If someone has not heard We are in crisis. Economic, not from the sentimental. Or also. But we will, that which affects the Pocket, and therefore to our shopping, it is the economic. That is falling is quite logical that we can take account and elect to reduce, or even eliminate, that part of the budget that we are spending to grow our wardrobe.
As well, today I want to tell you about a pretty good alternative for those who want to keep buying items of quality and brands, but at one lower cost and without having to wait for markdowns. This option to keep in mind are the private sale clubs online.
For those who do not know them, these clubs are a kind of outlets in which, for a limited time, they are throwing campaigns of different brands that offer a range of items to a price rather reduced. We support these clubs alerts receive daily or weekly (as each if you prefer) an e-mail campaigns that are active and the next planned.
What is the key of these clubs? Maybe quite simple: in the majority of cases, the brands marketed through them items or items of basic or previous seasons that do not go out of fashion. So being a bit pending and with patience, We can find real bargains that are out of date.
What Club do I subscribe?
Are many and very different clubs of private sale sold in Spain, but I’m going to focus only on five: Ofertix, BuyVip, Privalia, Showroomprive and vente privé. In general there are not too many differences between them, and sometimes we can see how some of them are repeated the same firms with similar items.
My advice is to all you suscribáis and you choose the option of receive daily alerts to be always aware of when you start campaigns. Who knows … you have No obligation to buy, but it is quite possible that suddenly you find you with your brand fetish reduced to 50%. Better be aware, no?
In addition, there are real professionals in finding bargains through this process and which manage to wake up early to book everything you like. So there goes another key tip: when you meet a campaign that you want to buy, see Adding to your cart compulsively all garments that you like in your size. Once they are in it, you have them reserved for a period of time and no one can take them off. When you’ve gone through all the showcase, go to your cart and see releasing that which you do not want. So you have more chance of success.
My personal experience
Based on my personal experience, I can just recommend buying through this formula. I am subscribed to all those clubs that I mentioned above, but I have only bought two of them, Privalia and Ofertix, that took more than four years.
Orders that I’ve ever done have come the deadline and when I wanted to refund because the product I did not quite convince, I have been able to do so without problem, with the economic penalty involved, and clear. But they have returned the rest of the money I instantly.
My latest acquisitions include a Polo Fred Perry, sunglasses RayBan sunglasses, perfume Clinique Happy, Adidas sneakers and others converse. And very happy, the truth.
Of course, not everything is rosy and must take into account some disadvantages of buying this procedure. As I said before, if we want to return the product, we will have a small economic penalty that covers shipping costs. Something logical, but you have to take into account that it is not as in traditions stores, where, usually return us full money.
Must also take into account that the price of the items you have to add the shipping. In addition, we are going to take some time to have the product at home (usually between three weeks and a month), so it is not a formula suitable for impatient.
Long eye, moreover, with carvings. Many times let us take by the garment fits to the model and we imagine with biceps and pectorals. It is best to play it safe and bet by brands that we already know or garments that we more or less control. For example, for trousers, it is better to see how they are made, so I do not recommend risk online. In the case of the shoes, if we are not sure of the signature, it is best bet on one number, since if they are a little big, it could be a template. On the other hand, if you are small, there will be no solution.
And to finish, care to spend on purchases. To receive daily deals and be so very easy to fill our cart, it is more than likely that we will lose control and give you click everything that we like. A little restraint, please. To distinguish between what really is a good opportunity of consumerist gluttony. In addition, please note that campaigns tend to recur periodically, so if now is not the time to buy that pole so long have you been wanting to, or that perfume that you still have a little, wait a few weeks, that will end up becoming.
