Most juice is for drinking, but not this brand of juice. It is known as “Don’t Drink My Juice” because that sounds funny and a little bit rude, but that’s also a statement. Don’t Drink My Juice does not create and sell fruit juice but e liquid and one certainly wouldn’t want to drink that.
Safety of E Juice
At the bottom of their bio page, Don’t Drink My Juice says clearly that nicotine is an addictive and harmful substance. An adult vaping this stuff might not suffer any harm, but someone ingesting e liquid in the mistaken belief it will taste good could potentially suffer illness or death.
That goes for children especially who, unable to read and not the least put-off by special childproof caps, get into colorful bottles with pretty labels easily unless they are kept well out of reach of even the most adept young climber.
Don’t Drink My Juice operates out of Ohio. It’s comforting to know this is a US company as regulations in this country are quite strict. Do you know how e juice is regulated in other countries? Probably not; most people are dedicated to buying US products even if they are made with ingredients sourced from elsewhere.
Their specialty is quality vapor juice sold at an affordable price. Products contain USP-grade vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) plus flavors made for e cigs particularly. Every flavor has been developed, created, and tested by someone who vapes, so you know the taste isn’t altered in a bad way by the vaporizing process.
They provide an email address: [email protected] Never say the company is not prepared to hear from you with questions or flavor suggestions. Another place to get in touch is Facebook where you can become part of the conversation about e liquid, vaping, and this company with other vapers and current fans of Don’t Drink My Juice.
Don’t Drink My Juice says they are only able to ship to domestic customers at this time. When you place your online order, they expect the shipment to arrive quickly. Order online as there is no physical location.
I didn’t see any security provisions on their site although they allow people to pay by credit card. Don’t Drink My Juice is set up for PayPal transactions, however, which are safe. Products are not steeped when they arrive since Don’t Drink My Juice makes them to order.
There are no “diketones” in their e liquids. Diketones are found in flavorings like butter and cream used to make products such as e juices but also processed foods.
One must test for them in foods according to US legislation because of certain health risks associated with diketones, but in e juice this is a choice made by companies. Don’t Drink My Juice says there are no diketones (acetyl propionyl, diacetyl, or acetoin) in their e liquids.
Juices come in several nicotine levels from 0 to 18 mg and bottle sizes of 15, 30, 50, and 120 ml. There are varying VG/PG ratios available so one can use flavors with multiple types of coil systems from single coils to Clapton and other sophisticated styles.
Flavors at Don’t Drink My Juice
Try a Cannoli Moly or an AR-15 (Apple Raspberry Macaroon). Select Peach Yo (Yogurt) or Angry Pear (just pear). Select from their bestsellers’ list: Strawnana Yo, Malk (Strawberry Milk), and Graham Cracker are among them. The entire list contains 42 flavors plus unflavored e liquid.
There is just one downside I can see in this catalog where e juice costs $5.49 for 15 ml: lack of traditional offerings, though this is subjective. There is no tobacco and only one mentholated flavor which is Blueberry Haze. Most of the selections are at least mildly sweet, there’s nothing with an old-fashioned throat hit.
Otherwise, since that’s the way e juice is going anyway, I’d say Ohio’s Don’t Drink My Juice is worth a try.
What if you can’t be with someone but you want to send the most clear-cut, universal message of love? Blowing a kiss on video will never be the same; not now that Kissenger has been released. This is a blend of two words: Kiss and Messenger.
Kissenger: Kissing Messenger
You can send your love, regards, messages, and almost everything else online. You can send a wink and a nod, but not a kiss. At least, you could not do that before now. Kissenger allows consumers to finally send their love and the closest thing to a real kiss along the wire. There has never been anything like this in the world before now and, so far, no one else has introduced one.
The Kissenger started with an idea propounded in 2011. What if people could send kisses over the internet? Mothers could say good night to their babies. Spouses could connect remotely when far from each other due to business.
The idea developed into a prototype in 2012, a cute device, but one which would go through a number of adjustments before developing into the item we recognize as the Kissenger.
Image: Mixed Reality Lab
If you can imagine a blend of sentiment and academia, then try to picture students at the National University of Singapore developing this creation five years ago. Eventually, this would become a company called Kissengers Pte Ltd., formally designated just one year later.
