7 Money-Saving, Holiday Shopping Tips
Make a list
Write down every single thing that you plan to buy this holiday season, no matter how small. Writing it down will help you get a better sense of exactly what you need, what it costs, and what is left over in your budget.
The early shopper catches the best deal! If you start now, you have time to wait for the right sale, manage your money better or search online for the perfect gift. If you leave it until the last week before Christmas, that’s going to force you to make rash purchases. Just make sure that you find a good hiding spot around the house for all of those early holiday purchases!
Do plenty of research
If you are uncertain just exactly what version of that new digital camera that you want to buy, be sure to do your research. By shopping on SHOP.COM, you have hundreds of partner stores at your fingertips. This allows you to price shop the items on your list. Check out our Gift Guides as well for the best-recommended places to shop for the must-have items of the season.
Get no-cost/low-cost holiday shipping
Last minute shoppers – here is a gift to you! Starting December 17th, many larger online retailers will offer free shipping with a guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve. Why we don’t recommend waiting this long, if there is something that you left off your list by mistake, take advantage of this option. Additionally, throughout the holiday season, many stores will offer reduced or free holiday shipping. Stay tuned for more information on free & reduced shipping options on SHOP.COM!
Shop smarter, not harder
