Keywords: shopping discounts, free shipping, bargain, deal-finding, online discounts, promo code, promo codes
OK all you bargain hunters out there, here’s a pop quiz for you: As the economy keeps spiraling downward, is your arsenal of deal-finding skills strengthening? Even if you pride yourself on snagging up all the good buys on a daily basis, do you — YES, even you — occasionally drop the ball?
It’s something that can happen to the savviest of money managers, especially during busy or stressful times. It can particularly be a lot easier to forget to use paper coupons or electronic coupon codes — or to fail to bother tracking them down in the first place because it seems like too much of a hassle.
With so many different ways to save money with coupons, it makes a lot of sense to take advantage of them, especially in economic hardships like these.
The tips below can help you save more of your hard-earned money in your wallet:
STAY ON THE BALL WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR ONLINE DISCOUNTS: When making purchases, stay on the lookout for areas where you can enter a promotional code, discount code, or “coupon.” If you spot such an option, that means a coupon code almost certainly exists, which can help you save on the purchase you’re about to make. Use the Promo Code benefit to help get access to these codes!
LOOK FOR FREE SHIPPING: The best coupons in the world may not be able to offset those annoying shipping charges. The websites mentioned in #4 can direct you to free shipping deals in some cases. It never hurts to take a few minutes to look around for free shipping before submitting that online order.
DON’T OVERLOOK THE CLEARANCE AND SALE SECTION: Visit the websites of your favorite retailers and look for online-only sales. Click on any link that says “sale,” “new markdowns” or “final clearance.” It’s not uncommon to spot those items once costing $100 or more, lurking in final clearance sections for $19.99 or even $9.99.
CAREFULLY REVIEW THAT CHECKOUT SCREEN: Especially if you’re using a coupon code, be sure the discount has been applied CORRECTLY before you say “yes” to your order!
