2. Crosscheck Your Prices
One of the golden rules of shopping online is to ALWAYS compare prices. It’s just common sense. You’ve got no excuse not to, since there are plenty of websites available (such as PriceCanada and InvisibleHand. When you’re browsing one of their supported retailers, you’ll get a little notification if InvisibleHand finds a cheaper price elsewhere. Quite handy, no pun intended.
3. Subscribe To Deal Websites
It pays to know your blogs. The internet is so large that it can be overwhelming to filter through all the deals coming at you. One great way to deal with the info overload is to subscribe to blogs and twitter feeds about coupons and frugality. With those concentrated streams, you’re getting only the best and most relevant deals.
4. Don’t Forget About Freebies
Don’t think that saving money online is limited to watching your pennies. Sometimes, you won’t even need to make a purchase at all. The internet is crawling with freebies and helpful guides to finding freebies in your area. All you really need to do is a quick Google search!
