Remember, you do not know if you do not ask.
3. Be a rewards member – You should also inquire if brands you like using have rewards programs. Such programs are available in many grocery stores, airlines, hotels and more. The simple concept is brands will reward their regular customers for their patronage. This means you could reap the rewards each time you use a certain brand. Some companies require customers to have a card they can swipe each time they buy something. For others, it can be adding up miles on an airline account. Do some investigating to see how you can be rewarded for shopping with the brands you like.
4. Work with others – Finally, it is never a bad idea to work with outside family and friends to find discounts. Keep in mind the people you have regular contact with. They may come across savings on a product or service that you use and they do not. You can end up doing the same for them. By sharing such info, consumers in your world including you win.
