    Hey guys! Well I wanna buy something from ASOS but it's a jacket that's abit expensive. :/

    I've got enough money to buy it but when it comes home (my parents are gna be the first ones to open it because they're nosey), in other words I'm gna be screwed at for spending 'so much' money.:mad: ....... and I cba for that.

    Is there any solution to this so that my parents don't find out how much I paid. Is the invoice always shown?:confused:

    Or you could just tell them you got it for half price, and that obviously since its been shipped to you, it wont have the words 'HALF PRICE' stuck all over it in tacky red paper.

    well, it s your money so you get to choose how you spend it. My parents used to be a bit like that until they realised that I when I bought something really expensive, I got good use out of it and really liked it and never actually needed to borrow money off of them. Just do it and prove to them in the long run that you are sensibe with money.

    The price isn't written on the invoice plus its wrapped up so they can't see anything anyway.

    So they won't see the price at all?
    There must be some sort of paper showing the price in the package right?:confused:

    Why dont you throw the invoice you get and remove the price tag from the jacket when you get back home ? Tell your parents it was at a cheap price or else tell them that a friend or someone gifted it to you...

    I have done this like a million times...it works !

    Tell them that someone bought it for you as a present - you should be able to write a gift message or something on the invoice

    Would laugh if you bought it and the Royal Mail postman decided to nick your package, wouldn't be surprised this time of the year if that happens

    Your parents open packages that are addressed to you? I'd address that issue first, then think about buying an expensive jacket later, you have bigger fish to fry

    Just checked the invoice from the last thing I bought and am 100% sure there is no price on the invoice.
