Online shopping made cheaper

The profundity of discount vouchers for internet shopping mean it’s usually quite easy to shave pounds off an online shopping trip

The profundity of discount vouchers for internet shopping mean it’s usually quite easy to shave pounds off an online shopping trip. Sites like www.myvouchercodes.co.uk allow you to search for discounts by shop or category.

It’s worth Googling the product you want to buy and 'discount code' or 'voucher code' before entering your credit card details.

Some shops just don’t get involved, however, and one of those is Amazon, one of the giants of the net. Finding the cheapest price can also be tough, because now the site has grown from its book-selling roots to a massive department store, selling furniture, food and beauty products, it often changes products’ prices quite regularly. It also sells multiple versions of some items from various retailers, through the Marketplace option.

But if you sign up to www.zeezaw.co.uk, and enter the products that you want to buy and the price you want to pay, it will monitor Amazon and email you when the product becomes available at that price. The site is free to use.

Students with a valid National Union of Students Extra card can receive 5 per cent off Amazon purchases more easily. Just register the Extra card on the NUS’s website to receive 5 per cent off goods from most of the big departments, including books, DVDs, CDs, sports and jewellery - although there are some exclusions.
