Coupons mean business! According to the Promotion Marketing Association (PMA), 76% of men and women use coupons.

Whether it’s out of necessity — people needing to stretch their budget — or just the thrill of saving money — the PMA has reported that 84 percent of women and 68 percent of men have redeemed coupons they’ve found in Sunday newspaper inserts and retailers’ fliers to save money.

Coupon Codes & Discounts For Online Shopping – Hints & Tips That Will Help You Save More Money!
By Debbie J Kelly

1. Can you use coupon codes at that particular store?

Have you ever shopped at an online retailer and seen an empty field such as ‘promo code’ or ‘promotional codes’? Well, this field can be used to get you extra discounts on your purchases. For example, I once received a 25% discount on an online contact lens order using a ‘Clearly Contacts discount code’.

So, any time you are shopping online and are in the process of going through the checkout, take a look for the coupon code box. It can come under many different names, from Swiss Chalet promo codes, Air Canada discount codes, an Avon Canada coupon code, or an Aldo Shoes promo code.

2. Search for the discount codes!

It is recommended that you search Google Canada for the exact search term and the company name. For example, ‘Staples coupon code’. You can also check out sites that have listings of promo codes, such as Retailmenot. You may find a dollar discount, a percentage discount, or perhaps a coupon code for free shipping.

3. Search more!

Do NOT settle for the first coupon code that you come across. There could be bigger and better discount coupons online. A couple of minutes of searching can save you a lot of cash in the end!

4. Adjust the discount code!

Companies can be quite predictable. For example, SEARS10 may give you a 10% discount, SEARS20 could give you 20% discount! When you find any promo code and enter it in the box provided, you can try a few other variations and see if you stumble upon a higher discount amount!

5. Check duration of discounts!

Occasionally, the promo codes cease to work before their stated expiry date. They may have been very popular and the retailer decided to cancel the offer code early. However, the opposite to this can also be true: sometimes the coupon codes continue to work well after the original expiry date. Be sure you see the exact discount amount shown in your shopping cart or when you go start to through the checkout. The discount code may not have worked, and you could be charged full price on your products or services.

6. Useful tips:




  • Some discount codes may be case sensitive (For example, ’10OFF’ might work well, but ’10off’ might not)


  • You might only be able to use a discount coupon once per customer account


  • Some of the voucher codes may only apply to certain types of products (E.g. Hardware)


  • Each promo code may have a limited life span (E.g. expires 31st December)


    7. Subscriptions!

    Lots of retailers send out free discount coupons when you subscribe to email newsletters. For example: every week, Michaels Canada sends out various coupons by email. You can sign up to a lot of newsletters using a junk email address, and get interesting coupons through! If you do decide to subscribe to a lot of newsletters, it is recommend that you use a disposable email account such as mailinator, or a new gmail account just for that purpose.


    With a little time and effort, you can save yourself quite a lot of money on your online shopping. Even if it is only a few bucks per purchase, this really can add up to be substantial savings over time.
