Make sure you get the lowest prices this holiday season! Here's a few tricks compiled from the experts:

  • Use a price tracking app: There are a few kinds, but the top rated is Price Tracker for Apple and Price Tracker Platinum for Android.
  • Take a snapshot of a price drop: Let's say you buy something and find the price drops a week later. Take a picture or a screen grab on your phone, email it to customer service, and see if they'll refund you the difference.
  • Clear your cookies before shopping online: Websites use cookies to track your internet history. If they think you're a new customer, they might offer you a discount to get you hooked.
  • The "abandoned cart theory": Put an item in your cart online, fill out all the information, such as name, address, email address, but never hit "purchase" A few days later, that same retailer might send you a discount code or coupon because they want your business.
