Most of us shop with coupons in stores, but, I want to share 5 tips for Coupon Shopping Online.
5 Tips For Coupon Shopping Online!
Many stores have coupon codes we can use and even stack to get better deals. I always make sure to check the clearance section online and switch the view to Low to High. Most online stores have the view set High to Low or New Items and those are going to be more expensive.
So, here are 5 tips to shopping and saving money online:
1. Always, Always use a Rebate Site when shopping online
Why would you pay more than necessary? With a rebate site they give you discounts, coupon codes AND a rebate! Can’t beat that!
I LOVE Mr. Rebates! I told y’all about that site a while back and often remind you about using their site. Remember, just for signing up with Mr. Rebates you get $5 in your account FREE to start off and you can cash your account out at just $10! So, you can shop all year and make cash back and use that for Christmas Shopping! It’s a win-win!
2. Be Sure to ALWAYS use a Coupon Code for EVERYTHING you purchase online
You can find coupon codes for everything, and you should NEVER shop online without them! You can get codes to lower the cost of a particular item, or to lower the cost of an entire transaction or for FREE Shipping! Always do an internet search for a coupon code before you make a purchase online.
3. Check to see if a store will allow you to stack coupons
You know what stacking is, we do it all the time at other stores (using more than 1 coupon, or in this case coupon code, on an item or purchase), it applies to online shopping as well. If you find a $10 off $20 code, see if you can find a FREE Shipping code, too and see if they will allow you to “stack” those codes together for an even better deal!
4. If your online purchase is from a store that is nearby, see if you can ship your purchase(s) to the store
Same as the tip above if you purchase something with a code for $10 off $20 and can have your purchase shipped to the store and pick it up yourself – you’ve got FREE shipping, too!
5. Make sure you save the maximum you absolutely can
Say you purchase something for $30 and have a $5 off $30 coupon code – that makes your cost $25. But say there’s another coupon code for $30 off $50 – that would make a $50 purchase just $20, so it makes more sense for you to keep shopping! Get your order up to $50 and use the $30 off $50 – you end up paying less than you would with the other code and getting another $20 worth of merchandise essentially for FREE! So, be smart and think it all through before you hit the purchase button!
