1. Before going shopping at any online retailer, do a quick search for promotional codes. Most of the big retailers often have promotions running which are not advertised on the home page. Carrying out a quick hunt for these codes will allow you to insert the code at checkout to save money.
3. If you like an online store, subscribe to their email distribution list. You will probably receive some coupons and information about deals within 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.
4. Turn it into a habit to register for price alerts. It goes even for purchases that you've recently made. Price alerts will let you know whenever a product has dropped to your price you like. And if you've recently purchased at full price, you can ask for a price adjustment to satisfy the new deal.
5. When you shop online, be sure the site you happen to be on starts with "https". The "S" signifies that the site is secure, which entails that you can safely enter your personal information without having to concern yourself with identity theft. If a site lacks the "S" in it, you might want to avoid using it.
