The internet has completely revolutionized the way we shop. Whether it's clothes, gifts or groceries, there's hardly anything that you can't buy online these days. There are more places that you can look to find the best possible deals, and you can do it all from the comfort of your own home. Of course, there are limits to what you can get out of online shopping. As great as it is, there are certain things that make online shopping a little bit less than perfect. Unless, of course, you try out these amazing online shopping hacks!
Amazon is probably the number one place that most people go to do their online shopping. And that means that, for the most part, you simply end up paying whatever price Amazon is asking for a particular product. But it doesn't have to be that. If you find an item cheaper elsewhere then there are is a section in the "Product Details" area that allows you to tell them about a lower price. Then you simply have to wait a few days, and Amazon will often lower the price of their product to be more competitive. This doesn't always work, and it's not a service that Amazon advertises particularly openly, but if you're looking for a good deal on something particularly expensive, then this is a fantastic way to save some money.
Get international shipping anywhere
Is there anything more frustrating that finding the perfect product and then discovering that you can't get it because they won't ship internationally? Fortunately, thanks so services like Skypax, you can bypass this issue. Skypax provides a UK address and allows you to purchase products in the UK no matter where you are. That way you no longer have to be limited by shipping restrictions when you're shopping for that one perfect item.
Leave your cart full
This one only works with certain online retailers, but when it does work, it's well worth it. All you have to do is sign up to a store, do your shopping and then simply leave the items you've chosen in your cart without making any purchases. Then you just have to play the waiting game. The following day, week, or month, you'll get an email from that retailer giving you a little reminder of your full shopping basket. A lot of the time that reminder will even come with a discount to tempt you into making a purchase. After all, retailers would rather you bought something at fifteen percent off than if you didn't buy it at all!
Be vocal on social media
This one only applies if you've actually had a problem with a particular service. If you've used an online store and the customer service hasn't been up to scratch, the best thing to do is be vocal about it on social media. Companies don't want that kind of bad publicity and a lot of the time they will be more than happy to deal with your problem. If the issue that you have is legitimate then there could well be a discount in it for you as well.
