Discounts are the main attraction while we shop in major outlets or the city. Its the fabulous offers on pantaloons or montecarlo which catch my eye most often. I seldom make shopings online and prefer to be in direct contact with the dealer to make sure of the product which I am purchasing!

Discounts really help.. cause it gives you another reason to buy the item that you like. LOL. Specially if it is really pricy and you've been planning on buying it for the longest time, but you just can't seem to have enough for you to buy it.. Just experienced it last week, and I keep telling myself that IT IS a good bargain.. =)

At the departmental store, I always look out for discounts when shopping for clothes and other necessary stuff. There are sometimes 20%-30% off for baby milk bottles. For other bigger fashion outlet, I would make sure I check on the discounted items first! Sometimes, I could find the cloth that once I loved with more than 50% off.

Yep, it sure is. I also seldom buy things that are not on sale. Most of my clothing items have been on the racks of at least a 10% discount sale. They are still good to use and are actually brand new. I also do like to purchase something in person. We can pick out the color and style that we like and if we ever change our minds we can just give it back on the rack or before we ever get to pay for them. We just have a lot of array of choices and we can bundle them all before paying for them all at once. That would be less stressful and we're sure that what we are going home with is something that we really wanted.

Not quite. Here in my country, if it's a huge discount and looks too good to be true, one should not expect much from the product -- there may not be enough sizes or it could be that they're already selling the ones on display or there's some sort of hidden damage on the product or it will expire really soon. 10% discounts would still have quality products, but 10% is almost negligible.
