When it came to designing PIWoP, we wanted to create a tool that would help consumers save money as well as save time.
Our tool enables users to list an item they want along with the website it is from and state the price they want to pay for it. When the item has met or fallen below that price, we send you a notification! However, we have plenty more to offer when it comes to money saving advice.
We know that savvy shoppers love grabbing a bargain – the place with the best deals is influencing where people do their shopping now more than ever. Last year it was found that two thirds of British shoppers chose discounted brands such as Lidl and Aldi.
So, here are a few money saving tips for both online and offline shopping:
1 - Be savvy towards what is really most affordable
If you’re wondering how to save your money when doing your food shopping, check if special offers really are saving you cash. For example, sometimes a larger pack of something might be on offer, but you might actually get more for your money if you buy two or three smaller packs of the same item.
2 – Leave items in your basket
One piece of money saving advice that is becoming popular across the internet is to leave items in your basket on shopping websites. While this frequently happens because people abandon their baskets when they see the price or simply forget, it can actually be a way to purchase the product for cheaper. When a website picks up on the fact you have left items unattended, it’s been found that some will send you a discount code or coupon to encourage you to complete the purchase.
3 – Don’t be tempted just because something is on offer
Everyone knows how tempting it is to buy something because the offer seems too good to be true, but remember not to get sucked in just for that reason! One easy thing to do when it comes to knowing how to save your money is to be sensible and quite simply only make the purchase if it’s something you really need!
