The Definitive Guide to Couponing at TigerDirect
@dealspotr posted this article
TigerDirect has a huge supply of all the latest technology and must-have household items. While you may be getting great deals by simply choosing to shop with TigerDirect, they make it easy to take advantage of additional savings – simply follow these tips and tricks.
Start with Overstock Clearance
The TigerDirect website has an entire section of reduced priced items of overstock clearance – where you’ll find refurbished computers and great deals on almost every product category, even downloadable software. If you know what you’re looking for, there’s a good chance you’ll find it (or at least something similar) in this section. Simply choose from the long list of overstock categories.
Register your email on the TigerDirect site to receive news about product updates, including newly added items in the overstock clearance section. You’ll also be the first to receive insider deals, new promo codes, and exclusive promotions. Don’t forget to browse your email for new rebates and for items featured on the Tiger hot list.
Check Out the Daily Deal Slasher
The Tiger Daily Deal Slasher is a featured item that changes daily. The item is on sale for one day only, and the page usually features additional deals and products that complement the daily deal product (called bonus slasher deals). The Tiger Deal Slasher is meant to help customers with gift ideas, and usually features smart phones, video games, housewares, office supplies, tablets, desktop computers, HDTV’s, components, and more. They’re only available for a limited time, which is why it’s important to stay connected to TigerDirect announcements – as there is no way to set up alerts for specific daily deal products through the email service.
The next best thing to TigerDirect alerts is following them on social media. You can follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube. They also have a service called RSS (really simple syndication) that offers RSS feeds for use in news readers and blogs. It’s free to subscribe to RSS, and you’ll get feeds that include up-to-date headlines on all of the latest deals
Shop the Coupon Deals Section
TigerDirect puts all of its coupon deals in one spot so that you don’t have to apply several promo codes before finding one that works. It’s important to note that all the TigerDirect coupon deals have limited quantities, so if you have your eye on something in this section, you should snag it as soon as possible – before the offer either expires or the item sells out. Once in the coupon deals section, use the links to the left of the screen to shop by category. When you add a product to your cart from this section, the coupon and/or rebate will be applied automatically.
If you aren’t able to purchase right away, simply add the item to your wishlist – this way you’ll have all your items saved when you’re ready to check out at a later time.
Use the Rebate Center To Find More Savings
The TigerDirect rebate center lists special rebates and additional discounts on already discounted items. You can search by rebate coupon, order number, or manufacturer/item number. The great thing about this service is that TigerDirect has a rebate assurance policy – which means you’ll receive any rebate for which you are eligible and properly apply for. They’ll even assist you if the rebate sponsor improperly denies your rebate, or if you don’t receive payment for a qualified rebate you’ve properly applied for.
Participate in the Trade-in Program
TigerDirect has a trade-in, donate, and recycle program that not only helps the environment, but also helps you stay up-to-date with the latest products. You can trade in your old computer, notebook, LCD monitor, digital camera, or mobile phone for a TigerDirect gift certificate in exchange. You also have the option of donating your items to the National Cristina Foundation, which provides computer technology to those with disabilities, economically disadvantaged students, and others who will make use of your old gadgets. The TigerDirect site also lists various companies that will help you recycle your old stuff.
Take Advantage of the Return Policy
TigerDirect has a satisfaction guarantee for most of its products, even if there is also a manufacturer’s warranty, as well. Simply return it within 30 days of receipt for an exchange or refund. It’s important to note that some items can only be returned within 14 days, so be sure to check the return policy if you plan on returning or exchanging your purchase. Some items don’t qualify for a return at all, so the list should also be reviewed prior to making any purchase.
Buy Discounted Gift Cards
Raise.com typically stocks TigerDirect gift cards at discounted pricing, but they go fast. In order to snag your discounted TigerDirect card before they’re gone, sign up for alerts on the Raise.com website, and you’ll be alerted as soon as they’re back in stock. This is a great option if you have your eye on a specific purchase – this is perhaps the easiest way to save on your next TigerDirect purchase.
Use Price Matching
Tiger Direct has a price match policy that guarantees a best price promise, including price matching at the time of the order, and even after the sale. TigerDirect will match any competitor’s price on identical items (manufacturer and model). The only catch is that the item must be in stock and available for immediate shipment. Price matched items are also limited to a one per household quantity. The great thing about the policy is that it also applies to website and phone orders, including shipping. Phone and web customers simply call 800-800-8300 to request a price match. Be sure to prove the URL of the competitor’s webpage or current advertisement that proves the competitor’s lower price. In addition, TigerDirect has a price protection policy that protects you if TigerDirect reduces a regularly priced item you’ve already purchased – or if you later find that a qualifying competitor has a lower price. TigerDirect will issue a credit in the amount of the price difference toward a future purchase. However, note that the price protection policy only applies to regularly advertised products, and is limited to two price protections per item, per household.
Get a Tiger Direct Preferred Account
The TigerDirect preferred account is offered through Comenity Capital Bank, and is a credit card that helps you save with exclusive discounts, financing, and rewards. If you frequently shop at TigerDirect, the special financing may be a benefit to you, and your credit line will depend on your credit score.
Enter the Sweepstakes
Sign up for sweepstakes alerts for an opportunity to enter active TigerDirect sweepstakes. Past sweepstakes included a chance to win a Samsung tech makeover bundle – which included a 60” 3D HDTV, a Galaxy tablet, Core i7 laptop, and a wireless color printer (total value of $4,249.96). There is typically no purchase necessary, so you have nothing to lose by entering.
