Discounts are often huge, sometimes even 40% or more, so it’s definitely worth looking into.
Buy One Get One Deals and Clearance
It can be very tempting to snatch up a few items the moment your brand announces a sale. But if you can be patient and wait a few days, often larger retail brands will unveil a second, larger sale a few days later. Deeply discounted items, clearance products and even buy one get one free items are often offered during these second-sales.
Sometimes you’ll also find deals like this during the off season for items that aren’t being continued into the next phase. Buy winter items during Spring, Spring items just before summer, etc. You get the drill. Buying these items during the off season can save you huge amounts of money.
There are even entire sites devoted to items on clearance and discontinued or deeply discounted items.
Download the App

In addition to receiving coupons and major discounts, you’ll also receive rewards points, free items and find out about sales days or even weeks before other customers. Of course you can’t download every app that’s out there, but for the stores you frequent often, it’s a sensible idea to use their app.
