We know that many of our customers (that’s you!) are pretty savvy when it comes to cheap online shopping. The fact they you use a parcel forwarding service for your UK online shopping means that you know the tricks of the trade – putting you one step ahead.
But being a savvy shopper doesn’t end there.
HOW TO SHOP IN THE UK – FORWARD2ME’S ULTIMATE GUIDE
To help you make the most of your UK online shopping experience, and to ensure you pay the best price, we’ve put together a guide to help you get the best out of your forward2me account.
Select from one of three warehouses
Forward2me’s parcel forwarding service has three warehouse options for customers to choose from – so you can pick the one that suits you best. As well as our original warehouse in the UK, we also have additional warehouses in Guernsey and Germany. Our Guernsey warehouse gives shoppers based internationally access to duty free prices, whilst our German warehouse opens up a whole world of shopping in mainland Europe. You can choose to use any of our warehouses for each individual order – so if you’re unsure, contact our team and we can advise of the cheapest and quickest option for your UK online shopping.
Take advantage of deals and savings!
The days of paying full price are long-gone and savvy shoppers will know that there is often a saving to be made and cheap online shopping to be done…
Sign up to voucher code sites.
Although they don’t always advertise them on their own websites, many retailers will have additional discounts available when voucher codes are applied. It is always worth checking for discount codes before you hit the ‘Pay Now’ button for an extra 10% or 20% off your order, or sign up to vouchercodes.co.uk for daily emails of the best deals around. Another way go about cheap online shopping is to sign up with cashback sites (topcashback.co.uk and quidco.com are just two). Although you don’t usually save on your shop at the point of payment, you’ll be awarded cashback in your account, which you can build up and turn into cash or vouchers.
Sign up for a Nectar Card.
Another good way to earn rewards as you shop is to sign up for a Nectar Card. A number of sites – including eBay – allow you to earn Nectar points on their site, so you can build up points which you can later turn into vouchers.
Join Amazon Prime.
If you buy a lot from a specific retailer, it might be worth signing up for membership or an annual delivery pass (if available). Amazon’s Prime membership is hugely popular – giving customers access to free, speedy delivery on Prime products and a whole host of other benefits. Forward2me’s customers can get FREE priority shipping on Prime products to your forward2me address in the UK. Other retailers including ASOS and New Look have annual delivery passes, so all UK deliveries will be included in one single price, meaning you’ll just have to pay for your ongoing parcel forwarding costs.
Sign up for points cards.
There are several UK retailers that have points cards and loyalty schemes. One of the best is the Boots Advantage Card – which gives you 4 points for every pound you spend. What’s more, if you buy baby products regularly or even need a large baby item (such as a pram, a car seat or a buggy), you can sign up to the Boots Parenting Club and receive 10 points per pound! Points make £’s!
