Wait! Read This Before You Buy

The secret that you may not know is that many brick-and-mortar American retailers offer also offer special additional discounts during their summer sales, but where do they post these discounts? Some American retailers only offer discounts through local newspaper advertisements, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out.  There are many ways that you can save money off your total purchase, so read on to find out how.

  • First, many times when you visit a US retailer’s website you can earn savings straight away. Take American department store Macy’s for example, when you visit, a pop-up will appear offering a 15% discount off your next purchase if you sign up for their email alerts. Saving 15% seems like small savings, but it’s immediate and you don’t have to go searching for coupon codes.
  • Another way you can save big is to look on American coupon code websites like or to find voucher codes for money off at your favourite stores, like $20 off a purchase or an additional discount off a certain category of merchandise, like an additional 40% men’s shoes. Always check around for discount codes on the web before you buy!
  • Another trick is that many stores, like Macy’s allow you to combine multiple discount codes, like $40 off your total purchase and 25% off a total purchase, together for mega-savings, so don’t stop at one discount code when you are checking out.
  • A little known fact is that certain watches, sunglasses, cosmetics, handbags and some designer items NEVER go on sale at brick-and-mortar stores in America, but if you use a discount code for money off your total purchase at that store, you can save big on those particular items, even though they are not on sale.

Shipping and Saving With Ship2You

You may have found some great sales at a variety of certain stores, but the problem is that many US websites and stores don’t ship internationally, only shipping to an address in America or require a US address before purchasing an item, making it virtually impossible to buy the items you want internationally from some US websites.

Ship2You solves this problem by allowing you to shop virtually anywhere in the US by providing you with a US address to use at checkout at nearly any US website, where your items will then be shipped. Once we receive your items in our warehouse, we can take a picture of the box and even the contents, ideal for checking that you were sent the exact item you ordered.

We can then ship your package as we received it, or consolidate and repackage the contents to fit in a smaller box, reducing the cost of shipping. If you have multiple items to ship, like if you purchased two pairs of shoes from different websites, Ship2You can consolidate and package those items together in one box, saving you money and the hassle of shipping two different packages internationally.  Once your items are ready to ship, we send your package to your doorstep usually within 2-5 days.

Don’t Miss Out on American Summer Sales

Many American end-of-summer sales are on now, so there’s no excuse to miss out. If you know which websites to visit, and follow our advice, you can find great discounts on the brands you love. By using the tips above, you can shop at an array of different stores and have everything sent to you in one shipment with Ship2You, saving you a load of cash.
