It’s the end of the financial year and for most that means tax time, quarterly reviews and vacations. But if none of the above apply to you then why not go shopping!?
The end of the financial year is a great time to grab a bargain, why? Because most retailers and businesses are holding stocktakes and clearing old season stock in a bid to free up space for the next financial year, so this is your chance to shop the sales at heavily reduced prices.
Here are my top picks for the EOFY and where to grab a bargain!
GP are offering further 25% of their already discounted sale items both online and in-store so there’s no time like the present to stock up on Summer dresses or your favourite denim.
The Iconic are offering 25% off all winter items with the code WINTER25 which can be added to your basket at checkout. They also have same day delivery if you are in a rush to get your winter weight before you head off on this year’s ski trip.
Zara is also on sale both in-store and online and with their new online platform just launching it’s the perfect time to shop online from the comfort of your own home and stock up on interview outfits or work attire, or even presents for your friends for Christmas.
Though most of the car brands say their EOFY sales finish June 30 you will still be able to purchase a car at a heavily discounted rate for the next few weeks as EOFY can make a massive difference to the success or failure of a car dealership’s overall sale targets, hence why they cut prices and advertise heavily. This is great for the customer as prices are reduced and the market becomes much more competitive.
So keep your wits about you when looking and let them know you are educated on what the EOFY means and they need your sale to make their budgets and get their bonuses, if you love a haggle, this is the perfect time for you to do so and save thousands in the process.
If you are looking for a new laptop, camera or any electricals for the home then the EOFY is the perfect time to purchase. Again, the electrical companies would have older makes and models or too much stock of an item so they will heavily reduce the price and throw in some extras to get the sale.
Pretty much everything is on sale here at the moment, they are offering bargain buys on TVs, laptops, portable speakers, printers, kettles, vacuums, and cameras. My advice is to head into store to negotiate on these bigger ticket items and also see if you can get free delivery!
The Good Guys
Their “Stocktake Fever’ sale says that $50m of stock must be cleared. They’re offering 20% off washing machines and TVs plus 15% of all computers and accessories.
Bing Lee is another great retailer to buy from, they offer 2 hrs click and collect and they also price match. They are offering bonuses with buys, e.g. buy a computer and get a free printer as well as huge savings on fridges, washing machines, kitchen appliances and washer/dryers.
Get out this weekend and make a day of shopping the sales, if you have been putting off buying any of the above items then the EOFY is the perfect time to make the lap and purchase them while saving as much cash money as you can in the process.
Some sales are better than others so make sure you compare prices and brands and make the most of this year’s EOFY sales.
