Preparation Is Key
To score the best deals of the season, RetailMeNot recommends putting a holiday shopping plan in place before the madness begins. First, shoppers should always put together a shopping list and assign each recipient a budget. Shoppers should also download savings apps like RetailMeNot, sign up for retailers' newsletters and follow brands' social pages to ensure even more discounts. Doing your research ahead of time is also a great way to stay ahead of the rest and be "in the know" with the latest product deals and where to find them. With a plan outlined, shoppers can breathe a little easier.
