How to Get the Most Out of Doorbuster Deals on Clothing

Monday, January 12, 2015

During the holidays, you’re going to see a lot of doorbuster deals advertised at your local stores. But are these really the best prices you can find, and how can you make the most of these short lived sales? Here are three tips to get the most out of doorbusters and stock up your closet:

1  Plan ahead.
    Pretty much every fashion outlet, online and off, is going to have special doorbuster deals at major shopping times like the holiday season. But you don’t have time to hit every possible store or check out every deal. That means it’s best to plan ahead, at least a little; sort through those holiday ads ahead of time and choose certain stores you want to be absolutely sure to hit. That doesn't mean your entire shopping spree has to follow a careful itinerary… just ensure you don’t miss out on the deals that interest you the most. It’s easy for an entire Sunday to slip by before you even have a chance to go to half the stores on your list.

2  Don’t get carried away.
    Remember, doorbuster deals are just that: specials to get you in the door. The fact that a boutique advertises doorbuster deals is no guarantee that other items in the store, including the ones you want to purchase, will also be discounted. This is especially true of vague doorbusters like “Over half our inventory is on sale!” Invariably, the half that isn’t on sale will include the most popular or in-demand items. If a specific dress or brand that you want is mentioned in a doorbuster, then snap it up; if it isn’t, then prepare yourself to see it tagged at full price. By reminding yourself of this ahead of time, you can reduce the chances of making a bunch of full-price impulse purchases after coming into a store just for the doorbuster.

3  Remember the Internet.
Doorbuster deals are usually designed to get you into a physical store, but remember that online shopping often features everyday prices as low as a storefront’s doorbusters, and that online stores will offer even deeper discounts at key times like the end of a season or the holidays. Often, the way to get the best deals is not to bust down doors at all, but to bust open your laptop and look online. At worst, you can confirm whether the doorbuster deals at your local shopping mall are really the best price available.
