I’ve definitely had this happen. I’ll check to see the final price of an order, and I’ll either just close it if I don’t want it or I may leave it to think about it. Nearly every time, I’ll get an email with a special offer.


So good. Or remove or visit the page a few times to see if you get a popup discount. I used to use a vpn when buying pricey stuff, keep visiting the page till a deal would be offered.


Works for eBay a lot too. Watch an item and don’t buy it right away. The seller will send you a discount.


I feel like this is the 17th time this week this post has been posted. 😛 It’s true the tip works though.
