TIP 1 - BUY DIRECT FROM THE BRAND
Buying direct from the brand means the price you pay can be cheaper as there are no shops involved pushing prices up.
Products that you can buy direct from the brand vary greatly so it’s good to do your research. Shoes & clothing from Nike or Adidas, computers & laptops from Dell and we’ve found a little gem for you where you can buy your personal products directly from: Shelping.COM. This means some of your regular repeat purchases you would normally buy from the supermarket can be bought direct from the brand instead.
TIP 2 – BUY MULTIBUY DEALS
If you’re buying products regularly online (like your supermarket shopping) look at different websites that offer discounts when you buy more than one.
Example – Men’s Body Spray
Normally you might pay £2.50 per can. If you go direct to Shelping.COM, their premium C21M body spray Multibuy Deals start at £1.46 per can. That’s a great saving!
Shelping Multibuys also include dry shampoo from £1.88 per can and one we really like – the Domina Spirit women’s razor from £5.24 as well as many others.
So If you buy something regularly, don’t just rely on supermarkets – look at other sites and find Multibuy Deals.
TIP 3 – USE FREE DELIVERY WHERE POSSIBLE
An obvious one this, but why buy something and then pay extra to have it delivered?
A couple of good examples are Nike.com who offer free delivery on orders over £50 & Shelping.COM who offer free delivery on Multibuy Deals like we spoke about in Tip 2 and also free delivery on any order over £20. Very good in our opinion!
We would always say if you’re within a few pounds of getting to free delivery, buy something extra and save the postage cost making what you buy actually feel a bit cheaper!
TIP 4 – DON’T BE AFRAID OF TRYING SOMETHING NEW
We know you’ve shopped around before and you buy what you buy because you like it. But remember you have to try something for a first time to decide if you like it or not. Think of Mr Heinz when he created his first recipe for ketchup. No one had tried it. No one knew if they liked it. People gave it a go and look at it now!
We apply that principal to online shopping. If you find a brand that is offering high quality products at prices you’re happy to pay where you are getting all the benefits that we’ve spoken about already, but it’s a brand you’ve not heard of before – we say go for it! Always look for reviews of course – they can be great indicators – but go for it and try something new!
Everything has to start somewhere, and you might just find your next favourite thing!
Tip 5 – take advantage of special offers
If something costs £20, or £10 with a special offer– you’d rather pay £10. The thing is, though, decent offers can be hard to find.
Luckily for you we’ve done the groundwork on this. The Shelping.COM offers are fantastic & we highly recommend signing up to have them sent to you.
So to see how all 5 tips can work for you, our advice is to go to Shelping.COM right now. You won’t be disappointed.
