eBay research reveals that nearly a third of Brits say a bargain boosts their mood with 25% even comparing the feeling to eating chocolate. We get a real mood booster when we find a bargain with over a third saying that that it lifts our spirits more than exercise, and nearly 1 in 5 saying it lifted their spirits more than a holiday. We don’t want to share however – almost a quarter admit that they would never tell someone they found a sale or steal, with 1 in 10 wanting to keep the bargain for themselves so eBay are aiming to make it easy for everyone to find a superb deal.
Beyond a good price, an item is considered a bargain by nearly a quarter of the UK if it’s on sale from an exclusive designer. And data from eBay has confirmed that we are a brand-loving nation, with 32% more searches for brands such as Michael Kors, Ted Baker and Hugo Boss post-lockdown, compared to pre-lockdown.
Female respondents said that lockdown has led them to hunt for more bargains than ever. When it comes to which items men and women are shopping for most, there are also some key differences; when looking for a bargain women (73%) search for clothes, 20% more than men (53%), however when it comes to gadgets, men (49%) search 12% more than women (37%) and only 15% of men look for a bargain on jewellery.
