Online shopping is the perfect option if you really need something from the store but don’t want to get out of your sweatpants. You can literally find whatever you need on the internet. Unfortunately, online shopping can get extremely expensive pretty quickly.
If your bank account has been begging you to cut back on the spending but you can’t stop shopping, there are ways to save a few dollars. According to House Beautiful, you can actually get some money back while shopping. They say if you aren’t using Ebates, you’re not shopping smart. Ebates is a site that receives a commission from stores from sending you to them. In return, the site shares their commission with you. The extension is available for any chrome user and allows you to get up to 10% back on many websites. After you’ve been a member of Ebates for three months, you’ll get a check. You’ll also get a check every three months after that.
It's also important not to buy anything before searching for it on Google. Chances are you’re going to find the exact product you’re looking at for a lot cheaper on another website. For example, you can find a coffee table on Wayfair for almost $250.00. Searching for it on Google could help you find it for only $170 on Amazon. If you don’t want to search for anything manually, you can use different Chrome extensions like PriceBlink. Check out SmartBuyGlasses for some amazing deals on brand name shades!
If you’re not using Honey while shopping, you’re crazy. Honey is another Google Chrome extension that will help you get the best deals on the internet. Many online shops offer discount codes and coupons to new shoppers, email subscribers, or customers that are a part of their VIP club. While you may not fall under any of those labels, you can still gain access to the discounts. Honey does a search of all existing coupons to get you the cheapest prices. It’s a really easy way to save money without even trying.
About 47% of U.S. online consumers rate high-quality product images as the most influential factor when considering a product purchase from a specific brand. If you’ve fallen in love with a top that you saw a bunch of pictures of online but it’s a bit out of your budget, there are ways to save a few dollars. Always search for it on Google and use extensions like Honey to get the best price.
