Because we live in the boonies, we do most of our holiday shopping online, but I rarely pay full price for anything because I’m cheap there are so many opportunities to save money online. Here are my favorite strategies for spending less on your online holiday purchases:
I pretty much love Amazon. You can find almost anything, and it’s usually priced lower than other online retailers. With free Super Saver Shipping and Amazon Prime, I rarely pay for shipping, which makes most Amazon purchases an even better deal.
Moms of young children, sign up for Amazon Mom, a special program tailored directly for moms that offers a free 3-month trial to Amazon Prime, giving you free 2-day shipping on any qualifying order.
If you’re not already earning with SwagBucks, you’re definitely missing out. Earn free gift cards and prizes just by using SwagBucks for your internet searches, and you also earn additional SwagBucks when you refer friends. To be honest, the only thing I ever cash out my SwagBucks for is Amazon gift cards because of my aforementioned love of Amazon, but there are tons of prize options. Sign up today and receive 30 SwagBucks to start you off!
Online Coupon Codes
Whenever I make a purchase online, I always search for coupon codes before checking out. Sites like Retail Me Not and Coupon Cactus list coupon codes for tons of sites, and you can often save anywhere from 5 to 30% on a purchase.
