Everything costs more right now, so I thought I’d review what you can do to buy stuff for less.
I’ve covered a few things before, like cashback sites such as topcashback who give you money back on purchases from many websites, price checkers and alerters like camelcamelcamel to check the price history or set a target, but now am going to cover voucher sites.
Voucher sites search for online vouchers around the web so that you can use them for your purchases. Examples are vouchercodes, vouchercloud and myvouchercodes where you search for your retailer and see what vouchers are available. Some times you can get the voucher direct – other times you need to supply an email address.
Paypal has bough Honey, who provide an add-on for your browser. This looks for online deals while you shop and applies vouchers automatically at checkout. For some retailers it also has ‘Gold’, which is a way to get points that can be exchanged for gift cards. Just sits in the background and does its job.
Remember that you can also try to combine all these methods.
