Worried that it can get expensive? Here are some tips and tricks on how to find the best holiday electronics deals this holiday season and save some money.
Not wanting to brave the crowds at your local mall? Neither do I. Amazon has deals through the entire holiday season so even if you don't find something right now, there will be another deal tomorrow. Look at the Today's Deals section for the deeply discounted items and holiday electronics deals.
Never bought something on eBay before? No worries! It's free to set up an account and takes two minutes before you are checking out things to buy. Look for items that are new in the box or new with tags (NWT). A lot of companies are starting to sell their goods at a slight discount with free shipping on eBay. The very best holiday electronics deals will go quickly, so if you see something you should bid on it or select the "Buy It Now" option.
Best Days To Shop
Mondays are great for computers and electronics. Every major retailer wants to start the week off strong and put the large ticket items in their ads, starting with their most aggressive holiday electronics deals. On Sundays, major home appliances such as washer and dryers. Apparel sites tend to have slightly higher discounts on weekends due to higher website traffic.
Can you handle the stress of last minute shopping? If so, December 21st-24th are some of the best days to find deep discounts. Stores are trying to clear their inventory and are willing to lower prices in order to do so. However, be aware that shipping during these days is very expensive so stick to in-store purchases for the very best holiday electronics deals.
Take advantage of the free shipping deals whenever you can by purchasing multiple gifts from the same websites. Most retailers offer free shipping and will guarantee delivery before the holidays if you order by mid-December. This can save you quite a bit of money by the time all of your shopping is done.
Do you receive emails from your favorite stores? While no one likes junk mail, there's something to be said for exclusive discounts. Most retailers encourage their customers to sign up for their emails to receive exclusive discounts. Why not take advantage? It's free!
Medical Alert for the Holiday
A lot of our clients will offer to get a Medical Care Alert system as someone's gift, as this makes it easier for the senior to accept it. We don't necessarily think its a good surprise gift under the tree....but when a senior doesn't want you to spend your money on them for a medical alert system, offering to get it as a gift will usually make it easier for them to say "OK".
