What type of shopper are you?

So what type of shopper are you? Do you spend hours and hours just browsing round shops before you make a purchase – or do you pride yourself on being the fastest shopper in the city, getting in and out of the shop in less time Usain Bolt?

Which kind of shopper describes you?

The Bargain Hunter

Discount, Discount, Discount! The Bargain Hunter tracks down deals like a tabby cat hunting mice. In fact she’ll absolutely leave no stone unturned find the lowest price in town, the internet or even the galaxy.

The Expert

Google is her best friend. This shopper knows way more about her intended purchase than the store staff! She’s researched what she wants to buy, seen the reviews, watched the unboxing video’s on yotube and tracked down a friend of a friend who has one and has tried it out first hand.

The Impulse Buyer

Saw it, liked it, had a very brief internal dialogue about not needing another pair of shoes/not spending that much money (not too long you understand). Then bought it anyway. You only live once. Nuff said!

The Timid Shopper

This shopper really makes over-thinking an art! She went shopping for shoes, she needs shoes, but those are too expensive, those are slightly the wrong shade of blue, the ones she really likes are out of stock and so she agonises between the ones in this store or the ones in the last store. Generally will go back to the first ones she saw over an hour ago and buy those – or go home empty handed and regret not buying them for the rest of the week.

The Brand Shopper

If it isn’t a recognised brand – this shopper won’t even lower herself to even pick it up and take a look at it never mind take it to the till and get out her credit card. She generally shops at the same shops and wears the same brands. She still likes a deal on those brands – but she doesn’t buy unbranded anything darling!

The Rocket Shopper

This shopper has one goal… get in and out of the store in as little time as possible. This also involves not speaking to the store staff if at all possible unless locating the item is slowing her down from the ultimate goal of exiting in record time. She gets terribly irritated by browsers who simply clutter up the aisles. Get out of her way!

The Haggler

The Haggler simply thinks that the price on the shelf is a good starting point. What’s your best price, how much discount can I get if…, I’ve been a loyal customer here for years. She’ll employ a whole range of techniques to wrestle a discount out of store staff – and woe betide the poor till assistant if the garment has a small thread loose or a lipstick mark!

The Boomerang Shopper

The true Boomerang shopper LOVES shopping. She’ll have browsed every aisle like a honey bee browsing flowers – then she’ll stagger to the till laden with her huge horde of clothes. Where the wily shop assistant will ring through her enormous pile of purchases, charge her credit card and watch her stagger away with more store branded bags than is decent in the sure knowledge that the majority, if not all of these purchases will be back on the shelves before the week is out.

Whichever type of shopper you are… enjoy!

The dscvr app finds you real-time deals based on your location whether you’re shopping, eating or looking for something great to do – with no spam.

How to shop smart...

We all shop for the best deals, sales and discounts when shopping online right? So how happy are you when you find a time limited sale that gives you that sexy little number you’ve had your eye on for a fraction of the price? Brilliant!

Then you get it home and you look like a potato in it!

So you bundle it back up and head off to the post office or, guess what, the local store where you bought it from online to queue at the returns counter (again).

Then next week – you do it again…. and again….

and again (rinse and repeat…)

So imagine now that you had a cool little app that would tell you when your favourite retailers or restaurants had a promotion on (even one that lasts a day or a couple of hours). Imagine you popped down and tried on the same sexy little number (or it’s cute friend hanging next door) – it fitted great and you still walked out with the same discount as you’d got online.

That’s what we do at dscvr!

Tell us what you like, we’ll let you know when your favourite retailer has a promotion on and you save! Everyone wins – even the high street!

So use technology to support your local high street. Download the dscvr app today and start shopping more savvy.

Why Leeds is great for students

We think Leeds is one of the best cities in the county and THE best for students. No other place in the UK is able to offer so much within a short walking distance…

Nightlife

 Leeds’ nightlife is LEGENDARY!

We have more bars, clubs and restaurants than you can shake a stick at. We have something to suit every taste and preference. In to rock, dance, hip hop or funk? Leeds has a night out for you. Leeds city centre has over 180 pubs and bars, not including clubs and restaurants.

You can find live music at Church, Brudenell Social Club and the Belgrave Music Hall. While First Direct Arena and the O2 pulls in world famous acts. Small venues such as The Domino and Key Club offer a more intimate settings to showcase new talent.

The famous Otley Run is a must for any student starting at Woodies in Headingly all the way into Leeds city at the Dry Dock. 16 bars in total, making it a real challenge for any first years. If you want (and physically able) to continue the night you can head over to one of Leeds’ most famous nightclubs. You have plenty of choice with Mint, Warehouse and many others.

Experiences

Boring, is defiantly not a word to use when describing Leeds.

Leeds is the home to many festivals such as Live at Leeds, Thought Bubble and of course, Leeds Festival. As a huge tech city, you won’t be short on career opportunities with Leeds Digital Job Fair and Leeds Digital Festival every year.

Of course, there is lots to do at the weekend such as escape rooms, paintballing and crazy golf. Got your family visiting? No problem take them to Leeds Museum, the Royal Armouries or take them on grewsome historical tour of medicine at the Thackery Museum. If you are looking for a night of pure culture, the Northern Ballet and the Grand Theatre all offer discounts to students. Alternatively, Leeds Gallery is free to visit and is a brilliant place for a bit of creative inspiration. 

Location, Location, Location.

Leeds’ central location in the UK means that traveling anywhere doesn’t take very long. We 2 hours and 15 mins away from London and just under 3 hours to Edinburgh. If you fancy a weekend away, you can even hop on a plane to Dublin for as little as £30 each way!

As a Northern city, Leeds doesn’t suffer from the price hikes you can see in London and renting is significantly cheaper. Leeds has often been call the digital capitol of the North, with lots of huge businesses making the city their home. KMPG, Sky and now Channel 4 have their HQ in our fair city. There is so much opportunity here in Leeds to grow your career after graduating.
