What’s Your Email Address?
You likely remember the times when providing this information meant that you would be bombarded by a bevy of providers all trying to convince you through email that their service was the one for you, with numerous sales and discounts to boot.
While some of the offers were helpful, the majority of them ended up being marked as SPAM, never seeing the light of your screen again.
However, those are the days of old. Nowadays, stores and provides realize just how easy it is to permanently ignore their messages, but also how much wasting a customer’s time can actually turn them off your service.

Have you ever received a request to Like something on Facebook? Maybe it was a fashion designer, or a grocery store, or even a restaurant. You likely accepted and then immediately hid them from your feed.
If you have done this, turn them back on.
Similar to the SPAM tip above, social media teams are smart and ensure that only those interested in their products and campaigns will receive information. With this, leave their stories showing and give their feed a chance.
When it comes to online shopping, it’s important to remember that there is more than one place to buy your items and more than one way to find them. The next time that you have something in mind to buy, keep this article in mind and use the tips mentioned in it to help you find the best price.
