How To Save Money with Promo Codes

Open Product/Service Order Page

And ensure there's a box asking for a promo code. If not, of course, this saving won't work.

Goto Google

Enter your keywords. Say, “[product] promo code”.

Click on Advanced Search. At the page that opens, click on the option, “Date, usage rights, numeric range, and more”.

Choose the option “past month” or maybe “past week”.

By default, Google searches for your keywords using “anytime.” This is no good when looking for something that expires, like a special offer.

What a Result!

OK, so now you will see any recent promotions for your required product or service. Open a few tabs with the various offers and choose the best one…

Re-open Product/Service Order Page

And after filling in your order details, add the promotion code.

If it doesn't work, the offer maybe having expired, try another from the Google results. Sorry, that was probably pretty obvious. 😉
