Do you have BMT? Big Match Temperament is that special quality that lets sports stars remain calm in that match point moment. It’s also that magic something that keeps you feeling easy-breezy when it’s one of the biggest shopping sales of the year and you know you’re competing against thousands for that pair of sneakers. With The Big Sale at in full swing until 10 July, now’s the time to work on your BMT and bag those autumn/ winter must-haves before they’re gone.

Melanie van der Merwe, Head of Brand at says, “This is Superbalist’s biggest end of season sale to date. We love our customers and so we’re offering serious discounts of up to 50% and more on homeware and fashion for women, men and kids from over 200 top brands for a whole month. This is the opportunity to replenish a tired wardrobe with staples and snag that last pair of Nike sneakers you’ve been eyeing for a fraction of the price. Do fashion your way this winter!”

Whether you are stocking up on essentials, bagging your favourite brands or refreshing your workwear wardrobe, here’s how to maximise the opportunity and use sale season to win at your winter wardrobe:

  1. Give before you get: There’s something cathartic about going through a wardrobe and identifying things that no longer bring you joy.  Gift things to friends and donate other good quality items to charity. That way, you get rid of the old to make way for the new.
  2. Make a note of what you need: Make smart investments by stocking up on wardrobe staples and everyday homeware. Be very discerning and create a list of exactly what you need to make your winter wardrobe shine. Jot down the must-have items, then add a dusting of ‘nice-to-have’ limited-edition or investment pieces to lift specific looks. Set a budget and write it down. Focus on versatile items that can be worn throughout the year.
  3. Create a wishlist: This is the number one tip for savvy shoppers. Create a wishlist in advance so you have time to think about which pieces you want. During sale month, hop to your wishlist and see if items are discounted and by how much. This allows for maximal efficiency – and for you to get there first, potentially, on the most-in-demand options.
  4. Download the app: Download the Superbalist app to be the first to learn about showstopping flash sales and bundle deals.
  5. Follow the socials: Follow the different social channels for up-to-date information on what the sale will entail, new developments, plus key pieces to look forward to.
  6. Check the return Ts and Cs: It’s always a good idea to be clued up on Ts and Cs. Make sure you know what the allowed return period is for the items you buy.
  7. Shop by size: Browsing through 7 000 + items on sale could end up costing you your weekend. Instead, filter by size to snag the items available in your size in no time. 
  8. Bag the brands: With over 200 brands on sale on Superbalist, it pays to know which ones to look out for. Whether you’re earmarking a Fossil timepiece or a new addition to your sneaker shelf, know the brands you love so you can hunt accordingly.
  9. Try ‘click and collect’: This shipping option lets you collect your order when it suits you from your nearest, most convenient pickup point.

In tricky economic times, sales can be a way to treat yourself to something new or bag those investment pieces, without breaking the bank. Set the budget, stick to it, and have fun!
