People do purchase more at Diwali – malls – shops and online stores have geared themselves with offers and discounts. These look very attractive with large banners and discount slogans.
But there is something more behind all this – there is some catch, which I found out when browsing some of the online shopping websites. Though these websites claim to give discount coupons and gifts on every purchase – which makes them very attractive buy option.
Reality of Offers
I was browsing some online sites to buy a new mobile handset – I kept this buy for Diwali – because I was hoping to get some extra discount and of course some freebies with my purchase.
But when I decided to purchase I browsed few websites – will obviously not name them as it may directly damage their business. I saw exciting discount banners with every purchase and gifts with purchase – I ignored the price and didn’t saw it and immediately added the product and applied the coupon – I stopped at checkout to recall the price – that I saw before Diwali.
I was shocked it was actually the same and in some case it was 2-5% more.
Moral of the Story
If you are thinking of purchasing this Diwali and expecting some discount – then do check the prices whether you are purchasing it online or at any local mall. This is also true that discounts are always not on your side.
