It’s now a little over a week until Christmas, and everywhere you look it’s “Sale”, “Clearance”, and “% off your order”. Almost every store seems to be having a huge sale where you can get great deals!
The big question is, should you buy now or wait until after Christmas? In the past, prices would go even lower after Christmas. Of course, this was when the economy was better. This year there have been great sales for a while already!
So, if there is something you want, should you buy it now or wait and hope prices will go down?
Well, it depends. If you are happy with the price it is at now, I’d say buy it. If you aren’t giving it as a gift or going to need to use it right away, keep it in the bag with the tags on it. Then, wait a week or two and see if the price goes down. If it does, most stores will adjust the price and give you back the difference. Make sure you look at their store policy before buying the item though, as different stores have different amounts of time you can adjust the price until.
My guess is that these prices aren’t going anywhere though. I have a feeling a lot of the stores will keep similar prices until the new year – but that’s just my guess. All I know is that I’m really enjoying being able to get the few items I want at a great discount!
We’re now into December, and the deals are nowhere from ending. In fact, there are just as many as there were the past month, and I don’t think that will change at all before the end of the month. Here are just a few of the deals that were in the newsletter earlier today.
- Now through December 7th, you’ll get 25% off a single item at the Sports Authority website.
- Now through December 21st, you can get balcony seats to see Spamalot in NYC for $20.00 each on Tues, Wed, Thurs, and Sunday nights when you use code SPBAL20.
- Talbots is having a friends & family event where you can get 30% off your entire order through December 7th both online (when you use code FRIENDS) or in store with the printout. Online you will also get free shipping when using the code.
- Through tomorrow, December 6th, you can get the Fantom GreenDrive 1TB USB 2.0 and eSATA External Hard Drive for $99.99 after a $30.00 mail in rebate. Shipping is free.
Today only, if you spend at least $100.00 at the Fortunoff website, you’ll automatically get 25% off your order total.
Considering that Fortunoff doesn’t often have discounts, that makes this already good deal even better! Once this one day event is over, you’ll be able to get free shipping if you spend at least $75.00, but obviously getting 25% off your total is a much better deal.
