Walk away from the purchase – just once!
When you get to the point of checking out, make sure you have your website bookmarked, but just walk away! Leave whatever you have bought in your shopping cart and click OFF the site. You will find in many cases, you will receive a further ‘deal’ in your email inbox, some additional money off. It will not always happen, of course. However, we think you may be surprised at the results.
Follow your favorite and most used brands on social media.
Nearly every major retail brand uses its social media presence to help sell their products. They will inform you of the latest announcement and deals and any specific promo codes you can use that day or week. Stay as up-to-date and you will not miss anything.
