Saving with 6abc: Personal sale finders

(WPVI)

Here are some insider secrets from BUZZFEED that every bargain shopper NEEDS to know!

Beyond the basics of coupon code searching and jumping on sales, there are two apps that act as your personal sale finders.

One is called Shoptagr - it's a chrome extension.

You "pin" the item you want - size, color and all - and you get a notification when it goes on sale, and again after you buy it if it is marked down again.

Same for PoachIt, which also finds you discount codes.

Put items you want in your online shopping cart and leave them there.

Some retail shopping sites will see that you haven't yet made the purchase and they may email you to offer you discounts or incentives to buy them!

Make friends!

Befriending salespeople sometimes means getting the inside scoop on sales and markdowns before they happen or getting store discounts that aren't widely available.

Sometimes they will even hold an item for you to make sure you get the sale.

Finally, shop directly from brands instead of buying them at larger stores that sell them.

Department stores and other chains tend to mark up prices on items from smaller companies.

See something you like there? Look it up and you could save 20-percent simply getting it from the manufacturer itself.
