Online Shopping? Snag the Best Deals With These 4 Money-Saving Tips

By avi maxwel / in , , , , , /

In recent years, online shopping has surged in popularity. While there are several reasons for this, convenience is certainly at the top of the list. Online shopping allows you to browse and buy everything from groceries and sundries, to treadmills and makeup in just a few clicks. It also allows you to easily compare prices, so you can save money by getting the best deals (to say nothing of saving money on the gas it takes to get to and from brick and mortar stores).

To help you save even more money, here are four simple tips for finding the best coupon codes, increasing your cash back, and ensuring you get the biggest bang for your buck.

To Snag Coupon Codes: Search YouTube

You probably already know to find money-saving coupon codes at free websites
likes TheKrazyCouponLady.com and RetailMeNot.com via coupon-finding browser extensions like CouponCabin, Sidekickand Rakuten. But there’s a lesser-known way to find even more: Head to YouTube and search for a brand, store, or product you love, plus the phrase “coupon code” (for example, “Ulta coupon code”). Then filter your results by date so you’re seeing the most recent coupons first. Online product reviewers with large YouTube followings (more than 10,000 subscribers) often receive exclusive coupon codes in return for promoting brands in their videos, and they share those exclusive codes in said video and video descriptions.

To Get Cash Back: Install a Browser Extension

Bought an item online only to discover the price dropped a few days later? Great news: If you have a Gmail or Yahoo! email account, you can get the price difference refunded to you when you sign up for the Capital One Shopping browser extension (CapitalOneShopping.com). Not only does this free tool give you cash back and coupons that help you save, it also offers a price protection feature that scans your email for online orders, then tracks the prices of items in your orders for up to 30 days after purchase. When the tool detects a price drop, it automatically requests a price adjustment from the vendor. The difference is then refunded back to the card that you used to purchase the item. To enable the price protection feature after signing up, click on your name, go to “Account Settings,” then “Link a mailbox to track your purchases,” and select an email account.

To Save: Upload Product Photos

When you see an item that you love at an online retailer or on social media, you can find out who sells it for the lowest price in seconds by uploading or dragging and dropping a photo of the item to Bing.com/VisualSearch or Images. Google. com. You’ll get a list of products that are the same or similar, along with where they’re sold and their price. Another option: Upload a photo to TrendGetter.com to find similar items sold at Walmart, or to Amazon.com/StyleSnap to find similar clothing on Amazon. To search Etsy, tap the camera feature

Red carpet fashion moments at the SAG Awards

Best red carpet fashion at the 2023 SAG Awards

From Zendaya to Michelle Yeoh, see the best-dressed celebrities at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles.

As Hollywood’s biggest names gathered for the 29th Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, it soon became clear that they were out to have fun. Sunday evening’s red carpet was alive with playful detailing, sparkling sequins and saturated color.
Among the night’s best-dressed was Zendaya, who wowed in a Valentino bustier dress custom-designed by the label’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli. The strapless gown was embroidered with almost 200 silk roses that formed an elegant train behind her.
The “Euphoria” star wasn’t the only attendee to opt for florals, which ranged from the bold flower embellishments of Emily Blunt’s figure-hugging Oscar de la Renta gown to the subtle print of Stephanie Hsu’s Carolina Herrera look. Paul Mescal got in on the trend, too, with a sheer overcoat embroidered with bejeweled petals.

Sequins and metallics meanwhile brought some sparkle to LA’s Fairmont Century Plaza — whether it was through the glittering hand-embroidery of Danielle Deadwyler’s ombré Louis Vuitton gown or the fringed gold decoration of Michelle Yeoh’s Schiaparelli haute couture gown. “Abbott Elementary” star Sheryl Lee Ralph shone in a shimmering Tadashi Shoji gown and Aubrey Plaza also impressed in a bold midriff-baring sequined look by Michael Kors.

Wearing a flowy Valentino dress, “The White Lotus” star Sabrina Impacciatore was — along with Ariana DeBose, in an outsized Prabal Gurung pantsuit — among several actors to sport hot pink. Others opted for eye-catching shades of yellow, including Viola Davis, also in Valentino, and “Dahmer” star Niecy Nash-Betts, who wore a strapless Vera Wang gown.

Some of the evening’s best menswear also embraced color, with Austin Butler and James Marsden putting their own spin on the black-tie dress code in, respectively, maroon and baby blue tuxedos. And Eddie Redmayne brought some welcome extravagance to the red carpet in a dramatic Saint Laurent blouse and wide-legged velvet pants.
