Spend Less Save More: Shopping Online

Countdown to Christmas 20 Days away well being Cyber week it’s a busy time for those of us online. Some things to remember while shopping online:

Create a separate email account for all your online shopping and correspondence newsletters, private offers from your favorite retailers. Keep a separate folder for each online account and empty your spam regularly.

Print out and crop all receipts before leaving the website, do not rely on the site to send you an email confirming your purchase right away during high traffic web times.

Always push for free shipping as most retailers make that an automatic and does comparison shop. For example a camera on one site maybe price differently but does it come with accessories like memory cards or carrying case these kits maybe a bit more expensive, but realize that cameras no longer come with standard memory cards the company expects you to purchase that separately.

Before shopping make sure that the site you are on has an https it’s important that you see this in front of the web address if you don’t’ see the (s) at the end of the http you are not on a secure site.  Keep track of your sties by adding a file folder on your favorites for comparison shopping.

You can also try cart abandoning this is just a way of first registering on the website choosing your purchases seeing the final cost and then not purchasing the item. Wait about 10 minutes to 1 hour and you will receive an email alert from the manufacture reminding you of the items in your cart and usually along with the reminder a coupon or discount “Friends and Family usually about 10% or Free shipping, either way you get a little something for simply walking away from the sale.

 Taking these steps will keep your information safe online and keep your wallet a little fuller. And remember that all of the affiliates on my site are real site and I have placed orders with each one and have been very satisfied with my purchases and I know you will too.

 Some of my personal favorites inkgarden, Crazy8 and  of course thinkgeek they are so great you find so many one of a kind items on these site and I love that most of the time you can receive free shipping or a reduced price on all of your orders all year long.
