GOSF or Google Online Shopping Festival goes online starting December 10th, all the way to December 12th. It has often been referred to as the Indian version of the Black Friday sale; and seen as a time when several people plan to make expensive purchases, ranging from electronics to clothing to apparel. However, in the mad rush to pick up the best deals in this period, we all end up missing out that killer one just because we were not actively tracking every deal. Given the large number of partners and offers online, it does become an arduous task catching hold of these deals and to know what exactly to expect from GOSF. This is why, we believe the five methods that we have listed below are perhaps the best ways for you to stay on top of your discovering games, during this GOSF Sale.
The best way to stay up to date with GOSF deals is to be following the right people on Twitter who tweet often about deals. Twitter handles such as @ and @ are worth following at this time. You can actually add them to your notification list so that you will be notified in real time as when the handles tweet about any deal going live. The official GOSF handle too would be a good account to follow.
Subscribing to the newsletters of the partners:
Good old way, but in case you wish to stay in touch with all the latest happenings from the various partners directly, then this is a good time to register on their website and subscribe to the newsletters. They maybe a nuisance, but you can always subscribe away from them once the sale is over. Not just this, you can also subscribe to the official newsletter on the official GOSF site here.
Dedicated Deal Websites:
You can always checkout sites like MySmartprice or the Coupondunia dedicated page to keep up to pace with all the deals that happen during the festival. The MSP page for GOSF Deals especially is really useful in helping you pick the right deal as all of them are sorted by the category of products. Several other sites too such as Cuponation also have dedicated sections for the GOSF deals.
Directly Visiting the Websites:
GOSF this year has over 450 e-com partners, and therefore it is impossible to keep a check on all the sites simultaneously. However, the big players can be easily tracked and you must totally have them in your tabs to keep an eye for any upcoming deals. Sites like Ebay, PayTM will be definitely worth keeping an eye on.
Word of Mouth
As much as we like the digital world, there is nothing that beats the good old alert from your friends. Make sure you have your WhatsApp groups and other connection mediums ready and can be accessed during the sale. Also, not a bad idea to keep your friends updated, in case you find a deal that may do them good and help them out.
