Tuesday Life Hack: 5 shopping hacks you should try

Shopping is one of those things in life you can never avoid. Why not try to make the experience far more pleasant and save some money with these helpful hacks?

1. Shopping online

When you shop online, try googling the promo codes of the store and items you want to purchase. When you’re prompted to buy, enter the code and you could get a discount or free delivery.

2. Which items to pick?

When shopping, the cheapest items will be on the top and bottom shelves, not on eye level. Always pick items at the back row especially when it comes to food as these items will have a longer expiry date than the items in front.

3. Not happy with your recent purchase?

Write an email to the companies that sell/own your favourite products. Tell them you buy and use their product often and that you are unhappy with your recent purchase. Most companies will send you some free new items or offer you a refund.

4. Tired of telemarketers trying to sell you stuff?

Download Truecaller and when you receive a spam call from telemarketers, the app adds those numbers to a block list. You’ll never hear from them again.

5. Shopping for an Apple product online?

Add the item to your shopping cart and don’t buy it just yet. According to Apple shopping experts, in 7-10 days they’ll give you a 15-20 percent discount.
