Expert Reveals Four Tricks You Can Use To Score Discount Codes for Your Online Shopping
Looking to bag a deal on your next internet purchase? Then what you need are discount codes – and there are ways to get them for nearly everything you can buy online.
Jason Higgs, the Senior Deals Strategist at Bountii, provides the ultimate guide to finding these all-important codes.
Strategically Subscribe To Emails
If you sign up for a brand’s newsletter, the retailer will often reward you with a one-time discount. Creating a separate email account that’s dedicated to these sign-ups means you can score these deals without cluttering your main inbox.
Use Browser Extensions
Browser extensions such as Honey and Rakuten automatically search for and apply the best available discount codes at checkout, simplifying the process of finding deals. They also offer additional rewards or cash back, enhancing the overall shopping experience.
Use Your Shopping Cart
Place items in your shopping cart and then hover your mouse over your browser’s close button. Certain websites are designed to detect this action, which will trigger a popup offering a discount code to entice you to stay on the site and complete your purchase.
Additionally, abandoning your shopping cart can be a strategic move to trigger discounts. Many companies track abandoned carts and will follow up with an email containing discount codes or special offers to encourage the completion of the purchase.
Use Apps And Social Media
Many apps (e.g. VoucherCodes, Vouchercloud, and LatestDeals) are dedicated to collecting and presenting the latest discounts and codes from various retailers.
Social media platforms can offer a direct line to brands, frequently sharing exclusive promo codes in their posts. Engaging on these platforms can open up opportunities for special savings, as well as keeping you updated on new products.
Jason says, ‘It’s worth visiting coupon websites and using live chat to request price reductions. You can even learn how to check website source codes for hidden discounts. The savings are out there, so why not do some research and grab a bargain?’
