3 THINGS THAT SHOULD ALWAYS BE PURCHASED ONLINE

Prices can differ substantially depending on if you purchase a product or service online or in-store. In my opinion online retailers tend to be cheaper, and I think the main reason for this is that they obviously have lower overheads. So with regards to saving money, whether it be to build up your money in your ISA account, or whether your saving for something special, I thought I’d detail 3 things that I think should always be purchased online, and here they are.
Flights
There are so many options available online when it comes to flights and holidays, it makes it so easy to find a really good deal. I always purchase my holidays or flights online and most of the time I use holiday comparison sites, as they do all the hard work for you. I think that the day of the travel agent is basically over, I can’t remember the last time I went to one if I’m honest!
If you use a holiday comparison site, once you tell the website where you want to go and how long for, it will display a list of results that you can choose from. Comparing this with in-store, travel agents basically just do the same thing, unless they have any exclusive offers. Using travel comparison sites is just so easy and they can save you time and money.
Insurance
Insurance is one of those things that we simply have to purchase and for my insurance, I always shop online. There are many different types of insurance, from auto insurance to home insurance, and I’ve found that it’s always cheaper online rather than in-store.
Very similar to when comparing the prices of flights, you don’t really want to do the same search for insurance on every provider website or in every providers store, so you can use an insurance comparison website. However, don’t just check on one insurance comparison website, check two or three as one may have an exclusive deal that the other doesn’t offer.
DVD’s and CD’s
Whether you’re interested in purchasing CD’s or DVD’s, it doesn’t really matter which format, prices always seem to be cheaper online, I can’t remember the last time I bought one in a store. If you see a commercial or you see a film or CD when out shopping that you would like to purchase, then my advice would be to wait until you get home and check the major retailers online. Companies like Amazon and Play offer fantastic discounts on this sort of media, as again, they have very low expenses.
Another way to save money on DVD’s and CD’s is to check some dedicated pricing websites that compare the prices of all the major retailers for you. DVDpricesearch is a website that does this very well.
I hope this article has helped some people realise how much discount is available if you simple purchase online rather than in-store.
