It’s so easy to get caught up in the hype of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Both come with a bevy of bargains, but some may give you a false sense of security when it comes to savings.
Retailers can manipulate prices with ease. They can mark prices up before big shopping holidays hit to make you think you’re cashing in on something great. Or they can increase price tags on items before they even hit the shelves to offer bigger “supposed” discounts.
It can be tough to wade through this sea of savings as you try to figure out what’s real. Luckily, there’s an app for that, and it’s called Wikibuy.
We’ll take a look at how Wikibuy can help you find the best bargains from January to December. So if you missed Cyber Monday, here’s your chance to still save regardless of the day.
Before we jump into Wikibuy’s money-saving features, let’s touch on a hack that could save you money when shopping online.
Try This Hack to Get Discounts at Any Online Store
Your mileage may vary with this trick, but it works with several online stores and is worth trying:
- Visit your favorite online store.
- Select an item you’d like to buy and put it in your online shopping cart.
- Exit the site.
- Wait for a while.
Many websites can tell if you’ve added an item to your cart. If the purchase isn’t completed, they’ll send you reminder emails to nudge you into completing the process.
If they see you don’t respond, they may send additional emails with discounts to close the deal. So if you can be patient when it comes to the product in question, try this tip. You could get it for cheaper in a couple of weeks due to abandoned cart emails.
