With Christmas just around the corner, it’s highly likely that you’re going to be spending left, right and centre. Therefore, you’re going to want to look to save those extra pennies where you can. You may have read our previous two blogs sharing our favourite Christmas money saving tips. This week, the experts at PIWoP, price alert service, are going to share with you our top 3 favourite high street secrets that can be used any time of year.

1. Discount codes in plain sight

We’ve all been in the situation where we’ve fallen in love with an item, checked the tag and gasped at the price. More often than not, before a major store is about to hold a sale, staff often write numbers, letters and symbols on price tags. If you see this, hold off purchasing it as the price is likely to be reduced in the near future.

2. Leave items in your online shopping basket

Another handy trick to remember when you’re online shopping is to add one or two items to your basket, completely abandon them and close the window. Keep checking your email account and within the next day or so, you may have a 20% discount code in your inbox waiting for you.

3. Sign up to a price drop alert service

However, if you don’t fancy using the above secrets, simply sign up for a price drop alert service, like PIWoP, and be notified when an item becomes discounted! It really is that simple!
