Other Shopping Tips


Tips for Finding the Best Deals


  • Use the Amazon app to price check items in store. (Download the app on your phone. Once in the app, use the scanning feature to scan bar codes in store. It will show you the price of the same item on so you can compare prices.)


  • If you are shopping on, use before you buy so you can see the price trends, including high and low-price points, and get alerted to price drops. (Read more Amazon shopping tips within this post: 21 Secrets to Shopping on Amazon)


  • Look for a coupon for EVERYTHING. Before you buy simply type in “coupon code for INSERT STORE NAME” (for online coupons) or “printable coupon code for INSERT STORE NAME” (for coupons to use in store.) (If you can only find online coupons, check the store’s policies to see if you can purchase online and pick up in store to get the deal.)


  • Sign up for emails for the stores you want to shop at (ideally at least a week in advance). Many stores send exclusive coupons to their email subscribers. (Tip: Create a new email just for these promotional emails as you will likely be receiving daily emails from many stores.)
