Using Price Tracking Tools On Fashion Items

It’s human nature to want to feel confident and look good to others, and with designer brands as we know them today dating back to the early 19th century, we’ve had that desire for 'design' for a long time. The problem with designer wear, however, is that it’s usually incredibly expensive. Even once the item of clothing is ‘out of season’ it will still most likely be beyond the realms of the layperson’s budget. Fortunately, with the advent of online outlet stores, heavy discounts are now available on various big brands of designer clothing. Using price tracking tools like PIWoP to find yourself the best discounts on designer clothing will get you the clothes you want at the cheapest, possible price

Which Clothing Brands Have The Best Resell Value?

There are certainly some pieces of designer clothing that resell at a higher value than others. It is worth using price tracking tools on these brands to find the best possible deal. Then, later on, you can resell it at a higher price knowing that not everyone will be so savvy as to use a price tracking tool! Gucci, Fendi, Nike and Off-White are particularly good investments to make!

The Second-hand Clothing Market Is Bigger Than Ever

There has never been a better time to use price tracking tools when shopping for clothes. In fact, the resale sector has grown 51 times more in value than the new clothing market over the past three years! This trend has primarily been driven by millennials and Gen-Zers looking to access the vintage market. More companies and retailers are realising the opportunities in selling second-hand clothing so discounts are only going to become more frequent as time goes on. It’s for this reason that you should be making the most of price tracking tools such as PIWoP and getting the designer clothes you’ve always wanted!

Sustainability Is Growing In Fashion

There’s a huge shift in consumers wanting to see more sustainably sourced clothing. Whether that be more ethically minded retailers or, as is more often the case, buying second-hand clothing and simply giving it a second life. One of the three R’s, after all, is Reuse. This is another reason you should look to shop for second-hand clothes as you can sleep with a cleaner conscience knowing you’re doing your bit against fast fashion. Using price tracking tools means you’ll not only get clothes for cheaper, but with the resale market only going to increase, you can now see it as an investment to sell on in the future! Because it will sell.

PIWoP’s Tips On How To Find The Best Coupons And Deals

Everybody loves a deal, especially the British. Our island nation goes absolutely bonkers for a bargain and some of the best bargains come in the form of coupons and deals. Many people think that coupons and vouchers are old hat; they think that the humble coupon is now obsolete. However, those very coupons can still save you a good deal of money if you know where to find the best ones. With that in mind, the team here at PIWoP put on their money saving hats to come up with a list of tips to find the best coupons and deals around.

Don’t Forget To Check The Packaging!

We’re all guilty of it, binning the packet once we’re done with it before realising there may have been vouchers, coupons and deals on the inside of the label. Lots of soft drink companies do it, as do cereals and many foods for children. They may not offer the largest of savings, but they make up for that through their regular release. To make the most of these product promotions, simply cut out the piece of packaging and enter the accompanying online code! It’s as simple as that!

Make The Most Of Magazines

Coupons and deals have long been a staple of the print magazine. Whilst the print press has seen a decline in recent years, there are still some great money-saving deals to be found amidst the pages of magazines. The magazines that many supermarkets offer usually contain lots of great offers for their own products. Having mentioned supermarkets, it’s also worth noting their loyalty cards are also a great way to earn you money-saving coupons and deals.

Last But Not Least… Online

We couldn’t complete this list without mentioning the online community, of course. In what is now such a digital world, it’s hardly surprising that the best coupons and deals are to be found online. Websites such as Wowcher and Groupon offer great deals on a huge range of items, experiences and services. Ultimately, the best money-saving advice is to use a mixture of all the above as each one offers a very particular style of coupon!

The Importance Of The Price Drop Alert Tool

The previous decade was frenetic, fast-paced and full of bonkers events. The next ten years will invariably provide more of the same; we simply haven’t all got the time anymore to spend hours trawling the internet to find the best shopping deals. That’s why you need to be using a price drop alert tool such as PIWoP.

It’s Time To Save You Some Time

Price drop alert tools save you oodles of time and a fair deal of stress in the process. By using price tracking tools, you can monitor the product you want to buy over time and, as a result, leave it on the back-burner so that you can get on with the more important things in your life. Services such as PIWoP’s offer a win-win situation by saving you both time and money. They do this all without ever forcing you to compromise on the quality of the item you’re purchasing.

Things You Could Do With Your Extra Time

With the average person spending over three hours on their phone daily, any place where you can minimise or streamline your time spent in front of a screen can’t be a bad thing. So, by using our price drop alert service, you can dedicate that free time that you supposedly “never had” to something new, a creative project, perhaps? Maybe you could spend more time outside exercising or meeting up with friends (face-to-face, of course). You could even swap screen-text for lines on a page and pick up a classic novel *cue sharp intakes of breath from millennials, everywhere*.

Whatever you decide to do with it, PIWoP means you’ll waste less time online. We’re looking to waste less as a nation, why not include time within that as well?

They’re Here To Stay

The rise of price drop alert tools has been startling, and their usage shows no signs of slowing down. PIWoP’s services are amongst the best out there when it comes to saving you money on the products you love.

Instances Where A Price Drop Alert Tool Is Vital

There are certain events and occasions which necessitate spending money, there’s no getting around it. But just because you’ve resigned yourself to the fact that your wallet will take a hit, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still be trying to save yourself some money. This is especially true in cases where you’ve got ample time to plan ahead. The team at PIWoP have got together and come up with a list of occasions when using a price drop alert tool can be particularly helpful.

