Smart Shopping During a Recession

We get it. Inflation rates are skyrocketing, financial analysts are predicting a recession, and you’re worried about how you will be able to make ends meet. The economy is making life difficult for people all over the world; prices continue rising, and we just can’t keep up. 

In a situation like this, a little goes a long way – which is what Karma is here to help with. With 50,000 retailer partnerships that include Amazon and Target, our online shopping assistant can help you save money on everything from back-to-school clothing, household items, and even groceries by making sure you never miss a sale.

Savings tricks

If you want to cut a few dollars off your monthly spending to stay afloat during tougher economic periods, we have a couple of handy tricks.

First, take advantage of price matching. If you find a lower price on an identical item at another store, some retailers will match that price to keep your business. This is especially useful when shopping for big-ticket items like appliances or electronics, but can also work for smaller things like clothes and groceries.

Second, take the time to comparison shop. It may take a little bit longer than just buying the first thing you see, but it’s worth it when you find the same product for a fraction of the price. There are plenty of websites and apps that make it easy to compare prices on everything from groceries to gas, so there’s no excuse not to do it.

Lastly, use coupons! Whether you’re clipping them from the Sunday paper or printing them out from websites, using coupons can help you save a significant amount of money on your purchases. Just be sure to read the fine print and follow the rules so that you don’t end up spending more than you intended.
