BRISTOL, UNITED KINGDOM - AUGUST 11: In this photo illustration a laptop displays the ASOS website on August 11, 2014 in Bristol, United Kingdom. This week marks the 20th anniversary of the first online sale. Since that sale - a copy of an album by the artist Sting - online retailing has grown to such an extent that it is now claimed that 95 percent of the UK population has shopped online and close to one in four deciding to shop online each week.

ASOS is known for it’s amazing collection of shoes, dresses and bang-on trend collections, which have made the online retailer one of the UK’s favourites. 

ASOS – which stands for As Seen On Screen – allows us to shop the must-have items of the season, and they’re also known for their amazing hacks. 

Earlier this year, it was revealed that ASOS have a secret back in stock page, where customers can find the pieces they just missed out on. 

And if that wasn’t enough, a new ASOS hack has recently been revealed – and this one can save you some serious money.

The hack – which involves switching countries and currencies on the website, allows shoppers to take a huge chunk out of their final total. 

And here’s how you do it…

Once you’ve found an item you like, click on the top right hand corner and select the United States as your county – the item will then display in dollars. 

Then, on the same drop down, select to show £GBP and you’re done! The price of the item should have made a big drop.

We tried it on a £330 dress by ASOS, which went to $ 429 when on the United States page, and then when we selected GBP, the price went down to £271.67 – that’s around a saving of £50.

However, the catch is that while you won’t be charged for shipping, you could potentially be charged customs charges. 

Other ASOS shoppers have been left shocked by the revelation, and can’t believe they didn’t spot it earlier. 

One fan took to Twitter, sharing: “Livid I didn’t know about the asos hack sooner.”

Another shared concern, commenting: “Am so scared ASOS will see everyone talking about that hack and change it so it doesn’t work.” 

Well, let’s keep our fingers crossed everyone.
