I really love shopping online (especially now while lockdown). Do you now any tricks to save money shopping online? I know there are coupon sites with promo codes, but maybe there are more ways? Waiting for your answers! Thanks :)
I always! always! look for coupons or codes. A lot of the time if you join a website’s emailing list they send a welcome coupon code.
Also I always compare prices on other websites by googling the product I’m looking for.
I always try to find the products I’m looking for here in Australia. So postage is quicker and sometimes cheaper.
Try downloading Honey
Is it free?
Yes, Honey is free! It's a browser extension, you can find more info on how to install it here https://help.joinhoney.com/article/170-how-do-i-install-honey I've found that sometimes the codes on Honey are expired but it's always worth a shot. I also use Shoptagr (another browser extension). It lets you "bookmark" items (on almost every shopping website) and lets you know when they go on sale or come back in stock.
Oh wow. That sounds awesome. Thank you for the heads up :) I’ll have to look into both of these.
Do you find that Honey works? I find it's a hit and miss at times - but would love your thoughts?
I bought most of my products from https://luxondemand.com/. Not gonna lie, I didn't hope to receive my items at first but it did came (Yay!) I received a coupon code from them and was told not to share it but here it is; Code: LUX50 .
Try and use it as soon as possible as i'm not sure how long it will be available. I don't own the code. Enjoy :)
The above post looks like spam. I checked the website and it looks dodgy. It doesn't have a country, contact phone number etc. From my brief look, they might be promoting an e-book.
I've marked it as spam Petal. I'm pretty sure Beautyswan has posted elsewhere and listed a different website under the guise of being helpful.
This is what I do personally:
Use OzBargain to check current deals and codes, and also reddit Australian beauty subs to check for beauty offers.
Use a cashback provider Shopback or Cashrewards- and use them to click through to the site you are purchasing. The price you pay will be the same, but you get a portion of commission that usually goes to search engines/other affiliate sites back into your own pocket. Many big retailers like Adore Beauty, Look Fantastic, Sephora, The Iconic, ASOS etc, are part of these types of cashback programs. Percentages you get back range from 1%- ocassionally a whopping 30% when there are special cashback offers on. I once got 20% off ASOS and 20% cashback after to effectively bring down my The Ordinary/The Inkey List haul down to 36% off. :)
Check for new customer offers from the retailer website. Sometimes signing up for the newsletter or using a referral code will give a discount for first time users.
Nice, will check this out!
Sign up to sites newsletters as they often send out codes and give you a heads up on sales...
Honey is great little online tool that saves a lot of $$$$$. I have used it and its work like a charm and it has saved me a lot of money, for example a couple months ago I was shopping for some gifts for some people and I totalled my shopping to about $60 or so, Honey took off about $21 off and that saved so much for me :)
It works on most sites and even if its taking off $10 off it's worth it.
PS. it's a free tool with no catches
I second this! It essentially goes through all the promo codes that a particular site has on offer at the time so it doesn't work all the time (i.e. if the site isn't currently offering any discounts) but it's so satisfying when it does find something!
Thanks beauties. I found your comments very interesting and informative.
Hey, I’m also obsessed with online shopping! Tho I have some tips that I usually use:
https://www.joinhoney.com/ - a great extension that automatically finds and applies coupon codes at checkout
https://nordvpn.com/coupon/deal/?coupon=specialcoupon - an app that changes your IP address. To sum up, many websites use something called ‘dynamic pricing’, which automatically adjusts prices depending on your browsing history and location, in other words- these companies charge you more for the same products and services depending on where you are accessing their website from or how many times you view a product.. so when you use NordVPN, the website you are visiting sees the location of this server and not your true location. I use it almost every time while shopping online, this one saved me lots of money
https://www.shopper.com/register - an extension similar to honey: automatically applies the best coupon to your shopping basket, works great!
https://wikibuy.com/ - an online shopping assistant that uses real-time data from its 3 million-plus users to find you better deals. When you decide to buy an item, Wikibuy goes into coupon-checking mode, just like Honey.
That’s all from me, hope that helps you ! Cheers
Thanks hun! Never heard of that NordVPN app, will definitely try out!
Thanks that is great information.
I also search for coupons and offset costs with selling some unwanted makeup on Facebook marketplace.
I've heard of Honey before but haven't used it. Sounds good.
Scoopon! So many awesome makeup, skincare and haircare products for a fraction of the price. Even high end brands, like Too Faced, Becca, Anastasia Beverly Hills etc
I personally loveee using Chrome extensions for online shopping as they pop up automatically when you're on an associated website. The ones I use and trust are:
ShopBack. My main love, haha! They give you a percentage of cashback when you shop on certain websites. Just make sure to read the terms before you checkout to make sure what you're ordering is eligible for cashback. (For 5$ cashback on your first valid purchase use this link: https://app.shopback.com/aus?raf=XE6yWK&slug=referred-signup-bonus )
Cashrewards. I use this one less than ShopBack because I find the percentages are often lower, but it's worth a double check anyway. It's more or less the same system as ShopBack (percentage of cashback based) but there are some stores you can purchase with in real life that give you cashback if you use a linked Visa or Mastercard which is cool. They seem to be adding more and more shops to this in-store service I've noticed. (Get $10 off your first approved purchase of $20 or more using this link: https://refer.cashrewards.com.au/x/J3n8eU )
Honey. As mentioned by many above, Honey is great for coupons. It scans them automatically at your cart with certain online retailers. I do find that sometimes it misses some though so I do normally check via google for coupons too. But it does save a lot of time filtering through various ones for you. I also like that you can earn 'Honey Gold' that you can put toward a giftcard of your choice when you have earnt enough. I recently spent mine on an Amazon giftcard which was a great little reward. (Use this link for an extra 500 honey gold when you sign up via this link: joinhoney.com/ref/s7xvkf )
Qantas Frequent Flyer Points. For anyone that collects Qantas points, the extension on Chrome is a must. A lot of the time they have bonus point frenzys where you can earn quite a lot of points for an average online shopping haul. (Use this link to learn about the chrome extension: https://shopping.qantas.com/points-prompter )
Hope this helps you ladies! The links are mainly referral links so feel free to use or not use at your disposal, but they are all great services and I think they definitely save money and time in the long run! :)
Agree 100% with using the Cashrewards, Shopback and Qantas Points browser extensions to notify you when you're on a site that allows cashbacks/extra points. Their email lists are very helpful too so you can plan your purchases when there are larger cashbacks going on.
Also recommend the age-old trick of adding things to your cart, leaving it and sometimes you'll get an email within the next 24 hours giving you a discount. Also always sign up to the email list before you shop on a new site cause they may have a % off for the first purchase.
Search for the product on Google and click the shopping tab to compare different sites and prices. Sites like Catch and Ebay will often have good prices (but Ebay you would always want to make sure it's a proper seller like a pharmacy or something).
Try having a look on catch.com.au they always have great bargains on makeup and skincare. I also recommend the browser honey as well. Email companies telling them how much you love there products and ask if they can send you a coupon or some samples. Also have a look each week at the new catalogues and wait for a good feel. Hope this helps!!
The very best advice I was given is to ask myself do I need this or do I just want it before I click the final enter button.
When I do that I have saved myself some money as it really breaks that shopping trance that's so easy to enter!
I received this sample in my Beautyheaven show bag. I like moisturisers that contain sun protection as I often forget to apply sunscreen when I go outdoors briefly and it is so convenient.
This review is not part of a trial but my own personal findings.
Love the classy looking lipstick wand and the way the primer is sloped.
Presented in the signature QV blue and white plain packaging and with a convenient pump dispenser, it delivers the perfect amount each time.
