  1. Maintain Wishlists

The purpose of making is wishlist is to get alerts when the price drops. Almost all retailers notify their customers about their products (especially those liked or saved by customers) via email/SMS.

All you have to do is gin up for an account and add the items you like in your wishlist to receive alerts. One ingenious way to do this is by using an exclusive account that’s strictly used for shopping so that it doesn’t get lost in the sea of work and other emails.

You can get promo codes from other websites such as Coupons.com and Groupon.com that will help you save a hefty amount of money. Monitor these sites regularly to stay updated.

Did you know that you can get up to 50-70 per cent off on items that were returned back by customers? Once such website that offers this option is Amazon. Find warehouse deals or quickly scan the description to know about the return season.

Generally, these products are on discounts because a button came out (which can totally be sewn back together), or the box was opened. The product will be in good condition and you’ll also get a whopping discount of at least 50 per cent on every purchase. Now that’s what we can a sweet deal!

  1. Use coupons during sales

Retailers offer huge discounts during holiday weekends/festivals throughout the year. It is wise to use coupons during sales to get more out of every purchase.

Retailers offer mind-blowing discounts when they are trying to clear old stock or seasonal items. For instance, you will find amazing discounts on outdoor furniture in the fall. Similarly, outdoor tools such as grills and lawn mowers are also on discount in fall.

Too many apps might clutter your screen but too less might not save you a lot of money. Download apps of stores where you shop the most such as Target and Walmart where you get exclusive offers and discounts for making in-app purchases.

Even giants like H&M offers a 20% discount coupon when you sign up for the newsletter. Use a separate email account to manage your promotional emails.
