Well, the shopping festival is here. Yes, this is quite a festival for all. The idea of crazy sale during the festival season was spurred by Indian e-com giant Flipkart, and gradually it became viral among all other online shopping sites since last year.
Amazon India, Snapdeal, Shopclues, Myntra, and of course, Flipkart all are on a ride to grab the festive market with unbelievable discounts on every product.
But with heavy discounts on the trawl, we all tend to buy even the products we actually don't require. Also, selecting the right product at the biggest discount along with a cashback offer from the correct site is actually a difficult task as the deals are limited.
So, before you get ready with your laptop to spend some money online, don't forget to check these 7 ways to grab the best deals before its gets over.
It's All About Timing
This is actually a race for every e-com site to book the date first. For instance, Amazon Great Indian Festival is the first among all to kick start the crazy shopping spree on October 1st andFlipkart, Snapdeal and all others started on the next day.
However, have you ever realized we all wait for the second day when the actual competition begins? While a big chunk of deals start at midnight on any site, get ready with a planning before the shopping gate opens and grab the best deal at first.
Read the Reviews First
As the sale of the day starts, many shoppers get awed by the massive discounts and buy things that are not needed. So, get well prepared and informed about a product by reading its reviews before you spend.
Be the Premium Member
Many shopping sites give a privilege offer to get to see the deals first that is well before the sale begins for all. Like, get signed up with Amazon Prime and be the first one to grab the deals 30 mins before others.
Also, it's important to mention that Amazon Prime is a paid subscription. However, the e-com giant has the first-month-free trial offer. So, don't just be a shopper, be a Smart Shopper.
Do A Card Transaction
This festival season not only the shopping sites but also the banks provide eye-catching offers on those who pay using cards. For instance, Amazon India gives special discounts for HDFC bank users, while SBI card users get extra 10% discount and cashback offers.
Look for the Shipping Charges
Don't just get away with the discounted rates as it is also important to look at the shipping charges. If you get heavy discounts on products, you are likely to be asked to pay high shipping charges, which at the end of the day may cost you almost the same if you buy during non-festive days.
Get additional cashback with coupons
If you are a frequent online shopper, you must have gone through sites like Coupondunia, Grabon, Couponraja to get some extra off on the discounted rates.
This shopping festival as well coupon destinations like Coupondunia pay extra offers to the members. So, if you are a member, you can also get a chance to grab some lucrative deals here.
Hit the Head of the Nail
This festive season, don't get carried away with crazy deals. Head straight for the products you have been waiting to buy for a long time.
