Everybody loves to save money when we shop online, but some people seem to know all the tricks and others are clueless where to start. Adding a complicated routine of coupon clipping or spending all morning searching for deals is not going to fit into our schedule. Here is your basic primer that will help you save money online the easy way.
Know your options
If you are in the market for a new grill, you might assume that the the best deal is going to be at your local box store. Sure, it’s a great idea to go looking at the selections in store if you have the time. But if you factor in the gas and time it takes to drive to every store, you might find that it is a better value to order online. By doing a quick home and garden category search, you may find that your favorite grill is available with free shipping at Home Depot. When you look a little closer, you may even find that you can get a discount on the product of your choice.
Find Promo codes
At most online stores, you will see a place on the checkout page that asks for a promo code. No one should make an online purchase without doing a quick search to see if the company has a promotional code available. You simply enter the store name at Frugga and click enter to see what promo codes are available.
Never pay shipping
Many smart online shoppers make it a point to never pay shipping. You can almost always find a free shipping code for most online stores.
Here’s a tip: Maybe the online deal is free shipping at $50. If you are planning to spend $40 but shipping is $10, why not add another item to your cart and get over the free shipping threshold? If you are going to pay the $10 for shipping, wouldn’t you rather get another product instead of throw the money away on shipping?
Shopping online is a great way to save money, but you have to be smart. Take the time to look for discounts and coupon codes and you will save money on everything from home products to coffee!
