ASOS look intent on keeping their customers smiling after launching an "Up to 50% off" sale yesterday. And as I'll show you below, it's actually possible to find items for less than half price of what they were originally listed for. The good thing as well as that it looks like ASOS have actually marked down a large variety of items, as often sales that are tagged as being applicable to "selected items only" can be very limiting. Having looked through the men's section, for example, it wasn't difficult to find some great bargains. Also would appear as though there's a better stock of men's clothing in terms of available sizes than for women.
Men's 4 Piece Outfit for $62.85
Browsing through a few different categories of men's clothing, I sorted items in price order from lowest to highest so that I could easily see the cheapest one's first. By doing this I found it was pretty easy to put together an entire outfit consisting of a pair of shoes, jeans, a t-shirt and a cotton jumper for under $65. Now that's good value, particularly when you consider that the price includes shipping from the UK as well.
The items I selected were as follows:
- T-shirt with scoop neck in "dusky green marl" colour for $7.62 (sizes: XXS - XL)
- Loose jeans in "dark wash" colour for $17.14 (sizes: 28 - 34, except 32 Short)
- Plimsolls shoes in navy with contrast heel in white for $17.41 (sizes: AU 5 - 10)
- Shawl neck jumper (100% cotton) in beige for $20.95 (sizes: XXXS - XXXL)
The total cost of these items once added to my shopping cart was $62.85, which when looking at the prices they've been marked down from is actually less than half their original prices (total of $144.75).
Women's 3 Piece outfit for $52.37
Browsing through the women's categories, it quite quickly became clear that on the lower-priced items there was generally much lower levels of available stock than in the men's section. This made it harder to pick out items in the various clothing categories in order to put an outfit together. However, I did still manage to pick out a women's casual summer outfit that offers great value too.
- New Look America White Trainers for $12.38 (sizes AU 5 - 10)
-ASOS Sundress with bandeau neckline in floral print for $13.33 (sizes AU 4 - 18)
- Vero Moda zip back jumper in black/white/rose dust for $26.66 (sizes: XS- XL)
These three items in my shopping cart brought the total to $52.37 including delivery. Compared with what I would have paid before the sale, this combination of clothing gives me a saving of $39.03 (based on the original list prices totalling $91.40 together). So not quite half price but still a good deal for a funky pair of trainers, a fun summery dress and a fashionable Vero Moda jumper to enhance your summer wardrobe.
It doesn't actually say how long this sale is on for but it will most likely be on for at least a few days or until stocks run out on the selected items. ASOS have also specified on their website that if you order by 2pm AEDST on the 20th of December, you can select express shipping to have your order delivered
