Calling all fashionistas!!

Good Morning Girls!

I have a little riddle for you today

Imagine this, a new fashion brand just launched, you love the clothes and find the perfect outfit for your next night out. When you get to the checkout online you are given the option, you can just buy the outfit, or you can join the members area. The members area costs £5 a month but you will get £10 store credit every month for that, as well as access to other benefits like priority viewings of new ranges and free entry into fabulous prize draws.

So My question to you is, do you pay the £5 a month membership?

Answers & comments in the comments please. 

xoxo

  1. I think i would, yes. Because your getting so many benefits from paying the £5 a month. So really it would be worth while :)!!!

  2. seems a bit too good to be true - i would if the brand was well known to me - like Topshop or New Look, or if could suss out the clothes instore first, i think i would be slightly reluctant to buy into a new fashion brand, espesh thats its only online.

    however, if the site was popular and i knew that it had a good reputation (like asos) i would, no doubt look into it.

    hope this helps :) xxxx

  3. To be honest, I don't think I'd go for something like that - it's one of those ideas that sounds great (like store cards), but then it's really just another expense!

    Hope this helps :)

  4. I think it would be benefical! Especially as your getting 10 pound store credit. But as it's a new brand chack them out first xx

  5. If it was a store I regularly shopped from then I probably would! But if not then I wouldn't, as really when you are paying £5, you only really get £5 off...and prize draws never do it for me, as I never win lol!

    Also I would have to make sure that I will get emailed with a code or something every month for my money off, ad I would likely forget!!

  7. No I wouldn't. You're essentially paying £5 a month to get £5 store credit...an incentive to keep buying on a regular basis and tbh I never buy things EVERY SINGLE month from the same place. It doesn't seem worth it unless you have a regular disposable income to keep on buying from the same store. The shop makes money if you buy from them or if you don't, but they make it look like it's a win/win. I think I'd soon get bored buying from the same place and the hype would soon wear off. xx

  8. I would probably defer until I had had a full opportunity to decide if this new brand was something I would like to purchase from again.
    Also…it would depend if they gave you the chance to cancel your membership at a month’s notice or if you are tied into it for a longer length of time…! Hmmm…

  9. It would depend on the brand, quality, prices etc...

    I wouldn't apply straight away as I am really fussy with clothes and would want to make sure I actually liked the quality and fit of the clothes before signing up for anything.

    Also £5 a month can add up so unless you shop regularly it can get expensive and you may feel tied in - how long would the subscription be for?

    There are also postage costs to be considered - if you only effectively save £5 a month then spend that on p&p it's not that great - especially when ASOS have their premier service at £14.95 at the moment for unlimited next day delivery for a year - just over £1 a month - and they stock a variety of brands.

    Hope this helps :) x

  10. No I definetly wouldn't. It sounds like a waste of time, so you pay £5 and then get back £10 in store credit? I'd rather just pay for what I buy and not bother getting into any monthly payments. I would stay well away.

  11. Unless it was Topshop where my pay often gets spent every month, then probably. However, if you don't shop there every month are you going to benefit from paying this £5? nope. xx

  12. I wouldn't either, not even for a place I shop at often (New Look etc) It just doesn't seem like your gaining anything, you're paying £5 to get £5 store credit back. I wouldn't want the monthly charge either and I personally wouldn't be that interested in priority viewings of collections but I can see why others might.

  13. Wait I just realised you are talking about a new brand and I had said that i would if it was a brand i shopped regularly at!

    If it was a new brand then definetly not! Not for quite a few months down the line to see if I like the goods, choice of clothes etc x

  14. I don't think I would.
    It sounds like you would be forced to buy something every month, and what if there was nothing you wanted or you didn't have enough money that month.

  16. If you really like the stuff then I suppose, but look at it like this - you pay £5 a month for £10 credit, so essentially you are only going to get £5 credit as you've already put some in.
    It wouldn't personally entice me, mainly because it would mean buying something every month which would just leave me with things I don't really want.

  17. No I don't think I would only because you are only getting an extra £5 a month.. and with the big brands I like £5 would not go that far at all just think of the expense that is £60 a year .. a pretty huge expense in my opinion. Others may like the idea,, it is a good idea just not for me

  18. I think it depends on my disposable income, £10 store credit is great if you were going to shop there anyway....but it you wouldnt have bought any new clothes that month then you will end up spending more money that you save. I dont mind spending money on nice things, if I'm earning enough to do it sensibly. xx

  19. beth catchpole suggested a good thing as if u like the outfit, buy it then if u still like it become a member... thats good cause if u think of it the clothes might be bad quality....but store credit is good though because you can get £5 free, cause ur paying the other fee of being a member....lets say something cost £10 ur paying half price! gd deal.....i ssay do it! but if u end up only finding a few things u like this month but not the next few months cancel ur membership those amazing things only come in shops a few times a year!

  20. Only if the £10's could be left to build up so that I didn't have to order every single month but wouldn't have 'wasted' £5 if I didn't.

  21. I wouldn't as you are only getting a £5 discount and also the fact is that you can't be 110% sure you would want to re-purchase from that place :o) xx

  22. I wouldn't pay. mostly because i know in the end i'd be in a loss. it might seem like a good deal, but i don't buy clothes often enough to actually benefit from this and plus i buy clothes from different stores, so this would definitely not be an option. plus i always try to stay away from such 'catch' things. they get money off of you every month, it doesn't mean you NEED the 10 pounds worth of stuff from them in return. just keep your money hon and if you really want something from them occasionally i believe it will be better value for money in the end

  23. seems like a good deal if you really like the brand, but i wouldn't pay it b/c i really need to save money right now. i don't need any encouragement to spend.

  24. I wouldn't. With paying £5 a month you're only really getting £5 for free. Being a poor student i just can't afford to tie myself in to monthly payments.
