1. When shopping online, most places only accept debit or credit cards. Keep this in mind when you are selecting a site to purchase from. Should you don't feel comfortable providing the company with your credit card information, look for another site. Try to find a site that offers a good page when you're adding your charge card information.
2. Sign up for your favorite online stores' newsletters. Often online stores will send out daily, weekly or monthly newsletters with special sales, discounts and deals. If you like to save cash, you might be able to score some good deals on items you were going to purchase anyway.
3. Make it a habit to register for price alerts. This goes even for purchases that you've recently made. Price alerts will tell you when a product has dropped to a price you like. And if you've recently purchased at full price, you can request a price adjustment to meet the brand new deal.
4. When shopping online, always try to keep in mind the buying price of shipping. Many sites offer free shipping on purchases over a specific amount. In the event that you do have to pay shipping, make sure that it is going to fit into your budget after you've added everything in your cart. Having a full cart only to find out you can not afford the shipping is never an enjoyable experience.
5. When you are creating any purchases on the web and you are required to make a user account, never utilize the same passwords that you use on other websites. Do not use your e-mail or banking password to make an account to buy shoes from a web retailer. If someone was able to check this out password, they might have access to more than simply your profile on the retailer's store.
