The 21st Century has seen online shopping experience a huge boom and you can now buy everything from the latest fashion to gourmet food through the internet. Online shopping is an easy, convenient and cheap way to purchase your goods but there are ways to save even more money. Below is a list of 4 ways to save extra money shopping online:
1. Leave Items In Your Shopping Cart – It might be tempting to buy your product straight away and get it delivered straight to your door but if you can afford to wait for a few days it is definitely worth leaving an item in the shopping basket. The retailer may well get in contact with you and offer a special discount if you buy the item in the shopping cart on that day.
2. Subscribe To Amazon – Amazon has a clever little trick of predicting when you need to re-stock an item you have bought from the site. Subscribing to Amazon will not only ensure that you get useful reminders so you don’t run out of stock, it will usually have the previous item you ordered at a slightly lower price, saving you both time and money.
3. Google The Product – If you have found your product for a good price on the internet it is still worth typing the product name into Google and doing a search. Google will come back with a result of the cheapest prices and there may well be a site selling the product for even less. Just because a site has a big “SALE” sign does not always mean it is the cheapest price on the internet. Always search around before buying the product.
4. Use Discount Codes – This is one of the easiest ways to save money on your online shopping but there are still a lot of people who don’t use discount codes. One of the best ways to know if a site offers discount codes is to look at the checkout to see if there is an “Enter your discount code here” bar. If there is a bar then the chances are the site will have a current discount code available. There are actually coupon code sites that list all the codes for different stores but you will also likely find the code if you type the shop and ‘coupon code’ into Google. If you use Google Chrome then you can also install Honey, which will automatically find codes for a lot of online stores.
