It’s now time to start REALLY hunting down our Christmas deals at the best possible price. Every year I put up a “Wish List” so readers can list the items they need deals on. This list will determine the deals you see on SwagGrabber over the next few months. Simply post a comment with the items you need and the prices you are seeing locally and I will do my best to find you a deal on it. Please make sure to be as specific as possible. You can also upload images or add links to specific items!
Tips for Christmas shopping online!
I highly suggest you sign up for Amazon Mom or Amazon Student to get a Free Prime Membership and get free 2 day shipping on ANY purchase if you haven’t already. If you shop from Amazon a lot, consider getting a full Prime Membership for $79 . This membership can be shared with four other people, so you could get it for only $19 a year! Having a Prime Membership can save you a TON because you get free two day shipping on all orders, no matter how small! This is key because I post a LOT of Amazon deals under the $25 minimum for free shipping!
Also consider getting the 1 month ShopRunner trial membership. This will score you free two day shipping at hundreds of other online stores. Getting now or in the next few weeks should carry you through the bulk of your holiday shopping…including Black Friday!
Most stores (excluding Amazon) offer some sort of cash back through either ShopAtHome or Ebates. Simply click through these sites before you make any online and purchase and you will earn cash back. This can be a great way to save a little extra on your online purchases. You can learn more about cash back programs here!
While you can brave the stores if you want to, normally it isn’t necessary to snag the best deals. Last year, every store (including Walmart!!) had all of the in-store deals available online. The trick is, most of the offers go live very early in the morning (like 3am EST) and they sell out fast, so you will need to be up and ready! Watch for more details about Black Friday!
