National Savings Day
As business owners, we know you understand the importance of staying on top of your finances, and at Christies Direct we offer a number of ways for you to save money and keep cash flowing in your business.
Paw Points - Every time you shop with us you earn Paw Points which can be redeemed against wish list items. Some of our customers save these for a long time in order to get higher ticket items like clippers, scissors, and even tables! Other customers spend them more regularly to save some money on their salon essentials each month.
If you would like to treat yourself with your points have a look at our Points Spend catalogue on the website.

Val had been saving up her points to spend on something really worthwhile and had her eye on theVal spent 3471 points on these scissors by paying with Paw points saved £119!

She was able to invest in some great equipment for her business and save £362.90! Tara is also enjoying perks as a Top Dog as part of our Pawsh Perks Loyalty Scheme.
Paw Points have been around for a while, but earlier this year we launched a new loyalty scheme - Pawsh Perks. We wanted to reward our loyal customers and take our Paw Points to another level. Our tiered loyalty scheme rewards customers with a whole host of perks including free gifts, access to limited edition products, early access to sales, Prize draws and more. As a Pampered Pooch you will also save 5% on all your orders and when you reach our highest tier, Top Dog, you will get 10% off every order. This will make a massive difference to your monthly salon spend!
Heading into 2021 we are excited about our Pawsh Perks plans to further support our customers and their businesses.
Invest in the right equipment
If you are starting out and have a lot of equipment and stock to purchase at one time, it can be easy to fall into the trap of trying to spend as little as possible, but investing in your tools will not only give better results but can also save you money and time. Our customer care team are happy to answer your questions and give you information on any of our products so that you can make an informed decision on your purchases. Check out our blog posts on Investing in your Tools and Where not to Cut Costs.
It’s also important to invest time for equipment maintenance and cleaning and in training yourself and your staff on the proper use of tools to save you money on repair and replacement costs.
We understand how important cash flow is to you as business owners so this year we have partnered with Klarna to help you spread the cost of your grooming supplies and equipment. For those larger items you might want to splice the cost into 3 monthly payments. Or if you find you need something in a rush you can purchase now with no interest and no fees, then pay in 30 days.
