1. Online shopping is a great way to find items that are out of stock at your local store. As an example, if you are unable to find a certain size of jeans at the store close to you, you can look on the store's website and learn if they are accessible to be shipped to you.
2. Before going shopping at any online retailer, do a quick search for promotional codes. Many of the big retailers often have promotions running which are not advertised on their own home page. Carrying out a quick hunt for these codes will allow you to insert the code at checkout to save money.
3. Look for coupons before purchasing a product online. Most online stores always have some promotional offers taking place. If you do not find any details about current offers on the site of the online store, look on other sites. Customers sometimes share their discount codes on message boards or couponning blogs.
4. Turn it into a habit to register for price alerts. This goes even for purchases that you've recently made. Price alerts will let you know each time a product has dropped to some price you like. And if you've recently purchased at full price, you can ask for a price adjustment to meet the new deal.
5. Many online shopping sites offer discounts if you use a "discount code". These codes are often found online simply by entering the words "coupon code" along with the manufacturer or name of the website you will be buying from. They could offer a percentage off or free shipping by simply entering inside a simple code which can be easily found by investing a few minutes looking for it.
