We all want to save money when shopping online, right? It’s best to try using some coupon deals when making online purchases. Here are some more ways to find the best online deals.
Ways to Find the Best Online Deals
Always Shop with a List And Compare Prices
It’s just as important to shop with a list when you’re shopping online as it is when you’re shopping in a brick and mortar store. If you don’t have a list, you may have a tendency to overspend.
I’m always telling my middle daughter that she could be a personal shopper because she always finds the best deals. Thankfully, she shares them with me.
Sign up for email lists
You’ll usually be the first to know about sales, deals, and discounts. If you don’t want tons of emails to sort through, open an email account just for deals and steals.
Shop Online Stores With Awesome Return Policies
Don’t get stuck with a product because you didn’t check the return policy. A few years ago I ordered a dress online from a “new to me” site. For some reason, I didn’t check the location or the return policy. When I finally received a hideous dress that looked nothing like the one I ordered, I was so mad at myself. When I read the fine print return policy, I realized they had a 12-hour return policy and I had missed it. I tried to contact them, to no avail. Lesson learned.
Use Online Subscription Services
Amazon Prime is a subscription service that I use often. My UPS man would agree. It’s so convenient, especially when I’m Christmas shopping and can’t deal with the crowds. Who doesn’t love two-day shipping?
Abandon Your Online Shopping Cart
Add the items you want to purchase to your cart and then close the browser window and walk away – for a day or two. You can expect a coupon or promo to appear in your inbox to spur you on to make the purchase. This may not work on every online store, but I’ve done it several times and it worked like a charm.
Refer a Friend
Many online sites have a referral program. If I can save money by referring my friends, count me in. I’ve saved some serious cash over the years, especially with a monthly subscription service I love.
