It should not come as a surprise that more and more people are starting to lean towards online shopping, considering its long list of advantages. Plus, when it comes to clothes, shoes and household items, a large majority of websites offer free exchanges with a rather long grace period.

Having said that, one of our favourite reasons for shopping online is the gorgeous discounts that these sites offer! Read on to find out how you can save those extra bucks.

1. Sign up for Newsletters

Most websites offer a hefty sum of discount for first-time customers when you sign up for their newsletters –which you can unsubscribe to later if you want to. Apart from these amazing discounts, they also send you exclusive discounts and invitations to sales!

2. Go Undercover

Some online merchants such as flight and hotel booking sites have the tendency to tailor prices according to your location and previous search results. For instance, if you’ve been looking at a certain hotel for a couple of days, you might notice a hike in the price due to dynamic pricing. Hence, to avoid this, you should always go incognito (use private browsing) or clear your cache and cookies before proceeding to travel sites.

3. Take Advantage of Sales

Most online sites that sell clothes and lifestyle items, hold rather frequent sales, be it storewide or clearance. So it is up to you to take advantage of this when wanting to purchase. Apart from getting your hands on discounted items, you can also stack your coupons to enjoy even further reduction in price. We all love a good bargain, don’t we?


4. Birthday Vouchers

A large majority of sites send customers exclusive birthday vouchers during their birthday month. And more often than not, these vouchers do not require a minimum spend, so feel free to use it as you please. And an extra tip, as we mentioned before if the site allows you to stack your vouchers, then save it till a huge sale, since birthday vouchers usually don’t expire as fast.

5. Use ShopBack
