Today is Boxing Day! Which means that there are sales on and off-line! Do you want to make sure you are taking advantage of them?
Often times retailers will post their sales online. They will let their fans and followers know of any upcoming events. But beyond that, there are often social media based sales that are only available to people who saw them on Twitter or Facebook. This is why it is a great idea to check your networks to see what is out there.
1. Look on Facebook to see if any of your favorite stores are offering sales
2. Search Twitter to look for sales. You can also see if your friends have shared any sales specials.
3. Check into any store you go to on Foursquare to check if there is a check in special. You can also turn on notifications so as you walk, or drive around, any specials will give you push notifications on your phone.
An offline way to barter a deal is to tell a store owner that you learned about their sale from their post on Facebook/Twitter (if this is true), especially if it is a small local business. By telling them this, you can sometimes earn yourself an extra 5% off your purchase. Plus store owners love to know that you saw their post on a social network.
