So, fellow SHEIN enthusiasts, make yourself a cozy cup of tea and prepare to delve into these clever tricks that guarantee ultimate savings!
As a savvy shopper, Christie may not frequent SHEIN but knows precisely how to maximize cost savings when she does indulge in a shopping spree. Brace yourself for her top 5 hacks that are bound to trim a generous 20-30% off your final bill. So, without further ado, let’s unveil Christie’s brilliant strategies for achieving the ultimate cost savings on your Shein orders!
1. Leveraging on USD
Unleash the power of SHEIN points to effortlessly reduce your final bill! There are two primary avenues for amassing these precious points: through reviews and daily check-ins. The real beauty lies in the fact that SHEIN points hold a USD value, which means every point you earn gets magnified by a factor of x1.36 (or the prevailing exchange rate) when you check out, aligning with the value in SGD. Brace yourself for some substantial balance offsetting as your accumulated points work their way!
2. Contribute Reviews for Points
Embark on the rewarding journey of earning points by sharing your valuable reviews! This incredibly efficient method allows you to accumulate a significant number of points in no time. Simply reviewing around 5-6 items from your order can fetch you approximately 100 points, equivalent to a delightful sum of around SGD 1.40. Imagine the possibilities when you place an order with 15 items – you could effortlessly earn around SGD 4-5 worth of points! The best part? It doesn’t demand much of your time. A concise one-liner suffices for your review, but remember to include a photo to unlock the full potential of earning those points!
3. The Daily Streak
Unlock a world of points with SHEIN’s daily check-in feature! Every day you log in consecutively, SHEIN rewards you with points that work wonders in offsetting your final fee. Although these check-in points may appear modest at first glance, their cumulative power should not be underestimated. A week of dedicated consecutive check-ins can effortlessly accumulate 50-70 points, translating to an impressive value of approximately $0.70-1.51 (in SGD). Over the course of 10 weeks, by simply investing a mere 5 seconds each day to launch the app, check-in, and exit, you can revel in the delight of earning a cool SGD 7-10 for absolutely free!
Pro Tips: Enable notifications to remind yourself to check in and maintain your daily streak. Just remember to swiftly exit the app after checking in to resist the temptation of further shopping adventures.
4. Maximize Vouchers
Access maximum vouchers by strategically adding extra items to meet the minimum spending requirement! In case you fall short of reaching the threshold for the coveted 20% or 30% voucher, fear not. SHEIN has your back with its hassle-free return policy. As long as the items are non-sale items and within 30 days of receiving them, you can easily return them for a refund. Once you hit the minimum spending for that irresistible 20% or 30% voucher, rejoice! This discount typically applies to your entire checkout, ensuring you enjoy substantial cost savings on your complete haul. The cherry on top? SHEIN offers a complimentary pickup service, where they arrange for someone to collect the returned clothes right from your doorstep, completely free of charge! After this clever maneuver, you have the freedom to choose how you’d like to be refunded. The important thing is that you’ve successfully secured that coveted 20% or 30% discount on the items you’ve been eyeing.
5. Use Grabpay
Opting for GrabPay as the preferred payment method presents a myriad of advantages! On occasion, when one reaches a minimum spending threshold on SHEIN (approximately $60 if memory serves correctly), Grab generously offers $5 SHEIN discounts. Although a visual representation of this enticing offer is unavailable, it has been utilized multiple times, resulting in an additional $5 reduction on various purchases. In the event that the voucher is not currently available, fear not, for alternative perks await. Accumulating points or opting for the convenience of paying in four monthly installments, or perhaps even combining both options, can enhance the overall shopping experience. Ultimately, the choice of payment method is in the hands of the shopper, ensuring that the selection aligns with their desired benefits and preferences.
Having been an avid SHEIN shopper in the past, she realized all of these hacks gradually dawned upon them. However, after the whole SHEIN scandal came to light, she made a conscious effort to reduce their Shein orders in order to minimize their contribution to the fast fashion dilemma. It’s understandable that for some, Shein remains a convenient option, especially when affordable clothing options are limited elsewhere. Who has the luxury to splurge $40 on a basic blog shop top, after all? Therefore, it is important to employ these hacks wisely and exercise restraint, ensuring that Shein is visited only when truly necessary.
