I am always looking for ways to save money.
Some of the ways that can help you do this is to be on top of your finances.
Let me tell you what I recently did. We purchase a bark collar for the puppy and within a week, the battery was flashing low. Instead of going to the store to purchase a battery, I brought the receipt and all the original packing back to the store and explained the situation. The store manager gave me a replacement battery pack. Not only did I get the battery replaced free, they gave me an additional battery for the future.
Another example, I purchased something online that wasn’t what I expected. I was told there was a no return policy after opening. I explained that I did open it and that’s how I knew it wasn’t what I expected. After several emails back and forth, they agreed to a return minus the restocking fee. Yes, I am getting less than I paid, but it is most of the money refunded and it’s not another item sitting in my house, that I won’t use.
Sometimes you can advocate for yourself and get a resolution to the issue that is wallet friendly. Try it sometime.
Other ways to save money, you can stick with what you own and not purchase the latest and greatest new option. Our TV/Internet provider wanted to give us faster internet. The catch was it would be an additional $5 more per month. We said “no”. There is nothing wrong or slow with what we have now.
Savings a few dollars here and there can add up.
