Forget Black Friday or Cyber Monday – you can get best deals with cashback offer every day, every week and every month on products or services you need and you love. Don’t believe it? Here is how to make that happen.
Don’t miss big cashback announcements from your favorite stores
It takes nothing but helps you receive cashback deals as and when they are available with your favorite merchants. But it’s important to know whether the merchant is shipping products to your area. Also, know about the shipping charge, returns or refund policy.
Pay using the merchant’s credit card/wallet
All top merchants like Macy’s, Best Buy, and Walmart issue their credit card. To encourage shoppers to pay using their card, brands often give them access to exclusive deals and offer additional cashback on successful purchases. To purchase on Amazon, use Amazon Pay, on Apple Store, you use Apple Pay and so on.
Delight your closed ones with gift cards
Gift card is one of the best gift ideas. It suits individuals and corporates, and adults and kids and is also appropriate for every occasion – from birthday to anniversary to workplace anniversary and so on. While on the purchase of gifts, you may not get cash back, but with gift card purchase you are most likely to have it.
Plan your vacation with cashback sites
Instead of asking your local travel agents to make your travel arrangements, do it yourself with a trusted cashback site offering great travel deals. On a cashback site like Kiindly, you can find leading travel agencies like CheapOair and Expedia and hospitality leaders like Hotels.com, Booking.com, and many more.
Choose the right time to buy
Even before you’re ready to purchase an item you’re interested in, do your best to track its fluctuating price over time. You can do so virtually with apps like The Traktor as well as physically by visiting nearby malls or outlets. The better you do your homework on price and trend analysis, rather than trying to take shortcuts, the better gets your scope to find the bargaining price.
Socialize with your favorite stores
The good news for bargain hunters like you is that retailers are just as eager to tell you about their deals as you are to buy them. Like the Facebook or Twitter page of your favorite brands or cashback platforms to keep an eye out for any special offers they might post. Sign up for a store’s email list to get offers and news delivered to your inbox. However, don’t subscribe to anything. Being selective, you may avoid getting your inbox cluttered with unnecessary communication.
Look beyond the major retailers
Do not ignore small retailers when it comes to finding daily shopping deals. Invest some time and effort to find alternatives to big guns like Macy’s, Walmart, Booking.com, etc. Not so popular brands are more desperate for conversion or sales, and they often slash their profit margin to get customers in the competitive market. Look for places that might not be featured on price comparison sites.
Wherever you shop, it’s important you don’t compromise on quality. Also, look for after-sales customer service. Before associating with any brand, take a look at its customer experience. Listen what their existing customers have to say about them on Google, Trustpilot, BBB or other independent review portals.
