Do you shop online or overseas? The fantastic thing about online shopping is that choice is so much greater than what you may find locally. But one of the issues has been all those pesky international transaction fees on purchases and currency conversion fees. Fortunately GE Money have a credit card called 28 Degrees MasterCard which removes these issues.
One of the biggest online shopping days of the year is Cyber Monday, the Monday following the North American holiday of Thanksgiving (this year it’s on December 2, US time) as North American online retailers offer lots of discounts on this day. Right now’s a great time to start planning your Christmas shopping, and take advantage of those discounts on Cyber Monday.
One of my favourite things about online shopping is that you can avoid all the hassles of finding a car park and you can browse for those lovely gifts for your friends and family from the comfort of your computer, plus have them delivered to your door, or to the door of the recipient of the gift (particularly useful when you have friends and family living in different parts of the world to you).
I’ve started to compile a list of present ideas for my friends and family for Christmas this year.
Here are some of the pieces I’d be choosing
120 AUD – zappos.com
135 AUD – katespade.com
92 AUD – bluefly.com
125 AUD – allsole.com
145 AUD – nordstrom.com
78 AUD – amara.com
- A gorgeous, fun cuff bracelet for my fashionable friend.
- A watch with big, easy to read numbers and face for my Mum as her eyesight is deteriorating with age.
- A hot pink wallet (my happy colour, and easy to find in the bottom of your handbag) for me
- A messenger bag for my man (so I can throw out that rucksack)
- My Dad loves a collared shirt in a check or stripe, the blue in this one matches his blue eyes.
- A Spineless Classic print of the classic Jane Austen novel Pride and Prejudice for my book loving friend. Did you know, that the entire novel is printed in readable font (ok, you need some glasses to read it) on this poster?
So if you want to get organised for Christmas this year, take advantage of the fabulous prices you can get online on Cyber Monday and to avoid international transaction fees on purchases check out the 28 Degrees MasterCard.
