End of financial year shopping tips
As with every major sale time, there is always the possibility that you could end up spending way too much on products you don’t actually need or want. To make the most of the end of financial year sales, prepare a list of things to buy and a potential budget at least a couple of weeks in advance. You can then do some research on various retailers to find out who exactly is offering the best discounts closer to the date.
Some other useful tips are as follows:
- Consider if you actually need the product: An easy pitfall to fall into during the end of financial year sales time is impulse shopping. Do you really need that 4K TV when your current one already gives you excellent picture quality? As the majority of appliances will be reduced to an extent, you’ll need to think long and hard about what you need and what you don’t need.
- What is the initial recommended retail price (RRP): Almost everything will be under its RRP during the end of financial year sales, but you should make sure you research prices properly to get an idea of just how good that bargain really is.
- Do your research to find it cheaper! Price matching is a great way to save money on new appliances. If you spot a good price online, consider asking about it in store.
