Quadruple Your Savings When Ordering Online

When making purchases online, consider how you might save four ways before you ever hit the Send button:

Step 1

Begin by signing up for discounts and coupons from your favorite retailers, even those you usually visit at their brick-and-mortar store. When you find a sale you are interested in, go to Step 2.

Step 2

Search for your designated store on an online rebate site such as ebates.com. A rebate site gives you an instant credit from merchants as you shop their sites through the rebate site.

Step 3 

Before checking out, search the Web in a separate browser window for the particular store you are shopping. Use the coupon codes which apply to your order.

Step 4

Now, before you check out, be sure to use a credit card which gives a percentage back on all purchases. Or, better yet, look for discounted gift cards online to use toward your purchases. Some to try are giftcardgranny.com, abcgiftcards.com, and plasticjungle.com.
