Today I was taking a walk with my dog and I said that inspired me to write this post. What I said in conversation was “I could write A book on online shopping”. The thing about that statement is I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Over the past year of me shopping I have saved well over a thousand dollars. I saved $200 dollars on a brand new macbook from the apple store. Who doesn’t pay full price for a macbook? That’s what inspired me to write this article.
1. Get on their Mailing list and Actually read your email
Every day I get email that stores I shop at are having sales. And with those emails I have learned what the real sales are. Right now American eagle is having a sale that is a complete rip off. That is because in a couple of weeks that are going to have a sale that is 60% off clearance rather then their sale right now that is up to 60% off. My online rule is I never buy anything unless it is at least 50% off and under $20.
2. Read The Reviews
Sometimes their is a reason something is one sale. Always read the reviews and look at the photos if they have them. I know modcloth has photos in their reviews which are really helpful when you are deciding to buy something that is final sale. Stores will do anything to make sure a product sells. Read the lowest review and always read the top.
3. Search For Coupons
Do you want to know how I got $200 off my macbook? When ever you buy anything online always search for coupons. Say you where going to buy A shirt from Pacsun, search in google pacsun coupons. You might find something helpful.
4. Tell the company how much you like them
Two years ago I chatted with lulus online and told them I loved their store and always love the clothing on their sight. I wasn’t looking for anything in return but I got a code to get 15% off. Even though that doesn’t seem like a lot It still saved me a lot when I was buying my dress for formals.
5. BE SAFE
If the site is creeping you out don’t buy anything from it. No clothing is worth you getting your information stolen.
