How to get maximum discount by online shopping?

This article shows you how to get the most out of online shopping. This deals with the use of various cashback websites, discount coupon codes, cashback wallets, debit and credit cards. Overall, one must make use of all these to get the maximum benefit of online shopping.

Today most youngsters prefer shopping online due to availability of various deals and discounts due to competition between online stores. There are various advantages of online shopping compared to offline shopping. These advantages include various deals, discounts, offers, free home delivery, cash on delivery and the service they provide. I too personally use online shopping when it comes to buying stuff. Here in this article, I am going to share my views and ways by which I am getting the maximum benefit out of online shopping.

Follow this step by step guide to get the most out of online shopping:

Make use of various comparison websites

Visit various comparison websites that compare the prices of the same product available with various online stores. e.g. If you want to buy a power bank, do not simply visit any website to buy it but compare the price and product at different online stores. There are many websites that compare products very efficiently. Various comparison websites like Junglee, CompareIndia, MySmartPrice, Trivago, etc, are available to determine which product is available at the cheapest price.

Use various Cashback websites

Make use of cashback websites like GoPaisa, Paytm, etc, to get cashback when you buy a product online. This website creates a link which transfers you to a particular website from where you want to buy something. As you buy from the cashback website, they will share their commission with you in terms of a certain percentage of the total amount spent. e.g. GoPaisa gives 12% cashback (in GoPaisa wallet) when one wants to buy a product from Like GoPaisa, Paytm also gives cashback into their Paytm wallet.

Use Coupon-code sites

When you choose to buy something, first examine whether you will be getting additional discount via the use of a promo code or discount coupon code. Various websites offer various promo codes for the additional discount. These websites are CouponDuniya, CouponGuru, Groupon, PromoCodeClub, etc.

Pay via Wallet or Cards

One can get the maximum benefit of online shopping at payment mode as well. Today banks are also giving various cashback offers if we use their debit and credit cards. They declare cashback offers for a particular product and for a particular buying range. Mostly private banks like Axis bank, ICICI bank, HDFC bank, Citibank provide these cashback offers. State Bank of India gives freedom rewards points for online shopping made via the use of the SBI debit card. Second payment option is to pay via wallet like Paytm wallet, PayUMoney Wallet, Mobikwik wallet. These wallets normally offer various promo codes by which they give certain additional cash via cashback offers. Majority of online shops like Snapdeal, Flipkart,, Paytm, Shopclues, etc. accept payment via wallet.

Example:Suppose you want to buy a power bank of 5200 mAh capacity for your smartphone. The first step should be a comparison of this product at various comparative websites. If you find Shopclues is selling this 5200 mAh capacity power bank at the cheapest price, first go to a cashback website like GoPaisa. Enter the Shopclues website via the link given by GoPaisa. By doing so, you will be getting a minimum of 5.8 % cashback of your total order (First saving). The second step is to choose the product based on the maximum discount Shopclues gives you (Second saving). Now during payment, choose payment via Mobikwik wallet because you will be getting 10% cashback for payment via MobiKwik at Shopclues (Third Saving). So, in short, you will get your power bank at a 15.8% discounted price if Shopclues does not give you any further discount on product. If it gives, add that too. Shopclues provides Clues Bucks, a cashback money when you buy anything from Shopclues that you can later use for your next purchase.


Always choose the way I have shown above to get the maximum benefit on your online purchase via cashback, discount coupons, and wallet offers.

Nice tips. Cashback sites is what I normally use. But your tips on making use of multiple cashback is really an excellent idea indeed.
Some etailers offer special discounts on payment through specific payment methods. Making the best use of such offers would also help you save much.
Only drawback with most of the sites is they offer rewards in terms of wallet which sometimes won't give you real cash.
