I love shopping online, because I find it saves me a lot of time and money (more on that in a future post), especially if you know the right stores to shop to get the very best deals. But I always just was happy enough with the deals I was already getting on my favorite sites, didn't know that there was even more that I could do to save money.
I was recently contacted by a representative from PromoPro.com to check out their website, and I'm so glad I did. In general, I have this attitude of "Appreciate what you have" and don't look to make things better if they're already good, but in this case, I should have.
The way it works is you check out a company that you're planning on buying from anyhow, by searching for it on PromoPro's website. If you're lucky, you'll find a code there that you can plug into the website you'd be buying from regardless, at checkout, and instead of paying the low price you were going to be paying, you now save even more because of this discount you got.
And if you didn't find a code? No harm done.
If what you plan on buying isn't time sensitive, you can sign up to receive an email when there's new promocodes and discounts listed for those companies, and when you get that alert, then you buy what you need.
There are some stores I tend to shop at online:
NextDirect.com, Amazon.com, Ebay.com, Betterworldbooks.com, Bookdepository.com, Groupon.com, Aliexpress.com, ZenniOptical.com, etc. I also searched some other sites that I may peruse from time to time, such as Payless.com, OldNavy.com, Landsend.com, NewEgg.com, Expedia.com, Walmart.com, Target.com, etc. They all were on PromoPro and had some deals or another available.
Of course, some deals are only applicable to first time shoppers on their site, and some are deals only on specific things. But some sites you may get lucky with site wide deals that apply to everyone. I tried out a code from BetterWorldBooks.com and it worked for me so that was awesome.
Another way you can use the site is by searching for deals by category, whether it's food, clothing, education, home and garden, office supplies, toys, and more. That way, if you don't have a specific site you're looking to buy from, but know what type of thing you're looking for, you can see what stores have the best deals and shop there.
Lastly. if you aren't into online shopping, there are also printable coupons to use for in-store purchases as well.
Can I guarantee that if you go to PromoPro before shopping you'll absolutely get a great deal? No. But it costs nothing, just takes a few minutes of your time, and has the potential to save you a lot of money in a short amount of time.
So, go give it a shot, and hopefully you'll be able to save a lot of money on the purchases you'll be making anyhow.