Weddings

Whether you’re the one being wed, or simply going along for the free drinks, weddings are expensive affairs. Clothes and fashion accessories often drop drastically in price throughout the year, especially if they’ve gone out of season. A nice pair of designer cufflinks or an extra special pair of high heels can make your wedding outfit. Annoyingly, these tend to be expensive, but if you plan far enough in advance you’ll almost certainly be able to get them cheaper by using PIWoP to help find the best shopping deals!

Holidays

Thinking of going somewhere hot, sunny and prone to cocktails for your holiday this year? Want to look stylish on the beach but not break the bank in doing so? This is where PIWoP and our price tracking tools can come in handy! Whether it be a pair of sunglasses you’ve had your eyes on for months, an obnoxiously loud Hawaiian shirt or a few litres worth of factor 50 sun cream for your pale, pasty skin, PIWoP can help you find the lowest price out there.

Furnishing A Home

Moving home is widely regarded as being one of the most stressful events you’ll go through in your life. Why pile unnecessary financial stress on top of that, as well?! If you find furniture that you’d like to furnish your home, but that is tantalisingly out of budget, then place a PIWoP on it and just be patient! A well-known sofa brand (naming no names but we think you’ll know who we mean…) seems to perpetually be in a sale! So, you know that more likely than not it will drop to within your budget if you’re just patient and use a price alert service like ours.

Whatever the occasion coming up, you can get all you need for the price you want to pay using PIWoP. If you want to find out more about PIWoP, the price drop alert tool, then visit our website today and click on our ‘How To Use PIWoP’ page!

Price Alert Service: Patience Always Pays Off In The End

It’s something we’ve been taught since we were at school, one of Aesop’s fables, remember? The tortoise and the hare? PIWoP is a price alert service whose effectiveness increases the more patient you are. In short, the longer you wait, the more money you’ll likely save. We’ve had a think in the office, and come up with a few instances, both historically and today, when patience was/is paramount. We think patience is a virtue that you should try and implement when you use our price drop alert tool!

The Second Punic War

Cast your mind back a couple of thousand years to the war between Carthage and Rome (we all know the story, right?..) Having previously suffered large-scale defeats at the hands of the Romans, the Carthaginian general Hannibal decided to sit back and commit to guerrilla-style tactics against the Romans. Attacking little and often, the Carthaginians baited the Romans into launching a large-scale attack in which approximately 70,000 Romans lost their lives. This was one of the worst Roman defeats ever and was mainly down to impatience! Now we’re not advocating warfare, we’re offering money saving advice, but the take-home message is the same, be patient!

Cooking!

Ok, so this one is a little less dramatic perhaps, but still true! Flavour is unlocked with time. Ingredients are going to cook at the rate they cook, whether you like it or not. There’s a whole style of cooking moulded around the conceit of patience, slow cooking. Hours in the slow cooker can elevate a dish from merely ok, to sublime.

Another example of patience in cooking is letting food rest, steak and other meats. Resting your meat allows the juices within to redistribute. This keeps the meat moist and flavourful. Using PIWoP is essentially letting the product rest, letting its value slowly trickle down to the price you want to pay. PIWoP may not be as flavoursome as a medium-rare steak, but it certainly should be considered when thinking of how to save your money!

Don’t Rush The Writing…

Many writers feel the need to rush, and write worse material as a result. They confuse patience and thinking time with being unproductive, when, in reality, many writers’ best ideas come to them when they’re not thinking about writing, whatsoever!

Why not try your hand at some writing yourself?! You’ll probably only be a few pages into your best-selling novel before you get a PIWoP notification telling you your wanted item is now within your budget! Who says we’re not full of creative money saving advice here at PIWoP!

Patience is PIWoP’s virtue, and if you want a tip to top all the other money saving tips, it’s that you should wait that little bit longer than you think. If you want to find out more about PIWoP’s price drop alert service, then visit our website and click on the ‘How To Use PIWoP’ page!

How To Save Your Money In The New Year

The New Year often comes as both a blessing and a curse, financially speaking. On one hand your bank account has usually taken a fairly substantial hit from Christmas. On the other hand, however, some of the year’s best deals often come about in January. Electronic deals are particularly prevalent at this time of year and are worth going in on.

Look For Coupons And Deals Where Possible

January is coupon central; eateries and shops are well-aware of how stretched the budget can be just after Christmas so often they’ll compensate accordingly by offering good deals.
There are plenty of good shopping deal apps where you can find a wide range of vouchers. Groupon and Wowcher are amongst the best, and will have particularly good coupons and deals that month. Most retail outlets will have deals and discounts, when there are so many to keep an eye on, PIWoP can come in very handy. It’s much easier to have specific products that you want in the back of your mind, use PIWoP, and then bank on the fact that, because it’s January the price will almost certainly drop to what you’re able to pay; better that than trying to continually keep an eye on everything, and end up getting nothing at all, as a result.

Electronic Deals Are Everywhere In The New Year

With the speed at which technology updates and evolves, an incredibly powerful computer, can become outdated incredibly quickly. However, this is very useful when it comes to electronic deals in January. You’ll find that even ‘cheap electronics’ are still usually much more powerful and advanced than you could ever really have need for. It’s just that relative to the very latest technology these discount appliances might have a marginally smaller processing power.

Keep An Eye Out For Second-Hand Items

January is also the time that people will flog items they received at Christmas that they don’t particularly like. With a quick crawl of Ebay, Facebook Marketplace, or even Amazon, you can find products that are as good as new for a much cheaper price. These discount products will most likely have been used once, if that. It is often pride that gets in the way of buying second-hand products, but if you’re looking for money saving advice, then it’s the way to go.
