9 Things To Do Differently This Diwali!

With Diwali almost round the corner and lots of excitement among folks, are you still engrossed in thinking when to clean your home, what to wear this festival, what gifts to give, where to go and how to get ready for all the upcoming parties? If yes, then my friend, you need to press the refresh button and make this bright Diwali even brighter. 

Remember how our lovely moms used to get all pumped up thinking about Diwali? How they used to do everything by themselves and still make everyone smile by making lip-smacking dishes, buying us new clothes and giving gifts full of love and good wishes to our relatives and friends? But now when we are away from home and have bills to pay and a thousand things in between, we fail at doing those things that were taught to us about this auspicious and much-awaited festival of the year. When work becomes home, organizations are no longer behind in giving employees their token of love and appreciation by providing various corporate discounts. 

Let us take you through a checklist of 9 tasks that you can do this Diwali and still save a lot of money everywhere using the amazing employee perks and special offers.

1) Clear the clutter: Diwali is the perfect time to bring new stuff in. But you also have to balance it by clearing the clutter out so that you have enough space to fit in the new. Cleaning the entire house could be a bit of a hassle so you can take help from online platforms that provide services like house cleaning, painting etc.

How Advantage Club can help: Partners like Favorz on the app can provide really great cleaning services to get you sorted for the big festival.

2) Be your own interior designer: Once you have cleaned your home and it is all shiny and twinkly inside out, start decorating it. Use glittering fairy lights that come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. To create a pleasant ambience, you must add fragrance candles and handmade paper lanterns. Do not forget to spread light by placing diyas of different and beautiful designs. 

How Advantage Club can help: Avail the additional off on Home Center, Pepper Fry and many more. 

3) Mithai: How incomplete Diwali is going to be without mithais! When you spread light and sweetness at the same time, Diwali feels like home. While making sweets at home will be troublesome, you still have the option of ordering them online and gifting them to friends. There are readymade packages too that are available at every sweetshop for different occasions and festivals. 

        How Advantage Club can help: Offers across Mishth and Sweet truth will be one of the best help you will get.

4) Gift hampers and gift vouchers: We all have picky friends and relatives, don't we? What to gift those who don't like sweets or are diabetic? You can pick assorted items as gifts and make customized gift hampers for your special ones. These hampers can include personal care products, namkeens, healthy home-made cookies, etc. 
How Advantage Club can help: Avail all the gift vouchers and discount coupons on the app from lifestyle, Big Basket, Mishth and Faasos, etc.

5) Do a little cardio, go out for shopping: Most of the anticipation for Diwali is about having an official reason to shop. Go ethnic, go bold. Shop to slay the traditional way. Buy that Indo-western wear you were thinking of and redefine fashion, breaking the stereotypes.
How Advantage Club can help: Take advantage of the online giants too like Flipkart, Amazon, Indya, Ajio, etc. and take home the additional off at every purchase.  
6) Give the gift of wellness: While we will be gifting to friends and relatives who are good and well, we also have some people who need extra attention, care and time due to being unwell for any reason. To such special ones, give the gift of wellness. It can be anything related to discount vouchers on lab tests, OPD services and extra discounts on medicines. There are special discounts on yoga classes as well, so those who are trying hard to live a healthy lifestyle, you can get them started with it. 

How Advantage Club can help: Discounts and offers across Medlife, 1 mg, Apollo Pharmacy, Max Healthcare, etc. Name it and you have it all.

7) Dining: Food is what we all live by. You can gear up the excitement for this Diwali by exploring new restaurants in your town offering cuisines and drinks that are hard to resist and superb in taste. If you party too much and are tired of going out, you can go ahead and order the food online taking advantage of additional discounts across various restaurants. 

How Advantage Club can help: Curated offers at Barbeque Nation, AMPM Cafe & Bar and many more near your locations. Pick one, and get set go.

8) Beauty and Salon: With the daily stress and the restlessness of the approaching festival, do not forget to take some time out and pamper yourself. Avail all the benefits of salon services in your town, relax and rejuvenate. This Diwali, glow and be the bright lamp of your own home. 

 How Advantage Club can help: Don't forget to shop from Nyka, Shoppers Stop, Lifestyle and not to mention the giants; Flipkart and Amazon and save a little extra.

9) Finance: Invest some of your ‘Lakshmi’ in gold or any other thing you want to. Find numerous platforms available on the app offering higher interest rates. You can also apply for loans to buy a house and other high-end appliances this Diwali. 

How Advantage Club can help: You can always turn towards Bajaj Finserv, PNB Housing Finance and other such brands that offer no-cost EMIs too.
