Hey, Friends! Now that the holidays and most of the major sales are over for a while, I wanted to do a post all about how I get discounts everytime I shop. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I shop A LOT, and I always want the best bang for my buck. I’m one of those people that won’t buy something unless I have some sort of discount to go with it. I have some techniques I use for my daily shopping, so I’m always getting a discount. Here they are:
1. When in doubt, sign up for the emails.
I ALWAYS sign up for the website emails. 99% of the time they’ll email you a discount code just for signing up. It’s how I get most of my discounts right off the bat. If my emails start to get too cluttered, I unsubscribe to any of them I don’t want to keep getting. The other good thing about signing up for emails is that you’ll never miss a sale!
2. Google, Google, Google.
As simple as it sounds, before I check out on a website, I always head over to Google and search for coupon codes. Most of the time I find one that works! I also check the home page of the website to see if there are any promotions going on as well! A lot of times they will promote discount codes there too.
Honey is a widget I have on my Google Chrome browser. It’s like my secret online shopping spy that’s always getting me the best deal. Once you download the widget, all you have to do is click on it when you go to check out on a website and it will try every current coupon code for your cart! I find so many deals that I would have never known about this way! It’s a lifesaver.
Another great feature of this widget is when you’re on Amazon, it will tell you if the price of a product is the best deal, or if they think it will drop. Amazon’s prices are always fluctuating, and I love being able to know if I’m getting the best deal I can!
4. Shopping Is A Lifestyle
I honestly can’t say this enough. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I find the best deals when I browse the web on a more regular basis. If I only shop when I absolutely need things, I won’t find the great sales I do when I’m shopping from day to day. For example, I’ve been on the hunt for new sports bras. I was going to go grab some at the mall the other day, but I got the hunch to wait. I went online later, and found some on Forever 21’s website on sale for $10! When you’re all about the deal, it takes a little more time, but you can save some serious dough!
