Maximize your Savings
Initially, Flagship sales offered amazing discounts, they do so now too, but on very few products. What actually happens now is mostly price games, the price of products goes up a few days before grand sales like these, and at the time of the sale, the prices are dropped.
To save yourself from these deal baits, you could use a price tracker to know the history of a product’s price, this way you will know for certain if a product is at its lowest price. Combine this with sites like Desidime and Cashkaro to get info on steal deals. There are also plenty of groups on social media platforms dedicated to posting information on killer deals, it would be worthwhile to check them out.
