reports breaking this morning about Apple's changes to help out holiday shoppers to make shopping faster and easier with in-store pickup and easier shipping, we at Unplggd have a few suggestions of our own for you tech-savvy holiday shoppers. Read on to get a head start on crossing off things on your holiday shopping list.
Make a list, check it twice. With retailers everywhere hoping to get the most (money) out of holiday shoppers, they are also taking steps to help make shopping a smoother experience for shoppers. Major retailers such Best Buy and Walmart have allowed consumers to make lists and even share lists to make sure no one is disappointed on Christmas morning. Online retail giant, Amazon has similar feature on their own Apple and Android app. Keep your eyes peeled for online deals. For the savvy holiday shoppers, the approach of Thanksgiving means two things: Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the two biggest days of shopping of the year. Start keeping your eyes out for coupons and deals that are coming up for these two days. Plan your purchases to avoid missing out on some of the best deals of the year. Keep your eyes out on our favorite flash deal sites and even our own Deals of the Week features! Stick to eBay or Amazon. If you're feeling too lazy for Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but still want to save a few bucks, we suggest keeping eBay open. Many Black Friday shoppers buy whatever good deals they could find just to turn around and flip it on an online auction site such as eBay or Amazon. The deals they offer are often still cheaper than what the retailers are offering post-Black Friday. Just be sure to compare a few auctions to avoid paying too much.
