Shopping Tips By Meicka “J”

Have you ever made a purchase and days later it goes on sale? Well, the good thing about it is most department stores will honor a price adjustment if the purchase was made within seven days. Following your favorite places to shop on social media, gives you an advantage to sales and various discounts that are not advertised anywhere else. Sites like Overstock.com will price match for you to show lower prices.

Take advantage of free shipping or ship to your local store. Some stores offer free shipping and checking sites such as RetailMeNot.com will provide coupon codes for free shipping and additional discounts. Ship to store is a service that allows you to shop online and pick up at the nearest store rather than waiting a few days for shipment. I have learned that shopping on Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best time to shop for marked down clearance. Most sales typically run Sunday thru Saturday but midweek, new shipment is brought in, and items are placed on clearance to make room for new merchandise. Depending on where you are employed or being a student could qualify you for additional discounts. Stores such as Charlotte Russe, H&M, Ann Taylor, Nike, and Hollister offer discounts for college students, teachers, and veterans. Discounts vary from 10-15% of purchase.
