6 Ways to Get Massive Discounts Online

With the emergence of online shopping, many people have found shopping to be quite easy. Shopping has not only been made easy but also cheap for people. By the virtue of shopping online, you can save a lot of money as opposed to shopping in physical retail shops. Things get better if you have coupons when shopping online.

Even though online is cheap by its own right, you can get extended discounts and thus save a lot of money for being keen when shopping. We will explore some of the most effective ways of getting a discount online. In doing so, we will discuss six ways that are considered most effective for massive savings.

1. Identify the best shopping websites

The first and probably one of the most important things to do is to identify the best shopping websites. There are many shopping websites but not all of them are good at giving out the best discounts. This calls for shoppers to know the exact websites known for offering good discounts. As a tip, you should read reviews of different websites to see whether there are coupons used in the websites for redeeming discounts.

2. Shop on the right day

Online shopping is an art that requires one to be very keen to get the best deals on offer. There are particular days that most online shopping websites give out the best deals for their customers. It is on such days that you should go shopping to get these deals. You should know that Sunday is not one of the best shopping days. Though many people prefer shopping on Sundays, due to the nature of the day as a lazy one, it is actually one of the worst shopping days. You can get great deals from Wednesdays to Fridays.

3. Leave items in your cart

You can also try the tip of leaving your products in your cart for a day or two. This simple move could get you some good discount. This is because most retailers hate unsettled deals and thus would do anything, including offering coupons, to have the deal closed. You will be surprised to get a coupon for a better price on the items in your shopping cart.

4. Use multiple coupon codes strategically

Using coupons is one of the best ways of getting discounts online. There are instances where you can have more than one coupon code. It is important then to know how to use the coupon codes strategically to get the best out of them. For example, if you have two promo codes for 20% and 10$ discounts, you should first apply the 20% promo code before the 10% one. This will guarantee you maximum savings.

 5. Have a shopping app

If you want to get the best deals, you must then have a shopping app. There are different shopping apps meant to cater for different purposes. One of the best versions of shopping apps that will help you get the best discounts is one that compares the different prices in different online stores. Such an app will keep you updated on the best deals in the market. This way, you won’t have to make blind shopping decisions.

5. Outwit the dynamic pricing trap

Finally, you should master and outwit the dynamic pricing trap used by online merchants. The prices of most items are not standard and vary depending on the location, spending patterns and the demand of the product. You should consider the following tips for getting unbiased price on a product you are shopping online:

With these tips in mind, you will definitely get the best deals and enjoy great savings for shopping online.

Thanksgiving: It’s About The Simple Things

Thanksgiving: It’s About The Simple Things

Thanksgiving, a day of pure gluttony, football, and possible uncomfortable situations with family members that you may or may not like. Oh, yeah, and the whole “know and reflect on what it is to be thankful and grateful.”

During the holiday season many people forget what this time of year is bout and are too worried about getting the “early-bird” deals on Black Friday and making sure that they have the perfect gifts for their loved ones. I am sort of a “Grinch” when it comes to the holiday season, mostly because of that mentality by many of the poeple around me.

But instead of being grinch-like this holiday season, I decided to simplify things and get back to what this time of year is actually is about; being thankful for what I have and what I can give.

Simplify

I’m not a “minimalist” in any real sense, but in the last few months the talks of Patrick Rhone and others have got me to rethink my stance. Can you really have too much stuff?

Absolutely.

And with all that stuff comes the burden and the weight of it on your back.

If you feel that the things around you are out of control, maybe it’s time to simplify and be thankful and grateful for what you have and use. Here are a few things that you can do to simplify:

  • You know those gadgets in the drawer that you said you were going to sell? Well, time to get the listing on eBay and sell them. Or, send them to a place like Gazelle. Even if they are old and won’t get money, you can at least recycle them.
  • Get rid of things you don’t need. Like old books, clothes, tools, etc. Have something that’s been laying around forever with no use? Donate it to a charity or church. If you aren’t using it, someone else could be.
  • Find your productivity tools and stick with them. Use tools and gadgets that serve multiple purposes so you can simplify your tool set.

Be Mindful

You don’t have to be a master Buddhist or meditator to be mindful (although, it can definitely help). Being mindful comes down to being cognizant of the present and not keeping yourself in the past or future. It’s about living in the moment and being aware of yourself and everything around you. It’s just being.

Without getting too “California” on you, it is super important to be mindful during the holiday rush. Rather than worrying about the things that you forgot at your house on the way to relatives or thinking about the next stop in your endless holiday travels, just breath and think about what you are currently doing.

Spend the time with your family and friends and don’t crush the moment. Try not to concentrate so hard on getting the perfect photo of the “awesome moment” of the day and actually miss the awesome moment.

Being mindful over the holidays will help you be with your families, friends, and yourself allowing you to enjoy your time.

Reflect

As the year is coming to a close (yes, it really is that close!) it’s a great time to start reflecting on what you have accomplished and what you haven’t. Within the next few weeks we will have a more throrough reflection article here at Lifehack.org, but reflecting every now and then over your holiday break is a great way to see where you have been doing well in your life and where you need to improve.

Reflection shouldn’t be used to “get down” on yourself. Reflection should be used to take an honset inventory of what you have accomplished, how you handeled situations, and what you can do better. If you journal everyday (a daily form of reflection) it may be a good time to start going over some of the things that you have written and start to put together a year’s end journal entry. I mean, how else will you write your autobiography?

But, seriously, reflecting on yourself makes you aware of your successes and faults and helps you plan and make goals for the coming year. It makes you a better person.

So, while you are stuffing your face with bird, stuffing, and mashed taters’, remember that the holidays are much more than the superficial things. Use this holiday to become a better person.
