This year free shipping is king online. Even if the retailer you are buying from doesn’t offer free shipping, search for a promotional code to reduce shipping costs. If that’s a deal breaker, consider waiting until Decembr 17th (Free Shipping Day) when more than a thousand retailers will offer free shipping.
When you shop online, don’t go directly to the website of your retailer. Instead go to ebates or fatwallet and link to your favorite site. By doing that you can earn cash back. It’s usually a percentage of your total. On days like Cyber Monday, you can save even more as many retailers add extra savings. The other day I earned 6% cash back by linking through one of these sites. You won’t get the cash right away, but it’s nice to earn money for spending money.
I don’t know about you but I hate when I see a box for a promotional code at checkout, and I don’t have one. It’s a lot easier to find a deal that fits your purchase during the holidays, so always look. Search the store you’re shopping and the term “promotional code” for savings. Sometimes you have to buy a certain item, other times you have to spend a certain amount of money to qualify for the discount.
