Bargain Buys

Leave a comment

Following on from my post on Saturday, I have bought this bag.

2015-03-21 03When I went to buy it, the sales assistant pointed out that if I bought 2 items they would both be 25% off.  I did not need another bag but then she added that it included any merchandise including wallets, hats and scarves.  I was not necessarily looking for anything else but I decided to take a look.  I found this gorgeous red scarf for $20 so added that to my purchases.  I can’t wait for some cooler weather.

2015-03-23 02Thanks to discounts and a $50 gift card I ended up getting the bag and scarf for $114.

I also ordered this dress from Rivette & Blair in Melbourne.

2015-03-21 02Instead of ordering online which is a relatively new innovation for this brand, I rang the store to check that the dress was an identical style to the 2 I already have.  I placed my order over the phone and was advised that there was 20% off the price and I also ended up ordering another in the same style which was on special for $59 which is less than half price.  The description is red and blue floral  so it will be a bit of a surprise packet!

That is certainly enough buying for me at the moment.

What about you?  Have you bought anything lately or scored a bargain?

It is not a new line but I have been appalled to hear this numerous times on the radio over the past few days.  It is the latest advertising campaign for Harvey Norman.  I cannot remember the exact details but is based on the premise that you get a larger discount if you spend more money.  The examples in the advertisement are over $1000, over $2000 or over $3000 so we are not talking small amounts here.

I find this type of advertising unethical and just downright wrong.  How many people will get sucked in?
