Saving More by Shopping Online!


There's a common misconception that you spend more when you shop online. Shipping and handling can cost a bundle and you may not find every deal you're guaranteed in-store. While it's a convenient approach to shopping, customers looking to save may shy away from web sites in order to pinch a few pennies. Let's give internet shopping a good name with five reasons it's better (and more affordable) to shop on-line.

1. Competition: The internet has made everything convenient. Both retailers and customers know this. With a click of the button, customers can find a similar or exact product for a reduced price on web site #2 than found on web site #1. Because of this, many on-line retailers keep their prices low to match the deals of their competition. It's a system that works perfectly for the customer.

2. Tech Deals: A secret traditional retail stores don't want their customers knowing is that better technology deals (and a vaster supply) can be found on-line. So if you're shopping for tech gadgets, don't go to your favorite retailer, as you may end up spending more. Instead, go to an online merchants for the best deals.

3. No Sales Associates: A term I refer to as "sales associate pressure" is when an employee pressures a customer into buying items they don't need. They often entice the buyer with "can't miss" deals, but deal or not, it's still an item the customer doesn't need. When shopping online, you get to take the time to figure out what items you need, and no sales associate will pressure you into buying what you don't.

4. Convenience: It's not going to help you save money, but it is the number one reason people take to the internet for their shopping. For that, I felt a necessity to include it to the list. And let's not forget that by staying home to shop online, you will end up saving money on gas.

5. Lower Prices: Retailers that do their business online don't have to worry about many of the responsibilities that traditional store owners must face through owning a building: the cost of the building space increases over time, as does utilities and hiring employees onto the team. To make up for these costs, some retailers hike the prices of their goods and the customer suffers. On-line retailers don't have to worry about this, and in many cases their lower prices reflect this.
