Can you feel it? There’s a slight chill in the air (for most of the country anyway—enjoy it while you can, Toronto and Montreal). For the rest of us, that means leaves changing colours, Halloween, and of course, a new fall wardrobe. And what goes better with online shopping than a pumpkin-spice-anything? So while you’re sipping away, here are our top 5 fall shopping tips!
Make a list. Check it twice.
With the fall season comes the countdown to the holidays. As Halloween quickly comes and goes, Black Friday and Cyber Monday approach, and of course the end of the year festivities are so close you can touch them. With all that, it’s never too early to create a shopping list. Visit your go-to online stores and create a favourites list or wishlist so you’re ready when the sales start rolling in. The fall is when stores have crazy sales in preparation for Black Friday and other major clearouts. Having your list ready to go so all you have to do is add promo codes, will help save you time, and of course, cash money.
Check Rakuten.ca of course.
Maybe I’m biased, but I always love to check Rakuten.ca for the latest and greatest offers. Promo codes, free shipping, bonus Cash Back, that sort of thing. Here at Rakuten, the team works around the clock to ensure you’ll always get the best deals around. Check out our 2X Cash Back or the Coupons section for top deals. Don’t forget to check out the latest luxury trends too – with Rakuten, there’s always a deal to be had (like that Gucci bag I’ve had my eye on).
If you’re like me, you love some of the trends to come out each season, but who can afford to shop with the big names all the time? I like to mix-and-match my pieces—this means my wardrobe looks like it’s on point, while leaving my wallet a little happier. Stores like GAP, Old Navy and Joe Fresh always have the latest style trends at significantly lower prices, that way when I see a piece I just can’t live without from Ted Baker, DKNY, Saks Fifth Avenue, I don’t feel so bad (plus I get cash back). So go on, get those thigh-high boots, that snazzy leather bomber jacket or even that blanket scarf.
‘Tis the season.
Fall is also a great time to shop for those everyday housewares you’ve been neglecting to get. Think: furniture, appliances, home décor, even new gadgets – it’s not just about the fashion (even though this is a great time to scoop up sweet savings with mid-season sales and great prices on everything from men’s shoes to denim!). With stores like Bed Bath and Beyond, Dyson, Best Buy, Home Depot, and much more, it’s a great time to stock up on everything for your home (and beyond).
Where do I go when I have lots of presents to buy, and want to be as efficient as possible? I click to Amazon.ca, eBay.ca, Etsy, Sephora and even Hudson’s Bay so I can do all my shopping in one place and maximize my Cash Back. And what do you get the person who has everything? How about a Groupon of sorts, or even one of the 70 gift cards you can get Cash Back on?
This is truly the most wonderful time of the year, because—SALES! To all the shoppers across the land, I encourage you to finish your drink and get ready to shop. So go out there and make me proud. Leave your best fall shopping tips in the comments below!
