(NO DATE) – Your budget may be tight this month, so Retailmenot.com is trying to help you save money.
RetailMeNot uses internal discount data to calculate the average discounts December shoppers can expect across popular categories.
The first category may surprise you, but it is beneficial for procrastinators. It is actually possible to save on Christmas gifts.
As the month progresses, retailers want to get rid of gift items so that they aren’t left on the shelves in January. If you are comfortable shopping in stores and flexible about what you want to give, you can find some discounted gifts if you wait until the last minute.
RetailMeNot said the main items to do business on are toys, board games, stockings, plush blankets, small countertop appliances, smart watches and smart home devices.
The next category is for people who appreciate the finer things in life. You can save up to 23% on designer clothes. Stores like Dillard’s, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, and NET-A-PORTER typically hold year-end sales events.
Third, the RetailMeNot team achieved savings of up to 27% on electronics. December is a good time to follow the prices of Amazon devices, smart watches or fitness trackers and gaming systems.
You can also find deals on health and beauty items, especially Christmas stockings like perfumes and gift boxes. Sephora, Ulta, and department stores should have some great deals on these items.
Finally, you can save up to 25% on food and entertainment. Keep a close eye on weekly flyers for savings on champagne, seasonal groceries and more.
Target offers a weekly advertisement of particular interest to savers. The retailer is known to offer free gift cards with certain grocery purchases.
It is also a great opportunity to purchase gift cards. Restaurants and retailers have deals where they throw away free $ 5 or $ 10 gift cards when you buy a gift certificate.
