Not a long time ago an online venture planned a ‘Big Billion Day’ and maybe it is suffice to say how bravely it plotted its own suicide. I’d say Kudos to the team they tried their best. So why did I begin the article with this point as reference? My point being GOSF is already around the corner and all you ‘oh-i-so-want-to-buy-this-but-damn-thats-way-outta-my-budget’ (Oh I am included in this category) thinkers and the others brace yourselves for another online shopping festival – GOSF.
Have you noticed I still haven’t mentioned the full form of GOSF? If my words for you are sounding of an alien dialect, The Royale has already covered the history of GOSF in the GOSF Origins – The Magnum Opus of Online Shopping Festivals. Give that a quick read and you’ll be surely all prepped to give this a read.
So hear (yes literally hear, not ‘here’) I give you tips to get prepped for the GOSF.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AN INTERNET CONNECTION (a working connection I mean)
As lame as I may sound right now, I am dead sure there will be thousands of you crying on that very day and playing the blame game – “I’d told you to get the connection renewed, didn’t I?” … “oh I thought you’d know that it’s the last day”… So keep your dates in check and be ready.
CHECK YOUR CREDIT AND DEBIT CARDS
This point is valid to especially those people who are star-crossed like me. You eagerly wait for a particular product – excitedly open the browser – go to the payments page – look for your wallet – and then the horror unfolds. You can’t find your Credit/Debit Card!!!
And by the time you do, well the products’ outta stock!!! (yeah I know, I’ve been there a zillion times). Make sure your card is safe with you. Remember your Credit/Debit Card is as it’s said, ‘my precious’
BY-HEART YOUR NET BANKING PASSWORDS
Okay, by-heart may not be the apt word here but I am super-confident that my message is conveyed. Now, you might wonder who the hell forgets the net-banking password? Oh trust me the excitement of booking the product is enough for that ‘i’ on the keyboard to magically become ‘o’ and voila – WRONG PASSWORD ENTERED.
BANK BALANCE KITNA HAI?
Agreed, many of you might be doing the uncle scrooge dive once in a while in your treasure tank but hey – hathon ki paacho ungliya same toh nahi hoti na. (sob sob ) I know there are many absent-minded people (like me) who have their eyes on the products only – like a lion watches the prey. Yeah yeah, you might have like multiple accounts to choose from but make sure you’ve got enough in your kitty to shop.
MAKE A ‘I HAVE TO BUY THIS LIST’
I know these tips might sound oh so motherly; but kids ( ;-)) take my word on this, on that very day there’s a 99.00000000000088% chance that you go all galoot and conveniently decide to shop randomly. What’s it gonna cost you to make a list of your much craved products? Besides, once you are done with the list you can go look for other interesting things on offer.
SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER
Promotion Alert!!! ( :-P) I know you all are smart enough to make a list. Now that I’ve mentioned about the newsletter you might as well sign-up for it and ignore the last point (;-)). On a serious note – Our Newsletter will give you all the updates you need about GOSF — Offers, coupons, various deals – many of which you might not be aware of. A ‘To Buy List’ and A Newsletter subscription is enough I’d say.
DO NOT GO BONKERS IF THE WEBSITE CRASHES – KEEP CALM & LOG ON TO COUPONRAJA
So who wants to bet for this? By no means have I doubted the magnanimous preparations of Google but hey even the best have their worst days. Practically handling a zillion crazy online shoppers at a time is a mammoth task. So by chance if the website crashes (or not), log in to our website to get those offers. Yes. We’ve got you sorted.
WHERE DO I FIND THE BEST DEALS?
This question has the depth to qualify as a centillion rupee question? (oh come on you expected me to use dollars?, really :P) So why is the question so important? I’ve got the List, I’ve subscribed to the newsletter (and am too lazy to read it) but I can’t find the best deals. No matter – all you need to do is tell us (couponraja) on social media and we will get you the best deals. It’s that simple.
These 8 handy tips will surely ensure you have an amazing time while shopping for your loved products. So now that you’re full prepped give us a chance to enlighten you on the categories of the GOSF. Keep reading this space for more info on GOSF.
