But till then spend minimum amount to cut down shipping charges, for this you can make a list of products which you want to buy and order them from your favorite store.

Where you can browse coupon codes in different ways like – use search bar, popular coupons, latest coupons and most popular stores. Most popular stores section is a page where I can browse discount coupons and offers for any online store e.g. Myntra Coupons to buy product at best price. To check the validity of the coupon code you may find green tick mark with the quote “tested on dd/mm/yy”. People usually give hit to like button if they find offer useful for them. You may check the valid coupon at first sight on this basis. This way you’ll be able to make extra savings like me.

  1. Buy items directly from craftsman / artificer

We all love to decorate our home. For this, we buy different things like handcraft and vintage things. You can increase savings by shopping through a site like Fab Furnish or Etsy. Such sites showcase handcraft like hand bags, vases, artificial jewelry, wooden work, wall lamps etc. made by talented artists. These sites give you opportunity to items directly form artificer, there is no middleman so no commission fees. If you buy products from local craftsman, you save big on delivery charges.

  1. Use credit card reward points or cashback offers

Now a days credit card companies have different strategies to engage customers to buy through their credit cards. When you pay through credit card, you get reward points. After getting minimum reward points you may spend these to buy any item available in credit card mall or shopping site. In India ICICI bank has such a system where you can collect reward points while shopping through their credit card and redeem these earned points to buy product from their online shopping mall.

Apart from this, some companies / banks offers cashback offer, when you use their credit cards. For example State Bank of India (SBI) provides 5% cash back if you use credit card for shopping.
