Basic Shopping Strategies

Here are some popular shopping tips to help you save money on your next shopping trip:

Visit the mall or store website
Websites will often list dates of special events and sales. Some stores will offer special discounts for purchasing products online.

Join the mailing list for your favorites stores
You can sign up for the mailing list online or by visiting the store in person. Some stores will even email you a coupon just for joining their mailing list.

Look through magazines for store coupons
Prior to your shopping trip, look through some of the most popular fashion magazines, some stores will place a coupon in the magazine that you can use on your next shopping trip.

Shop on Preview day
Many stores have a preview day the day before the actual start date of the sale. If they don’t advertise a “Preview Day,” you might want to check with the store to find out if they will honor sale prices the day before the sale. Shopping the day before will allow you to get first pick of the sale merchandise.

Check Online Retailers
If you tried on that great dress or pants at a store, but the price is out of your budget, write down all the information on the tag and check various online retailers.
