How to find a great bargain at end of financial year sales

Everyone wants to bag a bargain and these days you can grab a bargain all year round but June is the last opportunity for retailers to meet their financial targets and entice customers to spend big so it’s good to keep a few things in mind.

Here are some of my tips for bagging that end of financial year bargain…

Plan

Make a list of all the things you need or people you want to buy for. End of Financial Year is a great time to buy gifts for Christmas presents or upcoming birthday or celebratory events.

Research

Do a bit of research before you leave the house that way you will avoid the impulse purchases. Jump online and compare prices. End of Financial year is a great time for the big ticket items that you’ve been putting off so now is the time to buy the TV, the mattress, Outdoor BBQ, Fridge. A tip for big ticket items is to see how other people have rated it before you buy.

Keep it classic

When it comes to fashion, Alicia recommends to look out for jackets and knitwear, which tend not to date from one year to the next. 

Budget

Everyone has a budget – determine what yours is and stick to it.  

It comes down to the “Want versus Need” rule – buy everything you need first and then whatever is left you all the other items.  For the big yearly sales, I recommend putting aside a small amount of money each week in the lead-up – that way you are paying more with cash than credit.
