The Easiest Way to Save Money When Shopping Online

Whenever I shop for something online I always look for a discount, and it solely because of how easy it is to find promo codes, coupon codes, etc.  While I will usually just search for the term and promo code, Wikipedia highlights a ton of other synonyms that should be looked into,

Online retailers often refer to coupons as “coupon codes,” “promotional codes,” “promotion codes,” “discount codes,” “key codes,” “promo codes,” “surplus codes,” “portable codes,” “shopping codes,” “voucher codes,” “reward codes” “discount vouchers” or “source codes.” Internet coupons typically provide for reduced cost or free shipping, a specific dollar or percentage discount, or some other offer to encourage consumers to purchase specific products or to purchase from specific retailers.

I had never heard of some of those terms including discount vouchers and source codes.

A Simple Example of How to Search for Promotional Codes

Lets say you were interested in a Vodafone promotional code (A non-US Cell phone provider) what I would normally do is simply go to go google and type in

Google - Vodafone Promotional Code Search

The search results? About 359,000 sites.  How is that for money saving?  This technique is not limited to individual products you can even look up entire stores.  You can easily look up a Dixon discount code just as easy.

Do you normally search for promotional codes?

  1. I do that too when I shop for my tracfone minutes. I usually search for tracfone coupon and I’ll get an extra 40 phone minutes for 2 minutes of work.

    Interesting technique, I usually visit shopping blogs in search of discount codes but searching them at Google seems to be a better way to find them. Nevertheless, the only problem would finding this codes as new as possible. Lets remember that search engines retains information from years, so getting old expired codes could be frustrating. Just my thoughts.
