Bargain finds off the beaten track

My golden rule for hunting for deals is just that - you need to get into the hunt to find some really good bargain offers.
Watch out for the cookie jar to the left of the Aeropostale's counter at Mirdif City Centre. This is where they've stashed their fashion watches on sale for half the price. This giant watch (which is bizarrely in fashion now) is only Dh60.
If you're looking for something cheaper, check out Emax in the electronics wing--of all places. You can grab an Air Watch (below) for Dh20. There's a whole box of these simple but cool, candy coloured watches along the isle where they have USBs and flash drives on sale.
At Hour Choice in Oasis Centre, for a minimum purchase of Dh500, you get half the price back in a gift voucher that you can use in your next visit. I don't know about you but it sounds like a perfect excuse for a mall rat itching to keep on coming back to the mall.
I have my eye on the Nautica chronograph watch with blue strap (above) for Dh945, which means that if I buy it, I can use the Dh472 voucher to buy the yellow one for only Dh272.50 (original price is Dh745) the next time around.
Rivoli and Eyezone are also running the same promotion. Oprah would be happy to know that Philip Stein watches are included in the offer. You'll get about Dh6,007 in "cash back" voucher for this signature collection watch below.
