‘Tis the season for jammed parking lots, busy malls and shoppers trying to find the best bargain. The holiday shopping season is here, and will be around for the next few weeks. Whether you prefer online shopping or actually going into a store, many use the internet for researching, finding the best deal or convenience.
According to PR News Wire, 96% of people say they shop online for convenience, 80% say they shop online for a good price and 91% of consumers use online shopping for research purposes.
Do you fall into one of these categories? To make your holiday shopping experience better we have created a list of 3 ways to make holiday shopping easier, cheaper and more fun, who doesn’t like that?
1. Use the Internet: Like we just mentioned, using the internet for holiday shopping in some way whether it be for research, price or convenience will make your life easier. Maybe you prefer to physically purchase a product vs. online, but knowing what you want when going in the store along with an expected price is always convenient.
2. Download Apps: Many stores are making their customer’s buying experience easier with apps. Many stores have their own apps but there are also apps, such as RedLaser, which allows you to scan barcodes in order to find the cheapest deal, both online and in store.
3. Use Coupon Codes: Who doesn’t like a good discount? Many stores, including ourselves, are offering special coupon codes, which are entered in at checkout, that give you an even larger discount when holiday shopping, and that’s always a win.
