online. imagine i'm at a website and put items into my virtual cart but then i just walk away. >> excuse me. miss, you left some items in your cart. here's a coupon for 10% off. >> uh-huh. very dramatic dramatization but here's how it works online. you find something you want at a retailer's website. this next step is important. you have to have an account and be signed in. now the magic. click off. leave the site and don't buy the item. sure enough, last week i went to seven different retail web sites and put a few items into my cart. then i clicked off the sites without buying. within 24 hours i had three reminders about my abandoned carts, two discounts offers, one for $20 and another for 20% off. i'd save about $40 on the orders i was considering. if you're shopping for a big ticket item or a lot of things say for back to school, it's
worth trying. list track studies stated the longer you wait for the e-mail the better. most companies who send e-mails about abandoned carts don't offer a discount code till the third reminder. fear not, frugalistas. the deal code is not dead. just a little harder to find. becky worley, abc news new york. >> who knew? >> i still feel coupons need to be clipped out of the sunday papers. >> seriously? >> i miss that tradition. >> do they still have those? >> they still have them. >> all broadcasters 50% off. >> there's a coupon for us? >> what? why should we be 50? i would start with 10%. >> but we're in demand. we don't have to go on sale. what's wrong with you all? it's like nobody wants to buy us.
