Savvy shoppers should be vigilant when it comes to deals and discounts, and not everything is always as it seems. Many brands and retailers will temporarily increase the price of their products and then decrease them back to their original price, advertised as a price drop.

Fortunately, there are price tracking sites that can be used to check the price history of an item to see whether you are really getting a deal or not.

Leave Items in Your Basket

Leaving items in your basket will often trigger an abandoned basket email after a certain period of time. Retailers do this to encourage you to go through to the next step of the purchase journey, and more often than not, they will probably send you an email with a coupon code or deal to get you to check out.

Go Incognito To Beat Dynamic Pricing Strategies

Many retailers will use dynamic pricing strategies, meaning that they will increase the price of a product if a shopper is regularly browsing the product. By browsing in incognito mode or clearing their cache, shoppers can avoid falling victim to dynamic pricing strategies and can bag the desired products at a lower price.


Browse Outlets

You can save a lot of money by online shopping at outlets rather than on the brand’s websites. Many outlet sites will offer products at a much cheaper price and can even save shoppers anywhere up to 50% of the original MSRP on big designer names. A quick Google search for the brand name and “outlet” will direct you to the outlet sites.


Spend More To Beat Delivery Costs

Delivery costs can soon begin to mount up and is an additional unwanted charge on top of your online shopping bill. Many big-name brands and retailers will incentivize larger cart values by offering free delivery when you spend over a certain amount.


It is often worth adding an extra low-value item or two in order to get free delivery. Signing up for premium subscriptions such as Amazon will save you money in the long run as you get free next-day delivery.


Search for Discount Codes

One of the most effective methods to save money when shopping online is by taking the time to search for brand discount codes. Platforms such as Wethrift offer easily accessible discount codes for thousands of brands in one easily accessible place.


Remember to be savvy and strategic with your use of discount codes in order to maximize the amount of savings made. For example, if you can only apply one code to your purchase, work out whether a £10 off code or a 15% off code would generate a larger saving.


Follow Brands and Retailers on Social Media

Following your favorite brands and retailers is another ideal way to access exclusive discount codes and early access to sales. Retailers often post coupon codes or deals on social media.


Sign Up for Retailer’s Mailing Lists

Fortunately, if you don’t want to spend your time manually searching for discount codes, most brands are keen to send them directly to your inbox. By signing up for mailing lists, many brands will regularly include online discount codes within their promotional emails.