Crowd-funding and investors would contribute financially to the development of this exciting and interesting product which takes interactive technology to the next level. There is no word as yet on what this will cost to purchase commercially.
Although it started in Singapore, six countries have been involved in its development so far. They are China, USA, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Spain, and of course Singapore. For two years, they have been developing the newest version which was completed in 2015. The firm only offers one product now but in the future, they hope to expand and develop more ideas which are commercially viable.
People Behind Kissenger
Dinos Andreou, BSc is a co-founder and the current CEO of Kissenger. This management accountant has experience with entrepreneurial endeavors, so this is not his first time launching a business. He is also head of finance and business development.
Hooman Samani, PhD is the other co-founder with the title of Head of Development. He is also the founder of Lovotics Research, invented the Kissenger, and heads up technical development. He used to be a research fellow with NUS IDMI, Keio-JUS CUTE Centre. Samani is a robotics experts.
A Word on Lovotics
According to the Lovotics site, this is a new term referring to studies into the way humans and robots interact. It refers to relational possibilities as though robots could “love” the way humans love. Lovotics brought out robots which could love humans and be loved by them, although by “love” one must assume they refer to physical signs such as hugging or kissing.
The Kissenger is a natural extension of this research and something which will no doubt usher in a new flood of research into the capacity of artificial intelligence to show independent human traits.
Powell-Peralta is a skateboard company from the United States. The company, named for its two founders, began almost 40 years ago, at the beginning of the skate-boarding revolution in the USA and Canada. Their products have made a big impact on this sport, introducing the idea that skateboards could be functional but artistic, and constantly furthering the technology of an activity that has proven popular with every generation.
The two men behind this company (now expanded to a larger, multi-generational team) must have known that one day cities all over the world would hear the roll of wheels on cement and the smack of those wheels hitting ground after a mid-air stunt.
Powell-Peralta FLIGHT Decks
In the early part of the decade, Powell-Peralta started exploring the limits of skateboard strength, size, and potential. Their goal was to create a product both ground-breaking and affordable. Powell-Peralta believes they have achieved this feat with their FLIGHT Decks.
Wherever you shop, consumers want everything to be lighter but stronger. Can a combination of this kind be realistic? Original skateboards were made from 7 layers of material, but what would happen if traditions were overturned?
Engineers and technologists frequently discover that, yes, there is tremendous strength in new materials and alloys. FLIGHT Decks are as thin as a smartphone yet stronger than original Powell-Peralta skateboards. This strength comes as a result of using fiber infused with epoxy that does not succumb as quickly to the usual rigors of constant use in all weathers.
Advantages to the Rider
In tests, Powell-Peralta discovered that the lighter board enabled boarders to achieve new feats impossible with heavier, thicker equipment. Their tricks are sharper, higher, and they can do more of them without snapping the board. Longevity adds to the value of FLIGHT Decks by Powell-Peralta.
Made in the USA
Powell-Peralta makes their skateboards or “decks” in a Santa Barbara facility, so you always have the guarantee of US-made quality and standards. Their products are made using items such as fiberglass, maple, and non-solvent based colors with which they create startling graphics. A skateboard from Powell-Peralta is one-part sports equipment, one-part piece of art.
Buy FLIGHT Decks from Powell-Peralta
Shoppers can view products by Powell-Peralta online and purchase them over the internet as well. Know your measurements, however; items are sold in several sizes. The base price for a FLIGHT Deck is $80 featuring only the Powell-Peralta logo in three shades of blue: a rocket launching from blue flames or waves perhaps. This clean image of flight appeals to a wide audience. Items featuring distinct graphics are priced much higher as they are created by an actual person.
Designs from Powell-Peralta
Most of the designs featured on their FLIGHT Decks appear to feature skulls, sometimes grinning skulls; sometimes active skulls. Certain decks feature dragons and people; frogs and tanks. They always boast a formidable array of bright colors so that a boarder and his deck are both works of art at the skate park.
Other Powell-Peralta Products
A deck is just that: the base without wheels. Order complete sets or switch boards on an existing set of wheels. A Custom Complete for about $85 online comes with a Hill Deck, trucks, wheels of various colors and styles, bearings in multiple colors, mini logo hardware, a grip, and risers.
