You don’t have to worry about your shopping goals every time you go shopping, but if you don’t consider them once in awhile, then you’ll likely get caught up in someone else’s ideas of what’s best for you and your family. It’s a good idea to occasionally consider what you are trying to accomplish when you shop, and what limits you need to stay within so that you don’t run into financial trouble in the long run. Remember, the pursuit of happiness is not likely to be satisfied if you’re just pursuing more, more, more.

Loyalty Programs, or Points Programs, or Reward Programs are a great way to get rewarded for just doing your normal shopping. Be careful though. If the loyalty program does not match your shopping style, then you may be wasting your time and money.
Online Recommendations & Reputation
Trust is very important in any replationship. Trust is especially important when you decide to spent your hard earned money. I’m a strong believer that that Internet is a powerful tool for consumers, because it makes the marketplace more open and transparent. Unfortunately, the Internet also gives a voice to con artists, scams and companies that make their money manipulating real conversations about products and companies. This site cannot replace the need for a shopper to make good decisions about whom they trust, but I’ll try to list a few that I trust. Please let me know if you use other sites that should be listed.

Yes, it’s true. There is such a thing as a mystery shopper. Mystery shoppers are used by retail companies to test the shopping experience that they deliver to their customers. Unfortunately, it’s not as glamours as it first sounds, and the pay is not great. On the other hand, if you’re opinionated and have an eye for detail, you might want to look into becoming a Mystery Shopper yourself.
