There are distinct advantages to shopping online. Long gone are the days where you have to shlep to a store possibly miles away just to buy what you need. It can be a real hassle. With online shopping, you can buy what you need, when you need it from the comfort of your own home.
Like our online boutique, styliaque.com, online shopping makes it far easier for shoppers who traditionally had to visit brick and mortar stores.
Here are some obvious and not so obvious reasons to shop online vs in traditional stores:
1) You can shop from the comfort of your home
Crummy weather, rain, snow, freezing cold, brutally hot temps does not interfere with shopping online. If you’re lazy and don’t feel like leaving your comfy couch, you can stay right where you are and shop till you drop! You can wear what you want, look how you want to look and not worry about who you might run into at the store. Stay home and stay comfortable!
2) You can shop multiple stores at once
Of course, we’re partial to styliaque.com, but the great thing about online shopping is that it allows you to view multiple stores and items at the same time. You can compare prices, styles, shipping information, all at your fingertips without having to run to separate stores for everything you want.
3) Coupon codes online are more popular than traditional coupons
This idea is becoming public knowledge more and more, but a lot of people still don’t realize that stores and companies give more discounts to shop online than to shop in their stores. A great emerging site called RetailMeNot.com is the go-to website for coupon codes for your favorite online retailers. We at Styliaque have many coupon codes on there that allow you to keep more of your money in your pockets. Other chains like CVS or Bed Bath and Beyond will email customers more savings coupons to use online than for their brick and mortars. It’s a win win for everyone.
4) You can show your purchase to family and friends before actually purchasing
This is one of the not so obvious advantages to shopping online. Let’s say you really like one of Styliaque’s blazers, blouses or Styliaque by Orli handbags and you want to know what your friends or family think before you purchase it. With an online store like styliaque.com, it doesn’t matter where in the world your mother, sister or friends is – you can email them the product link and get their opinion in seconds! They can see all the product information as well as the pictures of the gorgeous merchandise. This is especially helpful if you’re buying a gift for someone and you want to know that they’ll like it or that it’s their taste. Email them over the product’s URL and share instantly.
5) Lots of online retailers offer free shipping
Going traditional shopping means driving which means spending more money on gas and time and sitting in traffic and losing your patience and well…you get the idea. Many online stores will offer free shipping with a minimum purchase amount. Styliaque.com offers free standard shipping on $200 orders and over. The amount of gas money you’ll save doing online shopping and the time you won’t waste sitting in congested traffic will far outweigh the amount you spend for free shipping. And anyway, who doesn’t like getting things in the mail? It’s much more exciting to open a box dropped off by the postal service than to just pick it up yourself. It’s like a surprise every time!