Before releasing their FLIGHT Decks, Powell-Peralta boards consisted of seven layers of veneer which were cold-fused with special water-resistant glue inside an AirLam™ press at the board-making facility in Santa Barbara where all Powell-Peralta skateboards are manufactured.
The AirLam press, according to Skate One, is a low-pressure air bladder which is used to laminate hard rock Maple from the United States; seven plies at once, creating exceptional strength. A special glue prevents plies from coming apart on a rainy day.
A real plan for fitness in 2017 starts with an app, but leads to sweating for real. GuavaPass, the biggest Asian fitness community, offers a variety of classes for just $159 (Singapore Dollars) every month.
With the GuavaPass, you can find out what’s happening in each city and visit a studio close to where your travels have taken you. GuavaPass was launched in 2015. View team members on the website where you will find men and women with diverse backgrounds whose interests in sports and fitness are diverse.
Love to Travel?
Is travel part of your job or maybe just an element of your lifestyle? GuavaPass fitness clubs are located all over Asia, and use of the membership is permitted at any club in the partnership. There are studios in Singapore, Seoul, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Manila, Jakarta, Beijing, and Dubai.
That’s a wide enough net to capture an audience of thousands of people eager to improve their fitness. The list of studios is wide enough to prevent boredom.
Types of Classes
Teachers guide their students through low and high impact classes. They are energetic boxers and graceful in their yoga poses. Participants join spin classes and Pilates classes. There are loads of fitness styles represented by the workout clubs on an extensive list available to those who sign up for membership. Follow your own path so that exercise will always be enjoyable and you won’t be tempted to let another day go by without working out.
The people behind GuavaPass chose studios personally based on standards of excellence. They looked for studios where trainers offered many types of classes like the ones mentioned above plus Muay Thai, Crossfit, and dance fitness.
They also offer something called GuavaPerks. One can’t learn a whole lot about the perks without signing up. Basically, members can buy products from health-related partners promoting holistic benefits, perhaps at a discount, thanks to membership. Partners include Ash be Nimble, Prana, The Meat Club, Afterglow, and Ashely & Co.
Let the Fitness Commence
Start by signing up and creating an account. Next, select a plan (GuavaPass or GuavaLite), and search for a class on your phone or PC. Classes must be booked in advance or participants pay the drop-in rate.
After all, fitness and discipline go hand in hand. That’s one way in which GuavaPass differs from gym membership where one can drop in without a reservation as long as he or she has bought a punch card or membership.
What Is GuavaLite?
Usually, GuavaPass entitles members to three classes each month at each studio. GuavaLite costs less and only entitles each member to 4 classes each month across the range of studios. Members can only attend one class per studio for a total of 4 classes to be taken within that single month.
Classes cannot be carried over but top-ups are permitted for an extra cost. Easily book online from your handheld device or PC. Members of GuavaPass must bring a form of photo ID or ID issued by the government.
When you book online, more information will pop up. Find out what to bring for each class and how to dress. Specific rules about the maximum number of classes at individual studios might vary, so read instructions carefully. Otherwise, if you’re planning to spend a month in Asia, make it a month of fitness and fun with GuavaPass.
Apple’s new device reflects their ongoing interest in creating light electronic products that customers can take anywhere. AirPods are unlike any headphones you have tried before. Their design is seamless and the technology behind them will take your breath away.
No More Wires
Regular, wired headphones are messy. They get caught in things, twisted, and pull out of our iPod Shuffle. When you go for a jog or walk on a chilly day, there are layers to consider; layers you want to take off as you warm up.
Undoing the mess is time consuming and interrupts the flow of exercise. Parents have to keep their wired headphones away from small children with a penchant for wrapping themselves and their siblings in anything long and flexible.
Little Ear Plugs with Posts
What do they look like? AirPods are like the ends of traditional ear buds.
The difference is that, where the cable would be, Apple has installed a short, stiff post. It’s about an inch long; just enough to hold the item and place it in your ear or take it out. AirPods are white to match all of your devices and so you can find them more easily than, say, black ones. A letter “L” or “R” indicates which ear to place them in. With their tiny speakers and other features, these resemble Lilliputian alien beings.
