A smart shopper knows how to save money and get everything on their list. The next time you’re shopping, consider the following tips and tricks!

Save before you splurge

Set up recurring transfers from your checking account to your savings account for tiny amounts (like $1 a day or $10 a week) that will have little-to-no daily impact but can yield big results in the long term.

Shop with a list

Determine what items you need before leaving the house or jumping online to avoid impulse and unneeded purchases.

Use smarter ways to pay

Your TCF debit card keeps you protected while you shop with zero fraud liability. Try out these easy, safe ways to pay for your next shopping spree.

Beat boredom spending

Avoid spending money simply because you’re bored. Instead, funnel free time toward entertainment options that don’t cost much at all—like reading a book, playing a game on your phone, or giving friends and family a call to see how they’re doing.
