I am not too excited at the raining discounts and cashback offers in the name of festive season sales in shops and online shopping. Quality products come for a price and most commodities on sale are defective or poor quality products that have been rejected in quality control and now dumped at heavy discount. Business is not charity and cashback offers which even offer 100 percent back are to fool customers and shoppers should read the hidden clauses before ordering them than repent later.
Buy fewer but quality products that are value for money. Cheap clothing wouldn’t last more than a few washes but a quality branded one would last for ages. Duplicate products too are dumped in festive season sale and government too should control such frauds by conducting raids and alerting customers. It is our hard earned money and we should be cautious of what we pay for even though products come at hefty discounts!