Apple AirPods can be connected to any Apple device. In fact, they automatically connect; users don’t have to turn them on. Listen to music on your iPhone. Hear alerts on your Apple Watch as you cycle. Skype mom and dad on the iPad or watch a movie on your home computer.
Apple’s virtual assistant is available from their AirPods too. All you have to do is double-tap one side of your wireless headphones and she is ready to get to work. Activate Siri and get directions to the nearest shop for a bottle of water.
Make a phone call, asking a friend to pick you up when you strain a muscle. Change your music playlist as the current one starts to bore you. Ask for louder music where traffic is noisy or lower volume along a quiet route.
AirPods can tell when the user has started talking so that background noise doesn’t come through; just your voice. When you want to listen again, AirPods know that too. They contain a special chip, the W1, which performs an unimaginable amount of work for something the size of a very small fingernail.
Talk, listen; do it all with the W1 chip. This little device contains visual sensors and a device for measuring acceleration. The W1 knows when the earphones are in your ears so they start playing then and not before. That’s not just a detail but an important energy-saving feature.
Long Battery Life
Apple conserves energy even though their battery will last 24 hours. Enjoy up to 5 hours of music after the AirPods are fully charged but use the recharging kit to keep them going. Place the AirPods in a special charging case which holds enough banked power for 24 hours of use overall. That’s a full day of listening with a few short breaks of about 15 minutes to replenish power for 3 hours. Not bad, as long as you remember to recharge the wireless charger.
You would happily reattach the wires if wireless sound was crummy, but compromise is unnecessary. Apple AirPods emit a beautiful sound. Audio quality has been optimized for anything you want to listen to: an action movie, workout music, or the sound of a loved one’s voice.
No controls are necessary to change which device you want to use. Just turn off one and turn on another and Apple AirPods connect.
No matter what your economic background is, everyone welcomes a good deal. Retailers know this fact and periodically offer good discounts to their customers to increase customer satisfaction. Hence shopping online coupons are offered by retailers to help their customers save a lot of money.
Here are 4 simple ways to win the world of coupons for the maximum savings (we offer more tips on this page):
- Get a hold of good coupons
Visit your favorite online retailer’s websites often or join their email or newsletter list to get the latest coupon codes.
Keep an eye on their social network pages like Facebook or Twitter for random coupon codes that the stores might surprise their followers with.
If the above direct ways are not helping you out enough then just browse through websites holding large databases of coupons.
Finally, if you cannot get hold of free coupons, sometimes it is still a good idea to buy coupons keeping in check that their prices are almost close to nothing as compared to the discount they are offering.
- Use them wisely to maximize savings
Many stores allow their customers to stack up on their coupons. Therefore, use multiple coupons on the same item to save more money.
The order in which you use your coupons also makes a difference. Sometimes a ‘percentage off’ coupon followed by a ‘fixed amount coupon’ gets you the better deal than the other way around. Therefore, do a little math before checking out your shopping cart.
- Use them at the best time
Make sure that you do not use your coupons when you suspect that there has been a random hike up in prices of items. Keep a track of the price tags and buy when the prices seem to be just right.
It is also a good idea to use your coupons, like these ones on this site, when there is already a sale or clearance going on provided your online retailer allows you to use your coupons on already discounted items.
- Use them for the right things
Do not shop just for the sake of using coupons codes. This will lead to wasting of money and collection of items you end up throwing away.
Make a list of things you really need or will use in the future and concentrate on the coupons for such items.
Keeping the above pointers in mind, no shopper should be wasting money when using coupons. Using a bit of intellect and organization can help you use your coupon codes in the best possible manner.
If you are one of those shoppers who has not yet used coupon codes when shopping online, then no need to worry. Here are some of the main queries regarding this phenomenon answered in the simplest manner.
WHO should use coupon codes?
Anyone looking for discounted prices can avail benefits from the usage of coupon codes. If you are on a tight budget or simply want to spend smartly, coupons can come in very handy in these cases.
Furthermore, customers who are on the lookout to buy items in bulk may benefit immensely with the use of coupon codes. Coupons for bulk buying offer unbelievable discounts where most of the time you will end up paying for multiple items for the price of one.
