Where to Shop for the Best Holiday Bargains Online and in Store

As we move into the busiest part of the holiday season, you’ll hear a constant countdown: How many days left until Christmas? Whether you started shopping super early or you haven’t even thought about what to buy everyone yet, it’s helpful to know where you can get the best holiday bargains online and in stores. Here’s a list of where to shop this year. 

Amazon: Amazing Online Deals

While amazon.com is well known for their great prices at all times of the year, they’re going all out for the holiday season this year. Deals start early, and Amazon is stretching out the savings through the month of December. 

Some of the notable deals this year include Kindle Fire tablets for as much as $50 off (depending on model), Fire TV Sticks with Alexa voice remote for up to half off, and Echo Dots for up to $20 off. They’re also offering some deep discounts on everything from toys to beauty products, so this may be the ideal time to browse the Amazon site with your holiday shopping list in hand. 

Amazon traditionally stocks plenty of items to meet demand — after all, they’re well established in the world of online holiday shopping. However, it doesn’t hurt to get on the site now to take advantage of the deals while there are still plenty available. Amazon is also fond of surprise deals, so you’ll find something new and interesting nearly every day until Christmas.

Wal-Mart: Amazing Holiday Shopping Deals

Wal-Mart is widely regarded as the king of the holiday shopping stores, mainly because they offer some of the deepest discounts on major electronics. This year, those major discounts run through December, or until supply is exhausted.

Some of the most notable deals this year include 50 inch 4D televisions for as low as $179.99, and smaller televisions for even less. If you’re looking for a reliable tablet for a cheap price, you might like the RCA Voyager. This tablet comes complete with a keyboard case for just $49.98. There are also great deals available on cell phones this December at Wal-Mart. The 32GB iPhone 6 is now on sale for $149!

The Wal-Mart deals are available both online and in stores. If you’re shopping in the store, try to be there soon to make sure you get in on the deals. If you’re shopping online, look for the free two-day shipping offer to make it even more convenient. 

Other Retailers to Look For

Nearly every retailer is getting in on the holiday fun this year. Clothing stores like Kohl’s are offering cash back for your purchases as always — and during December they even allow you to pick up online orders in the store within two hours. 

Whether you’re shopping like it’s a sport or only shopping for the bare minimum amount of time, you’ll be able to enjoy the process much more when you plan ahead. Enjoy your holiday shopping season, and remember to get in some relaxation with family and friends after all the shopping fun.
