Money-Saving Secrets

Sunday, June 12, 2016
Having two of my best friends getting married next year, not to mention my employment in a wedding industry, have induced me to explore loads of bridal references nowadays. Personally, my way to find inspiration is by browsing around catalogues where I can find something from gifts, accessories to decoration. But you know, girls will always be girls, we get lured quite easily. In spite of my primary intention, I tend to end up buying things that don't belong in my priority list. Who's to blame anyway when shopping is just one click away?

Obviously, shopping online is unavoidable in this modern world due to its ease to access, but let's see in a bigger picture, isn't it a positive development? Catalogue shopping provides you with a cost-effective alternative to conventional stores on the high street. But if you want to make more savings, read these three tips on how to save money whilst shopping through online catalogues.

Discover low-interest rates

How much interest you pay on your purchases can vary from one retailer to the next. To save money, shop around for catalogues that offer low-interest rates, something that could bag you a significant saving in the long run. Some companies won't charge you any interest at all if you pay off your balance within a certain a time frame. For example, Very enables customers to pay for a purchase in three monthly instalments and won't charge interest if the balance is settled during this period. Other companies, like Argos, also won't charge you interest if you pay your balance in time. Many places offer catalogue finance, but choosing the right company is just as important as choosing the dress or pair of shoes you are looking for.

Use a price comparison website

One way to save money on catalogues is to use a price comparison website, where you can compare the prices of different products (everything from laptops to kettles, beds to clothes) in one place. The result? You find the retailer that is offering a product for the cheapest price. You can also head over to third party websites where you can read reviews left by customers who have used a catalogue company in the past, providing you with all the must-know details about a particular brand before you apply for a credit account.

Use a voucher code

More and more catalogue retailers offer voucher codes to customers. These promotions enable you to save money on the cost of a purchase or get reduced delivery just by entering a code when you check-out and pay for your items. Look for voucher codes that provide you with the biggest savings. Don't forget to sign up for mailing lists too! You can have the latest promotions and discount codes sent to your email address directly.

Alrighty, then... I couldn't think of any other tips. So if you bumblebees have your own more efficient way to get the best deal online, let me know in the comments section below!

  5. I don't like paying shipping, so I always try to use a voucher code, and/or order items where I don't have to pay shipping at all or very low amount. :)

  23. I never used vouchers before. By this I will definitely look up for it first! My number one weapon to minimize the outcome is looking for free shipping, because it helps me much! To frankly say, the shipping costs almost 30-40% much than the stuffs themselves :(
