Save Real Money Online

22 Apr 2014

I like to shop online. It’s convenient; saving time, gas and money.

There a many tools to help you shop, like aps and website that compare models, prices, and offer discounts. It’s a great way to save a ton of money!

Just in the past two days I saved more than $51!

I need an electronic ball valve (really). Locally they are almost $400. So I decided to look around online.

First I did a simple Google search for the part and found websites that compared models and prices. I was able to find comparable product for $185 at a particular online store.

Upon checkout, I decided to Google “discount codes” for the store I was buying from. Sure enough, I found a code for $25 off from another website. I plugged it into my cart and VOILA! I saved $25, bring the price down to $160!

Then I needed to order something else at Lowe’s. At checkout I decided to try another Google search, this time for “Lowes promotional codes.” And SHAZAM! I found a code for 10% off my order. That translated to 26 bucks! Seriously, 26 bucks!

So without trying very hard, I saved $51 in hard cash and even more if you consider what shopping around did for me.

Whether or not you like to shop online, if you GO online, doing a little research can help you save more of your hard-earned money. It just takes a little tenacity and belief that you can get the best deal if you try just a little! (I’m amazed at people who never shop around. Ugh!)
