How to Shop at Zara Online during Sale: Tricks and My Experience
Good news, Zara fans. Zara has started its sale on the 22nd of June. I am one of the big army of Zara fans, but unfortunately I don’t have a store in my city. I shop online, which I’ve done many times. I want to share my strategy with you.
First of all, I rarely buy anything for the full price. I buy an item only if I really need it. Otherwise, I always know that those things will be 30-50 % cheaper at the end of a season, when I can buy them online on sale.
This strategy may have its downsides. For example, last fall I was obsessed with a skirt. I spotted it in late August and was patiently waiting for it to be on sale. But the skirt was sold out in October and never appeared back on their website.

Secondly, in the beginning the discount in Zara is usually 20-30%. They may have 50%, but it’s rare. In two or three weeks, they reduce the prices more. And after another two or three weeks, they may have a drop in price up to 70%. In the end, there is not a lot left on sale.
Thirdly, Zara has sales twice a year: after December 20 and after June 20. On the website they start selling clothes with discounts at 12:00 AM ET. Zara may have discounts during Black Friday in November. Last year it was 30%.
Finally, if you want to buy something, don’t wait. Get it right away as things go fast. If Zara has run out of an item, don’t worry: it may have it back in stock soon. Keep watching the website as often as you can. I do it every 20-40 minutes if I have time. You may even save a link to you favorite item so that it’s easier to find it.

There was a dress which I fell in love with in May. I decided to wait until the sale. It seemed that Zara had a low quantity of the dresses, and it ran out of them before the sale. I kept watching this dress every day, and—hooray!—I got it! I was in class and was checking Zara’s site from my phone. I saw my size and grabbed it. It turned out that Zara had just one item of my size.
What to Buy on Sale in Zara
Zara has good jackets and coats, and usually they are pricey. But they become more affordable on sale. I like a flowing coat and blue jacket. A navy blue coat is also a good piece to add to one’s wardrobe. It has a good range of genuine leather jackets. Currently, they are 50% off.
This season, they are selling many beautiful blouses and shirts. I like one with a flower print that is made of viscose.
If you want a good and cheap purse, you may find it in Zara. I own a faux leather bag, and its quality is pretty good.
I recommend that you keep your eyes open since new items may appear on sale at some point. Happy shopping in Zara!
