In one of our earlier blog posts, we wrote about how to save money shopping online by “Double Dipping” and “Stacking” promo codes from FreshlyDeals along with other savings. We received a lot of interest from our readers to explain more on how it works exactly and how easy it actually is to save more money! Here are more details on this amazing process
“Double Dip”: When the items you are looking at qualify for more than one offer at the same time. You are able to have more than one promotion applied to the same purchase.
“Stacking”: When you combine more than one offer together. Usually done externally, such as the use of a discounted gift card on a Clearance or Sale Item from a website that is already offering 50% off these items.
The best part is, you can double dip AND stack, both at the same time. Here’s how it works. Let’s use one of favorite stores, Kohl’s, as an example.
Now, in order to save more on top of this, we will perform the following additional steps:
1) Purchase an online gift card from gift card websites such as Raise.com-The best part about Raise is that you will be saving an additional 12% off your gift card purchase. In this case we are purchasing $108 worth of Kohl’s credit for the price of $95.04. (12% savings)
2. Next, load up your shopping cart at Kohl’s! We prefer to shop in the Sale and Clearance sections, where many items are already marked down! So here our shopping bag contains over $100 worth of Sale and Clearance Items. The promo code works AND Shipping is also FREE!
3. Remember that gift card we bought from Raise.com? It’s time to put it to good use! Use the gift card at check-out to apply those extra 12% savings on-top of your current amount.
Congratulations!!! You have now stacked AND double dipped, just how much savings you ask? Let’s calculate:
- Savings from the purchase of Clearance items: $216.40
- Additional 15% savings from Kohl’s promo code: $15.45
- Additional 12% savings from Raise.com gift card: $11.13
TOTAL FULL RETAIL VALUE OF GOODS: $295.00
TOTAL SAVINGS: $242.98
We paid: $81.63, with FREE SHIPPING included!
And that’s it! It’s that easy. Find clearance items, use promo code, gift card from Raise.com, and SAVE! If you cannot find promo codes, look for the latest ones from our website. Our job is to help YOU save money online. Happy Shopping!
