The alarm goes off.
Bleary eyed, I reach out to hit the snooze button but oh hang on, this isn’t quite like any other morning…
This is Black Friday morning!!
I reach out for my mobile only to find promotional text messages raining down from my favourite stores.
Bring on group chat with my retail-vice squad, Pinkie & YQ (Jeffie’s away on an Eat Pray Love) for a FOMO throw around.
Oh wait hang on, my shopping cards…!!
And let’s not forget my credit cards from all the different banks. We simply must not miss out on any further credit card promotions that could be available on top of the Black Friday store discounts.
The provision of this “just in case / kiasu” scenario saw a startling number of credit cards beginning to innocently pile up on the dresser.
Clearly the everyday wallet with four card slots isn’t going to work on a shop-bob day like today.
Is it possible for us to get the most out of our spends with just a nominal number of credit cards?
How am I able to find out which credit card will give me the “best bang for the buck”?
Perhaps my favourite comparison site, GoBear could introduce a new feature that would help shoppers compare which credit card would best fit their retail inclinations.
This way we can all focus the in-store decision making on our purchases and not have to grapple with additional issues of which credit card to pay with.
What could Bear do for retail-holics?
Watch this space for details.
