We all know how important saving money is. In this economy, who can afford to buy things at retail prices? Nearly everything you need is available online but how do you know you’re getting the best bang for your buck? You worked hard for your money – spend it wisely. There is no reason to spend more money than you need to on things like groceries, shoes, accessories, and even eyeglasses.
We all know to penny pinch and not to give into our temptations (unless our temptation is at a half off sale). When it comes to shopping online, you have to dig a little more to find the deals you want. Finding a good deal isn’t always as easy as inserting your search into Google. Penny pinching takes work but a lot of sites take most of the work out of saving for you. When looking for prescription glasses, read reviews before making your selection. Not every company is created equally.
When reading the reviews, look for coupons. Often times, bloggers and reviews will include company coupons or exclusive coupons for the product they are reviewing. GlassesUSA.com often works with bloggers to review their glasses. They do this so potential consumers will read unbiased reviews. Coupons are usually placed to encourage consumers to purchase products. For instance, if you’d like to take 10% off your next purchase of glasses or sunglasses from GlassesUSA.com, go to their site and use the code: Mommy10 when prompted.
Speaking of coupons, Facebook is a great way to find coupons. Nearly every company, like GlassesUSA.com, has a Facebook page that you can like. GlassesUSA’s Facebook Fan Page often showcases their newest promotions and discounts for their glasses online. Don’t overlook Facebook as millions of North Americans utilize the site for social networking.
Still not finding what you’re looking for? Sign up for newsletters. Companies will often send newsletters to customers with their latest sales. When all else fails – do a Google search. Google can be your friend but you may find a lot of unnecessary links.
