Don't let the date on the calendar fool you because as what many rearview mirror labels say, 'things may be further than they appear'... or something along those lines. Yes, the holidays are coming up and yes, it may not seem very near but in actuality you really have a little over a month left to get all your loved ones something for the upcoming holiday season. As you know, shopping itself just isn't for many people so you can imagine the stress around this season when the Christmas pandemonium begins and the craziness gets even craziness. But then again, thank God for online shopping, amirite? It gives me comfort of knowing that someone was smart enough to allow shoppers and non shoppers the privilege of being able to shop in the comfort of your own home.
So for those of you who want to skip the pandemonium this Christmas and save a few dollah dollah billz, here are a few online shopping hacks that you'll thank me for later (to which I say no problem in advance).
1. Download the Chrome extension 'Honey'.
Honey is a Chrome extension that finds discount codes, free shipping deals and promotions for thousands of online shops and applies them before you ‘add to basket’. It works by showing a little badge beside the price indicating whether or not you're seeing the best price possible. If not, it'll let you know and find whatever discount codes you need to save a few bucks.
2. Don't wait and start your shopping as early as November!
As I mentioned previously, Christmas is a whole lot closer than it may seem. And although many people tend to start later into December, according to Adobe's 2016 Shopping Predictions November is actually the best time to stock up under the tree. The 22nd is reportedly the best day to find the most online discounts on clothes, so make note of it on your planner ASAP. The reason being, retailers are wise to our panicky last minute sprees and less discounts are likely to be available.
3. Avoid shopping on Sundays and get to spending on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
And while shopping may be the best time in November, if you wanna stretch out your savings even more then try shopping on Tuesdays and Thursdays which are the best days to start spending and avoid shopping on Sundays which are the worst.
