You Will Need
Find online coupons
Find online coupon codes before you buy. Simply type the name of the shop or product into the search engine along with the word "coupon" or "coupon code." Search online for sites that offer coupon codes for a number of stores.
Find free stuff
Find retailers that offer free gifts with a purchase. That free stuff can turn into presents or stocking stuffers for friends and family.
Save time and money
Save time and money by going to websites where you can compare prices on an item for the best deal, get coupon codes, and receive cash back for purchases.
Use a smartphone
Use an internet-enabled smartphone to download shopping applications to help you get the best deal. This way, you can get deals while on the go.
Know when to buy
Know when to buy online. Wait to purchase books and apparel until the last day of free shipping, to wait for prices to fall even further. Snap up toys and DVDs right away, which may become scarce around the holidays.
Reduce buyer's remorse
Reduce the risk of buyer's remorse by paying attention to price guarantees, which means if an item goes on sale after you buy it, the store will refund you the difference. You can enter your purchases into sites that will e-mail you if a product is marked down after you buy it. Happy shopping.
