4. Sign-Up For the Newsletter

This one’s tricky because you don’t want to clog your inbox, but the best deals are often found through email. If you’re selective and only sign-up for the stores you absolutely love there’s a good chance you’ll nab decent sale pricing. Even a head’s up about new arrivals can be a worthwhile advantage.

5. Download Honey

Last, but certainly not least, get technology on your side. Honey, an app/widget, can be downloaded right to your bookmarks bar and upon opening any retail site, it alerts you of any coupons or deals. True story: It once saved us $150. Is that genius, or is that genius?
