When making a purchase online, particularly large purchases, it’s worth looking into cashback websites where you effectively get money back for ordering online. You can use the same online shop you were originally planning to buy from, but before you buy, sign up to the cashback site, search for the shop you wish to purchase from and find out how much cashback you will receive for buying online via the cashback site — as compared to no cash back if you don’t use the website. It’s a very simple win.