Additionally, if you always back off from online shopping because of the hefty shipping prices, free shipping coupon codes can help you finally check-out your shopping cart.
WHAT can coupon codes do?
Coupon codes come in a variety of shades and offer a vast range of discounts (click here for more on that). Coupon codes can help you get:
- a ‘dollar off’ discount which translates to a fixed dollar amount of from the price of an item you are interested to buy.
- a‘percentage off’ discount which translates to a certain percentage off from the price of an item you are interested to buy.
- free or discounted shipping.
- a certain percentage discount on a second item you buy from the same retailer. The discount on the second is 100% in buy one get one free coupon codes.
- free gifts.
HOW should the coupon codes be used?
Coupon codes should be used very wisely. Do not let yourself get trapped in the spending mindset just to use the coupons. Use coupon codes for items you really need, like we instruct on this page.
Furthermore, coupons should be used in such a way that they give the maximum amount od discounts.
For instance, if the retailer lets you, you can use coupons during sale time to help you get additional discounts. If an online store allows stacking up of coupon codes, use them in the right order to save the most money.
These three main questions and their answers encompass the most basic definition of coupon codes for first-time users. Furthermore, as in most cases, practice makes perfect. Hence, the more you use these coupon codes, the more of a pro you would become in saving money.
Nowadays, every other person we meet seems to be in a saving mode. With the growing instabilities in economies around the world, many people have an increasingly tighter budget and are constantly on the lookout for ways to save more money.
When shopping online, as much as choosing the right types of coupon codes (like these ones) can help in saving money, the time when these coupon codes are used and what they are used for also plays a vital role.
Here are a few ways to answer the question of ‘when to save your coupon codes for?’:
When the prices are not hiked up!
Some online retailers might increase the prices of their items and then offer deals on them. For instance, an online retailer might offer a 30% discount coupon code after actually hiking up the prices by 30%. In this scenario, the customer is really buying the items on the original prices.
The fake incentive of a discount entices the customer to buy more just to avail the benefit of the coupon code. While in fact he or she is really buying everything on the original price.
Therefore, be aware of this kind of trap. Keep a casual lookout at the prices of your favorite products and avoid using your coupon codes when you see unusual price hike ups.
When the deal is not trapping you into buying more uselessly.
Many times the coupon codes with the offer of buy one and get the second 50% off might be actually forcing you to buy things that you actually do not need.
If you are sure you want the second item, then only go ahead and use such a coupon code.
When you know multiple offers can be applied to the same item.
Many retailers allow you to use multiple coupons or discounts on the same item. If that is the case it is best to save your coupons for a time when you have two or more coupon codes that can be used on an item for maximum saving.
Equally, you can also wait for a sale to come up, to use your coupons on already-discounted items to further your savings.
Keeping the above points in mind (as well as these) will help you utilize your coupons in the best optimum way. However, keep track of your coupon’s expiry date if it has one and uses it well within the time limit.
The online virtual world is a large span of endless possibilities in all aspects of our daily lives. Shopping is one such aspect of our lives which has always been a necessity, a social behavior or just an activity to pass time. With the advent of this facility in the online realm, a world of opportunities and ideas has been opened up for both the retailers and the customers.
One of the main attractions to a shopper is the ability to save as much money as possible. Apart from the traditional clearance sales or season sales, online shopping also offers the use of coupons.
Now there are two ultimate secrets to using these coupon codes effectively for the maximum discount. (Go here for more!)
First, search for the perfect coupon for yourself.
Keep an eye open for free coupon codes on the website of your store of interest.
This seems quite convenient. However, if this is not available then research a bit on coupon database websites.
You can simply search through their database by entering the name of the store or brand. There are many automatic coupon finder websites which enter the codes you filtered in the promo code box and test them automatically to display if the code actually works or not. This prevents you from wasting time on bogus or expired coupon codes.
Another way to get hold of worthy coupons is by signing up for emails from your desired retailers, like on this website you’re visiting. This you can do in store or online and as a result you will always be updated with latest promotions and coupon codes.
Last but not the least, try the social avenues like Facebook and Twitter. If you like or follow your desired brands or retailers on these social networks, they will often send you updates on their ongoing and latest promotions and coupons.
