So, you totally lost track of the days in December and you’re starting to panic since you haven’t even started to Christmas shop. (Guilty!) Fortunately, we’re not alone and many retailers are pulling through to give us one last chance at some serious savings. Here’s four ways to cash in on last minute deals:
1. Shop Green Monday 12/14: Green Monday is the third largest online shopping day of the year, only rivaled by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, on December 14th, make sure to browse your favorite retailer’s online stores to find price cuts on this year’s hottest gifts. You will be able to check some big ticket items off your gift list all while putting money back into your wallet. Basically, it’s Cyber Monday for procrastinators!
2. Free Shipping Day 12/18: This is it, your final deadline for online shopping if you wish to gift on December 25th. Celebrated 6 days before Christmas Eve, December 18th, most online retailers will offer free standard shipping that guarantees delivery by December 24th. Some e-tailers will offer free shipping or discounted express shipping all week, so be sure to combine Green Monday deals with these special shipping offers.
3. Promo Codes: You’re in a time crunch for holiday shopping and retailers are in a final push to hit their fourth quarter sales goals. What does this mean for you? Extra discounts! Make sure to check retailer’s social media pages, newsletters and site banners for potential extra savings that take dollars or percentages off your purchase. You may also find great savings on sites like RetailMeNot, Coupon Cabin and MyCoupons.
4. Buy Discount eCodes: If you already have a list of gifts you wish to buy, plan extra savings ahead of time by purchasing discount eCodes for online retailers. You can get up to an additional 30% off your order instantly! Since eCodes work like cash, you can combine them with Green Monday price cuts, free shipping offers and promo codes. While most discount gift card providers process eCode orders within a few hours, we suggest purchasing the eCode a day in advance as some orders may take longer to process.
Now that you’re heavily armed with all the savings tools you need, get shoppin’! This is your last chance to score big discounts from the comfort of your couch and avoid last minute shoppers at the mall.
