Three Of The Best Online Shopping Tips And Tricks To Save Money

Tip #1 – Has something you bought at full price just gone on sale or have a killer coupon? Ask for a refund of the difference. Many stores will honor coupons even after you have purchased the item. I saw this the other day at Bed Bath & Beyond. I forgot to bring my coupon in with me, but they will honor it afterwards by just returning to the store with your coupon and receipt.

Tip #2 – Don’t forget about price matching! Price matching can be a great way to save money with coupons, and it is something that we often forget to ask about while in a store. Find out in the podcast exactly how Scott does his own price matching combined with a little showrooming! Scott told me that he uses StellaService.com to find out a store’s policies. This is a great resource that will let you review a store’s shipping or return policies before you make a purchase.

Tip #3 – If you are looking for a great deal, use your shopping cart as a weapon. If you throw items in your online shopping cart and then abandon it, you will often get a follow up email from the website. A lot of times you’ll get a nice coupon along with the email reminder to finish your purchase. That’s a great deal and a great way to save a ton of money using coupons not even available to the public!

Don’t forget to check out next week’s podcast on Monday, November 25th to find out several other great online shopping tips and tricks that you can use. There were a lot more than Scott shared with me such as how he saved hundreds of dollars on new furniture for his office. I had honestly never heard of this method of finding the best coupons.

I ALWAYS check for a coupons before I buy online and about 50% of the time, I find one for at least free shipping.

Nice tips! With Black Friday and Cyber Monday being just around the corner, I definitely want to prepare. As an avid bargain shopper, I usually browse sites such as Ebay, Amazon, and Zappos to find the best bargains.
