FORT LAUDERDALE, FL — (Marketwired) — 07/28/15 — DubLi, a leader in global Cashback shopping today released an early look at some helpful tips for back-to-school shopping from its shopping portal, DubLi.com.
Back to School shopping tips
With August right around the corner, back-to-school sales and shopping are already in full swing. According to the National Retail Federation, U.S. consumers will spend about $68 billion this year on back-to-school items, up 42 percent over the past decade.
Back-to-school shopping can be a stressful and expensive experience for parents and students alike, but it doesn’t have to be. DubLi, a leader in global Cashback shopping, shares a few tips for finding the best deals and saving money while shopping for back-to-school necessities:
The concept of Cashback shopping allows shoppers to save twice by combining Cashback offers with coupons. When shoppers make a purchase from their favorite store through the DubLi.com shopping website, they earn Cashback on every purchase. The Cashback savings can be “stacked” with a coupon code or voucher at checkout to save twice on one purchase. Online merchants pay DubLi to send them customers, which enables DubLi to reward customers with Cashback as well as with special coupons.
Use Technology to Save Time and Money
Always on the go? Too busy to spend hours clipping coupons? Your smartphone can help. According to industry analysts, the no. 1 use of smartphones this back-to-school season will be to browse and download discounts, coupons and information about sales. Additionally, if you use your tablet to make back-to-school purchases, you’re not alone. Almost half of all consumers plan to shop using a tablet this year.
While back-to-school shopping has traditionally been done in brick-and-mortar stores, most retailers are incentivizing online shopping by posting special web-only sales, discounts and coupons. Put technology to work for you and start looking as early as July for great promotions and online-exclusive coupon codes.
Purchase Online, Pick-up Offline
Many stores allow you to purchase online, and then pick up in your local store. Called “omni-channel” shopping, you can save twice by stacking exclusive online sales, coupons and Cashback savings, while getting the products in your hands the very same day. Many retailers offer in-store returns too.
Take Advantage of Social Media
Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts are great sources to discover the best back-to-school sales and promotions. Even the biggest, most profitable companies are tapping into the social media landscape for direct channels to promote early back-to-school deals. Many feature exclusive social media promo codes, helping you maximize this year’s savings. DubLi aggregates and posts all of the top back-to-school coupons directly on its Facebook page, so shoppers can see which coupons and deals can be stacked with Cashback savings.
Procrastinators: A Risk/Reward Venture
Although many retailers are promoting early back-to-school sales, good things can come to those who wait. If you are able to plan ahead and hold out for the shopping madness to pass, you could score some great deals on items that aren’t absolute necessities for the first day of school:
1. Cell phones: The major carriers generally don’t start pushing deals until the holiday season approaches.
2. Jeans: Most retailers have their brand-new fall denim collections out already; wait until mid-season sales to get great value.
3. TVs: For your college students, it’s best to wait until pre-Black Friday, or even the post-holiday sales of January and February to get the best deals
However, avoid waiting until the last minute for necessities like notebooks, pencils, paper and glue. Because many of these items sell out quickly, we recommend purchasing these items early and online, so you can save with stackable coupons and Cashback.
“Back-to-school shopping doesn’t have to be a hassle or as expensive as you thought,” said Ivan Braiker, President and CEO of DubLi.com. “By incorporating these tips and shopping through DubLi.com to combine both coupons and Cashback, you can make the back-to -school shopping process painless, if not downright enjoyable as you take advantage of savings across the board.”
