By Cynthia Nellis, About.com

The golden rule of smart shoppers is to maximize each purchase.That doesn't always mean getting the best price, but getting the best price for what you really want. Find out more secrets of highly successful sale shoppers.

1. Off-Season Reaps Best Deals
2. Learn Sale Lingo
3. Make Friends With Sales Staff
4. End-of-Season Gives Best Selection
5. Invest in Classics
6. Don't be Tempted by Odds and Ends
7. Beware Coupons and Buy-One-Get-One-Half-Price

Retailers often put stipulations on coupons, such as requiring you to buy a certain amount before they take a discount (e.g. $10 off $50 or more). It sounds like a deal, but that example only amounts to a measly 20% discount. Select shoppers know they only save about 25% when they buy-one-get-one-half-price (ex: you pay $50 for one item, $25 for the next: Total of $75 on what would have been $100 purchase, thereby only saving 25%).
