There are many different ways to save money on shopping. There are such options as online comparison sites, survey and product testing, market research, and you can even take such simple steps as using a credit card that provides you with cash back rebates on purchases. Below is a listing of various ways to save money.
Find the codes that many online retailers have in order to get a discount on your products. Just enter the code before you shop online or checkout. A discount will be applied to your order. Some companies may also provide a free product, free shipping, or they may offer all of those and more. A community of people provide these codes to the websites and other shoppers, and there is no cost to use or obtain them. More.
Comparison shop to find the best deal. A large number of websites compare prices from many retailers to find you the best deal. So if one retailer offers a lower price on an item that you are going to buy, then you can easily discover this fact and can just buy your product at that store or website. Examples include Shopping.com and there are several others. Just log on to the website and do your shopping directly from that location. Continue.
There are websites and services that scour the internet looking for the guaranteed lowest price. These services can almost guarantee that you get the best price on any online shopping that you need to do. While it is a form of comparison shopping (see below) one of the main benefits of this program is that it is a more automated system. Read more.
Market research and product companies, including CashCrate, InboxDollars, and TreasureTrooper, offer you cash rebates, free coupons, and savings from numerous retailers. For example, you can save 5%, 10%, or even more on items from national retailers such as Wal-Mart, Magazines.com, Borders, Toys R Us, and dozens of others. You just need to establish an account at one or more of these companies, log on and then shop directly from their website. There is no cost to create an account or to use these services. The companies will also provide members other benefits, including standard coupons, free product testing, and rebates. More.
Use a credit card for your online purchases that provide a 1-5% rebate to get additional savings. For example, if you use the Chase Freedom card you can get a rebate that ranges from 1 to 3%. Discover has a credit card that will provide you a rebate of up to 5% off on your gasoline purchases. So if you spend $100 per year on your gas, you can receive $5 per month, or $60 per year, in cash back rebates from Discover. Those are just a couple examples.
While there may be limits to the amount of the rebate that a customer can receive per month, that amount will usually be set at a high amount. For example, Chase may cap your maximum rebate at a few hundred dollars per month. Continue.
Also, combine one or more of these resources to receive even more savings. For example, you can use an online code to save money on your purchase. Then when you pay for the item, use a credit card that provides a cash rebate. Or take similar approaches to shopping. It is not too difficult to save 10, 15, or 20% or more on your everyday purchases.
