Hacks for getting the best deals online

To enjoy online shopping better you could use certain tips to purchase products and services at lessened prices. You could use a VPN, price-comparison apps, haggle with customer care, and request a rebate from the online shop.

A lot of people love making online purchases, especially during the pandemic where physical shopping is not encouraged. There’s nothing quite like sitting on your sofa or your office chair, making orders to be shipped to a location of your choice. 

However, a lot of individuals are not enjoying all the price benefits that come with online shopping. There are several e-commerce shops out there that offer discounts and coupons in a bid to get more customers. 

In the past, you had to wait for the newspaper to find a shopping coupon. Today, you can head over to an online shop and get flooded with several discounts or trezor promo code, making sure you get more fun and convenience out of shopping online.

Below, you’ll find tips and tricks for making online purchases at lowered prices.

Tricks to Purchase Products and Services at Cheaper Rates

1. Use a VPN

A Virtual Private Network is a software that encrypts the data flowing in and out of your device. It makes you anonymous when you’re surfing the internet, protecting your privacy.

To outsmart e-commerce shops with a VPN, you need to understand their strategies. One of these is ‘dynamic pricing’, a form of price discrimination. An online shop will typically show an individual from a high-income region higher prices and a lower-income region lessened prices. This strategy is used to maximize the shop’s revenue.

If you have a VPN, you can beat dynamic pricing by clearing your cookies, cache, and browsing history from your browser to erase any trace of your identity. You can then switch to the incognito mode or private browsing, change your location to that of a low-income region to check if lower pricing is offered for those residing in these areas.

With this tip, you can even save money on hotels and flight tickets if you’re a traveler.

2. Request a Rebate

Have you ever purchased a product only to find out the price fell significantly after a couple of days? This could get you annoyed at the fact that other consumers would pay less to enjoy the same service. If this happens to you, you can request a rebate from the online shop from which you made your purchase.

However, you’d have to check the shops’ policy on the maximum number of days after delivery before you can request the rebate. Shops like Amazon state that a customer can request a kick-back 7 days or less after product delivery. 

3. Use Comparing Apps

There are applications, plug-ins, and extensions out there that can expedite the process of visiting different websites to get the best deals. In an arranged view, the app would display the cost of the same product from various shops. Some of these price comparison apps could even show you if there are active coupons or discounts on the products or services.

Conclusion

Shopping has changed from what it used to be a couple of decades back. Anyone with money can now order products and services with a few clicks. 

To enjoy online shopping better you could use certain tips to purchase products and services at lessened prices. You could use a VPN, price-comparison apps, haggle with customer care, and request a rebate from the online shop.
