Use a Credit Card That Offers Price Protection and Extended Warranties
If you don’t have the time to do a price comparison on every single purchase, consider getting a credit card that offers price-protection, says Sarah Hollenbeck, shopping and savings expert. “That way, if you find a better deal on the same item within 60 to 90 days, you can get the difference refunded to you,” Hollenbeck says.
Many retailers try to convince you to buy pricey extended warranties on products as you’re making a purchase, particularly for technology items. Such warranties may be worth the money for some folks, but instead of spending a ton of cash on these warranties, use a credit card that offers warranties no matter where you shop, Hollenbeck advises.
