Attention Shoppers: Discounts in Your Virtual Shopping Cart

Attention Shoppers: Discounts in Your Virtual Shopping Cart

Parking at Newark is maddening. No amount of careful planning can prepare you for the sheer amount of traffic going in and coming out of there. In your average day, Newark airport isn’t part of the regular rigmarole…hopefully. After all, there are much more important things to do. Looking after the little ones and finding a healthy balance between professional and personal life is something we all strive for. These things take time and money. With a little thoughtful preparedness, you’ll have the funds necessary to make all things possible.

I, for one, want to make the most out of everything I do for myself, my husband, and my kids. But nothing is possible without money. They say the best things in life are free, which is true. But finding free stuff has become increasingly difficult in modern times. So, I say the next best things in life are discounts. Coupons, sales, and other savings make my pocketbook and my heart sing. When I find the perfect bedding outfit for Coraline or wall art for our newly renovated bathroom, I seek out how I can make that item cheaper. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

I love coupons. If I don’t have to clip them, the greater the chances of me using them. That said, I do use coupons that are sent to my inbox. Whether you want to save on your favorite product or at your preferred retailer, most companies have discount emails you can sign up for by linking from their website. For me, printing select coupons is a lot easier than weeding them out of the weekly circular. But, if something jumps out at me, I’ll gladly take the effort and whip my scissors out for a worthwhile discount.

Online retailers want your business. They need it. Tempting offers abound as the result. Sign up for email alerts so you know when the deals strike. Locate a coupon or promo code to use upon checkout for savings on just about anything. Store websites offer these incentives to keep you clicking through their array of merchandise so you’ll add things to your virtual shopping cart. Typically, the more stuff you buy, the greater the savings. Save even more with percentage-off discounts, clearance items, and free shipping offers.

Online shopping and instant-savings promo codes are the wave of the future. Sure, who doesn’t enjoy visiting the stores and trying on clothing? Our busy lives so often gets in the way of enjoying the simpler things in life and we often simply don’t have the time to go shopping. With more and more retailers offering discounts for buying online, the satisfaction I get from the sale ranks about the same as trying out a new pair of kicks in the store.

Pottery Barn is my go-to retailer for home furnishings. Well, it’s one of my favorite places to shop. They have just about everything from furniture to décor, from living room to bedroom, and all the places in between. I adore browsing their selection online to find exactly what I’m looking for. And the Pottery Barn promo code makes purchasing that “I want” into a “must have”. Not only that, but when you sign up to be on their email list, you receive a percentage-off discount from your first order. Periodically, they send additional discounts right to your inbox.

Companies are well aware how internet and savings savvy their customers are. In this day and age, if you don’t have an online presence, your business is doomed. Offering shoppers the convenience of shopping at home, PLUS offering savings, keeps retailers profitable while cushioning your wallet. Seek out discounts. Sign up for special offers and coupons. They’re available just about everywhere and on just about everything. The savings will add up to be substantial and your family will thank you for it.

  1. We shop at Pottery Barn all the time. I find the best discounts on their site. I am also a big fan of online shopping!!!

  2. Thanks so much for the great info, tips and promo code. Online retailers rule in my home!

  3. I always do a Google search for coupon codes before I buy anything online. My husband teases me for it, but I’ve probably saved some serious cash over the years!

  4. I live for coupons, so much so that I won’t buy something if I know I have a coupon for it at home.

  5. So true, online shopping is great! Pottery Barn is a fav of mine too- even if you just want to relax and get ideas before heading into the store.
