There is no doubt that as our courier services become better and more efficient, online shopping becomes a more and more attractive option for grabbing those things that you want – without the hassle of actually going to a crowded mall on a Saturday morning, where no doubt you will be assaulted by dozens of sugar-hyped kids tearing about.
In general, items bought online are cheaper than the equivalent in a traditional brick and mortar store simply because of the reduced overhead costs. Of course, this money saving tip makes us smile to no end, but what REALLY makes us smile is when we manage to get those cheaper items for even cheaper still – enter the world of coupons, vouchers and promotions then.
As a kid I remember those big coupon sheets that the grocery stores used to print out in the newspapers, which were then dutifully snipped out and stored by mom, only to be triumphantly brandished as we hit the till on our next big monthly shop.
Those days have to a large part ended, the printed coupons that is, but you’ll be surprised to know that the concept of vouchers and coupons live on in today’s digital world – all designed to drive more sales of course!
(Come on, we know that the shops aren’t really interested in saving us money – they want more sales and we want cheap deals. Seems like a mutually satisfying arrangement to me.)
Anyway, newcomer to the digital realm of coupons, vouchers and promotions is IntheCity, billed as your best local online shopping mall. Essentially they aggregate a large number of coupons, vouchers and deals for a variety of South African online retailers, all cleverly and presented in one good looking web location.
Their portfolio covers a large range of retail, sports, electronic, fashion, gifts, books and clothing offers and deals, and with a popular daily newsletter bringing all of the latest savings directly to your inbox, IntheCity certainly looks to be a great way to save those few extra Rands!
