Wondering how Twitter can help you save money? There are some cool and interesting ways in which Twitter can lend you a helping hand when it comes to saving money. In times like these when even a few dollars in the pocket is much appreciated, there are certain weird yet interesting money saving methods. While Twitter may not help you save precious time, it certainly can be credited with effort on helping us save money.
· Find the right deals and coupons
When you spend less you in fact save more. Rather than hopping from one store to another in the hope of striking the right deal, it is always better to follow a bunch of deal hunters who supply you with information on the best deals and coupons. Twitter is well represented by retailers who are only more than willing to give out exclusive coupon codes and deals with an aim to attract customers. These deal hunters give out information on Twitter regarding the best deals available. Many popular companies have Twitter accounts with the intention of giving out links to deals they are presently offering.
· Reign in the bill on gas using FuelFrog
The prices of gas has spiked tremendously over the years. Although spending on gas is a necessary expenditure, the amount each of us spends on gas has grown exponentially over the years. Twitter application called the FuelFrog lets you calculate the amount of gas you have presently filled in your tank, the cost of the same and the mileage between each fill. The application then calculates your average fuel consumption. This tool can actually help you understand your driving and spending habits.
· Disgruntled customer? Tweet about it
When a disgruntled customer tweets about his displeasure about a service or a product, it forces the company in question to respond to the complaint. When you use the Twitter platform to air your complaints about a company’s product or service you are forcing the company to take quick positive action. It’s highly unlikely that companies would want bad publicity coming from thousands of potential users.
· Stay away from investments that don’t work
Over the past few years, stock markets have taken quite a fall. And the worst idea in the present economic condition is to take a plunge into the already dwindling stock market. To help you avoid a bad investment, Twitter consolidates all the tweets published about trading companies. Equipped with information about the company in the form of tweets, links to articles found on other sites, and tweets from other Twitter account holders, you can make informed decisions when it comes to investing in stock market.
· Compare and contrast
Before you go ahead and buy the product that you’ve been eyeing on for quite some time, it’s better to spend a minute on Twitter. Twitter helps you compare and contrast the prices of products so that you get the best price.
· Don’t message, just tweet.
There is yet another way that can help you save money. It’s very simple and effective. With Twitter you can save money spent on each SMS and MMS. You can use Twitter as a free option for sending text messages.
As helpful and weird as these tips may sound to many of us, one thing is true, that this time around Twitter finds itself in the good books of users.
