这里是网络孔子学院慢读新闻节目,来关注一条社会新闻。网上购物如今已经变成了潮流。坐在电脑前,只要轻点几下鼠标,不用花费太多时间,就能把心仪的东西买到手,对“上班族”和“宅男宅女”们来说,简直最方便不过了。不过,网购也要讲技巧,抓时机,你想知道什么时间是网购的最佳时机吗?

(一)新闻:网购最佳时机大揭秘

如果你以为周日上网购物能得到最实惠的价格,那你可要三思。根据一份对网上购物的详尽分析报告显示,如果你想买到便宜货(bargain),周二其实才是一周里网购最划算(be to one's profit)的一天。

这项调查结果是美国一家为零售商提供数据的服务机构提供的,他们调查了3000家公司和5亿笔交易,分析消费者在一周里每天得到的平均折扣(discount),以及在一年中不同时段得到的折扣。结果显示,一周中最适宜网购的一天是周二,能得到的折扣率为4.81%,其次是周四,得到的折扣率为4.8%。排在第三位的是周五4.65%,然后是周三的4.13%和周一的4.11%。只有傻瓜才会选择周六上网购物,因为这天物品的折扣率通常为3.84%,周日则是最糟——折扣率仅为3.37%。

按月份所作的分析结果更出乎人们的意料,因为大多数人认为要等到圣诞节后的特价甩卖才能得到最大的折扣。事实上,十一月份是人们购物最实惠的时候,平均折扣率为5.99%。其次是一月份,折扣率为4.95%,接着是五月份,折扣率为4.5%。

要想做个“超级消费者(consumer)”,这些时间你可要记牢。

Best time for Internet shopping

If you think that Internet shopping on a Sunday gets you the best deals, then think again. Tuesday is actually the best day of the week if you want to grab a bargain, according to an exhaustive analysis of on-line shopping.

US retailer reporting service SumAll examined 3,000 companies and half a billion transactions as part of its report. It worked out the average discount offered to consumers on each day of the week and over different times of the year.

The best day of the week was Tuesday where savings were 4.81 percent, followed by Thursday on 4.80 percent. In third place was Friday at 4.65 percent, then Wednesday at 4.13 percent and Monday at 4.11 percent.

Only the foolish would shop on a Saturday where the discounts were typically 3.84 percent - and Sunday was the worst with 3.37 percent.

The analysis by month is even more surprising as most people think that waiting until the post-Christmas sales would yield the biggest discounts.

In fact, November is when you will get the largest savings at 5.99 percent on average. January came in second at 4.95 percent, followed by May at 4.50 percent.

If you want to be a "Super Consumer", then remember these time by heart!
