Asos is my go-to online shopping store because it has every trendy item, basic t-shirt, and go-getter shoes that I want. When I’m in a bind for an outfit- I go to Asos. If I want something unique or funky- I go to Asos. Basically, it’s my fashion lifeline. I want to share with you some of my secrets to have the best shopping experience on Asos.
Two-Day Shipping: Is this even real? Yes, your order from Europe gets here faster than any package from U.S.A. retailers. Shipping is free for orders over $120. Or, you can do what I did and pay $19 one time (for the whole year) and get free two-day shipping on any order. I LOVE that it comes so fast!
10% Student discount: Students get a 10% discount for as long as you are enrolled in school and have a valid university email. Want in on a secret? This is great for employees at University’s or Professors. Just use your Univeristy email and sign up as a “student.”
Try everything on with your current wardrobe: Sometimes people are worried about online retailers and not being able to try on items at stores. Asos offers a very lenient return policy with 28 days AND free return shipping with a pre-paid label. The bag they send your clothes in is reusable. Just re-pack the clothes you don’t want and attach your pre-paid label! This makes it SO easy to buy things in multiple sizes and send back the items that don’t fit. You can also try on clothes in the comfort of your own home to make sure your new pieces go with your current wardrobe 🙂
Secrets to shopping on Asos
The Video: All of the clothes are displayed in photos AND video! I love watching the videos because it really allows me to determine whether I like the item or not. I truly believe I return fewer items due to the videos. It really helps capture the clothing and accessories.
Discounts on new inventory: Sales are great, but most sales are last seasons items. Asos sends out store-wide coupons every few months where you can use it on regular priced merchandise. They will send you an email. Here’s a tip: buy everything you want in one go because most of the time you can’t use the same coupon twice.
The inventory is bountiful: There is SO much inventory. I prefer to shop on Asos when I have something specific in mind. This way it doesn’t become overwhelming. Use the search bar at the top. Be specific i.e “white jumpsuit” or “pink bathing suit.”
Quality clothes unlike Forver21: There may be inventory close to Forever21 but the quality is far superior. I avoid high fashion stores due to poor quality and faulty items. The pieces I have received from Asos have been thick material and lovely fabrics.
Girls of all sizes: This may be the best part! They have special sizes for petites, tall women, plus sizes, and maternity. Tip: when searching for items go to the toolbar and click on “range” from there you can pick a collection such as petite, plus size, etc and it will show you clothes for your size preference!
