Whenever I’m in the final steps of buying something online, and I see a field for Promotional Code on the order form, I immediately open a new browser tab and do a quick google search for the name of the store plus “Coupon Code” or “Promotional Code” (without the quotes). More than half the time I find a code in less than 2 minutes, especially if it’s a major online shop. You’ll find that it can be very easy to save 10%, or get free shipping, etc… It doesn’t always work out, and I won’t spend a lot of time looking, but I’ve made it part of my routine when shopping online.

I also check retailmenot.com and dealnews.com / dealcoupon.com before any online purchase.
Special bonus – sign up at FatWallet and get cash back on most purchases. Works well.
