Vogue Online Shopping Night (#VOSN) is kicking off tomorrow, Wednesday 24th of May at midday and generally comes around twice a year. It’s a 12 hour shopping event which sees Australia’s most loved brands and high-end retailers come together to offer discounts and deals online – for all fashion forward gals, it’s like Christmas come early. If you want to make the most of all deals s available it’s important to think strategically, and keep your eye on the prize.
Here are our top tips to make sure you nail Vogue Online Shopping Night Out!
#1 – Try before you buy
Visit the store and figure out your size and the items you like before the sale starts. It’s easy to get swept up in the craziness of the sale and buy up, but you don’t want to impulse purchase a new dress to find out it’s not the right fit. It’s easier to double check whether you like it beforehand than to mess around with returns and refunds later.
#2 – Plan ahead and keep your eye out for other flash sales
The list of brands and online retailers participating in both GQ and Vogue Online Shopping Night are already up online. But bear in mind that some brands aren’t officially involved in the sale, but still offer deals during the same time. Finder.com.au has a full roundup of deals, including the ones not officially part of Vogue. Check it out and pre-plan your purchases so you can jump online as soon as the sale starts and avoid any potential site crashes.
#3 – Compare deals
Many smaller brands are stocked by bigger retailers, like David Jones for example. These stores could end up giving better deals and discounts, so before you buy make sure your item isn’t stocked by another retailer with a higher discount.
#4 – If you like it, put it in your basket
If you really want to make the most of sale start browsing and adding items to your basket just before the sale starts. Sale events like this always attracts a high volume of shoppers making the websites slow and sometimes difficult to navigate. If you don’t want to miss out have your cart ready to go so all you need to do is give it a once over and purchase what you’re happy to splurge on.
