Are Pop-Up Days the Hot New Trend in Online Shopping?
First, Amazon’s Prime Day, and now Wayfair’s Way Day. What day will be next? Gear up for it with these flash sale tips and tricks.
We already love Amazon Prime Day, when everything under the sun goes on sale for a glorious day of deals. (Time to stock up on toilet paper and Christmas presents, amirite?) Now, Wayfair announces today’s Way Day, a 24-hour bargain blitz of the home and garden variety. Frankly, we love this new trend of daylong deals and steals, but it’s important to take a measured approach.
Here are our 5 tips for getting the most bang for your bargain buck:
1. Choose Brands You Already Know and Love
This is not the time to go rogue. Instead, look for brands you already love and trust, and get deals on those. For instance, this Rachel Ray cookware set, available in 5 trendy colors, might actually be the encouragement I need to finally learn how to cook.
2. Buy That Long-Wanted Item on Your Wish List
It’s time to focus. You know you want a new rug; you’ve been browsing them for weeks. Don’t get waylaid by a shelving unit now. Personally, I’ve been on the hunt for a new rug for my guest room for quite a while and think I've found it with this subtly distressed beauty that gives traditional style a comtemporary twist.
3. Stock Up on Basics
Flash sales are the perfect time to score a deal on items you use every day — and items you only pull out when entertaining guests. Whether enjoying a nice glass of vino is a daily occurence (no judgment here!) or a treat you save for special occasions, this red and white wine glass set is a total bargain.
4. Try Out a Trend
Nothing freshens up a room's look like on-trend accessories. This geometric pillow is a great choice for popping in a bit of pattern that can easily be swapped out for another option later on.
5. Treat Yourself to a Little Luxury
And, what could be more luxurious than a spotless floor that you didn't have to clean yourself?! This bObsweep robotic vacuum and mop does the cleaning for you and, available in a racy red color, it looks sporty doing it. Vroom! Vroom!
