One of the most important parts of using coupons is learning when the coupons should be used.
Learning to use the coupons combined with the lowest sales price can help the customer to save between fifty to seventy five percent of the price of the product from household goods to food – but can only be completed when customers understand the sales cycles and are able to know when the right time to buy is.
What should the customer understand about sales cycles? The first thing that customers need to understand about sales cycles is that products have a high point and a low point of their sale price. At the high point in the sales cycles customers are required to pay full price for the item, but at the low point in the sales cycles customers can save up to fifty percent just from timing the product purchase right.
When the item is on sale at the low point in the cycle (which the customer can determine by tracking the price of the item) the customer should stock up on that item, especially if the customer has a coupon for the item. The coupon applied to the sale price is going to drastically reduce the price of the item and allow the customer to avoid paying full price.
How often do products go on sale? Once the customer identifies the low point in the sales cycles, it’s important to realise that the item will not be on sale again for at least three months. The average sales cycle will last between three to six months, and therefore the sale item should be purchased at the rock bottom price to avoid paying full price.
Learning about sales cycles can allow customers to determine how many of an item to buy – as they can determine how many are going to be used before the items are likely going to be on sale and calculate this accordingly on their shopping trip.
