Experts found that not giving enough time to shop for a better deal, being worn out for shopping, taking a shop assistant's recommendation, or pressure selling from staff were some of the reasons big bucks were shelled out, reports the Daily Telegraph.

RMIT University marketing expert Dr Con Stavros explained most people do not stick to particular companies or products and want no excuse to step into a mall.

Dr Stavros said: "We are much more promiscuous when it comes to brands."

The poll was carried out for online department store DealsDirect.com.au
