3 Key Ways to Save The Pennies on Electronic Items

Following the recent leak about the new Samsung phone release, many people are excited to splurge on the latest technology that Samsung has to offer. However, new electronics come at a price and according to the Telegraph, parents were spending £3 billion on tech gadgets in 2014, with this number predicted to have skyrocketed in the last four years.

As the amount we spend on electronics continues to increase, many are wondering if there is a way to save money on electronics without missing out on the next big product release. With this in mind, PIWoP, shopping deal experts, reveal the top three ways you can purchase your favourite gadgets, without breaking the bank.

Buy Refurbished Models

As a society, we often feel a drive to buy brand new electronics straight from the store. But did you know that many stores such as Apple, offer the latest electronics at a discounted rate? This is because these models have been returned and fixed by the company to be sold on at a cheaper rate. If you’re looking to buy new discounted electronics, make sure to check the refurbished section before you buy brand new!

Check The Sales

Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Boxing Day are just three of the best sales to find your coveted gadgets at a discounted rate. There are also plenty of sales throughout the year; summer sales, especially during September, are a good time to buy discounted electronics as brands will want to get rid of last year’s stock before Christmas.

Price Tracker Apps

When it comes to finding the best deals on electronics, using a price tracker app is a great way to find the latest gadget at a price you want to pay. Price tracking tools are able to track the item of your choice by monitoring well-known retailers and alerting you of when it changes to the price you want to pay.

Here at PIWoP, we provide a bespoke price drop alert tool that tracks the price of your favourite electronics so you can pay the price you want to pay. If you would like more information about PIWoP, get in touch with our team today via our contact form.

Four Ways To Save Money With Friends

How many times have you gone out with friends, only to realise you have spent more than you originally intended? Organising your finances is important as it helps you budget for the future and saves your money for more important purchases.

With this in mind, here are four money-saving tips from the PIWoP team on how you can save money with friends.

Don’t Throw Change Away

While it might seem like nothing throwing away unused pennies, it’s important to save them. According to Finder, Brits waste £100 million each year throwing away spare change, with 14% of us throwing them in the bin. By looking after your pennies, the pounds will look after themselves; saving you a lot of money in the long run.

Avoid Peak Times

Spending time with our friends is important, but the pounds spent can quickly add up. From travelling by train to eating at a restaurant, avoiding peak times can help you save a substantial amount of money. If you’re able to be flexible with your travelling times, try catching the train after 10AM, to avoid paying hefty peak time charges when you travel.

Dining out doesn’t have to be expensive either. In fact, eating at any time other than Friday or Saturday can actually save you money. Restaurants are more likely to run promotions during their slowest times to try and entice customers to visit.

Don’t Impulse Buy

We all have that friend that encourages us to buy products we don’t actually need. Before making a purchase, try waiting 30 days before buying something. You’ll quickly realise how many impulsive purchases you will have avoided and save yourself some money in the long run.

Price Tracking Tools

When planning a night out with our friends, we often want to make makeup repurchases or find the dress to impress. By using a price tracking tool, you will be able to save money on coveted items by paying a price you want to pay.

Saving money with friends has never been so easy. At PIWoP, low price shopping experts, we provide a price alert tool that tracks the price of the item you want. We scour hundreds of online retailers every 6 hours to help you find the price you want to pay and save you money.

How A Price Alert Tool Can Help New Parents

You have passed the 12-week mark and now it’s time for the excitement to begin; you’re going to be parents! When it comes to new babies, mums and dads spend around £1,000 preparing for their bundle of joy. In fact, according to The Guardian, one in 20 new parents spend more than £3,000 on baby essentials.

Thanks to Instagram and the rise in influencer marketing, new mums are being encouraged to splash the cash on their newborns. However, you don’t need to break the bank to bring a baby in the world. With this in mind, PIWoP, low price shopping experts, reveal how a price alert tool can help new parents cut the cost of preparing for a baby.

Save Money on Repurchases

It goes without saying that there are lots of baby products you will need to repurchase in the first few months. Whether it’s nappies, baby bottles or dummies, finding the best price for these can help cut down your spending and save you money. A good way to find cheap baby essentials is using a price drop alert tool like PIWOP. Using the tool, you can save the products you frequently buy and get alerted when they drop to a price you are happy to pay.

Find The Best Deals

It’s no secret that babies are expensive. Therefore, getting a good deal on cots, prams and other baby essentials is a must! However, shopping around for them can be incredibly time consuming, especially when you have got a baby on the way. Price drop alert tools are a great way to find the best deals on coveted items without spending hours searching for a price you want to pay.

Price I Want To Pay

At PIWoP, we understand the pressure many new parents feel to give their baby the best in life. That’s why we provide a price tracking tool to help them shop on a budget without the worry of overspending.

Tips For Buying Birthday Gifts on A Budget

Giving your loved ones the perfect birthday gift always makes us feel good about ourselves. But while most of us are happy to go the extra mile for our loved ones on their special day, our wallets think otherwise!

When it comes to buying birthday gifts, it’s important to try and stick to a budget. With this in mind, here are three tips from PIWoP, low price shopping experts, on how you can keep your gift sentimental and affordable.

How To Get The Best Price When Shopping Online

It’s no secret that shopping online is now the number one way to save money on purchases. With comparison sites, discounts and free shipping, finding a price you want to pay for the products you want has never been easier.

However, with many retailers being found altering prices during sales and shopping around for deals becoming time consuming, finding the best price can be difficult. With this in mind, here are three tips from PIWoP, shopping deals experts, to help you get the best price when shopping online.

Go Incognito

According to the Wall Street Journal, some online retailers show higher prices to those in higher-income areas and rural areas where there is less competition. This means for Internet users in these areas they will struggle to save money on their essential products due to the price hike. However, by shopping incognito, you can hide your location and find your items at a reduced price.

Shop The Sales

Nowadays, there seems to be a sale every week! This is great for those looking to save lots of money on expensive items such as handbags and discount electronics. After all, shopping during the sales can save you a few pounds and ensure you get the products you want. You may just have to wait a while! Also, be sure to get in there quick to avoid missing out!

Promotional Codes

Found an item at a good price? Before you make a purchase, make sure to check for additional promotional codes. Whether it’s a 10% discount or free shipping, sourcing discount codes is a great way to save money on your purchases. You can even add a plugin to Google Chrome to ensure you never miss another code again.

Price Tracking Website

Price tracker apps are a great way to save money when shopping online. Whether it’s repurchasing your favourite items or a one-off purchase, price drop apps are a great way to scout the best deals online. What’s more, price alert services work with the majority of large online retailers so you can save money on every item you need.

Getting the best price online is now easier than ever. At PIWoP, low price shopping experts, we provide an effective price drop alert tool to ensure you pay the price you want to pay. Our service comes with a free trial (you can PIWoP as many items as you like and receive 2 price drop alerts), after which we ask you to pay £4.79 for a 6 month subscription so we can continue to save you money.

Why You Should Use A Price Tracking App

The summer sales are a great way to grab a great deal on your most coveted items. However, it can also be also be a time where you accidentally pay more than you have to for a product you want. Last year, The Sun revealed online retailers were hiking prices during seasonal sales to make their deals look better. So how do you know if you’re getting a good deal?

Whether it’s a one-time or recurring purchase, price drop apps are the number one way to save money on your favourite items. With this in mind, here’s three reasons why PIWoP, the low price shopping experts, believe you should use a price drop alert tool.
