Online Shopping Secrets
DAYTON Twas two weeks before Christmas, and the sales started heating up. If you waited to start your shopping, you may still save a few bucks.
We've been hearing about holiday sales since before Thanksgiving. Right before Black Friday consumer expert Matt Granite of USA Today said, Don't buy toys until two weeks before Christmas.
He was right. Big retailers are making their final push for Christmas profits in the next two weeks, and the toy sales are underway. Toys R Us has a 15 percent discount on many toys right now.
Target is offering buy one get one for half off on many of its toys. If you shop online, better get those orders in soon.
And tech expert Dave Hatter offers this trick: Leave items in your cart online, and if a retailer has your email, X number of days later, they will send you an email and attempt to get you to come back and buy it at a discount rate, and I've seen people use that as a strategy.
We tried it with a women's clothing website, and it works. The site sent our reporter an email for 50 percent off the items in her cart.
By the way, a lot of online retailers are offering free shipping deals right now if you spend a certain amount. A recent Gallup poll is predicting flat retail sales for the holiday season, or just barely better than last year.
Middle to high end stores are faring well this Christmas. Walmart scaled back its profit expectations.
