Make best of it with these 9 hacks.
Online shopping has become so easy and convenient these days that this is the only method of shopping that we now prefer. Consequently, we often end up buying things we do not really need and wonder where all our money really went! Here are nine tips to your rescue, so that you can save huge money during your next online shopping spree.
Make use of several email IDS
Whenever you find a website offering a ‘Refer a friend and get 500 off’ offer, make several email IDS and register from those email IDS to hack this offer.
Do not let go of the ‘New User purchase discount’
Websites offer special discounts to first time customers. So use alternative IDS each time to make purchases.
Do not be an impulsive buyer. Make sure that you check the price on different websites. You may get the same product at lower rates.
Follow online websites on Instagram/facebook
A lot of websites send out promotions and details of lastminute schemes through their social media pages. Hence it is a good idea to keep track of those.
Leave things in the cart
If you intend to buy something,
leave it in the cart for at least 24 hours. The website will get back to you with discounted rates.
Check for discount coupons in your package
Online sellers often send discount coupons when they deliver your product. Look out for these coupons and put them to judicious use.
Never buy without a code
Google Chrome extensions like Honey and E-bates can come to your rescue here. Also hunt for some promotional codes before buying online.
Clear your browsing history
Did you know that websites can show you higher prices after analysing your demand, search history, etc? Make it a point to clear your search history and cookies each time.
Search for the hidden promo page
Secretly hidden at the bottom of many websites is the ‘Exclusive Offers and Promotion page’. This is a treasure trove of additional sales, deals, and discounts that you can make use of.
