How to Get the Best Online Deals

Are you looking for to find out How to Get the Best Online Deals?  Every year it just creeps up on us!

With the “official” holiday season just about here and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday only just over a week away, we’re already beginning to see some awesome online holiday shopping deal ideas!

If you don’t want to fight the crowds this year, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for some great online deals that can make fabulous holiday gifts.  We will be posting various online deals here at LRWC as we find them!

Here are some tips for shopping online this holiday season:

  • Take advantage of Ship to Store and Free Shipping Offers:  Many online retailers such as Walmart, Kmart, Lowes and many more offer free shipping when you have the product you purchased shipped to your local store.  This is a great feature because sometimes we can score a great price on a product but then shipping charges can make the deal not so good anymore.  Consider signing up for the following free shipping offers:
  • Amazon Prime: Free 2-day shipping with membership for any amount on participating products on Amazon.
  • ShopRunner : Free 2 day shipping with membership for any amount at stores like Toys R Us, American Eagle,, PetSmart, Sports Authority, GNC and many more.
  • Always shop online through Cash Back sites:  ALWAYS shop through Ebates or ShopatHome before you start your online shopping to get actual cash back in your account, to save even more money!  If you are new to either of these sites, you will also get a bonus cash back when you make your first purchase of $25 or more.
  • Locate the best Internet price:  Even if an item seems like an awesome price, quickly take a minute to do a price comparison to make sure it’s not selling somewhere else cheaper.  Often times private sellers on Amazon will raise the “retail price” very high to make you believe you’re getting a spectacular deal because the % of saving is so high, however this might not always be 100% accurate so be sure to do your research!  I use the online extension PriceBlink which gives you prices at many different stores right in your toolbar.
  • Ship the item directly to recipient: If you’re online shopping for holiday gifts, consider shipping the item you’re buying directly to the recipient!  This will save you extra time and save you the added expense of shipping the item yourself once you receive it.
  • Remember to check LRWC for daily deals:  Be sure to bookmark the following pages to check the up-to-the minute deals for your holiday shopping

    My tip is for the mom’s whose kids have LeapPad products. Get on the email list. My son is notorious for losing the stylus. So, when I see the promotion for free shipping on any accessory item I purchase back ups. I have yet to see the item in the stores. Two pack of stylus is $6.99 but the shipping alone on regular price would double it.

    Another trick for free shipping for an item not in store is to order it via the kiosk. This avoids the ordering it on line and paying shipping if you don’t meet a minimum. If you need an Land’s End item and order it from inside the store they used to mail it you with no shipping costs. Not 100% sure if that is still the case.

    My go-to site for online shopping is you type in the store name in their search box and it’ll show you most, if not all of the promo codes available. I never leave any promo code or coupon code boxes empty!!

    Also- sign up for and get on their mailing list- they send me codes all the time for free products where you only have to pay shipping. They make personalized products that make awesome and super cheap gifts. What a lot of people don’t realize is that you can upload images of basically anything! Can’t find a leopard print canvas bag? Or a mug with your mom’s favorite flower on it? Upload them and order away! 🙂

  • Yes there are many benefits of using online deals. You can easily search for the item and can buy them at minimum price. Moreover, you need not to go anywhere and almost websites are offering free shipping. There is cash back facility as well if you do not like the product or if it has some damage.
