- February 12, 2019
As you all know I LOVE Shopping and my all the time favorite type is doing it online! So, today I decided to share some of my HOLY GRAIL, cheap easy tips and tricks to find the best deals on clothes, shoes, and everything in-between!
The internet is a gold mine of fashion. You just have to know where to look 😛 So here is me, a shopaholic, letting you guys know HOW TO SHOP ONLINE! In a Budget, of course
HAPPY ONLINE SHOPPING!!
1. Use Google Shopping:
Google shopping is a very cool option to find any kind of product online. You can directly go through all your desired items by using it. You guys will find this option on Google search page just under the search bar and beside ALL.
Use this option and I can guarantee, you’ll love it. This search option shows almost all the products based on your search.
2. Specify Your Searched Products:
Whenever you are searching for something online, search them specifically. Search for specific products, their color, style, fabric, size, shape, everything. This way you will find the exact product you are looking for.
For example, you are looking for a black denim high weighted jeans or red maxi dress, just write the whole thing. The best chances are you are going to get just the product you are actually looking for.
Don’t just write a red dress or blue denim etc. You won’t possibly find your desired items easily.
3. Free Coupons for Online Shopping:
Before shop online, always google for free coupons. This is an amazing trick to get a discount on the products that you want to buy online.
There are some websites you can go to, where you will find these coupons. Such as
This is one of my most favorite tricks to get discounts on anything, I want to buy online.
4. Search For Specific Websites:
There are many websites for specific pieces you are looking for. Some websites are famous for their clothing items, some are for their shoes, accessories, or even for home goods. Search for those sites which are great for better quality products, deals, and stuff.
- www.houzz.com (Home Decor)
- www.prettylittlething.com (Clothing)
- www.meshki.com (Clothing)
For example, eBay, Wish these sites are good for cheap clothes, shoes and so many other things, Amazon is a great place to find books of any genre and also for good quality other products.
5. Search by Prices
There are so many websites, who sell the exact same products but for a different price. You will be amazed to see the fluctuation between prices throughout different online shops. You might find your 50$ black backless dress for only 20$ on another website. So, to get the best deal compare your chosen items with other site’s prices.
Maybe sometimes, you will get to see that, some websites are making more money for their products because of the quality of materials of the products. So, it’s certain that some site’s some product quality may vary by their prices.
6. Look for Suggestions:
We all see those adds on the suggestions. Those adds are there for a reason. People, websites, online stores pay a lot of money to advertise their products up there. So that those adds can suggest other related products we might like or need.
Go through those suggestions, it’s a good way to shortlist some items you are actually looking for.
7. Check for Sizes:
Size matters a lot. Always check for the size charts. Read them carefully and then order your stuff. Whenever you are about to order something on the online look for the sizes. Whatever you are ordering, if that has any sort of size issues, check for your size.
If you don’t know your size, get a measuring tape, and try to know your correct size. It will help you a lot, while you are shopping online.
8. Use return Button:
Most of the online shop has this option where you can return your products at a certain time. Some have policies like return in 1 week or 1 month or even 3 months and you will get even full refund. This is a very useful option for us people who really love to shop online.
Amazon prime has the best return policy, they even have a free shipping facility.
9. Read Product Reviews:
I think this is one of the most important hacks you can ever think of while shopping online. It’s because so many people have already bought those stuff you are wanting to buy and they post their experiences or the product reviews to help others.
I always look for those reviews because so many people even post pictures of those products and that really helps me to see how those products look like in real life or on someone if its a cloth, shoe, or things like that.
10. Shop During Holidays:
We all know holidays mean sales. All the retail shops give up to 50%, 70% or even 90% sales on their all products or sometimes for some specific products. Whatever it is, try to shop during these holidays and you will get great deals and discounts on so many things. Some sales are like:
- Memorial Day / Sale
- Halloween / Sale
- Summer / Sale
- Winter / Sale
- Christmas / Sale
- 4th of July / Sale etc.
11. Junk e-mail for Mailing Lists:
Always use junk e-mail addresses for mailing lists. This way you will get free promo codes and stuff like that. I have like 15 or 20 junk e-mail addresses to signup and get free promo codes and coupons.
So, use your junk e-mails to list yourself on different websites and you will get those coupons and promo codes to shop for cheap.
12. Call Customer Care:
Many of us have this wrong idea that online shops don’t have any customer care option but it’s not right. All the online shops have their individual customer care to help their customers. Call them for any kind of query or if you just need any help.
Ask for their help, they will give you the best suggestions, help options or information they could. Call online shop’s customer care for your own help it’s really helpful in many cases.
13. Watch Youtube Reviews:
This is like the easiest way to know about any product. There are so many talented and sincere YouTubers who post genuine and fair reviews about so many products every day, They test them on, they also wear them to show us the real deal.
So before buying those stuff watch their review videos. I hope you will get a clean review of the products you are looking for. Also this the cheapest way to know about any product.
14. Look for Seasonal Products:
Whatever you don’t find in stores like seasonal products or stuff like that, you will find them online. So, always check the online shops of any store to find those products, there’s a chance that you will find them there.
I always buy my favorite candles and winter clothes this way. Like pumpkin spice candles in the middle of winter or winter clothes in summer. Online shopping is the best way to do it.
