As we near the end of July, there's reason to smile for all of us. After all, who doesn't like a good bargain? That's what's in store, literally, as many of the popular e-commerce outlets will be having mega online sales.

Finally, after weeks and months of curating a wishlist of desirable items, you can look forward to actually buying some of them during the many discount sales that will be running.

Of course, for those of you who might not have a wishlist ready but don't want to miss out on a good deal either, fret not. We have put together a small but practical list of things that you're likely to consider purchasing at some point in the not too distant future anyway. Be it the Amazon sale, Nykaa sale, or any other sale of your choice, you're sure to find these items at a discount price:

Power bank

For better or worse, our mobile phones have almost become as essential today as the clothes we wear. You probably cannot imagine stepping out of the house without your mobile in your pocket. What used to be a simple calling device has now become indispensable to the smooth functioning of our work, relationships, and even leisure.

All that use leads to quick depletion of the phone's battery, however. How often have you found yourself freaking out about running out of juice at inopportune moments? Not to mention how inconvenient some charging locations can be while outside your home. That's why we recommend considering a decent fast-charging power bank. It's one of the most popular items during any sale and you're sure to find a solid deal. You can carry it in your bag wherever you go and rest assured that you won't run out of power when you need it the most.

With the second wave of the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic beginning to recede, gymnasiums across the country are opening up again. However, with the on-again, off-again nature of the lockdowns and restrictions, an expensive gym membership might not be of much use until things settle down for good.

But you can't put a pause on your daily exercise. If you're afraid to step out for a daily walk, you could consider buying an affordable home workout kit. And nothing's more basic than a pair of dumbbells. They are quite affordable if you look around a bit, and during a sale, you're sure to find a good deal.

Formal clothes

Sure, formal clothes might not be the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about shopping during a sale! Usually, we're more focused on the 'fun' and 'snazzy' things. However, being responsible and mature adults, we're often forced to set aside our hard-earned money for more important things in life and wait for a sale instead.

But here's the thing; the next time you go for a job interview, you'll be glad you spent on some good formal wear. Not to mention, having a fuller formal wardrobe will also reflect well on you and your work at the workplace. And at the end of the day, what's good for your career is usually good for your bank balance that will fund your purchases during a sale!

Cheap earphones and earbuds

Like most young people these days, you likely enjoy listening to your favourite tunes on the go. And if not the latest hit songs, many love to soak in information about their favourite topics by listening to podcasts.

It's nearly impossible to spot college students or young professionals without some kind of listening apparatus on their person, be it headphones wrapped over their heads or earbuds plugged into their ears. 

After being subjected to such frequent use and travel, a sale is a good time to consider going for an upgrade. You'll find solid deals on some of the best budget earbuds. Particularly during the Amazon upcoming sale, you'll find limited-time discounts that are an absolute steal. So much so that you could even consider going a grade higher instead of restricting yourself to cheap earphones.

Why use mPokket during the July sale? 

During a sale, finding the best deals is a task unto itself. However, sometimes, there are limited-time discounts or flash sales that only last for a few hours or less. Adding to the tension, these deals are often limited by stock availability or percentage claimed.

In such situations, a quick and timely cash infusion could prove very helpful. At mPokket, the 'instant' in instant loan is a very real thing. From applying for a loan to completion of direct cash transfer to your bank or Paytm Account is done within 10 minutes, leaving you with enough breathing space to complete your purchase.

Also, If you are seeking an instant student loan or salaried loan and wondering where to turn for obtaining loans online, simply download the app, register by uploading a handful of documents, and post-approval, borrow instant personal loans of up to Rs. 45,000! mPokket instant loans for students online and loans for salaried are credited straight to your bank.

So don't wait, add mPokket to your arsenal and get ready to gun for some great deals!
