It seems like most websites focus on serving those people that live in the United States, even when they don’t completely ignore potential customers in other parts of the world. All too often, you hear people abroad complaining about how they were left out when a new product or service popped up online. For example, Hulu. A lot of people in Europe would love to stream the shows produced in the United States for free. Without a bit of hacking and ignoring the wishes of Hulu itself though, that isn’t going to happen.
Well, today I have some good news for people abroad. At least I have good news for people in the United Kingdom. I was contacted by a website that offers discount vouchers that cater to those readers I have who use the mighty British Pound to make their purchases. As anyone that has followed the Millionaire or Bust podcast or my blogposts over the past almost five years would know, I am a firm believer in rarely paying retail. Paying retail means giving up more of your hard earned money than you absolutely have to in many cases. That sets back any quest to accumulate wealth.
In some areas saving is easier, such as when you want to buy a consumer electronics product. In that case you just have to search out a place that carries the product you want and a site that can knock a few bucks off, such as with VoucherSeeker and this Dixons discount code. It really couldn’t be easier than that, so there is no excuse in dropping more than you have to on a product. Just do a quick search on at least one discount site. If you don’t find a discount, search on a couple more. You would be surprised how often you will find a discount of some sort. I have found myself saving as much as 50-60% on a few occasions. If that’s not worth spending an extra minute on before making a purchase, I don’t know what is.
Of course, there are a few places where discount codes seem to work a lot less frequently. One of those places seems to be on mobile phone plans. I had to rely on a corporate discount that my wife is entitled to in order to knock a few bucks off our mobile plan. I am not sure if it is due to a difference between the mobile markets in the US and in the UK or what, but VoucherSeeker even has discounts on mobile plans. Skeptical? Well, check out this Vodafone promotional code and see for yourself.
So, if you live in the UK and were about to make a purchase, I may just have saved you a few Pounds. Now you can’t say I never gave you anything. And you’re welcome. Now if you are in India and are saying, “What about me?” I have to just throw my hands up. My English is good. My Hindi? Not so much. If anyone has some tips about ways to save money in India or in other countries though, I’d be more than interested in hearing about them. Leave me a comment or send me an email. You can find my email on my contact page. Happy wealth building everyone!
