Save Money Shopping Online

Unless I am shopping for groceries, I am typically an online shopper. I prefer the convenience and comfort of shopping from home rather than going out and fighting the crowds. I’ve also realized as long as free shipping is involved, I can score much better deals at home. I am able to set a few minutes aside each day and browse the newest sales and clearance at multiple stores.

If I am shopping with a purpose with a specific product in mind, I start by scouting out the store with the best price for that product. Once I have determined which store I will be shopping at I scouring the web for online coupons or promo codes. It's worth it in the end, but can also be quite time consuming and even a bit frustrating when you run across tons of expired codes or hard to navigate sites. I prefer to turn to sites I know, trust, and can easily navigate.

If you’re not a frequent online shopper, finding the right promo code site might seem a bit overwhelming, considering all your choices. The main thing you want to look for is easy navigation, up-to-date promotions, and sites that don’t make you jump through hope to reveal the code. Take discount at for example. Everything is clearly label from new to expiring codes. The site is easy to navigate and you’re simply supplied with the promo code, there is no signing up for emails or a service before they release the code to you. And even better yet, they don't just provide codes to your favorite retail stores, but they also have restaurant discount codes!

Online shopping can be quite rewarding and you can score some amazing deals. Just remember your coupon codes and free shipping offers. When ordering clothing unless you already know how a specific stores sizing runs, it never hurts to take a peek at the sizing chart and find out the details of the return policy, just in case. October is also a month dedicated to online safety. For your protection remember when heading to the checkout before entering your payment info or any other personal information look at the address bar and make sure it reads https: and not just http. The “S” at the end, lets you know you’re now working on a secure server.  Happy shopping!

What kinds of deals do you look for online? Do you prefer the convenience of online shopping or rather the hands-on experience?

I prefer the convenience of online shopping but a lot of time I find good deals at the store so I am conflicted about which one is my favvorite.

I love finding deals online. It's easier for me then dealing with crowded malls.

I've found that I like shopping online more now than I ever did before as long as it's something I've tried before or something that I can't get in any of my local stores.

We do both, online and in person shopping but I'll admit, for the past few years nearly all of my holiday shopping is done online!

Thanks for the tips, I've not done a whole lot of shopping online due to the fact I don't have any credit cards, but I've been thinking about getting me a prepaid card because I see so many great deals.
