6 Best Online Shopping Hacks for this Festive Season!
Festive season is here! You see a sale at every corner, of not only markets but also on your phone. Yes, every other app will have some or the other sale which will make shopping more of a task than a pleasure. Decided to come up with hacks, which will not only help you save time & money — but also help you keep your peace of mind while you try and shop online.
- Know what you want
It is very easy to get carried away and just check out deals — trust me, you will end up with impulsive purchases. Know what you exactly want to buy, this will narrow down choice, save time & energy big time. It’s easier to look for something specific than to look through crores of products.
2. Be open to view Similar Products
A lot of times you might get almost the same thing at a better price or maybe a better design in the similar price range, if you are open to view options. Another brand, similar design, different app — as long as you are not stuck totally there is always a better option available.
3. Always Compare Prices
Don’t be blinded or fooled by that 80% off deal — it might turn out that the MRP has been inflated or it might be available for 90% off somewhere else. Know the right apps for particular products (like I will buy fashion products by Jabong or Myntra, I rely on Flipkart & Paytm for electronics etc.) — and always check out the prices amongst at least 3 apps before you buy.
4. Deal with the Sold-out situation
Liked something but it’s out of stock? That’s ok! These apps are here to sell, sooner or later it will come back — but it might be at a higher price. Find it on another platform before it’s sold out there as well or read point no. 2 and look for similar products :)
5. Coupons! Coupons! Coupons!
7 out of 10 times there will be coupons available which will make you save money, offer you a cashback, get you a discount coupon or give you a free product! You just need to find it.
So, I understand it’s easier said than done. It might sound like these are easy — but yes you are right in thinking that who has the patience to open up 7 different apps to check prices in all of them — or even view similar products. But I also know the pain you go through when you find out your friend bought that dress at 500 bucks cheaper than you, or how you brother got a cashback of 5k on the phone both of you bought! So, here is the biggest hack of hack