Secondly, make sure the usage of coupons will benefit you.
Always keep in mind to check the total of your purchase once with the coupon codes and then without the coupons, with items on original price.
The reason behind this is that many promotions using these coupon codes add restrictions on the minimum which needs to be spent to avail the coupon. In such a case you might end up spending more than needed.
To sum it all up, find the right coupons, know all the benefits and limitations and use it to save more and more!
Online retailers are becoming aware of the increasing number of customers who are on the lookout for deals and discounts while shopping. Some of them can very well misuse this fact and trick the customers to actually spend more than they need to by just giving them the incentive of getting discounts by using coupon codes.
Here are a couple of such ‘tricks’ or rather spending ‘traps’ to watch out for when using coupon codes (also click here for more tips on coupon usage):
- Retailers might offer you with crazy deals on items making them almost free or actually free. However, when you actually pay a little more attention, you will realize that the accessories which might be needed to make these items fully functional come with a hefty price. Therefore, in the long run, you end up paying more for that particular ‘free’ product.
- Control your nerves when you feel like using your coupons for the same item which might be going on sale repeatedly. This will lead to a massive surplus of items if the demand for it is just not present. For instance, 50 bottles of ketchup stuffed into your kitchen cabinets will not really save you much if you end up throwing them away after a while.
- Watch out for coupons codes offered by online retailers (click here for a list of all our retailers’s coupons) after an increase in the actual prices of the products. If for example, there is a 25% coupon available and you feel like the prices of the items have been roughly increased by 30%, then steer away immediately. This is just a temptation into spending more for items which could have been bought for a cheaper price.
- Deals which put a certain limit on your total purchase might force you to buy extra things. Therefore, make sure you actually need these items before spending the extra money on them.
- Some coupons have a very tiny print somewhere in the corners to let you know that there is actually an expiry date. Therefore, you might miss it completely or it will not stick in your mind till it is too late. Especially if you bought the coupon it can lead to waste of money. Hence be vigilant about these dates.
In brief, avoid splurging into useless spending. Always look at the bigger picture while shopping. Once you have understood these traps then start shopping away with proper coupon deals and actually saving tons of money!
I am sure most of us cannot deny the joy of buying a product for a less than the original price! It is a satisfying moment where you feel that you are on the winning side of the deal. Nowadays, with the drastic increase in online shopping, online retailers are increasingly using coupons to enrich the shopping experience for their customers.
Hence, for example, you are shopping online from the comfort of your home and finally arrived at the checkout page. After a long time of carefully choosing and comparing your buys, you are baffled by the “Insert Promo Code Here” boxes. You know it is something you want to but you are completely clueless about how to use this option efficiently.
Well let’s tackle this world of coupons in a few easy steps:
- If you do not have online coupons, find out an online coupon database like those found on this website which offers coupons from your desired stores and brands.
- Before you go on a hunting and comparing mission of your favorite products, for instance, the right shoe for you with the right price tag, visit these online coupon databases. They will give you a fair idea of which brands are offering the right deals and will also go a further step to display comparisons of different deals.
- Do not procrastinate in shopping! If you like a deal and if it seems really attractive, don’t wait too long. There might be scores of other users interested in the very deal which could end up in the deal ending due to sold out items. Deals also come with an expiry date which needs to be noted.
- Make a list of all the things you want before embarking on this journey of saving money. Many retailers offer their customers more discount when they purchase more. So basically the more you spend the more percentage discount you get on it. Hence shop smartly and try to buy your required products from the same retailer all at once to save more.
- Keep a lookout for online retailers which allow you to use multiple coupons on the same item (a strategy we also discuss on this page). For instance, using a promotional code with a sale item. This can result in amazing buys and a truly pleasurable shopping experience.
Now your online shopping experience along with these no-brainer usage of promotional codes will get your shopping right to your doorstep effortlessly and with a discount!
Generally speaking, when thinking about saving money, the normal perception is that it takes a lot of work. However, when shopping online and especially when using online coupon codes to save money, the whole procedure is relatively effortless.
The whole idea of saving money by using coupon codes online starts of with acquiring the right coupon codes which will give you the maximum benefit.
