Tips on Paying Less While Shopping for More

As a self-professed shopaholic, my favorite thing to do during my free time is to find deals and steals—whether it’s online or at a local store/mall. I probably spend too much time perusing the internet and mail catalogues for the next big sale...even my friends are always asking me where I get all my deals.

Well, I can definitely say from personal experience that it’s really all about keeping your eyes open. For instance, when we’re online shopping, it’s always easy to make the purchase without realizing that there’s some sort of deal going on at the site we’re ordering from. More often than not, there’s some sort of coupon code you can input at checkout that will get you free shipping, ten-percent off, or the like. All you really have to do is simply do a quick google search to see if a coupon exists!

Signing up for catalogs and reward cards will also get you in the loop for some awesome future deals. For instance, I absolutely looooove shopping at Macy’s because they have some of the most wicked sales I’ve ever seen at a department store. I get their regular mail catalogs, which alerts me when their next big sale is. I also carry the Macy credit card, which oftentimes knocks off an extra 15-20% off the lowest of prices (my favorite is when I get to use it on reduced clearance items!).

Price matching is great for places like Nordstorm. While I love Macy’s for their deals, I also love Nordstrom for their style selection. Thing is, Nordstrom doesn’t always have as much discount sales going on as Macy’s. And sometimes, I’ll be eyeing a sold-out pair of shoes that happen to pop up as a last pair at Nordstrom’s shoe section, but realize that it’s slightly more expensive than the other places I’ve seen it. All you have to do is just ask Nordstrom to price-match the item for you, and they’ll do so for you!

Shopping savvy is really all about keeping your eyes peeled for the next best deal. It’s really quite fun to find great deals…because it means you get more for less! ;)
