Can shopping become saving?
In today’s gadget-ridden world with its hectic pace of life, what activity can relieve your stress and also be fun and enjoyable at the same time? For most it is shopping. If you belong to that category of people, here's an infographic that will help you get your priorities right as you engage in your favourite stress buster.
Let’s look at ways and means to avoid bills that dampen your shopping spirit.
1. Wait for ‘around the year’ SALE!
Seasonal sales, festival sales, promotional sales, end of season sales, clearance sales etc. are big money savers.
2. Register for loyalty programs
Banks reward you points on every transaction, which can be later redeemed for cash back or other benefits.
3. Buy in bulk
Buy large quantities (most come with money saver packs) to get bigger discounts.
4. Buy guaranteed / warrantied products
Results in significant savings if the product malfunctions.
5. Consider rental or second-hand
Buy books accessories etc., at heavily discounted prices second hand. Rentals suited for cars, camera for holidays etc.
6. Buy out of season
Buy summer items in winter and vice versa.
7. Buy Online
Buy online with ‘free shipping’ and ‘cash on delivery’ to enjoy online discounts with offline features.
