I love shopping online.
Partly because I’m old enough to remember when it didn't exist and you had to go to a shopping centre IRL to get what you needed.
And partly because I’m a busy working mum who almost never gets time to go to the shops without my four year old, which is about as fun and fruitful as you might imagine.
While I love to browse and buy on my phone or laptop, I don't ever go crazy.
I dont have credit cards and don't use any "buy now, pay later" services. I like to think I’m just really good at sorting through the clutter and finding the best bargains.
And because sharing is caring, I’m going to share my best online shopping tips with you.
Don't pay for postage.
We all know the nifty marketing trick websites use to get you to spend more. You’ll add something to your cart, then get a notification that tells you: you just need to spend a bit more to get free shipping.
Another $45 to save $9? Sure! there’s always "girl math" to justify it.
But you know what’s better? Free shipping on any amount. So let me introduce you to OnePass. I signed up about six months ago and it’s a game-changer.
It’s a membership that gives you more value from your favourite brands like Kmart, Target, Catch.com.au, Bunnings Warehouse, and Officeworks. There’s so many benefits, including free delivery (!!!!), as well as 5x Flybuys points per dollar spent in-store at Kmart, Target, Bunnings Warehouse and Officeworks.
You also get other incredible benefits like express Click & Collect as well as 365-day change of mind returns AND early access to Black Friday offers.
