    More on Internet Shopping

    Friday, September 23, 2005
    There are many ways to layer savings when shopping on the internet. I love using a coupon code when free shipping is offered (and a lot times no tax!) and also getting cashback from a credit card - for example:

    1. 20% off of $100.00 purchase at a great store
    2. free shipping is being offered
    3. no tax
    4. use cashback card (Discover, for instance, offering 2% back - click on Discover link on my site for more information!)
    5. double your reward money by calling Discover for future shopping at one of the many stores that double

    you pay $80.00 and will receive $3.20 towards next purchase = real cost $76.80
    vs.
    paying around $125.oo for the order if you did not use these ideas

    or on $200.00 purchase:

    you pay $160.00 and will receive $6.40 towards next purchase = real cost $153.60
    vs.
    paying around $250.00 for the order if you did not use these ideas

    you saved almost $50.00 in the first example and almost $100.00 in the second example!

    Keep in mind shipping charges vary company to company, as do tax rates. But in either case, it is a fun way to save!
    If you choose some sale items +/or clearance items when shopping you will save even more!

    Live well for less!!!
