“Since so many people want to save money and yet don’t plan to wait until Black Friday and Cyber Monday, consumers should look elsewhere to take advantage of all available discounts,” said Belinda Dabrowski, managing director, AAA Partnership Development. “Check memberships like AAA to see if you can get incentives and discounts when shopping, because you may be missing out on significant ways to save your family additional money this holiday season.”
Take advantage of retail or online discounts and check with any clubs or associations like AAA to see if discounts and rewards are available.
When shopping online, look for special offers or dates from retailers when free shipping may be available.
Check store circulars for in-store sales or coupons. Note that many retailers will honor sale prices if items were purchased the week before they went on sale.
Sort through junk mail since many retailers send bonus coupons and gift cards in the mail during the holidays.
Consider taking one retailer’s circular to another retailer and ask for competitive pricing.
If you want to purchase an item in a store, but forgot the coupon, ask if you can bring the coupon back for the adjusted price.
