This week on Money Wise, we’re all about sharing our favourite shopping tips and tricks. After all, who doesn’t love to score a fantastic deal for less? Heck, some people will even leave the country for their smart shopping fix.
Daily deal sites are full of discounts so great, you can’t help but snap them up. Before you rush to buy the next spa or trip package to come your way, though, ask yourself: are you overestimating the deal – and is it feeding your overspending habits?
For the last year or so, group-buying sites have been all the rage on the Net. What appeal! You sign up for a site like Groupon, Dealfind or WagJag and get access to killer discounts on a range of products and services like spa days, hotels, sports tickets and restaurants. Smart consumers are getting great deals. But some are wasting their money. Follow these 10 steps to make sure you’re actually saving when you use a group buying service.
