Securing the best holiday deals (even on regular days really) on your favorite cannabis products online is not so difficult nowadays. It’s only a matter of knowing which pages to click, how to subscribe to daily mail deals, and knowing the right hacks to bag serious product deals.
So without further ado, we’re dishing the top online shopping hacks to help you take advantage of the best deals this holiday.
Leave An Item in Your Cart
Trust me. Once you do this, it’s just a matter of time before an email pops up saying the very item you just left carted is suddenly on sale.
This is how you do it.
If you find a specific item that you really want, do the following:
- Create an account on the website that sells the item that you want (use your real email).
- Go to the product page and put the item in your shopping cart.
- Close the tab immediately, leaving the website as you do.
This might sound counterproductive but companies hate not making a sale that close. Once they see that pending cart, they’ll be itching to close that sale so they’ll be devising ways to sell that to you. One of the tactics they’ll try is to give you a special discount or sale. In no time, you’ll hear that email ding!
Check for Discounts
Always check for discounts. You might be eligible for discounts that could save you buckets of money. Online businesses give huge discounts on the following population:
- Military members
Check out a website’s “discount” category and see an array of markdowns you might be eligible to apply to.
You’re probably shedding a lot of money if you’re not doing this key shopping hack – comparing item prices online.
Simply search for the item online and check for e-commerce sites that offer them at a lesser price. Make sure they’re legitimate companies. You don’t want to get scammed just because you’re trying to save.
Take The Direct Delta 8 Shop for example. We sell products of cannabis brands at a price that’s sometimes equal to the SRP (suggested retail price) but mostly lesser.
Ask Directly for Discounts
As the saying goes, ask and you shall receive. No kidding, this is a fact. You can call up a company, tell them the item you’re eyeing and ask them if you could get a discount for it (bonus points if you’re planning to buy wholesale).
Companies don’t waste a moment making those elaborate marketing strategies such as branding, blogging, and putting up a customer service hotline for nothing. Their entire point is for you to reach them and for them to reach you. Take advantage of that fact by contacting them or as millennials would quip “sliding into their DMs.”
Businesses know the hassle of inflation during the holidays so it’s not uncommon for them to offer you personal sneaky discounts if you simply ask for one. This can happen twice but you’re lucky if you’re still successful the third time.
Subscribe to Email Newsletters or Text Messaging
Why is it worth subscribing to your favorite store site? Because you like transacting from them, you’ll want to be at the forefront of your favorite retailer’s sales and discounts by subscribing to their email and text blasts.
Email newsletters are channels through which businesses mainly communicate with their customers. They aren’t just about sales. Newsletters also aim to educate. Straight to your mailbox, you’ll receive helpful guides and blogs about what they sell. Gobbling on this information helps you use their products correctly and sometimes they pull up great items you might be dismissing initially.
Visit Your Favorite Ecommerce Site From Time to Time
Visit the store’s site homepage regularly. If a business likes to announce a big sale for the month, it would likely plaster it loud and proud on its homepage.
Strategize When to Shop for a Particular Item
Knowing what items will be on sale each season helps you save money and plan correctly on your purchases. Here’s what you can do:
- List down the big purchases you need to make this year.
- Designate which items will most likely go on sale depending on the season.
For products that are cannabinoid or kratom-derived, they really don’t need special dates to be on sale (except maybe for local festivals like 420). They can be on sale anytime. Still, you have to watch out for holiday deals and such, your favorite hemp product might be included in the clearance or discount list during that time.
Join the Club
Similar to a business handing you a loyalty card, there are also discount perks to signing up as a member on online sites. Signing up would mean giving out certain personal information such as your name or contact information.
Once they get your information, they will properly know where to reach you so they could promptly advertise discounts, sales, and other cannabis promotional products announcements you may want to know.
Do you find yourself consistently buying hemp products on that particular site? Then you’re considered a loyal customer! Take advantage of that fact by signing up as a member. Online stores often offer reward points to their loyal customers. Don’t underestimate those points, they could pile up in no time and could yield perks such as a freebie or a discount.
