In this current age of modern technology buying pretty much anything online has never been so accessible. Sadly, this accessibility also brings with it confusion and misdirection.
Unfortunately, for the discerning luxury brand shopper it can be a minefield when looking to find the exclusive products that suit your individuality and desire for quality. Luckily, we are here to help. Here are our top 5 tips and hacks to help you get the best from shopping for luxury brands online.
1) Seek Out Unique ‘One of A Kind’ Items
The key to luxury online shopping is to seek out brands that offer high quality, and unique pieces. Buying from this type of brand gives you the peace of mind that no-one else will have the same product and give you an inner sense of individuality, as if the piece was designed and made exclusively for you. A fantastic example of luxury, exquisite one of a kind jewelry can be found here with an exclusive selection of top named designers such as Dana Rebecca designs. Dana’s products ooze luxury and uniqueness.
2) Free Up Your Inbox
When you are lucky enough to find a luxury brand that resonates with your personal style you should register for their updates. By using Unroll you can clear your inbox to ensure you get updated information and offers ONLY from the sites or brands you prefer. This allows you to unsubscribe from brands you are no longer interested in. This handy little tool also updates you on a monthly basis to let you know if your email has been added to other email shopping lists. Armed with this information you can easily unsubscribe leaving your inbox free from unwanted brands or websites and glowing only with updates from the sites or brands you really care about.
3) Follow Your Favourite Brands on Social Media
Often your favourite luxury brand will announce new products, ranges or discounts on social media first, sometimes even exclusively to just Facebook and Twitter followers for example. Make sure you follow your favourite brands and wherever possible choose to ‘see first’ so you never miss their latest posts.
4) Check Out Popular Informational Sites
Instead of spending hour trawling through various shopping sites to find a brand that resonates with you, read blogs, online books and information which do all the hard work for you and can help you identify specific brands, products and designers that are trending or are renowned for high quality and luxury. These types of sites provide reliable information from the personal experience of bloggers who can give an unbiased view as to the pros and cons of any product or service.
5) Shop with Your Credit Card
There are many advantages to shopping with your credit card as opposed to your debit card, especially if you are the type of person who clears your balance regularly. Shopping with a credit card can offer a variety of rewards and cash back bonuses but most importantly offers you protection on your purchases which is especially important when buying luxury branded items online. Credit cards are governed by the Consumer Credit Directive which means the company that provide your credit card are jointly liable with product suppliers for any purchase you make.
To be covered by your credit card your purchase must be between £100 and £60,260 in value.
