Who doesn’t love getting a good deal?
As Americans, big retailers have trained us to expect deals even if we do not necessarily bargain hunt.
We are bombarded with deals online, coupon websites, special deals, online coupons in our email, and limited-time offers all the time.
Just about everyone wants to save money (we’d like to know your secret if you don’t) while they’re shopping in a brick-and-mortar store or online. Stick around for some tips for finding the best deals on the world wide web!
Find Free Shipping Codes or Store Pick Up Options
Do you feel like you got a good deal but then shipping adds too much on top of it? Do an internet search for “free shipping” deals.
There are a lot of sites devoted to offering deals online. If the store from which you are purchasing items has a free shipping code, you will find it through one of these sites.
Many retailers have free shipping with a minimum purchase as well as a “Buy online, pick up in-store” option.
Use Price Tracking Tools
If you are not in any hurry for certain items you want to purchase, make use of price-tracking tools. Sign up for notifications and they’ll let you know when the item you want has a price drop.
Follow Stores and Brands on Social Media
Following your favorite stores or brands on social media allows you to always be updated on any deals they are promoting. Instead of having your inbox slammed with emails from retailers, you can casually see their offers while scrolling through your social media accounts.
Shop Through Cash Back Apps
It seems that everyone from your bank to your credit cards have shopping cash back reward programs. These apps allow you to shop the places you usually do but through their site.
You’ll get a certain amount of cash back from each store and the app will give you any discounts or deals the retailer is offering.
Use the Chat Option
This is one of those things that may not have occured to you. Use the chat box to speak to a customer service representative. Use the opportunity to ask for a discount code or a free shipping code. The worst they can say is no.
