1. Sign up to stores and leave items in your cart overnight
When you put items in your cart and then leave the browser, stores may send you a friendly email in the next few days, reminding you about your pending checkout. Most of the time, it comes with a special discount code to help convince you.
2. Sign up to their newsletter
Signing up means you give the store permission to send you email updates of new stock arrivals, marketing material AND any exclusive discounts. As a new member, signing up provides you with a one-time deal and if their emails start to spam your inbox, you can always unsubscribe in the future.
3. Unsubscribe to their newsletter
Once you are subscribed to a retailer’s newsletter, you get emails almost everyday or every second day. They do this as a form of marketing and it provides a sense of customer loyalty. What happens when you unsubscribe? More than likely, the store will send you an email a day or two later asking you why… and maybe providing you with a sneaky discount code to convince you to come back!
4. Tell them when your birthday is
Happy Birthday! Yes, some retailers are nice enough to send you a birthday discount code or a small gift box.
5. Know when the sale events are
Sale events are a time to shop and there sure is a lot of them that run throughout the year. Here is a calendar of them all to help you know when to shop!
January: Continuance of Boxing Day sale period
March: Afterpay Day
April: Vogue Online Shopping Night
May: Click Frenzy Mayhem
June-July: EOFY sales
August: Afterpay Day
October: Vogue Online Shopping Night
November: Click Frenzy, Singles Day, Black Friday, Cyber Monday
December: Boxing Day
6. Book it on a deal day
Airlines can be dedicated to their “happy hour” sales. Look for prices and flights beforehand and jump on them when the hour of sale comes around.
7. Look out for promo codes on free shipping
Finding a great deal on a product and then getting an outrageous shipping price is honestly heartbreaking. While some retailers offer free shipping all year round, others charge prices that you can’t possibly justify.
8. Ask for a discount
If there is an online chat window available, use them at your advantage. Most of us ignore them but they can actually assist with size guides, tell you more about the product you wish to purchase or give you a discount code just for chatting to them.
9. Use Click & Collect to avoid shipping costs
If you want to avoid shipping costs, using in-store pickup (known as Click & Collect) is a lot more handy than you may think. It may not work for every store but it can save you adding unnecessary items to your cart, in order to be valid for free shipping.
10. Browse their social media account
Retailers that utilise their social media accounts are doing something right. It’s a great place to for them to maintain their regular following, interact with their customers in a more casual setting and offer sneaky surprises that may not be available to everyone.
