Holiday Shopping tips and tricks

I would like to wish everyone a healthy, happy, and harmonious Thanksgiving! As with the kick off of the holiday season comes shopping and more shopping. I have a few tips and tricks to keep you on track with your holiday shopping spending.

 

  1. Go to sites like that have all the Black Friday flyers in one place. I like to use Ebates because I can get the coupon codes and get cash back for in-store purchases and online purchases.
  2. Make a budget and list and stick to it. This is probably the most important thing to keep in mind. You don’t want to rack up debt you can’t pay off.
  3. Research what you are looking to buy to ensure you get the best sale price. I like to use apps like Flipp so I do an easy price comparison. Online I like doing a simple google search on the shopping section then flittering from low to high.
  4. If shopping online be sure to get cash back from sites like Ebates or TopCashBack plus as an added perk many sites are offering double/triple cash back rates.
  5. If shopping in-store take advantage of in-store cash back and also be sure to search for in store coupons and clip beforehand.
  6. Use your credit card as many offer price protection.
  7. If you don’t want to be bothered with tracking prices changes I suggest getting earny. Earny can monitor them for you for select retailers.
  8. Get gift receipts always- this makes it so much easier for the gift recipient to return the gift if needed.
  9. When in doubt give cash or gift cards.  Be sure to check out discount gifts to score a great deal on gift cards. Read more about snagging discount gift cards here.
  10. Lastly, please read my article on tips for having a stress free holiday season here.

I am pretty much-done shopping but there are a few deals I am looking to forward this Black Friday:

 

  1. CVS-  perfume gift sets that are normally $24.99 will be on sale for just $12.99 plus the rebates apps like ibotta are offering $2.00 cash back for each one purchased.

 

2. Macy’s- Samsonite luggage will be 60-75% off- plus save 20% off Black Friday with code HURRY. Shop now at Macys.com! Valid 11/22 through 11/25. I just ordered the Samsonite Spin Tech 2.0 25″ Hardside Spinner Suitcase, for only 108.79 from 320.00!

 

3. New York & Company– I love these pull-on pants I have a few already and just love how comfy get professional they look. I have NYC rewards to use and will be adding at least 1 pair of these.

 

4. Overstock– I am looking at updating my master bath and just love this chandelier flush mount.

 

5. Ulta– I am in the market for a new curling iron. I love the hot tools brand and with 50% off you can’t go wrong. Plus you can use coupons.
