Misc. Shopping Tips

If you shop at Bed Bath and Beyond, it should be noted that they accept both expired coupons and coupons from competitors. No receipts are required for returning merchandise; so even if you didn’t buy it there, you can return it there. Further, some of their coupons (especially those for free lotions) don’t have a minim purchase requirement. Ergo, you can go in, buy the cheapest item possible, and get a free bottle of lotion.

Even if you don’t have a Sam’s club membership, you can still get in if you tell the person at the door that you’re going in to buy alcohol. Once you get inside, make sure to get a few free samples.

Before getting virus help from Geek Squad, make sure that you have backed up all your files. Instead of finding and exterminating particular viruses, they usually just restore your hard drive to its factory state (and charge you an arm and a leg to back up your files).

For all the Hobby Lobby enthusiasts out there, know that most items (aside from the Greeting Cards and items in the party department) usually go on sale every two weeks or so. Especially home accents and seasonal items, which, within a few weeks, will go for 60%, 80%, and even 90% off. At a similar store called Michaels, during every seasonal transition (i.e. winter, spring, summer, and fall), all of the items from the past season are thrown in the dumpsters behind the stores. Although you could be charged with trespassing, these dumpsters are gold mines for the brave few willing to excavate them.

If you ship something through the USPS that must be delivered at a particular time of day, check the delivery time. If it is delivered more than ten minutes after the specified time, you can get your money back.
