The Top Tips For Becoming A Savvy Bargain Hunter
Tip 1- Search Online For Those ‘Got To Haves’
Researching online for those ‘must haves’ in advance is the way to go. The beauty of doing research online and your shopping is that it can be done from anywhere you have got internet access! Relaxing on the couch with your computer at home is much more preferable compared to the other option. Making a mad dash to a store and waiting in line with other enthusiastic shoppers. You have also got your phone.
So when you have some time, researching deals and shopping online is as simple as a few clicks.
Tip 2 – Write Yourself A-List
You have most likely got heaps of knitting items you have wished for, that would be an excellent addition to your knitting experience. Deals and sales at this time of year may mean that a new yarn winder/yarn swift or knitting machine is that much more affordable. Put together a list of ‘must haves,’ ‘wishes’ and ‘gifts for family and friends.’
Tip 3- Be Organised In Advance – Set Up Accounts Now
Most online stores prefer you to create online accounts with them. If you want to save time when shopping for those bargains on the big day, sign up to the stores you wish to buy with in advance.
There are tools out there that will remember all your passwords for you. One of the best of those is called LastPass. I use it and highly recommend it. 🙂
LastPass is a great way to create and store all your passwords. LastPass also makes it super easy to log in to each of the accounts you have created, as it saves all the necessary details for you.
Tip 4 – Have A Realistic Budget For Your Spending
Finding a bargain can be super exciting! However, you can get caught up in all that excitement and see yourself overspending very quickly! Set yourself a budget of how much you can spend before you get carried away. There is no fun in maxing out your credit card and then finding you cannot pay it all back without incurring interest.
Tip 5 – Safe and Secure Online Shopping
Be mindful of shopping securely when doing so online. When arriving at any online checkout page, be sure that it is secure. You will know that the page is protected because it will have “https” in the address and there will be a little locked green padlock icon on the left-hand side of the address bar.
Tip 6 – Compare Prices
Check out different online price comparison sites such as ShopSavvy for the items on your wish list before you shop. Then you will know what the current prices are like. Then research the stores/online or offline to check who is offering the best discounts.
Tip 7 – Be Consumer Aware – Return Policies
Make sure you read the fine print of what a sale item’s return policy is. Perhaps it is a short window for return or exchange only.
Tip 8 – Be a Bargain Hunter
Sign up for the retailers’ e-newsletters so that any awesome deals are delivered to your inbox.
See what your Credit Card Provider reward store has on offer. Then pay for your Black Friday shopping your credit card and top up your rewards.
Tip 9 – Get Social
Keep your eyes out on retailers’ social media pages, they often promote deals through twitter and facebook.
Tip 10 – Expect to Start Early – Really Early
Online stores never close so from the stroke of midnight in some cases, the super duper discounts may appear. Be ready to snag a bargain.
