More About Uncommon Goods
So, you know you can find uncommonly cool stuff & unique gift ideas from UncommonGoods, but you really want to know how to make your dollar stretch at the same time. Well, we've got a few tips for how to use their website to do just that.
First, you will notice a "Sale" section of their site clearly marked on their homepage. Right now, it's on the menu bar on the upper right of the homepage. They offer all of the usual ways to search for sale items. You can sort by price (among other options) if you really need to stick to a specific budget.
They list their sale items at 30 – 70% off retail. The longer an item stays in inventory, the deeper the discount. Of course, if you need something for a season holiday, that may not help you before the holiday, but check back after and you could find big savings.
One of the cool aspects of their site is that the products are laid out in a very simple, clean design without a lot of distraction. They also categorize the products by star reviews, with 5 star being the best, & highlight that portion of their product layout. This is really helpful if you're browsing UncommonGoods.com for ideas & want a quick snapshot of the things that others like.
But they don't stop at your normal sales or clearance items page. Then again, how could they? They sell uncommon goods so they can't be common themselves. Get the Uncommon Goods "Secret Sales" delivered via email. The thing is, these sales are only available to their email subscribers, so you've got to get on board if you want to be in the know.
Enthusiast's Tip: if you really love Uncommon Goods & want to be the first to know about every product they offer, add their RSS feed. They list every new product there as soon as it becomes available.
