1. Make it a habit to sign up 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 prefer. And if you've recently purchased at full price, you can ask for a price adjustment to satisfy the new deal.
2. When a company includes a newsletter, register. Often, companies will give sneak peeks, promotions and discount codes to people on their own mailing list. However, be careful. You don't want to sign up for every company's newsletter or you'll soon be buried under endless emails. Only sign up for a company's newsletter if you really like their goods and would use a promotion code.
3. Always look for discount codes when shopping on the net. Many online stores give out discounts for various things and you can see them by performing a simple search. Just enter in the name in the store and coupon and you might find a great discount. This is a great way to spend less when you shop online.
4. If you like an online store, sign up for their email distribution list. You will probably receive some coupons and information about deals in your mailbox. Check these emails regularly to keep up to date with good deals and promotional offers. Most online stores often offer free delivery or discounts on certain products.