Some of the types of discounts catered to by using these coupon codes are as following:
- A fixed amount off of your purchase. This is very convenient when purchasing items of low costs. For instance, $3 off an item worth $10 is a good discount compared to $3 off an item worth $100.
- A percentage amount off your purchase. This is very convenient when purchasing items of a high price tag. Since if it is an item worth less, let’s say maybe $10, a 35% discount will save you only $3.5 while an item worth $100 will result in a $30 discount.
- Sometimes coupon codes, like we cover on this site, do not offer any amount off of the item you are purchasing but rather offers you with discounts on shipping fees. It might be a fixed amount off, a percentage discount or even free of cost!
Once you have found your perfect pick from the pool of coupon codes, you can start using some of the following tricks to maximize discounts.
- Combine and compound your discounts. This is only possible if the retailer you are dealing with allows for multiple coupon codes to be used on the same item. If this allowance is available, you can go ahead and save more by trying your luck on stacking different coupon codes to increase the discount. The most common example of stacking of coupon codes is the combination of a code for discounts on items with a code for discounted or free shipping.
- Save more by buying more. Many retailers offer a greater discount if you purchase more from them. If you have a shopping list where all the items can be bought from the same store online, go ahead and buy them at once for a large price cut at the checkout page. Just beware of extreme couponing, which we discuss in this article.
Once you have an idea of where to find the right coupons and how to use them for maximum discounts, the whole saving money procedure is quite effortless. So start clicking away and saving money!
Everyone wants to save money and get the best deal on the things they buy. Using online coupons whilst shopping online is a great way to save money. However, is there anything such as extreme couponing?
Yes, definitely. If a shopper ends up buying things they do not need or even worse, things they should not buy, in large amounts, just because they want to use a couple of coupons, it is definitely extreme couponing. In such cases, coupons would lead to wastage of money rather than saving.
The result of extreme couponing is hoarding and stockpiling of unnecessary products and a waste of time. Just because you have a coupon does not mean that you can buy anything and everything to save money.
Here are a couple of ways you can avoid extreme couponing in order to save money (also click here for more coupon strategies):
- Make a list of things you really need or will be able to use in the future effectively. If you do not keep such a list in your mind, you can end up buying things you already have in store or do not need just because you have the incentive of getting discounts.
- However, if you use coupons to avail deals to stock up on items which you will use and need in the near future you can save a lot of money. For instance, if you stock up on non-perishable items such as diapers for a duration for which you know your baby will not outgrow them, you will surely save a lot of money and regular trips to the store.
- Only keep the coupons you know will benefit you and trash the ones which will lead to mindless shopping. This will prevent you from buying large quantities of items just because you have the urge to use a couple of such coupons. This habit usually leads to a massive surplus of items which eventually go to waste or end up using a large storage space. It can be tempting when finding so many discounts like we provide here, but resist the temptation.
- Understand your coupons. Online retailers often have different coupon policies. For instance, some will allow you to stack up coupons or others will allow you to use coupons on already discounted items. Therefore, it is better to retain coupons of such stores while discarding coupons for stores which have rather strict policies.
Therefore, the best way to save money by using coupons is to use them in moderation and for the things you will use.
Gone are the days of only reaping the benefits of traditional sales in stores and the traditional clippings of tangible paper coupons in the mail, newspapers, magazines or flyers at the grocery stores. There is now a whole new world of online shopping.
It is all a lot simpler now. Everything from the comfort of your home. Even saving money! There are online sales and clearances which result in an obvious saving of money. However, use of online promotional codes makes you go an extra mile into saving even more money.
The optimal use of coupons lies all in your knowledge of the best deals on that particular product.
This means that if you have the right information regarding the ongoing promotions, you get the deal, otherwise, you end up paying the full price while your more ‘knowledgeable’ friend paid almost half the price for the very thing! They must be using tactics like these linked here!
It does seem like a lot of work and research. However, once you get the hang of it, using your online coupon codes becomes an effortless endeavor.
The main idea is to find the right promotional code for the required purchase which will help you save money while shopping online. You could do this by searching online on search engines through general search terms or go a bit further with an ultra-specific search.
