The question is no longer whether or not online shopping is here to stay, it's whether brick-and-mortar stores are going to make it.
In early 2019, the sales volume of so-called non-store shopping, aka online shopping, surpassed the volume of sales at brick-and-mortar locations for the first time in the nation's history. With four out of five Americans now shopping online, this type of commerce is the new normal.
Considering the fact that you and just about everyone else in America will be doing more and more of your buying via computer, tablet, or smartphone, it's important that you learn ways to save money when shopping online, which you can do without changing the types of purchases you make.
Andrew Scarborough, cofounder and chief operations officer of PriceWaiter, said he knows that "everyone is looking to save some money when they shop online right now."
Here, he offers up five top tips to help you do just that.
Use online resources like cash-back websites and coupon and promo code aggregators to your advantage.
Leave it in the cart and play the waiting game.
Time your purchases based on the season or the holidays.
Sign up for emails, newsletters, and select memberships — you never know what exclusive deals you'll be offered.
