Hello ShopaHAULics, Tiffany here and Hot Topic is dangerous territory when it comes to fanatics, like me and you. I love that there is so much merchandise that one can choose from but what I don’t like is the jacked up prices. So, here are a few tips and tricks to help you save money and stay away from regretful purchases in the future.
Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off + Earning Hot Cash. The best time to save is when they are offering this and Hot Cash. Hot Cash is a currency that they use where you purchase a minimum of $30 to get $15 Hot Cash. You save these for a month or two and then you can redeem them. You HAVE to keep track of when you can use them because you will end up forgetting, trust me, I have.
Using Hot Cash. When you are waiting those two months or so, check every now and then in store or online for items that you really want. More than likely they will go on sale or be shoved into clearance. When you are looking for items, in store, have your calculator on your phone out so that you can keep a tab of what you are buying. The whole point is not to overspend with Hot Cash, you want to get your money’s worth.
Buy 1, Get 1 Clearance. This one can be tricky because not all clearance is up to everyone’s liking and it is generally picked over. I think that this is a good chance to get gifts though if you have friends who love Hot Topic or something particularly nerdy like Doctor Who or something.
Ship to Store. Chances are that the thing you want will be online. There is a wider selection of items online and you can ship to the store for FREE! Just remember to have your ID when you pick up your item or e-mail confirmation, they check them.
I hope that these tips help you all out!
