Ready to make your confession as a shopaholic? But, have you been guilty of the cardinal sins of shopping? Overpaying when you could be saving hundreds of dollars instead? Purchasing out of date items? Maybe even skipping sampling and then regretting your decision. Whether you are a seasoned shopaholic or just wetting your feet into the luxurious pool of opulent indulgence that is shopping, we’ve got your covered.
Read on to find secret shopping hacks you knew nothing about:
Return discounted items
We’ve all been there. You’ve just purchased something, only to watch its price drop. In case the return window is open, promptly return the item and purchase it again to get the new bargain rate.
Vouchers are your friends
A sneaky trick is to make a complaint to the brands’ customer service team. They will oftentimes readily give you vouchers or credit notes to appease you, which you can then redeem while shopping.
Know when to shop
When it comes to scoring the best bargains, cashing in on discount sales is crucial with most stores offering the biggest discounts on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. You can also sign up on your favorite brands’ websites, ensuring that you receive discount codes, straight to your inbox, on your birthday.
Know your measurements
While shopping online can be super convenient, it can also be tedious and expensive when it comes to returns. To make the most of it, know your measurements as well how different brands vary their sizes.
Find the best discounts
Before finalizing your orders, always run a search online. You will usually find dozens of discount codes which can end up saving you a ton of money.
Skip the virtual basket
A lot of websites today will send you offers and discounts if you fill your online shopping cart and then close the browser. Make the most of these discount offers.
Wait for the best deals
If you don’t mind waiting, there are websites like Love Sales and Alertr that will notify you regarding any price drops on your favorite items.
Skip the delivery cost
To avoid delivery costs, simply load up your order till you reach the minimum spend for free delivery and then return the items that you don’t want. Alternatively, you could also place a single order including your friend’s items.
