SwagGrabber Christmas Wish List 2012

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.  Feel free to post links to specific items!

Tips for Christmas shopping online!

FREE SHIPPING:
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!

BLACK FRIDAY:
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!

      Watch Sears – they have had a TON of appliance clearance lately. I am doing a kitchen remodel the beginning of next year so I will probably be posting a lot of deals after the New Year…LOL. Also watch Searsoutlet.com – that site rocks for local Sears clearance.

    I’m looking for any deals on the purchase of gift cards and the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS II Telephoto Zoom Lens! Thank you!

      I actually have this lense. Watch the Lightning Deals on Amazon for the next month – I picked mine up during a Lightning Deal for $199 about this time last year. That was the best price I have seen ;)

      BTW – this lense is awesome!

    What happened to those Caboodles that used to come with free sample packs? I mean, I know this was 15+ years ago when I was caboodle-user age, but I’m trying to track one down for my niece and it seems like none of them have the pack of “goodies” in them anymore. Am I just looking in the wrong place(s)?

    • SwagGrabber Sheri on November 15, 2012 at 9:05 am

      I had to go look up Caboodles…LOL. I don’t see them with goodies – did you try eBay? I see quite a few on there and some look like they have extras!

    • SwagGrabber Sheri on November 15, 2012 at 9:09 am

      The plasma cars should be on sale soon at Amazon – they are $49 right now but I have seen them as low as $39. I hope you grabbed the Fire for $129 yesterday!!! If not, watch the Lightning Deals.

      Deals on Amazon gift cards are VERY rare!
