Tips for smart back-to-school shopping

15 Sep 2023

It's that time of the year again! The summer holidays are almost over, and the kids will soon be heading back to school. For some, it's the 'big step up' to high school. For others, it's their first day in a new environment, so they want to look their best and make a good impression. Or maybe your children are planning to make the next transition to college or university.

This is your chance to head to the mall with your SHARE Rewards app and make the most of some serious back-to-school supplies shopping. So how can you turn a shopping trip into a truly rewarding experience? Here are a few top tips from SHARE Rewards.  

Make it fun

Back-to-school shopping is a chance for the whole family to enjoy a day out at the mall. But don’t just focus on buying school uniforms. With SHARE Rewards you can buy all your back-to-school need from stationary, to clothing, accessories and more. And then use your SHARE Rewards to take the kids to a movie at VOX Cinemas, enjoy an afternoon of gaming fun at Magic Planet, or treat the whole family to a meal. The more you spend, the more points you earn and the more you can redeem and reward yourself and your family. 

Have a budget

It's super-easy for your back-to-school shopping trip to spiral out of control. But that’s okay, because SHARE Rewards and fantastic Back-To-School deals from brands such as Carrefour make it easier and more cost effective to buy everything from pens and lunch bags to sports kits, shoes and clothes.  If you're shopping for back-to-school clothes, stationery, and other items, have a plan and have a budget in mind. With SHARE Rewards, you can always cash in some or all of your Rewards for a few little treats without breaking the bank, and to pay for all those little extras you didn’t realise they needed! 

You’ll get plenty of exclusive SHARE Rewards offers that’ll stretch the budget even further and of course, every time you use your SHARE App you can use those Rewards on everyday essentials too.    

Get moving with Carasti

If you need to drop the kids off to school, or reward your child entering college, you don’t need to go out and buy a new car. Carasti allows you benefit of their all-inclusive car subscription options where you can lease a brand new car in the UAE for an affordable price every month. Their flexi options let you start slow with a single month’s lease, and take out additional leases as your needs change. There’s a car for everyone, from electrical vehicles (EVs) to SUVs. And the best bit? If you’re a SHARE Rewards member and you link your SHARE app to your Carasti app, you can convert your points and use them towards your monthly fees, making motoring even cheaper and more convenient.   You’ll also earn cashback rewards with 15% on the first month’s lease and up to 4% every month after. Now that’s how you get motoring in the UAE!
