Save Money with Online Shopping

online shopping

How many times do you go to the store and buy more than you planned?  This happens to me all the time.  I have one thing in mind that I need to buy and end up coming home with something I didn’t plan on buying and probably didn’t need.  Shopping online is not only quick and convenient but has saved me lots of money.  Some people would disagree that shopping online can be pricey because of shipping costs and return policies, but with the following tips, you can save lots of money by choosing to buy online.

Online Shopping Tips

  1. Search for Coupons – Never buy anything online without using a coupon.  You will always be able to find a coupon for free shipping, a percentage off, or buy one get one.  Sites like Coupon Sherpa have tons of coupon codes for all kinds of retailers including groceries.  If you do find a better deal in-store you can even print coupons from their site. For example, if I plan on hitting up Target later I can stop by here first,, to see what sort of discounts I can score.  Don’t forget to try more than one coupon.  Some retailers let you “stack” coupons which save you tons of money.
  2. Sign Up for Emails – When you buy something online the retailer will ask for your email address.  Getting tons of emails a day can be annoying, but your favorite retailers will send you special offers.  Many retailers will send you money off your purchase just for signing up. There have been many times I am thinking about buying something and I get an email letting me know that the item is on sale or that I can use a coupon for it.  A trick I use for not clogging up my inbox to use one email address for retail and another email for business.
  3. Join Reward Programs – It pays to join loyalty programs.  You will get notice of sales before the public and special deals.  Enter your loyalty number every time you shop and you will earn money back on your purchase.  I recently bought a pair of shoes and found out I had $20 off because of the reward program.
  4. Compare Prices – Spend some time searching the product you want to buy at different retailers.  You will notice that prices will vary and if they don’t vary some retailers will offer free shipping or promotions when others do not.
  5. Free Shipping – Most retailers will offer free shipping if you spend a certain amount.  If the item you want to buy is under the required price for free shipping, consider adding other items you may need.  Think about items you may need to buy in the future or gifts that you need to get.  You will save yourself a good amount of money just by buying something you will need to buy in the future.
  6. Use A VPN – Online shops and services tend to vary their prices based on your country of origin and sometimes even zip code.  To ensure you are getting the best deal possible, you use tools like VPNs to spoof your location and hide your IP.  A VPN encrypts your traffic and sends it to the VPN provider’s servers in the location of your choice.  This way, not only can you access cheaper prices, the encrypted traffic would also protect your financial information.  
  7. If you’ve ever found yourself needing to return items bought online, you can easily navigate this process by taking a few simple steps. To learn more about returns, start by checking the specific return policy of the online retailer from whom you made the purchase for example if you bought something from Temu, you will need to learn more about temu returns. This policy will typically provide you with information on the timeframe within which you can return the item, any associated fees, and the condition in which the item should be returned. Additionally, familiarize yourself with the return process outlined on the retailer’s website. Usually, this involves initiating a return request, printing a shipping label, and sending the item back. By following these guidelines, returning items bought online becomes a hassle-free experience, ensuring customer satisfaction.

These 5 tips will not only save you money, but they will save you lots of time.  Shopping online from your comfy couch even saves you gas money!  Give online shopping a try today.
