Hot Deal

Negative sides of shopping sales

  1. Game of Cards, Cards n Cards. If you've got the card then you got the bird (deal). If you have the card n you decide not to buy anything then you might be approached by your friends. If you refuse to share your card then you will become a bad friend. Promotion to becoming a fiend from being a friend won't take more than 10 seconds. 🐒🐒🐒  
  2. Unexpected risks. So, you have the card n you decide to buy the bird (deal). Then you need to fulfill the min shopping quota to be able to avail yourself a deal. Some sales need you to purchase for min 5k/3k etc. Say you've bought stuff worth the threshold amount, say 5k. Say, you need to replace one item and you get the option to take the refund after returning the same then you will lose all the discounts. If you could not make your shopping cart reach the threshold amount and then you might need to ask your friends to buy something from your account. And if then change their minds then not only you lose your deal but also that friendship. 
  3. Inflated Price. It's exactly like a problem from the RS Aggarwal ji's quantitative aptitude book's profit n loss section. Sellers would raise the markup price by 30% and give a discount of 10% and still manage to get some profit. Making profit is the part of business, but making unfair hikes in MRP n giving some discounts to sell the product is kinda immoral.  
  4. Unnecessary Purchases and further risks. This is a continuum of point 2. Some of us take a note of stuffs we need through out the year n pile em up in a wishlist. And if during sales a good deal is seen then we buy em. It is just we pile up things just because we deem them to be super useful. Maybe we ll hardly use them in a year. Example a precision screwdriver set. And since we delay the purchases inorder to fulfill that min purchase quota we end up neglecting to buy things those we need the most. Example: Say, I am a student n I need a laptop for my classes. I will postpone my purchases for sales day fun and in the mean time my classes will be giving me migraine. 
  5. Late Delivery and product mishaps. Delivery will be done in ad hoc basis, just like in war like situation. And in the hurry some mishaps might happen. My Poco handset has some ghost touch issue. The return personnel gave it a green pass just like that. They become overburdened and they make mistakes. And returning makes us lose the benefits. Sad life.
  6. Mental stress and anger issues. This point hardly needs any explanation. If you have given card details to a friend for making a high value purchase and you don't receive the money right away then you might relate to this.

Solution

  • Take it easy.
  • It is not the end of the world.
  • Good deals are available through out the year and desidime will help yaa.
  • Draw a boundary. If you don't want to share the card details then don't ask for em. It is that simple. 
  • Respect people's consent and privacy.
  • Say you are a student and in case you are in need of an expensive thing. Say, the thing you are able to purchase now is the most your money can buy and you might get it at a lower price after 6 months. It's okay to buy that urgent item right now. Fancy can wait. Once you start earning you can buy them. Remember Nokia 6600? It was a premium phone once but where is it now?

Perfect Post. These sales force us to buy unnecessary things. But thank god, i don't have the required credit cards for sale discounts. 3 Saal se TV nahin khareed pa raha hoon. Har sale mein purchase karne ka mann karta hai, phir offers dekh kar hi time pass kar leta hoon. Paise bhi bachte hain aur knowledge bhi improve hoti hai. blush joy plus1 pray

not sure , but shopper's age also matters a lot. i believe %age of people above the age of 40 are less prone to negative effects of such shopping sales. people below it are anyways impulsive about anything , these shopping sites and internet are just another medium for them to showcase their impulsiveness.

Totally agree, if one has cards, then discount lures into additional purchase

Recently I bought skechers shoe on myntra due to Onecard offer. It was not required as such. Since then
I have made a habit to buy stuff when required, not because of deal

and if any deal comes along for GV, will buy only if its getting used in grocery purchase

Otherwise, we end up buying unnecessary stuff with GV. Even amazon GV

Another aspect I noticed that if you are busy in work and other responsibilties Deal hunting ka time nahi milega utna. Lot of my friends are like this.

Everything true for me bhaisaab, except becoming a bad friend, i don't differentiate between them so they don't mind, blanket ban on giving my cards for others' payment, i don't like purchases that are not mine showing up in my accounts. Since i don't give cards, no chance of the 6th point either smile

    2] aisa jyada kuch hota nahi. Kyunki bas IRCTC par hee 4000 rupiye se jyada ki kharidi kari hai.

    That too under compulsion as at times, cannot got to ticlet window.

    .

    So no chik chik of buying anything of over 2500-3000 also.. on ecommerce sites.

    .

    Nevet bought anythimg extraordinary in sales ever.

    .

    Jo inflated price per cheeze (fake discounts dekh kar) le: woh pagley.

    .

    Jo Unnecessary Purchases le: woh super pagley! (Hum bhi hein... but only for clothes or books. Nothing to do with sales per se).

    .

    • Respect people's consent and privacy.

      Point (ka reference) nahi samjha

      I don't even call it sales when discounts are applicable on credit cards only & minimum buying terms. It is just unnecessary hype sales sales when in real it is not. I ordered a cordless drill machine today for 6100rs. I had waited for it just for card 10% discounts. The price of the product remained the same even in sale so what's the point of sale. Just only a certain ppl who has credit cards only get discounts but what about others. Not every ppl has credit cards

      Sales haven't started yet bhai. 

      For me, only actual sales are the near Diwali ones. 

      Prime day used to be good in a distant memory. 

      Card discounts shall essentially only be an add-on and not the actual deal themselves. 

      I am missing real sales actually, we are in a complete drought.

      Well, there's no limits to such thinking... Some people don't even have wallet yet carry money. Clubs etc have membership cards etc. Think it that way... Targeted or segmented marketing and sales is not a crime. Nor can we gift or persuade one to carry wallet if he doesn't like or cannot afford one. Anyways... I got your point but that's not a crime in any way.

      Good for you, less chance of loss due to pickpocketing. They can't digest plastic choco bars I guess... Par gaali 100kilo milega.
