SALES Tips

  • Compare prices on your internet smartphone before buying to make sure that you actually are getting a bargain.
  • The biggest reductions come towards the end of the sales season, i.e. Christmas stock can go from 33% off to 50% off to 70% off to 80% off over the week after Christmas.
  • Don't be fooled by the "WAS" price, usually retailers raise the price just prior to the sales so it looks as though there has been a deep price cut when in reality the cut is far smaller or none existant. My general rule is that a real price cut is at least 50% which means buying at a 33% discount may mean your actually going to be paying the same or even higher price than at an earlier date during 2011, again check online to confirm the real market price before buying.
  • Use a cash back credit card such as Capital One Circle to earn cash back.
  • Make a list of items that you really need to prevent buying of junk.
  • Look for discount vouchers in newspapers.
  • Set yourself a budget and don't go over it.
  • Don't get into debt, there is no point saving 25% in the sales then paying 25% and beyond interest on purchases during 2012!
  • AVOID PAY DAY LOANS AT ALL COSTS! - Don't even think about it! These are nothing more than legalised loan sharks.
