A Savvy Approach to Online Shopping

This post was edited by guest blogger: Sarah Simpson

Online shopping gives people an opportunity to find out what’s for sale, as well as an opportunity to show off your budgeting skills.

By mastering the art of online shopping, you’re going to go far in the world and so are the dollars you own. Online shopping has become the premier place to be a savvy shopper. Here’s why.


Online shoppers have an advantage over their offline counterparts. Internet users can
explore a list of products that never even make it to the shelves of stores. There are products and
brands to choose from that you’ve never seen in a store before, and this gives you the ability to find
lower prices on the items you need.


You can’t walk into a store and receive a list of thousands of coupons. The Internet lets you find this
list of coupons and it lets you search for what you need. The search function is a powerful tool for
saving money online. When you search for product coupons, you’re going to find results that are


There’s no need to be interrupted while you’re shopping. You can shop at all hours of the day or
night without facing a crowd of people that break your shopping concentration. Shopping is fun but
it also requires the shopper to think and debate possible purchases. Without the noise of a shopping
crowd, it’s easier for a shopper to consider their options and make wise decisions.


Comparison shopping is one of the major advantages of online shopping. It’s possible to search for
millions of products and receive pricing from thousands of different online stores. This is a luxury
that was unheard of even 10 short years ago but now it’s a miracle that’s commonplace. It’s the kind
of advantage that an online shopper should always use when shopping on the Internet.

Don’t Forget

  • Browse through collection after collection. Make sure you’ve seen all the merchandise.
  • Never forget the coupons. There is a coupon for almost everything you shop for.
  • Comparison shopping is essential. Always do a comparison search before buying.

When you shop in this way, you’ll find that your online shopping choices will save you thousands of
dollars over time. You’ll find that you have much more money to spend during the month and you’ll
find that you can make more fun purchases when you save money on the things you need.

Shopping is sometimes about necessity but a good deal of it is meant to be fun. There are so
many products and services out there that can bring excitement and improvement to your life. By
shopping online, you save money while you find those products and services.

Sarah Simpson loves shopping! But she also likes to make sure that she’s truly picking up a bargain!
She currently operates Offer UK, which lists a range of fashion discounts and coupon codes,
including Miss Selfridge discount codes and those offered by other leading clothing retailers.

Rue La La Builds Mobile Success with the Launch of Complete Mobility

Rue La La’s 48-hour, flash boutiques create urgency and excitement among shoppers with coveted items selling out quickly. The urgency that accompanies the opening of each boutique spurred Rue La La to expand its mobile offerings to mobile devices, providing increased opportunity to shop and pass along membership from anywhere. The apps offer fully integrated Facebook and Twitter features that allow shoppers to share their shopping success and to invite friends within their social circles to join Rue La La.

Rue La La is excited to deliver complete shopping mobility to our members allowing them to experience the thrill of accessing their favorite brands when our boutiques open at 11:00 a.m. no matter where they are,

explains Ben Fischman, CEO, Rue La La.

We have answered their call of urgency by providing the unparalleled shopping experience found from their desktops with the most popular mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and Android. Rue La La members never have to miss another boutique.

To celebrate the launch of the apps, Rue La La will be giving away one iPad and a $500 shopping spree every day from May 24 – June 6, 2010. To enter, consumers need to download the application to their iPhone or iPad and register. Visit for details.

RowNine enters Flash Sales space

There are many flash sales sites on the web, Gilt Groupe, Rue La La, HauteLook and Ideeli. These site offer their members 50%-70% off retail goods. Newbie RowNine is hoping to differentiate itself by offering a more personalized platform that allows users to customize the types of clothing, handbags and accessories that are delivered to them.

On RowNine, users will now be prompted to specify what types of clothing, brands, bags, and more items they are interested in purchasing. Customers can indicate their preferences when perusing offers and merchandise on the RowNine Website by giving a “thumbs up or down” to build their preference profile.
RowNine will then source and recommend customized products to the users. RowNine’s recommendation engine will integrate a shopper’s clickstream and purchase history as well as group matching with customers with similar interests to deliver targeted recommendations. Customers will also have the ability to publish products and purchases they like via their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

While the space is competitive, the model is certainly ambitious and could prove to be attractive to shoppers who want more customized offerings from online sample sales. One of the biggest challenges for RowNine will be to attract users; the site only has a hundred thousand members as compared to the millions competitors have. But the online sample sale space is still growing, and clearly there’s room for a number of strong players.
