With the US economy on the skids, many of us are trying to save as much money as possible. If you’d like to save a little cash while shopping online, here’s a tip that many people overlook.
When you place an order and reach the check out page, often times you’ll see a box to enter a promotional, coupon or other type of code. Most of us assume that since we don’t have such a code we ignore it and check out as usual. But wait…you CAN get a code and save some money.
Simply do a Google search on the company name followed by the words “promo code” or “coupon code”. Most of the time, a website link will become available where you can copy and paste the code into the promo code, check out box. I’ve had pretty good luck with this but occasionally it may not work because the promo codes have expired, etc. Still, 2 or 3 minutes of research is worth the effort.
Also, before you order at Amazon or other discount websites, make sure to check the manufacturer’s website first. Sometimes you can get a better price directly through the manufacturer and that is more often than not, the place where you can check out and apply a promotional code.
