January sales, take advantage of them consciously!


Last Friday the traditional January sales. Sales that everything indicates will improve sales compared to the 2021 sales campaign and to which we are sure many of you will have already succumbed, are we wrong?

Others without having attended the sales properly you will have benefited from discounted during the months of December and January. And is that the decentralization of sales is a trend that has accompanied us in recent years. Both are a great alternative to get those products that we need at a much more affordable price, however, not everything goes!

The stores first take advantage of the demand for Christmas gifts and then resort to the sales that officially start on January 7, after the day of Kings. And although many shops start promoting some discounts a week before, this is still the date on which we can officially talk about sales.


Keys to take advantage of the sales

And what are the keys to take advantage of the sales? The sales come to exceed 50% discount in some shops, so they are very convenient to buy what we really need. However, discounts are nothing but a strategy to encourage us to continue shopping in which it is very easy to fall. Avoid it and really take advantage of the sale with the following tips.

Don't spend more than you can spend.

Sales are a good time to buy without spending more. However, if you buy certain items for the mere fact of being discounted, the savings that the sales could entail will be gone. And how to avoid it?

  1. make a list in advance of what you need.
  2. Considering the previous list, the price you can pay for such products and your financial situation set a budget and respect it.
  3. Prioritize. If the budget does not allow you to buy everything you want, give priority to what is most necessary.

Follow the prices to save

Are you really saving money by buying a certain item on sale? Remember that discounted items must show their original price next to the discount, or clearly indicate the percentage of the discount. Although if you really want to buy something that represents a great investment for you, the ideal is that months before you follow the article and note how its price fluctuates to know if you are really paying less for it.

Check the purchase conditions

In certain establishments purchase conditions may vary in sales period. They may not accept credit card payments, establish new conditions for changes or not accept a refund. They can, but those conditions must be expressly stated. When in doubt, check them out!

What should not change is the after-sales service and warranty application. These, regardless of whether you buy the product during the sales or outside of that period, must be the same. Don't let them fool you!

Keep the ticket

Keep the ticket and claim

Keep the ticket of all the purchases you make in case you need an exchange, a refund or file a claim. And if you want to change or return an item, keep it in its box. Not all establishments have to return your money, but most do offer you the possibility of exchanging it or receiving a stall for its price to spend later in the store itself.

As a consumer during sales you will have the same rights as at any other time of the year. If there is a problem and it is not resolved amicably, you will always have the option to ask for the claim sheet and reflect on it your complaint or your complaints.

Shopping at trusted establishments And by following these tips you will be able to enjoy the January sales in a healthy way, shopping intelligently and without having to regret after spending more.
