As soothing or cathartic as retail therapy can be, our bank account after shopping not so soothing lah. ? If you’re in the same boat as we are (we’re human beings too!), then you probably agree it’s time to potong our shopping expenses!

Here are five super simple yet effective ways to be more responsible shoppers.


1. Unsubscribe from e-mailing lists/newsletters

Aeonplat Mailing Lists

As enticing as member-exclusive deals can be, mailing lists and newsletters actually tend to make us shop more than needed, especially when we get a SUPER exclusive voucher that NEEDS to be used in less than 24 hours.


2. Unfollow favourite brands/shops on social media

Similar to the above, seeing our favourite brands or shops frequently sharing updates on their products doesn’t help with our FOMO. ? In these two cases, ignorance truly is bliss for both our well-being and bank account.


3. Ask yourself: Do you WANT or NEED the instalment?

Aeonplat Instalment Min

Though instalments are a good way to stretch your money, you might end up biting more than you can chew and hurt your monthly expenses in the long run (if you overspend). If you can’t afford your purchase at the time, it’s best to avoid instalment plans; and even if you’re able to, make sure to keep track of them so that you don’t accumulate debt and go overboard ya?


4. Keep track of bills and your bank account frequently

Aeonplat Check

Giving ourselves the “reality check” often actually compels us to double back on impulsive purchases. After all, who wants to enjoy survive on instant noodles to compensate for our super unnecessary buys? ?


5. Pay off your credit card debts ASAP!

Say ‘No’ to having outstanding credit card debts! By paying off your debts immediately after shopping, you’ll be more aware of how much you’ve been shopping, which in turn makes you more wary of impulsive purchases in the future~

However, shopping is still a necessity in our daily lives (not the luxurious kind ah!), so another way to shop responsibly is to spend with a credit card that gifts you rewards for shopping. As it so happens, we recently discovered a credit card that does exactly that, on top of ALL your spendingit’s that simple!


Ever Connected, Ever Rewarding

Presenting the AEON Platinum Credit Card, equipped with super rewarding perks like up to 4x AEON points with every RM1 spent, up to 10% cashback, and up to RM1 million in travel insurance!
