Best Ways to Save Money on Holiday Shopping


We hope that all of you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday, showing gratitude to both your family, co-workers, and employees for all of the positive events and outcomes from this past year. Even though we hate taking away from such a great holiday, it’s conclusion marks the beginning of one of the most stressful times of the year. It’s now when parents act more like children and chaos ensues. Hopefully there won’t be any deaths this year from being trampled on or because of disagreements. While we hope individuals will be civil, you need to be ready for plenty of tug-of-war matches, sprinting, and lunging for what you need. It’s always a good idea to know your targets before you go so you don’t waste time looking around.

As you are trying to find a way to save money on holiday shopping, this weekend provides you with some of the best opportunities. You don’t just have Black Friday to save anymore, as other opportunities have emerged over the last few years. Take a look below to see how you can save money this holiday season.

Black Friday – At this point, everyone knows what Black Friday is and what it entails. Stores will open in the wee hours of the morning, offering some of the most ridiculous discounts and incentives to those who come in during the early hours. Even after, major chains will offer some of the best sales you will ever witness only on this day. You even have huge companies like Apple actually offering incentives. Our advice, stick to malls and large chains on Black Friday. Go to areas where you can spend more time shopping and less time driving or waiting for parking spots.

Small Business Saturday – An area that always used to be overlooked during these major holiday sales were the independent businesses. That is, until American Express created a campaign to drive more traffic to small business owners a few years back. Following Black Friday, small businesses were given the opportunity to have their own type of Black Friday sales, gaining better results each year. This year alone had Small Business Saturday awareness campaigns beginning in mid-October, to help people realize other ways to save money on holiday shopping this year. Our advice, head to towns that have “Main Streets” lined with small businesses. That way you can park, explore the town, and save money on well made quality products and gifts.

Cyber Monday – One of the last ways to save money on holiday shopping without even leaving your house. As online shopping becomes more prevalent each year, more online businesses and websites offer incentives and promotions. They too, now have their own day, beginning at midnight on Monday. Working in a similar fashion as Black Friday online shopping sites like Amazon will offer phenomenal deals in the early hours, and continue to offer great savings throughout the rest of the day. Our advice, for those hard to find products, niche gifts, and items you don’t want to wait in line for Cyber Monday shopping can be your perfect solution.

So now that you have an idea of the many different ways to save money on holiday shopping this year, it’s time to make a plan! What stores will you hit each day, and how will you take advantage of these great deals? Don’t wait too long though and be sure to get your rest while you can!
