5 Ways How You Can Save Money When Shopping Online

With Christmas just days away, we are all looking for ways how we can save money online, especially with the cost-of-living crisis that we are all currently living through. Carry on reading for our top tips on how you can save money when shopping online. 

Compare Prices Effectively

Doing your research whilst shopping and researching the places and the prices that are right for you will save you a lot of time and money. It is worth it to take the time to check multiple shops for the best prices before deciding to make a purchase. There are plenty of websites such as Amazon and Google Shopping that can help you to compare the prices of particular items.

Try To Get A Retroactive Discount

Once you have purchased an item, the price comparisons do not need to stop. If you have seen something on sale after you have bought it, check the store’s price adjustment policy as some stores give you time from a few days up to two weeks to get credit for the price difference. Get in contact with the store to ask about the price adjustment policy. 

Search For Vouchers

When making a purchase online, look for vouchers online. For example, if you are planning to make a purchase from ASOS, search for “ASOS Discount” in Google search engine and some trusted discount sites will pop up on Google. Or sometimes websites give you 10% off if you sign up to their newsletter or for a first time purchase. There are also chrome extensions that offer discounts for example Honey, which is available in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, and Europe. Honey is a chrome extension that searches for discounts when you are shopping on a website, sometimes you can save up to 30% which is a fantastic deal, especially around Christmas time. 

Leave Items In Your Shopping Cart

This trick works really well when you are deciding how urgent a purchase is. Go through your shopping list and select the “nice to have” and the rest of the items in your list can wait for another time. When shopping online, stores tend to have systems in place to encourage you to finish your purchase. Once this happens, sometimes the stores will then begin to offer you discounts.

Create A Budget For Your Online Shopping

If you need to be aware of how much you are spending, set yourself a budget. Having a budget in place will save you from temptation such as “free shipping on orders over XX amount”, so many people end up buying things that they don’t really need.
