You will save more money
I’m not sure if it is because brands want you to be using their website, but there are often more ways to save money online than you would if you shopped in the same brand’s store. There are incentives for money off for purchases, as well as discounts when you sign up to their mailing list. Often there will be free delivery when you spend over a certain amount on the website, which is going to mean paying less than you would if you’d bought the same things but had to drive and park. So there are many ways to pay less when you shop online. And who doesn’t want to save money when shopping?
You can even get cash back!
That’s right; you can save even more money when you shop online, by looking around on other websites. So as well as exclusive discount codes from the brand’s own website as above, you can look for more money on other sites like cashback sites like www.quidco.com or couponing sites, similar to www.dontpayfull.com. So in many instances, you can get a discount off the price but also get a certain percentage back after the purchase as cash back. It might mean taking slightly more time to see what the best deals are, but it can end up being totally worth it.
You have more protection when you shop online
As long as you use a credit card to make any purchases, you are actually going to be covered better doing that and shopping online, than you would be in a store. First of all, you can claim against the credit card company if something never arrives. So in the rare chance that you order something and it is never delivered, you can claim back. It is something that all credit cards offer, and that debit cards don’t. It is also protection against fraudulent purchases, so if you have worries about entering your card details online, you have that protection. A lot of credit cards also offer their own warranty protection too. So if you’re buying things like tech goods online, then it could be offering you extra coverage if it gets damaged in transit, or after it has arrived. So as you can see, there are plenty of reasons to do your shopping online!
