With holiday season ahead, people have already started planning what they are going to buy this year. Considering the fact that you will be flooded with an ocean of amazing deals and discounts, your bank account is sure to take a beating. Here are fifteen hacks and tips to make your online shopping cheaper and better.
1.Make Most from New Signup Bonuses and Referring Friends

Many online retailers, especially those who sell apparel online offer exclusive discounts to new users. We might not qualify for those offers because we might have already purchased from them many times. If you think about it, you can still find a way to grab those signup bonuses or new user discounts. Create new email ID, create a new account, and start grabbing discounts.

2.Refer a Friend Bonus

'Refer a friend' bonus is often overlooked by many of us. As you know, many online retailers offer a bonus in terms of money or discount when you refer one of your friends to them. If you would like to grab some extra cash or discount this holiday season, try referring your favorite online shopping websites to your family and friends or if you are forever alone or don't want to bug your friends, then become your own friend and create accounts with different names.

3.Use Online Shopping Aggregators

Online shopping aggregators are those websites and apps that collect and show you results from all the shopping websites. 'Google shopping' is one such cool aggregator you should be using more this year. When you use Google Shopping to search for a product, it shows you all the stores that are offering that particular product. This way you can quickly find which site is offering the product you are looking for at lower price.

4.Check Deals Websites

Websites/apps like Slickdeals, Fatwallet etc work round the clock to bring good deals to you. They are good because they do all the research for you. If you hate checking every website for discounted products, these websites will come in very handy. Deals websites are just like shopping aggregators, but only show highly discounted products.

5.Search for Coupon Codes

You need to do a bit of research if you have to find out who is selling the item you are planning to buy at lowest price. Almost all online retailers give out and accept coupon codes. In most cases, we aren't aware of those coupon codes that can fetch us extra discount. Sites or apps like Fatwallet are a good place to search some working coupons. 
If you are too bored to do a research, simply use 'Honey' browser plugin which automatically finds and applies best available coupon for the product, at the time of check out.

6.December 18 is Free Shipping Day

We can't buy everything from one website, though we hope we can. Shipping charges are a headache because we may end up not reaching minimum cart value for free shipping. On December 18th, every year, online retailers offer free shipping on all items irrespective of their value. They also deliver your packages before Christmas day.

This is why we love to shop online! The benefits of online shopping are never ending. We shouldn't miss money back offers.

9.Make Good Use of Pinterest

You can use Pinterest to simplify your shopping. Try creating a complete shopping list of yours and pin it to your personal board.

10.Shop for Christmas Trees Wisely

If you want to buy Christmas trees online, you better buy them a month before Christmas, or exactly a day or two before you need them up and glowing. You can get up to 30% discount on them if you start pre-ordering them right now. They are going to be very pricey a couple of weeks before Christmas.

11.Why Not Buy Some Off Season Products?

You can buy off-season items like outdoor grills, air conditioners etc for cheap this holiday season. If you have to upgrade your air conditioner, this is the perfect time. If you can't afford to give fancy and high budget gifts to your friends or family members, giving out off-season stuff is a good idea.

12.Understand Discounts Well

Many of us go on a shopping spree especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, and end up buying many things that we hardly use later. There is nothing wrong in buying an item on sale, if it is heavily discounted, considering we may get our money (or even more) back at anytime if we sell it a couple of months later. 
You usually find apparel at huge discounts, up to 80 percent off. You can find mobiles at discounts up to 30 percent. Anything over 20 percent discount on electronic items is good, 30 percent is great, and anything over 40 percent is a 'steal'!

13.Go Social

If you are not already following social networking pages of your favorite retailers or brands, do that immediately. They are one good place to stay updated with latest deals and offers. They may even throw you some surprise deals or coupon codes. If there is a deal that's worthy enough to buy, retailers are definitely going to brag about it on their social media pages.

15.Send Gifts Directly to Your Friends or Family

When you shop online to buy Christmas gifts for your friends or family members, send the gifts directly to them. Give their address instead of yours at the time of check out. This will help you save some money. Your friends and family members too get their gifts quickly or on time. Only collect those gifts at your home if you want to personally gift wrap them.
