I love online shopping, compared to store shopping. You can be comfortable, at home, don’t have to spend money on gas, park, fight the crowds, queue, or blame yourself for always picking the slowest cashier. It is all there, in one click. And since you can shop in several stores, you can try to find the best deal for every item, while you wouldn’t go to five supermarkets because one has cheaper eggs and the other one cheaper milk. Here are a few tips to save money with online shopping.
If you want to send a gift to a friend in Canada, shop on Canadian stores, don’t pay for expensive shipping from the US. Most sites have an English translation even though they are not in an English speaking country. Just enter the brand + Spain on Google, and you will be redirected to the Spanish website.
Leave your cart full and check out.
Companies will sometimes send you an email offering a discount if you come back.
Just buy one item.
It applies for websites for example. If you buy a domain, a couple of days later, you will receive an email with a discount on hosting.
Buy a package
On the other hand, if you buy a laptop, the store may be offering the laptop case or extra battery at a discount. Don’t be tempted to buy more than you need, but if you do check out other items.
Get free shipping
There are plenty of sites that offer free shipping. You can also ask the website if they have a live customer chat, just be nice and ask if they would be willing to waive the shipping fee.
Pay with a reward card.
Whether your thing is to earn miles or cash back, pay with your best credit card. Make sure you pay your balance in full, of course.