This will help you find sites which keep track of these codes. These coupon and deal websites, like this site, also show you stores or brands offering similar promotions so you can choose the best coupon code by comparing and contrasting easily.
Whatever the method is the main idea is to research and find the right free coupons from online databases or invest a little and buy them. In the latter case keep in mind:
- In the end of it all, you must be paying less as compared to buying the items on original prices.
- That the site is trustworthy and is not costing you a fortune to buy the coupons. These priced coupons should be very cheap, for instance, an item worth $1500 might have a coupon worth $10 which would give a discount of maybe of $200-250.
Therefore, a little bit of browsing or researching can help you save hundreds or thousands of dollars while shopping online. This is undeniably a relatively effortless way of saving money.
Deals everywhere! Whether it is a festive season, an end of season time or even a store clearance, customers are sure to be baffled by the numerous deals around them. What to choose and what not to becomes a tough decision when everything seems quite interesting.
When shopping online the same puzzling scenario confronts shoppers. When all retailers are trying to lure you into buying from them, it is best to know what each deal is offering and which will help you in choosing the best one when shopping online. The main aim is to save as much money (we discuss many ways all over this site) as possible and this is the main factor in making the decision of which deal to choose.
Online retailers usually offer their deals in the form of online coupon codes. Here are some types of deals which might be offered:
- First Time Shopper Deal
Many online retailers recognize their first-time shoppers and offer them coupon codes for discount deals.
- Total Purchase Deal
The deal here is that the more you spend the more reward you get. Coupon codes with percentage discount on your total purchase or with free shipping with more dollars spent are offered by many retailers online.
- Exclusive Social Offer Deal
Specially designed for social networks. These coupon codes offer deals to shoppers who like, follow or share their brand on social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
- Customer Loyalty Deal
This kind of deal usually depends on a point system. It begins with the shopper registering with the retailer online and then collecting points on each transaction. Coupon codes are provided to customers when they gather a certain number of points. The more points the shopper collects the more discount he/she gets.
- Email/Newsletter Deal
If you subscribe to your favorite retailer’s email or newsletter list, you are sure to get rewarding deals via regular coupon codes like these ones over here.
- Weekly/Monthly Deal
One of the most common kinds of deal is a weekly or monthly coupon code provided to the customer which may be in the form of a percentage discount, a fixed discount, a free gift or even free shipping.
Now since you have a rough idea of which type of deals are available through the online coupon codes and which ones maybe the most lucrative for you, go ahead and enter the world of these interesting deals and start saving money!
On a task of saving money? Want to buy your favorite pair of shoes without burning that hole in your wallet. Just win the world of online coupon codes like we talk about here and you will save tons of money while shopping for your favorite things!
Here is how you can do it.
Firstly, get yourself some good coupons. Go on a scavenger hunt on coupon database websites to end up with coupons which fulfill your needs. You can even buy coupons which offer some great deals. However, make sure the money you put into buying these coupons should be very less as compared to the discount it offers.
There are easier ways to get hold of these coupons such as joining the store’s mailing list or regularly checking their websites for free coupons. Online retailers are always coming up with new ways to provide their customers with coupon codes, therefore, just keep a look out for these.
Secondly, use them wisely.
Make sure you save money instead of wasting money when using coupon codes. Couple of things to look out for:
- If your coupon codes have an expiry date, make sure you keep a track of that especially if you actually bought them!
- Always do math when choosing between ‘dollars off’ coupons and ‘percentage off’ coupons. For instance, if it is an item worth $10, a $5 off coupon is better than a 25% off coupon.
- In cases where multiple coupons can be applied at the same item, it is again better to do a bit of math to conclude in which order the coupons should be used. For instance, for an item worth $100, it is better to use a 25% off coupon first and then a $15 off coupon to save more money!
Lastly, do not shop just to use the coupons. Many deals can only be availed when a certain minimum amount of purchase has been done. Do not mindlessly try to fulfill this criterion just to use the coupon. There is a high possibility that you might end up spending more than saving and that too, on items you actually do not need. It is always smart to have a fair idea of what all you actually need and set a budget accordingly. This way you will not get carried away in shopping, like a woman shopping for shoes (which we discuss here) just for the sake of using your coupon codes.
Now go ahead and conquer online shopping and save a lot of money!
