We’re prepared a small guide to help you while you’re shopping online during sale week’s on big Amazon and Flipkart. Below mentioned few simple rules can not only ensure you get the best deals but also help you shop safely during the sale.
1. Compare prices
Amazon offers The most obvious, yet commonly overlooked, aspect of shopping online during festive season sales is price comparison. The biggest online marketplaces — like Flipkart and Amazon — tend to match the top deals offered by their competitors. At times these prices are matched almost instantly while sometimes companies take their own sweet time to update prices. Once you’ve settled down on a product of your choice, simply compare the price on the next biggest online marketplace.
2. Navigate like a pro
Most online marketplaces, even the good ones, are quite cluttered. During promotional sales, things get even worse. Navigating the website and finding the right deals and offers among st a large number of banners across the website becomes a tedious task. You may end up wasting a lot of your precious time finding the right deal and by the time you arrive on the right product, the deal may be sold out.
So how do you ensure you don’t get lost in a massive online sale? The easiest thing to do is simply search for the product. You can either use the website’s search feature or use Google. Arriving directly on the product of your choice will enable you to quickly make a decision. Other way is to open up product category pages on the website and use the available filters to sort products based on your needs. This will display the products along with their latest current prices.
