5 Reasons You Need to Shop NOW for the Holidays
November 4, 2016
All the hype is always focused on Black Friday but a recent report shows that the deals are much better BEFORE Black Friday then over the traditional post Thanksgiving shopping days. Often, retailers use Black Friday to clear out as much merchandise as they can and create demand for popular items like toys and electronics. So that you are prepared to get the best deals possible, here are 5 reasons you need to shop now for the holidays.
1. Deals are already being offered
In case you've missed it, major retailers like Target, Macy's, and Walmart are already offering coupons and savings. The Target cartwheel
app is already offering coupons like 20% off some of the hottest toys of the season. Plus most of them are offering great shipping deals too. Don't underestimate these deals happening right now.
2. Some items are so hot, they'll be hard to find in 4 weeks
If you're child has their heart set on one of the hot toys for the year, you can't wait until mid-December to snag it. You'll either find that it is not going to go on sale again or that you simply can't find it. It's advised that you buy those types of must-haves now. Use coupons and cash back credit cards to off-set the price.
3. High end brands like Apple, don't go on sale on Black Friday
Have you ever noticed that the Black Friday deals don't ever feature really big names unless they are at discount or outlet type stores already. If there is an offer, the savings won't be nearly as good. If you have your heart set on a new iPhone, check other retailers that sell those products. Don't both heading to the Apple store
, you'll find that it's mainly people just trying to grab things before they go out of stock.
4. The hot toys are not going to be on sale
All those hot toys? They are on sale now. Don't see them on sale now? That means they are so hot that they will more than likely go on sale during pre-Black Friday events. It's a tricky little thing called supply and demand. Retailers want those toys to be in low numbers so you buy other things (usually that are more expensive) because you know someone has their heart set on it.
5. Online deals are live right now and they are great!
