Black Friday is just around the corner and fortunately for us pinups most of our favorite brands, whether they’re here in the states or international, are holding fantastic sales! This is typically the time of year where you can score the best deals from our beloved reproduction brands. That being said, it’s wise to be prepared because items sell out lightning fast. Here are some tips and tricks to traversing the online pinup world on Black Friday and Cyber Monday:
- Create a wish list. It’s best to go into this with a mission. Plan out which items you hope to procure from each website and, if possible, add items to your cart before the sales begin (of course, whether the items remain in your cart overnight is dependent on the website).
- Be prepared to wake up at odd hours. Find out exactly what time each sale begins, particularly when shopping websites located outside of your country, and set your alarms. As mentioned above, items sell quickly, so the sooner you log on the better chance you have of scoring your must-have items.
- Websites might crash. Don’t be surprised if this happens. Like I said, this is the time of year when you can get the best prices on reproduction garments and accessories. Make sure that you stay on each website until you receive a confirmation code that your order went through.
- Make sure that your PayPal information is correct. Most websites accept PayPal, which I’ve found to be the easiest way to shop internationally. Make sure that your payment information and shipping address is up to date beforehand to avoid any disappointment or delay in the purchase process.
- Check the size charts. Generally, items purchased through these sales cannot be exchanged or refunded, so be sure to check the size charts and your measurements to ensure the best fit.
