Shop For Less Tips ~ Amazon Blast Give Away

Regular readers are well aware that this Mom loves shopping!  Although I do not shop simply for the thrill of purchasing items I do not need, rather I enjoy the process of the hunt for the perfect item I do need.    Of course, all my online and in person searching tends to help me discover new 'must haves' I had not previously considered, however I think of that as a benefit of thorough research before making my shopping selections.

Of course, funding my purchases is not part of my shopping joy.  Rather, within my shopping hunts I am always searching for ways to maximize my shopping budget to facilitate even more shopping!

One of my favorite online sites is Amazon.  With such a wealth of products from every shopping genre imaginable, I find it an excellent 'go to' resource for so many online purchases I make throughout the year.  Utilizing Amazon for my shopping needs is even more of a treat when I have Amazon gift certificate codes available to lessen the bite of my purchases to my shopping budget.

Such was the case just today when the Hubs gravely informed me of the demise of our in ground pool filter.  I simply had to take a moment.  What a trooper, was the old gal, working away each summer season to keep our pool clean, clear and brilliantly blue. I was particularly fond of the fact that she had come with our home at purchase.   Not at all excited was I to make an unexpected $400 purchase!

Fortunately, this Mom usually has a few Amazon gift certificate codes up her sleeve and today was no exception.   While not enough to cover the full expense of the new pool filter, certainly enough to make a strong contribution to the cause and preventing a painful bite to my shopping budget!

Shop For Less Tips
  • Search, search and then search some more!  A thorough search of the item you must have will often unveil a wide range of prices!
  • Once you find the best price, don't jump into a purchase.  If considering making a purchase from a new to you company, check their customer ratings, look for familiar badges awarded to reliable retailers and check the Better Business Bureau listing for the state in which their offices are located.
  • Buy direct from manufacturers when possible.  Even if the manufacturer does not sell to the public, you may find special offers and rebates on their site, as well as a listing of their authorized dealers.
  • Check the company's social media channels for exclusive offers available to followers.  For favorite retailers, you'll also want to sign up for any newsletters as they often contain special savings for subscribers.
  • Look for retailers whose offices are in or near your state.  Not only may you receive your items faster, you may pay less in shipping.
  • Check online coupon sites for special offers for additional savings from the manufacturer or retailer.
