With many awesome online sales going on this month, here are a few simple tips to the get most bang for your buck:

1. Store your points or vouchers to get money-off deals leading up to a sale

At times, you get vouchers or points after spending, which you'll usually use on your next purchase. However, if the codes are far from expiring, store them for the next big sale! 

You can use these vouchers or points to get additional discounts during a sale, letting you save more in the end. 

Having said that, be certain about whether you can stack your vouchers or codes, as some online sites may not allow you to do so. 

2. Keep a lookout for any hidden promo codes or deals upon purchasing

How many of us spend something online, only to find out we missed out on an extremely good deal? Been there, done that!

Before you complete your order, make sure to keep a lookout for any hidden promos online. You may end up saving a few bucks using the promo codes!

3. Don't buy the first thing you see

Many times, we see a product we like and immediately make a purchase without really thinking twice. What's worse is chancing upon a different store that offers the same product at a cheaper price. 

Instead of deciding on the first thing you see, add it to cart and then check elsewhere. Only make your intended purchase when you're certain that there are no other stores selling the same product at a cheaper price. 

4. Buy more if it means you can save more

If you buy only a certain amount or less for some shopping sites, you'll be imposed an additional charge. One trick is to look through the retailer's terms and conditions. At times, if you spend a bit more, you could avoid the additional charge, or perhaps a discounted or even free delivery!

Keep a lookout for any deals that let you save more when you spend more. And before you complete your order, be sure that your total bill is less than it previously was.
