3. Check for sales - No matter what store you are shopping from online make sure that you check the sale and clearance categories. New items are added all the time and you can often find very good items in those categories.
4. Check for Discounts - Search for discounts and coupon codes for the given store. Often times you will find a coupon or discount that you can apply to your order to get a given percentage off of your total order.
