Expect deep discounts this holiday season. Stores are going to be very competitive for your shopping dollar so get the best deals you can! To get a jump on things, Sears is already offering Black Friday deals, two days before Halloween! To see the deals, go to http://www.sears.com/?sid=ISx20070515x00001a&psid=13×31569 Offers good October 29th-30th.
Look for other stores to follow suit. JCPenney, Target, Walmart, and Staples will offer great bargains before Thanksgiving.
If you’ve already bought a big holiday gift and see it go on sale, don’t hesitate to take it back and get the better deal if you’re within the return window. At Banana Republic, Gap, and Old Navy, they have a price adjustment policy that has saved me a lot through the years. If you bring your receipt back within 14 days, they’ll scan it and automatically give you money back if the items you bought went on sale. You don’t have to have the items with you, just the receipt! If you’re already at the mall, it makes sense to stop in the store and have the receipt scanned. I’ve saved as much as $50 on one receipt!
Don’t forget to go to www.facebook.com/aliciasdealsinaz and look for the giveaway question: in your neighborhood, how many average-sized bags is the perfect amount to buy without running out or having tons left over? One person who comments will receive a $50 Dolce gift card! Drawing is on Monday.
