As you probably already know, there are several solutions to get rich on the web: find small jobs, open a blog or even play daily. But this time, we are not going to be interested in the different methods to earn money: we are going to tell you about 6 ways to save with the internet. They are easy to implement and, above all, they are accessible to everyone.

1. Before buying

The consumer society imposes a basic lifestyle on us: we need something, we go to a store to buy it. The internet is a game-changer, as new alternatives are gaining popularity. For example, before looking at new products, why not try to trade?

On social networks, sharing groups exist: everyone posts what they have to trade, and the different members offer what they can give in exchange. A good alternative to buy new objects – and get rid of old ones – without ever spending a penny.

2. Compare the rates

There are many online comparators that allow you to compare the different offers in all sectors. For example, before choosing your internet service provider or your mobile plan, you can easily access guides that tell you about the advantages of each offer.

3. Use discount codes

Very often, on the various online shopping site, a discount code make it possible to reduce the price of the basket. Sometimes the economy is significant! In some cases, you can also get free delivery with no minimum purchase – or gifts of all kinds with an advantage code.

So, before buying, always look for a discount code compatible with your order: sites like Groupola regularly share this kind of good deals.

4. Private Sales

Saving money on the internet is above all looking for the best opportunities to indulge yourself while spending less money. With the development of private sales, it is becoming easier to order products at low prices. Sites like vente-privee.com have real notoriety today. They offer daily offers in all universes, and to take advantage of it, you just have to be a member.

Do not hesitate to create an account on these different platforms, it is a completely free operation.

5. Group purchases

You are certainly familiar with the Groupon site, which offers unbeatable prices on group sales.

Concretely, other platforms operate on this same principle. Customers position themselves on products, and the sale is only validated if a minimum number of buyers has been reached. As on private sales, the offers are not the same depending on the period. To do business, we advise you to connect fairly regularly. In this way, you will anticipate the really attractive reductions.

6. Do your accounts

On mobile phones, there is no shortage of applications for accounting: you can obviously download the application from your bank, or you can trust another application to better manage your budget. Regularly update your earnings and expenses, in order to better know the situation of your account and better predict your purchasing capacity.

Ideally, it is advisable to define the budget for each universe each month (leisure, food, housing, etc.), in order to stick to it and make it easier to realize your projects based on your savings.
