Well, if you regularly read the newspaper, or should I say, scan the useless parts of the newspaper just like me, especially the parts that don't have any news anymore and merit being called ad-paper instead of newspaper, you already know about this sale.
This is an Online Sale ONLY and ONLY for those who own a CitiBank card.
Let me tell you that I was actually waiting for a sale, as there are lots of things I'm looking to buy. My brother is getting married in 2 months, so there's a lot of stuff I need to pick up, plus I have a growing infant who is outgrowing everything from diapers to clothes to booties, and of course I wanted some cute gifts for my elder daughter for Christmas.
I spent the entire past hour scanning through the sale.....
Before I tell you more, in case you don't know, the sale ends today (this one is from 4th-5thDec) and here are the participating brands:
- indiatimes shopping

- carat lane

The sale SUCKS, big time! And what a waste of time......For ages now, these big brands and malls have been fooling customers like us into believing that a sale is the best time to buy. Well, not really.
For starters, each time a sale comes up, the discounts are applicable only on the highest-priced items, so you end up paying almost as much, or sometimes, even more, than what you would have paid otherwise, during off-sale period.
Also, the discount percentage is really low and doesn't really make any difference.
The sites I went on for this particular sale were:
- Shoppers stop
- First Cry
- Baby Oye
I've already logged off, can't waste anymore time here. Did you get to buy anything? Do let me know :-)
