Smart shopping: secrets that every bargain hunter needs to know
- Weight Loss
Shopping and saving money at the same time!
It has been proven: shopping is healthy.
But it is less favorable for your wallet.
And that is annoying because as we showed earlier: there is always a reason to shop.
But, do not panic! With these tips you can smartly shop and keep your money over.
Go back during sale
How frustrating: you have bought a fantastic skirt / pants / sweater / jacket and a week later it is half the price between the sale items.
If you still have the receipt (and the item looks as good as new) you can go back to the store and reclaim the difference.
If you have not worn the item yet, and the card is still attached, you are also entitled to this as a customer (provided you return with the item within two weeks).
Focus on certain items
Besides that it obviously works very well to only buy items that you really need, you can save extra on certain items. Think for example of jackets or a little black dress.
These items last a long time and you should be able to wear them at any time, so you can simply purchase them from the previous collection (and therefore much cheaper!).
Avoid trend-sensitive items that you probably will not wear after a while. Waste of your money..
Become friends with a sales employee
Super convenient, an inside source.
He or she knows exactly when the sale starts and where the bargains are. If you are really big friends, you may even use his or her employee discount.
Sign up for newsletters
Many shops and web shops regularly organize something for their regular customers.
Think of a shopping night where you can score the newest items with a big discount, or you can shop as a regular customer during the sale.
Look for discount codes
Bargain hunters are happy to help each other.
That is why there are regular discount codes on the internet for all kinds of web shops.
Just google so before you count online!
Follow your favorite (web) stores on social media
Your favorite (web) store is definitely busy collecting followers and likes for social media.
And there are often nice actions involved! Discount codes, offers or an early sale : you are the first to know!
Ask for a discount
Is an item damaged, but is it still recoverable?
Then it is worth asking for a discount.
If you are a little handy yourself, it costs you nothing to make it. And otherwise you look at your mother.
Deals down below
Especially supermarkets are good at it: the most expensive products are at eye level, the cheapest are at the bottom.
It is therefore worthwhile to lower your knees! But clothing stores also work according to the principle: if you want cheaper, you have to make an effort.
The most expensive items are in sight, in places where everyone walks by. So do not forget the afterwards corners and high shelves!
Twice a year the sample sale is time. This means that brands sell the collections they use for the marketing season or the press lending for small prices (for example 25% of the sales price).
There are various forums that keep track of where and when the sample sales are, but brands often communicate this via their own social media.
Another reason to follow your favorite brand!
