Laura’s Cheap Trick #23

Check for the Promo Code!

This is along the lines of just ask for the discount.  So you are making your purchase online.  You have carefully compared products and companies and made your selection accordingly.  Now you have navigated to the payment page and they have a enter promo code here space and you think to yourself….”If only I had a code to enter I could save an extra few dollars.”  If you are on the web, it is worth opening up a new tab on your browser and running a quick search.  I make it simple on myself, if getting that promo code requires me to sign up or pass over more information than I feel comfortable releasing…don’t do it.

NOTE: Nothing in this world is free…whether we release a little buying information about ourselves or some other personal data we are paying for the discounts in someway or another.

One great place to check:  http://www.retailmenot.com
