Find Best Deals on Social Media:
You will find many deals on social media and messaging platforms like Facebook, Whatsapp, Telegram, etc. Just do a search and you are good to go. If you find a few good ones, you can share them in the comments below.
You may have observed the Google Ads appearing at the top when searching for something on Google search engine. Some of these ads contain good offers you can use. Moreover, Google shows customized ads based on what you are looking for, your search habits, geographic location, and many other factors. So there are good chances that the ad may be what you are looking for. For example, you can find good offers related to hosting or domain purchase as Google ads on the search results page when you search for “buy domain name” or “buy web hosting“.
Great Deals at Coupon Sites:
There are wide varieties of coupon sites which provide coupon codes or promo codes which provide great discounts on purchases. Go with the popular and trustworthy ones or else your internet privacy may be at threat with malware and spams. Many of the good ones you can find by a simple Google search, but some popular ones are:
Affiliates are the people who promote particular products online and get a commission whenever someone buys the product using their link (called affiliate link). But, if not always, the affiliate links are also discounted links. Buying through that links may save you a few extra bucks. Check out for such websites or persons doing affiliate marketing. For example, if you want to start your own managed website from scratch at a low price then you can use my affiliate link of DigitalOcean. You get $50 bonus after sign up which can easily give you 10 months of free hosting.
YouTube is also a great source to find the best deals online. There are many YouTube channels dedicated to that. You can also ask questions through the comments if you require offers related to a particular category of products. Also, there are YouTube channels which not only share online deals but local deals too.
Have you come across a situation where your friend suggested you visit a particular store to get products with more than normal discounts? You just visit the store, tell his name, and the shop owner generously reduces the price than the usual price. This mainly happens because of trust and for maintaining long term relationship with the customer. This also happens online. If the promoter consciously gives the reference and benefits from it, then he is an affiliate marketer, else it is just a reference.
Deals for Students:
If you are a student, then there are some sites which give good discounts on products to students, especially on educational products. Some of them give you free access after verifying your .edu email address. For example:
This GitHub Student Developer Pack for free (or)
Everything About Entrepreneurship for 50% discount than the normal price.
Find Best Deals Online Through Android Apps:
Android, android, and android everywhere. Many apps in the Google Play Store provide you with a good deal of info on best offers available online and offline. Apps like Paytm, GrabOn, Desidime, etc. are a few of those. Every brand like Swiggy, Uber, Ola, Flipkart, Myntra has their own app but there are also few standalone apps like Paytm Mall, GooglePay, PhonePay with no corresponding web version. Also, note that there are deals which appear only on the android apps and not on their corresponding websites (like the Amazon shopping app). Watch out for those too while finding best bargains.
The Shopaholic Friend:
Meet your shopaholic friend, always ready for shopping, his topmost priority. Just ask him. You can expect the unexpected.
Ask in Q&A Sites Like Quora:
Initially, Quora used to be very informative and but recently it has been spammed by low-quality content. Still, you can find much good info regarding various topics there, online shopping being one of those. Ask all sorts of questions on shopping and offers, and good brains are always there to help you out.
Individual Shopping sites:
Check all these options but don’t forget to visit the main online shopping website from where you want to shop like Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra, Ebay, Snapdeal, etc. They too advertise the offers much through banner ads and videos, especially during festivals and year-end sales. There are also not so popular online shopping sites like PaytmMall, Pepperfry (relatively popular but we often forget to search here) but are genuine and trustworthy. Keep eyes on them too.
Subscribe to a few good email services which deliver good online offers and discounts directly to your email box. Choose wisely else your email box can be spammed with unrelated and useless content.
Other Shopping Tips & Tricks:
- Add a product in the wish list. Some report that it helps them getting better deals about that particular product through message or email after adding it in the wish list. Don’t know how exactly, but you can try to find.
- Discounts on EMI on credit card, debit card and other modes of payment.
- Don’t require a new product? Buy old and used products at a cheap price from Olx, Quikr, etc. especially products like books.
