Shopping online saves you a trip to the store and gives you more time in your day, but sometimes shipping costs and prices have you spending more than you probably wanted to. Use these money saving tips to make online shopping cost and time effective!
Add web browser extensions
There are plenty of web browser extensions, such as Honey that search the web for discount codes and deals that are online that you probably don’t know about—or that you would have to spend a decent amount of time searching for. These web applications will find and apply the discounts to your shopping cart. There is nothing more satisfying than, with the click of a button, watching your shopping cart price drop!
Price drop refunds
If you notice the day after you order something that it went on sale, try contacting the company in which you ordered from. Many companies will offer price drop refunds within a certain period of time from when you ordered the product to when it went on sale.
