Long lines, crowds, crazy people – these are just some of the things you’ll find at your local store on Black Friday. It’s your day off – why do you want to spend it getting up at 3 a.m. to fight over TVs and toys? Why not sleep in and delay your shopping for a few days?
Trust us, it won’t be the end of the world if you miss Black Friday. That’s because more and more retailers are having sales on Cyber Monday – the Monday after Thanksgiving. Cyber Monday deals are typically online, although you might find some in-store specials. Cyber Monday, as you may have noticed, is no longer a one-day affair. Retailers' have been having "extended" Cyber Monday sales year over year so even if you happen to miss shopping on Cyber Monday, you still have the rest of cyber week to shop.
So this year, if you've missed a few offers over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, don't even sweat it. There are a few more major shopping days coming up and retailers' will not be skimping out on discounts as busy holiday shoppers finish up their Christmas shopping list. Keep your calendar marked for Green Monday, Free Shipping Day, and Super Saturday. Take a look at a short list below for ways you can save on these popular shopping categories any day of the year.
Deals on electronics will be plentiful on Cyber Monday. If you enjoy shopping online, eBay is a great place to score some deals on TVs, watches, drones and more. Ebay generally display their hottest offers on the homepage but to explore all their savings, you'll have to do some of the diggings yourself. Among some popular electronic offers like Apple MacBook, iPhone 6s, GoPro and gaming consoles, ebay also has amazing deals on gift cards. For example, we often find gift card deals from Kohl's and Sephora at a $10 discount from ebay sellers and that can add up to a lot if you're stacking discounts and gift card savings during your shopping spree this holiday! Our go-to page for all of ebay's top savings is their Daily Deal page, you're pretty much guaranteed a sale on products listed on this page (plus, nearly all items are eligible for free shipping no minimum).
Walmart cyber week specials are still going strong and will run from now through December 3, 2016. If you missed their cyber week savings, don't fret, the retailer will still have many discounts available on all department! Your best bet for the deepest discount is to shop and use the filtering options on the left-hand side to browse from only rollbacks, clearance, special buy or any other reduced prices. As a bonus mention, don't forget to check out their Dare to Compare page where all popular items are price matched in real time against the retailers' top competitors like Target and Amazon.
Drones are one of the most buzz-worthy gifts this year for both adults and kids! We've narrowed down a few places to shop drone deals even when the biggest shopping days have passed. Check out Walmart's drone sale from $45 and find more options on ebay if you're looking for a quality drone camera. Depending on what kind of drone you want and what capabilities or features you need, drones can range from $30 to as high as $900 but you're sure to find a discount from one of the two major retailers.
Fashion and Jewelry
Walmart will have tons of fashion and jewelry deals online brought to you by thousands of Walmart Marketplace sellers. Save up to $3,000 on diamond jewelry. Handbags from Kate Spade, Fossil, Michael Kors and Rebecca Minkoff will start at $71. Michael Kors watches will sell for as low as $99.99. Gucci, Miu Miu, Ray-Ban, Cartier and Prada sunglasses will also start at $99.99.
If you or your family is still in need of winter clothes, Walmart offers some deals in this category at every day low prices and we can expect more new deals to launch throughout the holiday season. Fashion retailers like GAP, Old Navy, and the Banana Republic are all under one company and you'll find new discount offers daily which can range from an extra 25-50% off sitewide.
If you're a one-stop shopper, shopping online from major department retailers like Kohl's, Macy's, JCPenney and Bon-Ton will save you and arm and a leg. These retailers' roll out massive deals over the holidays and they don't stop at Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We still have Green Monday, Free Shipping Day and of course, Super Saturday to look forward to! Department retailers will be running sales and promotions aggressively in December and that's actually a good thing for busy holiday shoppers because it just means more savings is heading our way! As a quick reminder, retailers' have been dishing out digital savings tremendously as the mobile shopping trend continues to rise. That means online shoppers are privy to tons of coupon codes, free shipping discount offers, and more exclusive web deals. With that said, be sure to browse around online before heading in-stores!
