Hello blog readers,
Most of us have a love/hate relationship with online shopping. It’s convenient in the sense that you don’t have to drive anywhere. However, you don’t know how the item will look on you. I also don’t like paying for shipping. So I tend to google coupon codes. If I decide to purchase, I usually go through ebates.com to get money back. It actually works and I’m surprised that it does!
I tend to see a lot more companies reaching out after you’ve added items to your cart but didn’t purchase yet. I did this for this forever21 top. I really liked it because I saw it from other bloggers but I didn’t know if I really wanted it. So I signed in, left it in my cart and a couple of days later I received 40% off coupon code plus free shipping! I couldn’t say no at that point, plus I had a gift card. In total I paid less than 7 bucks for this top. I must say, it might be worthwhile to leave your cart because you never know what offer they will give you to complete your order. It’s also risky because it might get sold out. I guess it depends on how much you like the item.
