Low Price Watches: Keeping Time Whilst Keeping A Budget

We all need to know the time; it goes without saying. Despite technology’s best efforts to make redundant the humble timepiece, watches are as fashionable and trendy as ever. It can be a minefield online when looking for low price watches; knowing where to find the best discount products whilst retaining quality is one of the biggest challenges that the savvy shopper faces. Fortunately, there are means and ways of getting a top-quality watch for a price that you wouldn’t believe, if only you go about it the right way.

Consider A Digital Watch For Better Electronic Deals

The analogue watch has punched well above its weight over the past few decades, especially given the technological onslaught it has faced, and manages to remain remarkably popular, even today. However, the computing power that can now be implemented into digital and smart watches is truly staggering. As a result, these electronic watches may be the option to opt for.

Electronic products tend to face steeper discounts than traditional analogue products, purely due to the nature in which anything digital becomes outdated quicker. But that is no reason not to go for them as they’re outdated only to those who work in the industry whose job it is to constantly upgrade, even if those upgrades are relatively minute.

Black Friday is now very much upon us, and whilst the savage nature it seems to bring out in some shoppers leaves a lot to be desired, the deals you can get, particularly electronic deals, are incredibly appealing. Budgeting by when the biggest sales are likely to occur is a good way of making sure you get the watch you want.

Use A Price Drop Alert Tool

If there’s a certain watch that you love the look of, but that’s tantalisingly beyond your budget, then fear not. Using a price alert service such as PIWoP (price I want to pay) is a simple and effective way of passively monitoring a product you like the look of but that might currently be out of your price range. You’ll get alerted if (and usually when) it drops to within your budget and that’s that!

With a new decade approaching and our lives busier than ever, keeping track of time has never been as important; getting the right watch for you doesn’t have to be a fantasy nor a chore thanks to PIWoP.

How to Save Your Money: Getting Designer Clothes for Less

For fashion-focused individuals, there is nothing worse than having Prada tastes on a Primark budget. In fact, it can often leave you flipping through the pages of Vogue feeling green with envy. However, while designer fashion isn’t cheap, there are ways you can get designer brands into your closet - without breaking the bank!

 

The team at PIWoP - a unique price tracker app, have provided three money-saving tips when shopping for designer clothing:

 

1. Buy unworn, second-hand clothing.

It’s possible to find designer clothing for less than half of their original price when you shop second-hand. Rather than hitting up your local charity shop, try shopping sites such as Depop and eBay to find unworn designer clothing for cheap prices.

If you’re looking for some antique pieces, try browsing vintage fairs and antique shops to find designer clothing from every era.

 

2. Shop for off-season pieces.

When you shop with your favourite designer in the off-season, you can often score major discounts on clothing. For example, retailers will clear out their stock from summer in September to make space for any new merchandise. Keep an eye on all your favourite pieces throughout the year and then make your way to the sales at the end of the season to purchase them at a fraction of the price.

 

3. Wait for the sales.

Say you have your eye on a certain handbag, or pair of designer shoes, but you don’t have £300 to drop on clothing right away; we recommend using a price drop alert service like PIWoP. When you spot something you’re looking to purchase, but it’s a little outside of your price range, all you have to do is add it to your PIWoP list. We ask you exactly how much you want to pay for the item and then, our tool will alert you when it hits that price in the sales – easy!
