Shopping for gifts doesn’t have to be the biggest pain of your life during the holiday season. Whether you love or hate Black Friday, there is no denying it’s value. What about the other 364 days? Where can you find the rest of the biggest sales of the year?
Take a look at this quick guide about shopping for deals when you least expect them to occur.
The day after Valentines Day (February 14th) is always a big day for jewelry store discounts. Many of the top brands will discount their quality items in hopes of selling the merchandise that didn’t sell leading up to the big day.
Use this to your advantage and grab a few pieces of jewelry for the next couple of big days coming up this year.
Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day is another big shopping day that gets overlooked. Normally you can find a bunch of major appliance retailers dropping the price on some of their highest selling products, in the lead up to a big cookout weekend.
You can also find major deals on clothes and electronics as well. While this weekend is focused on home improvement and showing the value of the newest grill, there are plenty of great sales in other markets you can go after.
Amazon Prime Day
Is Amazon Prime Day bigger than Black Friday? The online store giant holds their annual Prime Membership sale in July, and you can find deals on virtually everything on the main website.
You can also find deals for exclusive Amazon content such as Amazon Audible and Amazon Music Unlimited (an upgrade from the standard Amazon Music account).
You can’t go wrong with any of the deals you find on Prime Day and could do all of your holiday shopping in one sitting.
Black Friday Weekend
We all know about the craziness Black Friday sales can bring on your local major retail stores such as Walmart and Best Buy. If you are brave enough to fight through the crowds for discounts on the newest toys, electronics, and televisions, you won’t be disappointed.
Most stores will open up on Thanksgiving evening, much to the chagrin of the store’s employees, in hopes of securing more revenue.
While Friday is always a huge sales day, most of the sales will run through the weekend and pave the way for Cyber Monday.
For those of you that don’t want to end up in a fight over a 50-inch television, cruise the internet and snag a great deal on many of the same items that you would find in the brick and mortar stores.
This will not help you avoid waiting in line at 2 am. You can shop from home or while you are out during the day, while still focusing on what you need to buy.
