It’s always exciting during sale events but having to work your way to get the best discounts is a little tricky since expectedly, a lot of people will flock the mall and buy their favorite items just as you do.
Having a list of the sales items ahead of time and having some kind of a plan can save you a lot of time and effort during the sale day itself.
As SM City Iloilo holds its 3-Day Sale this March 16-18, 2018, you might as well arm yourself with helpful tips on how to get the most of your bargain shopping to get the best deals on top of the up to 70% discount on selected items and more.
Familiarize yourself with prices. If you want to be able to find bargains, you should be able to recognize a good deal. Therefore, before you go out shopping for an item, spend some time learning the usual retail prices so you know that you are really getting the best discount.
Bargain hunt online. Browse the website or social media site of your favorite store online if they have and look for updates about their sale offers. It will also be a helpful tool since you can inquire about other deals available.
Check Sale Advertisements. In local newspapers, ads are usually placed 1 to 2 weeks ahead or during the sale week, to give you a sneak pick of the offerings. These may contain food offers and other products. For example, SM Foodcourt and SM Foodhall tenant offers freebies and discounts that will let you enjoy your food experience while having a break from shopping.
Be on the lookout for special discounts. Many people don’t realize how many specialized discounts stores offer. You may be surprised to find more treats aside from what you are used to.
Follow your favorite stores on social media. Stores often post about upcoming sales and discounts on social media accounts. Following a variety of your favorite stores on Facebook can help you spot sales early on. SM City Iloilo has an official facebook page you can look up for updates.
Looking up in FB can also give you valuable information about being first to shop or how to reserve your items. Or better yet, what additional discounts you can get like a 10 percent additional in the first 2 hours and privileges of having an SM Advantage Card.
Learn sale periods. If possible, it’s best to learn the specific sales cycles for your favorite stores or mall. Like for SM City Iloilo, the 3 Day Sale is scheduled every March and September of each year.
This way, you can plan to shop during times when you’ll find the most discounts. And of course have time to save up for that item you’ve been wanting to buy.
