You know what? Its already November and that means it’ll soon be time for the ubiquitous Holiday sets to appear for Christmas, and for the sales to hit in store. Also, time for cosmetic companies to amp up their gift with purchase (GWP) offers.
My question for you today is this : Do you buy more just to get the Gift with Purchase?
A few years ago, my answer is yes. I’d get suckered in one way or another ostensibly to get that “7 piece skincare deluxe sample set worth RM300 with exclusive handbag” if I just spend RM200 more.
In my head I’d think “Hey! I just have to spend a total of RM350 and I’d get RM300 worth of samples plus a bag! That means my actual purchase is only RM50! Wah! That’s worth it!” So I’d hunt around the counter till I found something that I might want but definitely did not need, plonk down my credit card to pay RM400 and walk away with my purchases and the “GWP worth RM350 and exclusive bag”, happy to get a bargain.
