Why do you think I am an online shopaholic? Hahah cos I know I can get so much better deals online.
And now I am going to share with you a few money saving tips when shopping online.
1. Look for things on promotion/house brands.
For example, when shopping in Zalora, Zalora brand items are usually cheaper and have more discount.
When I shop in Asos, I look for Asos brand items as well, unless I am specifically looking for a certain piece from a specific brand.
And there is always discounted items. They are still beautiful and nice! So choose “Sale” button or “Clearance” button if you see it.
Look at my latest haul from clearance items.. These items were cut down 40-70% from the normal price and still looks so stylish!! Now you know why I have so many clothes. Hahah.
2. Use your credit card instead of Paypal or Bank transfer.
Please do keep in mind that security comes first (make sure it is a secure site & network!)
No public wifi when shopping online.
But credit cards often give points or cashback…. those add up! You could even change points for cash vouchers, and do more shopping!!
I have changed over RM200 in Jusco cash vouchers from credit card points once.
Grocery was free for 2 months!
3. Use cashback sites – Like Shopback!
ShopBack provides cashback for online shopping
This I will go into detail cos I know many of you have not heard of cashback sites, like Shopback
I personally like to use Shopback cos it is so easy!! The interface is super user friendly.
So all you have to do is go to Shopback website – www.shopback.my and register an account.
There are so many brands to choose from!!! You can find so many of online shops to choose from such as FoodPanda, GroupOn, Zalora and Lazada!
I have not shopped from Dorothy Perkins before, but I might try it out soon cos I love their dresses but couldn’t afford them with my shopping budget. Maybe when I save enough cashback money! haha.
Once you choose the shop you can see what offers and cashbacks they offer for the website you have chosen.
They will write the terms and conditions, so you can be certain of your offers and cashbacks. Also, do remember!!! That you HAVEE to shop throught the shopback website by clicking the “SHOP NOW” button cos I lost around RM10 cashback once by forgetting to shop through the website… SADDD…
You will get another reminder on your cashback conditions. I do appreciate this as sometimes I forget that there might be a minimum order or if I need to use a certain credit card to pay.
And off you are to the website to shop!!!
And that is it.
This is how I do my online shopping!
