How to get discounts online

Shopping online is the way to go. No need to pack the kids in the car just so you can fight the crowds in the store. All you need is yourself, your computer and a piece of plastic. 

And in some cases, you may even be able to do without the plastic. In fact, paying without plastic is No. 10 on our list of ways to get a discount on everything you buy online.

Keep reading to see which other strategies made the cut.

1. Chat with customer service

The best way to ask for a discount when shopping online is to open up the chat box on the retailer’s website. Sometimes a chat box will pop up asking if you need help. Other times you may need to unearth the chat option from the contact page of the site. looking for the best deal. Ask if any discounts are currently available. Or, ask if the company ever does free shipping.

There’s no guarantee of getting a discount this way, but it’s a tried and true method that has worked for me.

2. Give the retailer a call

Maybe you’re on a site that still lives in the Dark Ages and doesn’t offer customer service via chat. In that case, the phone is your best friend. As with the online chat, ask if discounts are available or if free shipping is offered. The worst they can say is “no.”

3. Check out coupon code sites

RetailMeNot is the first place I look before shopping online. I find it to be the most comprehensive and accurate source of coupon codes on the web. You can also check out shopAtHome.


4. Sign up for the mailing list

Some stores issue one-time use codes. To get these, you need to be on the VIP list, aka the mailing list. Sign up to receive newsletters from your favorite retailers so you can get discount codes and sales

announcements delivered straight to your inbox.

Just be sure to use a secondary email address so your primary account isn’t overwhelmed by these messages
