Despite all my mentions of Shop It To Me Sale Mail Alerts, you may not have been interested… But now that the holidays are near, you might want to reconsider. And those of you who are receiving the personalized email alerts to sales should also pay attention to this, because you might be missing out on something too!
As I’ve said before, Sale Mail alerts are completely customizable; you pick the items, the sizes, the brands, designers, labels and stores. At holiday, or any gift giving time, it’s a good idea to go in and update those custom settings. For example, while I’m always focused on lingerie for me and a few other “typical” needs for the family (jeans & shoes, particularly; why do they wear out so fast? lol), I’ve now made sure to add the usual gift-needing-suspects, their sizes and favorite labels, etc.
For example, my brother-in-laws always want shirts, my mother-in-law loves jewelry, and my nieces and nephews all are (according to their mothers) in need of pants and shoes (it’s nice to know it’s not just me and my kids!). So now I’ve added the items on their wishlists, in their sizes, from the stores they love (and those I trust) — and I’m getting alerts to those items on sale!
Now I won’t miss a thing! And, as all the notices to when my items are on sale come in my one daily alert, there’s no extra “junk” in the inbox; one scan of my one sale alert email, and I’m kept in the know on how to save more dough.
When the holiday shopping is done, I’ll simply untoggle those sizes and clothing items etc. I no longer need. Voila! Easy peasy lemon squeezey!
These alerts save time and money, and both are important at holiday time.
