How to: Make the Most of Your EOFY Shopping
The End of the Financial Year (EOFY) is a great time to update, upgrade or replace your suite of appliances in the home or at work. Some purchases, specifically for business purposes, can be claimed to help provide you with some tax benefits when it comes to doing your tax. Another way to think of EOFY specials is that they’re like the Christmas sales, except you receive the gift as opposed to someone else.
In this blog, we’ll show you how you can use the National Product Review website as a resource to help you shop smarter this End of Financial Year. At the end, we’ll also share some of our top picked products.
Read Real Reviews
Use this time to read what other real consumers have said (both positive and negative) about your product of interest. Find out firsthand if the item is worth your time and money before you go and purchase it.
Can’t decide what product to buy? Now you can choose up to four products and compare them side by side so you can make a better decision about which product is better for your needs.
Make a Wishlist
Have a few things you want? Create a wishlist by adding all the items you need or want. When you’re ready to purchase, use the list to make shopping easier! The wishlist can be shared with family and friends if it forms part of your special occasion gift registry.
Find your Nearest Retailer
Why hop on each individual retailer’s site to find your store when you can do it right here, in one place on National Product Review. Hop onto the ‘Where to Buy’ tab on the top menu to see the range of retailers you can shop with. Or once you’ve found your perfect product, scroll down to the bottom where you can see where you can buy it, either in store or online!
