She says it’s incredibly easy to guess what coupon codes will unlock major savings as plenty of websites use the same ones.
She said: “It’s really easy to guess coupon codes, it’s really easy. First try WELCOME10, then try WELCOME15, then try WELCOME.
“Then try the name of the company plus 10. If it’s a more hip company, try something like HELLO.
“I was once trying to buy something from this company called Mellow and so I tried HELLOMELLOW and it worked.
“You’d be surprised, good luck.”
Over two million people saw Brigette’s TikTok and took the opportunity to share their own online shopping hacks.
One commenter suggested: “Stuff like ‘spring’, ‘easter’, ‘shipping’, ‘Christmas’ and so on if often a thing too from my experience.
A second person had another idea, writing: “Try insta girlies names like Sara20 or Emily20, works every time!”
One person joked: “I tried ‘please’ once because I was desperate and it worked haha”.
However, another person explained that it may be a great idea as many businesses use it, saying: “Sorry20 works a lot too”.
For those who are social media proficient, there might be a trick that will cut down on the time it takes to figure out a usable discount code as a commenter showed off their genius thought process.
They shared: “I always go to the company’s Instagram and then go to their tagged photos and scroll through them to see if any collaborations has been done this week.”
Some workers were also getting in on the action as one person said: “I worked customer service and created these for companies… try SORRY, SOSORRY, SORRY10, SORRY15. Used that all the time when we made a mistake.”
An e-commerce employee also handed out some behind the scenes information as they shared a code that tends to work quite often.
They wrote: “I work with different e-commerce websites and you would be surprised the amount of times there’s a coupon named TEST”.
