Bargain Fever: How to Shop in a Discounted World

How to find a bargain

Looking how to save lots of money? Bargain Fever by Mark Ellwood gives you a step by step process on how to save your dough while shopping. Here are some of tips you will find in this book.

1.Of all the possible ways to get a discount, the best is the spontaneous request.

2.Use an online tool called PoachIt. You install it on your web browser, and when you’re shopping online, it pulls up coupons for that product.

3.Whenever you leave something in a cart online, the retailer will do anything to make you come back that usually means you can expect to receive a promotional email with a discount in a day or so.

4.Just because it doesn’t look like it’s on sale doesn’t mean that it isn’t. And even when it is on sale, you can often wrangle an additional markdown. For example, ask for a "friends and family" discount, which, in many cases, is no longer private and open for anyone to use.

Enjoy the discounts and this book!
