Of course, it’s not all about treating yo’self – although that is nice. There’s always a mountain of kids’ clothes to buy, shoes, swimming gear and the likes and who doesn’t want to save a bit of cash in the process?
Let’s not also forget that we’re on the slippery slope towards Christmas. If you have room to store a few sneaky surprises, consider buying them during the AfterYAY event. That’s more money in your pocket for the spiked eggnog after all.
Let’s get EXCITED!
If Afterpay’s Facebook feed is any indication of just how exciting shopping can be, one commenter made it clear AfterYAY was an event not to be missed, saying “Yay!!! birthday and Christmas rolled into one!”. WE HEAR YOU GIRLFRIEND. There’s also a mention of “OMG!!!!!! No more Afterpays until this sale is on!”, which we also totally understand.
Not just an awesome sale for us buyers, it’s also fab for retailers. So successful are the AfterYAY sales, Finder reported that the inaugural Afterpay Day sale broke retail records with a mammoth $15 million of sales processed, at a rate of 1.5 orders processed per second. That’s a LOT of happy shoppers!
