How you can save money on VELUX Skylights
Here are three strategies to help you save money on VELUX Skylights:
- 1Wait for discounts or sales
- 2Hunt for the lowest price
- 3Buy before the price rise
1. Wait for Sales
End of financial year, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas or Boxing Day. If you’ve got patience, then you could wait for a sale to get a discounted price.
But, there’s no guarantee the item you want will go on sale. And with inflation rising, prices could rise in the meantime.
If you’re not on the retailer’s mailing list, you might not know when the sale happens. Or you might get distracted with other things. Adding a reminder to your calendar is a possible workaround.
2. Go Price Hunting
It’s unlikely there will be any VELUX distributors, even the “big boys”, who can absorb the increased cost. Which means it will be passed directly onto consumers.
There is still a chance that you could get the lowest price by shopping around. Make sure you add the shipping costs into your equations. There are plenty of online stores that use a low sticker price to get you to their website and then slug you a marked-up shipping fee to compensate, so watch out.
Warning: due to the variety of the VELUX product range, it can be tricky getting the right one for your situation. Make sure you order from a business that will give you pre-sales support. Or, no questions asked returns, in case you order the wrong product.
If you happen to find a better price at a competitor’s website, try sending an email to see if the business will price match. Give us a call (1300 35 15 15) and we’ll certainly do our best match their price or even beat it!
