SAVE A SACKFUL OF CASH ON CHRISTMAS GIFTS!
SET A SPENDING LIMIT!
Figure out the total amount of money you can afford to spend. Divide it up among each person on your list and stick to it!
USE DISCOUNT GIFT CARDS!
These can save you ten to 20 percent on purchases from a wide array of retailers including the Apple Store, Radio Shack, Sears and Home Depot. Check out giftcards.com for different deals.
Most companies offer unique deals to internet shoppers. Go directly to the brand’s website rather than a department store site for the best bargains.
CHECK FOR SOCIAL MEDIA DISCOUNTS!
Many retailers offer reduced prices if you follow them on Twitter or Facebook. A quick search of their recent posts may show deals you never knew existed!
BOOK TRAVEL PLANS EARLY!
Booking air, bus or train tickets at least eight weeks in advance will bring big savings when prices skyrocket during the holiday season! Railroads also often offer holiday discount cards.
BUY COMBINED GIFTS!
Think about single gifts that groups of people can enjoy! For kids, buy video games or CDs to share. Meanwhile, for their parents, try a framed photo or tickets to a show.
