The festive season is almost here, and, hence, e-commerce giants are leaving no stone unturned to woo customers.
The festive season is almost here, and, hence, e-commerce giants are leaving no stone unturned to woo customers. Given the plethora of online sales via various portals, customers need to know how they can fully capitalise on every sale. First of all, it’s imperative to prepare a list of goodies one is keen on buying but may have held back due to cost constraints, according to a Snapdeal spokesperson. Having a list of to-buy items keeps customers wholly prepared to purchase the moment they discover an excellent bargain, as per the spokesperson of SnapDeal.
Apart from this, it’s essential that customers keep a close watch on flash sales offering steep discounts. Flash sales and festive season offers are the best time to buy even undiscovered but useful products – besides the always-wanted-to-buy merchandise – because discounts can soar as high as 80%.
How to get maximum discount?
-To maximise overall discounts during festive buying, customers can combine several schemes, such as bank offers on credit or debit cards, the redemption of rewards points, etc.
- Another crucial point is to shop as early as possible because discounted items can run out of stock faster than expected. ‘The early bird gets the worm’ is an apt adage in the case of flash or festive sales.
- Therefore, if sales are slated to begin at midnight on a specific day, customers should ensure they treat it like New Year’s Eve and stay wide awake to grab the best offers while the going is still good with plenty of stocks available.
In many cases, the best offers with limited stocks can be over within minutes, leaving customers with deep regret for not having been ready for the gong to begin shopping the moment the sales opened. What all to check out before buying?
Before making a purchase it always advisable to go through product videos, ratings and reviews to identify the best-selling products.
In driving better bargains, this would also be a good time to grab previous-edition items of brands, which may otherwise be heavier on the wallet.
