Online Retailers That Are Making Life a Little Easier | 22 Words

We're living in a digital age, and especially with quarantine in full-effect, many are people spending their days scrolling on their devices, waiting to click "buy" on the next hot-ticket item.

A vast majority of retailers are hosting vibrant sales online, while others are struggling to keep up with the purchase demand – like Amazon. The popular retailer has shifted its focus to "essential items" only which has led users to find other sites to fulfill their digital purchasing needs. As it seems, people have been flocking to these other popular retailers to purchase home furniture, workout equipment, fashion accessories, and many more.

Here are a few retailers that are making things a little easier for us online this season.

You'll most likely receive a deal or discount every time you shop at Overstock.com You can get 15% off your first order by signing up with your email address, and if you apply for a Club O membership, you’re eligible for even more discounts! The Club O membership is only $19.95 a year and gives you access to even more deals, free returns, and 5% rewards on every purchase you make – among many other things.

There are new products, and new deals every single day. QVC has a "Today's Special Value" deal linked onto their homepage, which allows you to save $$$ on a different item each day of the week. They also have a wonderful online selection of products from top-rated brands – and if you're struggling to find something you like, you can contact their online support for any help or questions. I go to QVC for top brands on electronics, jewelry, and even utility items. Since they have such great deals, I purchased lots of tech-related gadgets for my family this past holiday season.

Kohl's

In my hometown, Kohl's is typically where you'd run into everyone and their mother on a Sunday shopping trip. It's a funny meeting place of sorts for the families in my neighborhood who headed out to check out the latest deals on clothing and appliances and to spend their coveted Kohl's Cash.  You can earn $10 Kohl's cash every time you spend $50. It's an amazing rewards program you can use in-store or online. And even more recently, Kohl's has offered Drive-Up availability for their online orders. They've pivoted to online-only (for the time being) and have been offering tons of deals and sales to their market. You can also download their App for in-app discounts and help!

Groupon

Groupon is truly the hubspot of all online deals and discounts! You can search for experiences, services, and products by location, which is super handy. Groupon also has a "Deal of the Day" section on their homepage where they cycle out different deals that may be relevant to your interests and locations. They're definitely worth signing up for, as the deals on services (like haircuts) and experiences (like concerts) change all of the time. I am constantly on Groupon looking at spas and workout classes that offer deals for a fraction of the original price.

Bed Bath and Beyond

Bed Bath and Beyond is truly just as it seems! It has practically everything relating to house and homewares, and more. A well-known fact about Bed Bath and Beyond is that they're renowned for their coupons. You can use them in-store or online for purchases. They offer a discount program called MyOffers, which manages your discounts and coupon offers, whether they're on paper, print, digital, etc. You can keep all of your discounts in one place for safe-keeping! They're also offering free shipping on orders over $39.

JCPenney

JC Penney is not just the place your parents go to get their khakis and polos. They offer so much more and have recently been offering tons of discounts online, along with their rewards program which can easily be accessed through your email. Also as a note of kindness, you can donate your gently-used clothes and household items to JCP as part of their #JCPGivesBack initiative.

Belk

Belk is another great online retailer! While their physical stores currently remain closed, they're offering discounts and deals on online purchases. You can check out the "Coupons" section listed on their homepage for weekly deals and online exclusives. They're currently offering a deal for 15% off any beauty items. And, they have free shipping on purchases $35 and up! 

Houzz

Houzz is a perfect place to shop for anyone looking to style their home. It's been a great resource for me to use while figuring out how to re-do my guest bedroom this past month. They sell furniture, decor, and products geared towards your home. They also have a selection of drop-off shipping services, including their "White Glove" service which involves unpacking boxes and light furniture assembly. Not only does Houzz sell home goods and furnishings, but they also have an entire section on their website dedicated to home decor ideas, tips, and inspiration.
