We all like to save money. So how come some people seem to always grab the best possible deals? Sure, some of it is luck, but much of it is knowing where to look. Here are some top ways you can find the best deals online:

Be prepared

There are constantly sales online, and the trick is to make sure you’re ready to jump on the best deals as soon as they appear. For example, Amazon Prime Day is packed with incredible savings- many of which continue for days and weeks after the actual sale day. Here are some of the best deals available if you missed out, but you can also mark your calendar for next time.

Use Coupon Codes

Coupon codes can save you lots of moolah- simply by entering a few letters or numbers. These days, there are plenty of awesome browser extensions which automatically scan the web and apply any coupon codes when it’s time to check out. That means no more searching the web only to find that your code expired a year ago.

Email lists

Sure, we all have plenty of emails to sort through every day. But when you sign up to a mailing list, you’ll often find out about discounts and deals way before they’re advertised to the general public.

It can be worth opening an email dedicated solely to these emails so you can check it periodically and avoid overwhelming your inbox.

Use comparison sites

If you already know what you’d like to purchase, comparison sites can be a great way to make sure you get the best possible deal. Keep in mind that some sites only advertise certain retailers, so it’s a good idea to check out a few options. Make sure that the prices are comparable and include all taxes and delivery fees. These sites also often include reviews if you’re still deciding exactly which product you want.

Be prepared

There’s nothing worse than seeing an amazing deal only to realise that you’ve already spent all your cash. If you’re already considering buying a particular product, make sure you have the money ready to go so you can immediately jump on the deal. Some of the best deals are sold out immediately, and if you’ve got your credit card prepared, you’ll be one of the lucky ones.
