The economic climate is grim, this much we know. Whilst the Great British high street is suffering, paradoxically, luxury fashion retailers are booming (the 1% still have cash to burn, obvs) but there is a savvy way of spending online and monitoring your itchy-trigger finger clicking the checkout button. Ukash the global e-money network is thriving - especially their Ukash gaming card which avid geek-boys top-up to get their gaming thrills whilst managing a budget.
With Ukash you physically exchange cash for a voucher with a code to be entered at the checkouts of participating online retailers: thus remaining in control of precisely what you want to limit yourself to spend.
"The research shows that it’s far from game over for cash and we are seeing demand from publishers and gamers for alternative payments. Paying with Ukash enables players to stay in control of their budgets and game safely online,” says Ukash CEO David Hunter.
Could this successful methodology be extrapolated into the fashion arena? We all know how easy it is to go wild in the digital aisles at ASOS once they have your card details stored only to recoil in horror when your monthly bank statement plops on the doormat and your overspending hits home. Want to stick to a budget of £100 on clothes? We think a Ukash Fashion Card could be an ideal solution to curb frivolous spending.
