they share a patent and secrets for beauty under the same umbrella,” said Dendy Engelman, Licensed Dermatologist with RxSaver.

Another way to save some cash is to visit this website. If you use the app you can save up to 50% off some of those prescriptions.
