THE Covid-19 pandemic has us spending more time indoors, ultimately turning shopping into an almost entirely virtual experience.
Gone are the days of braving long queues at the payment counter.
Instead we are faced with the equally stressful experience of collecting coupons, battling for first-come-first-served promotions, and clicking on that checkout button – that always manages to freeze or hang when we’re ready to make our purchase.
But it does not always have to be a stressful experience.
With simple tips and proper planning, getting the most out of our monthly shopping experience – like today’s 10.10 sale – can be as easy as a walk in the park.
Here are some tips to get you started:
1. Make a list: While this may sound like a no-brainer, do not underestimate the power of a list. Create columns and prioritise what must be on the list and what can wait. Your wallet will thank you.
2. Do your research: Now that you have secured your items, it’s time to do your research to get the best bang for your buck. Dig deep and find out where the best deals are across various shopping platforms. Plus, keep an eye out for free delivery offers or special coupons that might just slash prices down further.
3. Read the reviews: Don’t forget to do your research on the product. The best way to do this is by reading real-life testimonies. While the seller may promise you the moon, reviews are a better depiction of what you might be buying.
4. Streamline your shopping platforms: It can be tempting to purchase numerous items across multiple shopping platforms to maximise discounts, but this can also be confusing and tiring. Streamline and prioritise – it makes your shopping experience a much more enjoyable one while also keeping your shipping fees low.
5. Lookout for loyalty rewards: Do you gravitate towards a certain platform or company? Be sure to keep an eye out for special loyalty promotions that reward you for being a repeat customer.
