4 TIPS ON HOW TO FIND THE BEST CATALOGUES ONLINE7/20/2016
From Simply Be to the Brilliant Gift Shop, Argos to Next, there's a whole heap of catalogues out there vying for your attention. You'll want to find a catalogue that provides you with low-interest rates, a wide range of products and excellent customer service. Here's how to find the best catalogues online.
1. Check out customer service
Customer service is something you should check out before you open a new credit account with a catalogue brand. Head over to third-party review websites where you can find reviews left by customers who have used a particular retailer in the past. This will provide you with all the information you need about which catalogues provide you with not only value for money but an excellent standard of customer service, too. Look out for catalogue brands that let you pay for your order using a number of different methods, flexible delivery options and the opportunity to contact a customer service rep by phone or email.
2. Shop for the best interest
Interest rates vary depending on the catalogue you choose and when you make repayments. Catalogues like Very, for example, let you pay for your order over three months without charging you any interest at all. Other catalogues will charge you a lower rate of interest if you pay for you order within a particular time. Check out price comparison websites, where you can compare and contrast different rates of interest from the UK's biggest catalogues, providing you with lots of information on which catalogues are going to work out cheapest in your circumstances. If you can't find the company's latest rates, contact them directly to find out about interest before you make your application. If you are interested in viewing a selection of catalogues then take a look at coolcatalogues.co.uk.
3. Look out for promotions
Many catalogue companies offer promotions, which could save you money in the long run. These can include money-off discount codes or promotions that give you free or reduced-price delivery. You'll be able to find discount codes if you sign up to a catalogue's mailing list. You'll receive news and discounts direct to your inbox, and you can unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time. Alternatively, follow your favourite brands on social media, where you could be the first to hear about the latest promotional vouchers.
4. Choose a catalogue that offers choice
You'll want to choose a catalogue that provides you with a range of products. Argos, for example, has thousands of items available, including toys, games, homeware and electronics. Sites like Simply Be specialise in plus-size clothing that you won't always find in your nearest shopping centre or high street.
