It's Never Too Late for Last-Minute Holiday Deals

Shoppers Who Procrastinate Find Some of the Best Deals, Experts Say

ST. THOMAS, VIRGIN ISLANDS--(Marketwired - December 21, 2015) - Shoppers who wait until the last minute to finish their holiday shopping don't need to worry about paying too much. According to Brad Wilson, Founder and CEO of Brad's Deals, the week before Christmas often hosts some of the best deals of the entire holiday season.

"Retailers are anxious about clearing out excess inventory and start slashing prices before Christmas even hits," said Wilson. "You can't count on getting a specific item because it is selective, but waiting until the last minute can turn up some really stellar deals if you stay flexible."

When shopping online, paying close attention to holiday shipping deadlines. Brad's Deals makes it even simpler for shoppers, curating a diverse and budget-friendly collection of last-minute gift ideas guaranteed to arrive by Christmas.

Opt for in-store pickup.

If you missed a shipping cutoff, Casey Runyan, Managing Editor at Brad's Deals, suggests looking for in-store pickup options instead. Ordering online lets customers skip searching shelves and standing in line to check out, making it a real time-saver when time is running short.

"At this point, pretty much every major retailer offers some type of in-store pickup option," says Runyan. It may not be available for every item, though, and is likely to be limited by local inventory.

Look for deals on gift cards.

Runyan also suggested looking at gas stations for discounted gift cards as you're heading out of town. "They use it as a way to get more people to buy gas at their station," she says. Online gift card resellers are another last-minute option, though you'll probably have to print or email the card to get it in time for Christmas.
