Shopping online can be easy and quick, but it can also be expensive if you don’t pay attention to some aspects. Luckily, there are various tips to help you save money. Here are some tips for getting the best deals when you shop online:
Don’t pay full price on anything unless you have to. Normally a few minutes of checking around online can reveal a coupon code you can apply at the checkout process to save some money.
Always search for coupons before placing an order. We have tons of coupon codes for all types of stores and shops, from small online stores to large chain stores.
Get Free Shipping
Many online stores offer free shipping, usually only if you spend over a certain amount. Adding one low-cost item to their order can be a way to reach your order price into free shipping category and save a great amount of money. Also many stores have a free shipping coupon code available. Many of them don’t even require a minimum order amount. Always search free shipping coupons online.
Cash-Back Credit Cards
Many people avoid the use of credit cards because of the risks involved. But as long as you pay off your credit card in full every month, it’s possible to save money by getting money back every time you use a credit card.
In my opinion, Fidelity American Express is the best. Reward rate is 2%. No annual fee, good way to add money to your investment account, better chance to get accepted than Discover. Also, you can redeem your rewards into a Fidelity checking account. Also Costco American Express is pretty good. It offers 3 percent cash back at U.S. gas stations and on gasoline at Costco for up to $4,000 per year in purchases, then 1 percent, 2 percent cash back at U.S. restaurants, 2 percent cash back on eligible travel purchases, including at Costco
and 1 percent cash back on other purchases, including at Costco
