You have your eyes for a Gucci bag or belt but it is too expensive? Don’t worry because every other trend-loving stylista has the same problem. You can have a nicely paying job but it's still too difficult to get all your favorite brands. The prices are often simply too high and the accessories are irresistible too. So what can you do?
Believe it or not but you can still buy plenty of pretty stuff from your favorite brands at a lower price. It may be difficult but it's not impossible. If you love fashion, then you obviously keep up with lifestyle magazines and, of course, your favorite brands. Therefore, you are always in the know when a certain event is going to take place. These often include sales and launches. And this means discounts.
Get your wallets and yourself ready, because I'm going to discuss multiple ways you can get your favorite brands at a low price:
Check the online store for your favorite brand. They often feature time-based discounts. You need to purchase a certain product within a prescribed time limit to earn the discount. You will notice a considerable difference in price in comparison to the retail outlets.
This may be a bit of a hassle but if you really love that item, you can make the effort. Sales often take place annually, at the end of seasons or for clearance purposes. Sale seasons are pretty big in retail so it's pretty hard to miss the announcements if you use social media.
It may not be possible with certain high-end brands but many retail fashion brands and boutiques will offer this feature. If you have been buying from the same brand for a few years, they will honor you with a loyalty card. The card can be used to avail special discounts.
Introductory or Promotional Discounts
Many brands offer introductory discounts when they launch a new product line. This is tricky because you may not be interested in the new products. However, it is a win-win situation in case it was exactly what you were waiting for. The time frame for discounts is quite limited so you have to be quick.
Outlet & Discount Stores
Outlets are a great place to score that one item you have been eyeing. As well as, discount stores like TJ Maxx, Marshalls, or Ross. You may have to drive a little distance to an outlet mall or maybe hope to see it in a TJ Maxx but at least, you will finally get that dress you had on your wish list for weeks.
Exhibitions and Festivals
Popular brands, typically those that sell cosmetics, bed, and bath etc. will take part in exhibition events. Stalls are set up and often discounts are available to level out the competition field at the event. Do check if your favorite brand is participating in an event near you.
With a little bit of keeping up and quick action, you can certainly buy from your favorite brands at a low price.
Hope that helps guys!
