Want to save money by shopping online? Using these 9 pro tactics, here’s how to save money using voucher codes online.
Shopping traditionally, you can bargain for hours to make the seller sell you at your desired price. Sadly, it’s not possible with online shopping. But you can still save money using voucher codes. Here’s how.
9 Tips to Save Money Using Voucher Codes While Shopping Online
Here are some of the best behind the door insider tips for you.
Look for different competitors.
Whenever you want something to shop online, your first instinct is to probably Google it. Then click on one of the first few results, and buy an appealing product with some positive reviews. Don’t do that anymore.
In every industry, on every product, there are dozens of brands competing. We’re mostly only aware of the few mainstream brands – which are also often expensive.
Today, in this brand-rich era, where local businesses and start-ups are seeing tremendous growth, it can be an opportunity to save money.
Your best bet is to Google the thing you want to purchase – and then wearing your detective glasses – do a thorough research.
Move to page 2 or even 3 of Google. If you’re buying from Amazon, compare different prices and offers of sellers. Ask in relevant groups and communities on social media platforms like Reddit, Facebook, and Quora. See where you can get the best product at the best price.
Start building this habit immediately. It may take a bit of your time, but it’s worth it because it can save you money while shopping online every single time, which is exactly what you want.
Compare coupon codes.
Your friend gave you a coupon code or you saw the code on the brand’s official website. Don’t use it straight away.
Often brands have affiliates, which are given hot coupon codes to attract buyers. Visit websites like Findbestvouchers to compare coupon codes of literally any brand. Any time.
Instead of getting 10% off, who knows you might even steal 40-50% deals.
Sites like this publish and update voucher codes every hour.
So if you’re thinking of buying something now, don’t forget to check it before pulling the trigger.
There’s always a promo code – you just have to find it.
Yes, if you’re new to online shopping, this might be a bit of a surprise to you.
Before hitting the cart button, search for coupon codes.
Simply, Google: Voucher codes for X (X could be any product or brand). You’ll be surprised to see so many websites with long lists of working money-saving codes.
Join a brand's mailing list to get exclusive offers.
Ever heard of it? If you like a brand, subscribe to their email newsletter.
Most of the time, they give you 10, 20, or even 30 percent off as a welcoming gift.
Also, sometimes their deals and offers are only exclusive to their loyal subscribers.
I personally love this method because all the new exciting deals, offers, and voucher codes are sent straight to the inbox. Officially, which means codes will 100% work.
All for free - you won’t have to spend any energy or money.
But remember to use a separate email address because notifications from brands can be aggressive sometimes.
Become one brand’s loyal consumer.
I know it sounds like an odd tip – because this is business, and you should spend your money where you get the best value – but, hear this out:
Staying committed to one brand you love can be amazing. If you’re their customer for life, they might send you free gifts and voucher codes only exclusive to you.
It can be rare, but at least something is better than nothing.
Coupon code sites are a no-brainer money-saver.
I could tell you again and again that voucher/coupon code sites are so helpful. Make it your habit to visit these sites before you click the buy button.
You just simply need to Google: ‘Voucher codes for X’, and boom. Or, you can directly visit sites like addict2save to get yourself updated with hundreds of working voucher codes on all different brands.
Curbside pickup is still an option.
If you don’t know, curbside pickup can save you shipping costs. It’s when you buy from a brand, and go and pick the item by yourself. Do this when you’re buying from a nearby local business – so you can pick the item any time; while going back to home, to work, or while passing by.
After COVID breakdown, many businesses started to offer curbside pickup, and they still do. Check the brand’s site’s FAQs section to see if they offer. Or you can directly ask the customer support team.
If you want it, ask for it.
I have seen it work on TikTok – don’t laugh at me like this. It can be a fun thing to do.
Simply call the brand you want to shop from, praise the product you want to buy, and ask – while being jolly – if you could get some sort of discount on that particular item. Say you really want the item, but you’d appreciate a discount.
If you’re lucky, you’ll get it – they can instantly generate voucher codes only for you.
I suggest trying this on brands you already shop from so you can comment on their rest of the products as well. Or you could at least try to talk it through.
Buy bulk, save bulk.
This is more like an obvious and the most effective tip – but often ignored without realizing the effects.
Create a set budget. Make a list of the items you need.
Then don’t surpass both – neither budget, nor items.
What we often ignore is the psychology behind online shopping. Online shopping is creatively customized, and thoughtfully made seamless and exciting so we could stay on the website and purchase more and more. Don’t get swayed away because of the appealing product pictures, 5 star reviews, or enticing titles.
Spend only where you need, and save yourself against spending on extra items that you’re probably buying for fun or for going with the flow.
Also, buying bulk products can get you offers like Free Shipping or a hot discount offer.
So, this was it – a list of effective tips to save money while using voucher codes.
Remember, there’s almost always a voucher code for everything – you just have to find it by purchasing from the right brands and by visiting voucher sites like ‘savingroots.com’.
Good luck shopping saving!
