ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — In 2016, online sales reached over 360 billion US dollars. In 2021, they are projected to surpass $603 billion. Many say online is the future of shopping, so how can you stay savvy? Below are some ways to save while you spend.
Couponing could save you big money.
“About six years ago it was estimated that I saved about $60,000 a year couponing,” said extreme couponer, Kathy Spencer.
If you aren’t willing to search and clip coupons, you can still save on all your online buys. Retailmenot.com offers thousands of discount codes from pizza to airfare. Ebates.com offers cash back on online purchases if you go through their website. And coupons.com makes it easy to find and print coupons for items you’re going to buy anyway. If you’re an Amazon Prime user, check out “today’s deals” to clip coupons that will be applied when you place an item in your cart. Or go through Amazon’s warehouse deals to save big on items that were simply opened and then returned.
If apps are your thing, check out Ibotta, MyGroceryDeals, or SnipSnap to start saving now.
If you’re looking to get a new computer, consider buying a refurbished one through the manufactures website. This does not mean they were broken computers; refurbished can simply mean that an incorrect item was shipped or a box was dented and someone returned it. Also, they almost always come with a warranty if purchased from the manufacturer, so you’re safe if an issue arises.
