How to conquer mass consumerism by getting the most for the absolute least
Words: Annette Minnaar
The BIG Sale is finally here and it’s huge. It’s bigger than saying LOL instead of actually laughing, bigger than your coffee snobbery, bigger than wearing non-prescription glasses in 2017, even bigger than a gym selfie — it’s that big.
This year, we are going all out with over 7000+ Sale items and meeting all of your style needs come winter, summer, weekend getaways, work, weddings and midnight snack dashes, too. With so much variety and quality from which to choose, you’ll need a bit of strategy to get the goods before everyone else does. Here’s a breakdown of how to sift through everything and conquer the BIG Sale.
1. Make your wishlist your best friend
While believing in the idea that a wish won’t get you very far in life, believing in the power of your Superbalist Wishlist most certainly will.
Start the BIG Sale race by tapping the “ADD TO WISHLIST” button on all of your favourite items. This way, you can create a Sale mood board to compare items and easily review what you do or don’t want.
2. Give Click + Collect a go
Our latest delivery method is all about convenience. Whether you shop our Sale once or several times, receiving your parcel(s) doesn’t have to include you waiting on our delivery team.
Use Click + Collect to avoid the stress of when and where to meet up with the delivery guy and collect your parcel at a time most convenient to you.
3. Check your emails often
Who doesn’t love a good bargain? Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list here, so that you receive extra discount and bundle deals. Checking emails gets tiresome, we know, but some of our biggest discounts are waiting right there.
Start off your morning by scanning your emails for Superbalist deals. Sale hack: we send them around 8am, then again at lunchtime and after 5pm.
4. Stock up on essentials
There is nothing basic about basics and “the more, the merrier” applies to them too. Wardrobe basics are referred to as essentials for good reason. Sales are the perfect time to stock up on the fundamental pieces that help build your day-to-day look.
Try to shop our Sale with a 3:1 ratio of basics and investment pieces. Keep your eyes peeled on our women’s, men’s and kids’ department pages to see when our basics collection is available for less.
5. Get all of your gifts sorted
Shopping for gifts tends to be a last minute, panic-stricken situation. Sale is prime time to purchase all of your presents for the entire year — birthdays, religious holidays, special occasions, you name it.
Avoid making a trip to the mall in sheer panic. Simply compile a list of all the gifts you need for the year and buy them at the lowest price.
