One thing I used to despise was when I’m in the check-out line at a department store and the cashier asks me if they can have my email. Umm….no you may not!!
1) I didn’t want to be bothered with pointless emails cluttering my inbox
2) my assumptions were that the deals probably weren’t even that good.
I was mistaken.
If you are a shopper, and you have zero self control over this habit, try buying items marked "sale" or "Clearance" that way you don't feel too bad about dipping into your piggy bank. The best thing you can do, especially for a store that you frequent often, is join their email list and/or get their rewards cards. Some of these stores are literally GIVING you money to shop with them, but if you don’t sign up, you’ll never know.
Try these tips next time you sign up for deals:
