Sale ... Price Drop ... 50% off ... these are signs posted to attract hordes of shoppers? Are you one of those lured to go and buy when a sale promo is offered?

Oh Yeah, I try my best to be a sale shopper. I tell myself it's silly to pay full price for anthing because most likely the prices are so inflated in the first place. I have no troubles wearing last season's styles in clothes or shoes, so I've been able to get some really great deals. i always check out the clearance racks first when I hit a store. I especially love it when people compliment me on something I got on super sale. One of my favorites is a jacket I got at Old Navy for $5. I always get complimented on it ;-)

That's nice to hear twilight. Actually, fashion lies on the bearer more than the item itself. So, the idea of getting it on sale is very solid.

I don't actually seek out sales but I'm ecstatic if I'm shopping and happen to run into one. I spent 4 years in Japan and became used to shopping online. I would always hunt down online coupon codes and would sometimes save an extra 15% or so on my purchases. I do take advantage of the Victoria's Secret bi-annual sales because they are so expensive during the rest of the year.

I LOVE a good sale. I am always on the look out a a bargain. I am on a tight budget, so I am always planning ahead for gifts and such. When I see something on sale I grab it. I have several boxes that I keep that are for gifts.

I don't get lured. I used to work in retail and you can't lure me. I won't buy something just because it's on sale and you think you are getting a bargain. To me, you are still spending money you don't need to spend. however, if I DO need to purchase something, I usually try to find it on sale. I rarely buy things at full price because I know the retail cycle, everything eventually goes on sale!

Absolutely. No matter what I am shopping for, that is the magic four-letter word that gets me to buy things. They are definitely fun for me. I love being able to go to the store, no matter what kind, and see sales. I shop the sales at teh grocery store every week when buying food in the store. I tned to surf the clearance racks and the sale areas before looking through the rest of a store. If I need something, I will buy it regardless of the price, but if I can get a deal, then hell yeah!

Yes I am a "sale" shopper. I do love to shop especially when a sale promotion is offered. One thing I hate about a sale promo is that the availability of the size and/or color of the item.

I try to do most of my buying when things are on sale. I don't see any reason to pay full price if it'll be cheaper soon. Unless it's an emergency and I can't wait. But I try to plan ahead for those things. I don't go shopping just because they're having a sale though. I don't have the money to just buy stuff I don't need. That's good though I guess.

yes, i alwys like to pop into the shop where sale board is displayed , what so ever be their pricing and all, that apart, i always check out the shop. i love to do window shopping a lot, i just love it and enjoy asking the prices , then bargaining then going off without buying and the making the shop keeper little irritated.... i just love to enjoy while shopping.

Most definitely. I only buy clothing/shoes/accessories on sale. I never buy retail price. I always wait for a good bargain sale.

I'm not lured by sales as much as I am by "steals". I go the thrift shops and yard sales!

Well, not all the time really. Its tempting but sometimes we just have to control ourselves because the money is also most needed somewhere else. But if it wasnt, i would have gone to every sale i went to but only if its really a great bargain and not just marked up price and supposedly already discounted trick:P

Yes I am one of them, money is hard to earn nowadays so it's just wise and practical to go for sales shopping.

Usually if it is something I need than I'll go and participate in the sale. If it is not something I need than I won't get it. Just depends on the mood I am in really.

I just just an occasional shopper. Sales definitely catch my eye, but that's that. I don't specifically go when there is a sale, or keep away if there isn't one. :P

i love sales! especially mall-wide ones. i usually stop by every shop that has that sale sign up. but sometimes i only buy when it's 50% off because i sometimes don't feel like buying stuff when it's just less 10%.

I hate sales. Here in our country, I’ve noticed that every time they have a sale they usually keep the good stuffs until the sale is finish. So maybe, they are just putting on sale the non-saleable items. Also, I’m really not attracted to sales because there’s always a big crowd trooping to the malls every time there’s a sale and I hate to fight my way with the big crowd just to get the sale item that I want.
