  • Diwali Sales are just round the corner with the festive season being India’s most celebrated occasion.

Thus, we bring to you some productive Online Shopping Tips & Tricks to bag the Best Deals during the upcoming Festival Season Sales.

    Participate in Contests

    These mega online sales often come up with fun contests, games, quizzes, etc. These are not only simple, but also rewarding. You might end up winning vouchers which will save you on your shopping in the sale. Besides, companies also give cash prizes (wallet money) and free products in rewards so you never know if you get lucky!

    Apply Bank Offers

    Bank offers are the next big thing during online sales. Mostly, they get you an extra 10% discount for online payment via their cards and other payment methods. Thus, it adds to your savings. However, make sure to go through their T&C’s properly or you might end up without getting the offer. If you don’t have access to the relevant banks, you can ask for help in online shopping communities as users here keep on sharing more & saving more! This is just like we saw the Importance of E-Commerce during Lockdown.

    Checkout Quickly

    It is possible that the deal you have an eye on might be unavailable the very next second. This is due to ‘out of stock’ issues due to heavy traffic during the sale. Thus, make sure to add your contact, payment, and shipping details before-hand for a faster checkout. This is important also because session time during sales might be less for processing huge numbers of orders simultaneously.

    Get a Membership

    You might be well aware of Amazon Prime, Flipkart Plus, Myntra Insider, and others. These membership plans are life saviours during the sale. They provide benefits like higher discounts, more deals, early access, exclusive offers, free & fast shipping, loyalty points, and more. Also, these subscription plans might be having good discounts during the sale so that makes it a win-win situation.

    Check Deal Sites

    There are many deals that are truly worthy, but how do you get to know about them? Well, this is when deal sites come into picture. They curate the best deals for online shoppers along with proper description on how to avail them. However, there are also sites which have more marketing gimmicks so beware. You might also get to know some unknown coupon codes which might save you amazingly well as we saw How Is Coupons Industry Thriving Post COVID 19. Also, it keeps you updated with the latest sale news. Lastly, you get all deals under one roof so you don’t have to go here & there. For instance, these Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale offers on a deal site are a worthy grab.

    Check Cashback Sites

    There are many cashback sites which give you cashback on shopping via them. You simply need to visit them first and then visit the sale page to make your purchase. Some of them also allow you to transfer the cashback amount to a bank account while you can also redeem it on your next shopping orders. Thus, you save via both sale offers and cashback earnings, but again T&C’s are a bit tricky here. You will get used to them as you gain more experience. Here is a cashback site with Flipkart Big Billion Days Sale offers for your reference.

    Check Sale Pages

    Online shopping sites keep on bringing in new sale pages for category-wise deals. Thus, you can browse through them for your favorite category deals. Also, everyday (during the sale) you will find new updates with offers and sale news on these pages.

    Keep your cart empty

    If you have an item in your cart which you are willing to buy during the sale beforehand, then it is possible that you will see the old price and not the sale price. Thus, always keep your cart empty before shopping in the sale. Also, after adding items you can keep them in the cart for sometime to check if the sale price reduces. 

    Don’t Wishlist

    Wishlisting products before the sale might give an indication of what you are willing to buy or how much you will spend in the sale. This might result in less savings as there might be no price-drop for these products. Thus, make your wishlist once the sale starts. However, you can bookmark the products you wanna buy.

    Check Digital Wallets

    Digital Wallets are on a boom these days in India. There are many of them who tie-up for online sale discounts and cashbacks for using them as online payment methods. Some of the popular ones you can keep an eye on are Paytm, Amazon Pay, Google Pay, PayZapp, Mobikwik, Freecharge, and PhonePe.

    Compare Final Effective Price

    As there are many online marketplaces having festive sales parallely, you can check for your desired products on all of them. It is very much possible that the same products are available on many sale sites. Also, their prices may differ along with product quality, warranty, and other important T&C’s. Besides, after applying bank offers, coupons, etc you might see a difference in their final effective prices. Thus, compare these to shop at the best prices.

    We hope these saving tips will help you to enjoy your Diwali 2021 online shopping at its best!
