Tips to Save Money: Online Shopping

Online shopping is convenient, and let's face it, who doesn't like shopping in the comfort of their own home?
Making purchases online can be costly if you don't look for deals beforehand. Many companies require you to purchase a certain amount in order to qualify for free shipping. That certain amount will often range anywhere from $50 to $100.
This is why the biggest tip I can give anyone who shops online is to look for promo codes!

I do this every time I shop online. Often, companies will have promotion codes for:
  • Free shipping
  • Money or percentage off your order
  • Free deluxe samples or products
During checkout, most sites will have a "coupon code," "promotion code," or "discount code" box to apply a code to your order. When I shop at Sephora, I always use a promo code. There are so many deluxe samples and products to try if you include a promotion code with your order. Sephora will occasionally have a 10 or 15 percent off your purchase deal. I have also seen offers for free shipping on orders over $25.

When you see a promotion code that is worthwhile, take advantage of it! I would rather make a purchase with free shipping over $25, than $50 any day!
I can't help but take advantage of free shipping offers because why pay $7.95 just to receive your items? It's even worse when shipping rates are based on how much your purchase costs, versus the weight of the items to be shipped.

Sephora isn't the only store I shop online. There are hundreds of stores who want your business and will entice you with money-saving offers. 

When you look for a code online, always check to see the success rate of that code. You can find promotion codes for so many businesses, including apparel, electronics, retail, and even airfare!

I use promotion codes whenever I can when making online purchases. Remember to always look for free shipping offers, money-saving deals, and free stuff to include with your order.

Shopping is a great stress reliever (can you tell I'm a shopping enthusiast?), and it's an even better experience when you can save some money in the process.
