We’re so over the mall.
It’s overcrowded. It’s overpriced. And there may be eight full-size parking lots, but there are zero open parking spaces.
The music is loud and the teenagers are louder. Your culinary options include heat-lamp pizza or lackluster pretzels. The employees are useless… and the checkout lines are agonizingly, hopelessly, ridiculously long.
Why are you putting up with the mall crowd? It’s time to embrace what in-the-know shoppers learned long ago: online shopping is where it’s at.
Don’t believe us? Here’s a look at why online shopping makes mall shopping obsolete.
1. The Sales Are Easier to Find
Looking for a size eight red dress under $70? You’ll have to search through the sales racks like everyone else. Online, bloggers and sales hunters post retailer sales constantly and any item of clothing imaginable is just a web search away.
2. It Saves Gas, Time, and Sanity
You could run around town and burn all the gas in your tank. You could get up early, shower, and leave before breakfast to try and get a good sale… or you could stay in your PJs and shop online. No lines. No parking lots. No crowds. Just you, some coupons, and your computer screen – what could be better?
3. Free Shipping Offers are Plentiful
Free shipping coupons are some of the most popular coupons out there. Even if you do have to pay for shipping, your coupons and sales (plus the convenience of shopping from home) can easily negate the cost.
4. The Deals are the Same on Huge Sales Days
You could get up at the crack of dawn and prepare for battle on a big sale day, or you could just log on to your computer and get the same sale items. Why stand in an hour-long line when you could get the same deals online (without the hassle)?
5. Save on Taxes
For most online merchants, if they are located outside of your state and they don’t have any locations in your state, you won’t have to pay sales tax. So you get double the savings — sale prices plus no taxes!
