We all love ASOS, right? (Let me hear a “hell yeah”!)
But sadly, when you’re dealing with a budget, sometimes you can’t afford exactly everything you’d like to buy on your wishlist. This happens to me, all the time. I used to have 4 items on my wishlist, but it’s now completely saturated by dresses of every sort up to $25 (this is my self-imposed budget for dresses, which I rarely go over).
But what if I told you that you could save money every time you shop at ASOS?? This trick works well when it’s combined with a coupon code too, but it’s still effective otherwise.
Take this dress here: Rare Sequin Cut Out Dress. (Mullet dress. I chose this one because it’s the closest I could find to the AU$100 mark.)
With Australian currency on the website, it’s $101.12. When you change that to British Pounds, it changes to £62. However, when you convert this through the website http://xe.com, you get the price $93.61 back! So there, instant saving of $7.50. It may not seem like much, but it’s a bit, and the savings are even better when you use a coupon over it!
Take this week’s coupon 10SALE for 10% off the price of all sale items.
When combined with the Australian price, it gives you a saving of $10.11. When combined with the GBP price, it gives you a saving of £6.20. So this is £62 – £6.20, which leaves us with £55.80, which then equates back to $84.22. So you’ve practically knocked $17 off the original price and it’s like the site has given you a 15%+ off coupon instead!
I hope the non-mathematical could follow this post logically enough. For those who are as abysmal with mathematics as I am, the low down is that changing the currency to GBP before you buy = savings!
Now what are you waiting for? Go spend some money ;)
