  • Last Minute Shopping

    December 21, 2009 - Leave a Comment

    Now that we are 3 days away from Christmas, the Wi-Ex team thought we would give everyone a few last minute shopping tips to keep you sane while in the battle of the lines at the mall:

    1.       Have a shopping buddy who can stand in line while you shop around and so  you can avoid the lines. Take turns with your buddy being the shopper and the space holder and the two of you will be out of the mall before you know it!

    2.       Check for last minute shopping deals online. There are still a few online stores offering shipping before the 25th if you order early in the week.

    3.       Try to be at the stores when they open so you can be the first in and the first out!

    4.       Make lists before you head to the mall. Doing this will help you keep your sanity while facing the crowd. Sometimes with the sheer amount of people, holiday music, and heat in the malls will make you lose your cool. You'll lose track of your list, and before you know it you'll forget your important items.

    5.       Try to pick your last minute gifts you need at a common super store, like Wal-Mart, Target or Kohl's-- Think one stop shopping!

    Happy Shopping! Keep the prize in mind and get in and get out!

  • Shopping Deals: Shipping Savings

    November 16, 2009 - Leave a Comment

    Another great way to save a few bucks during the holiday season is taking advantage of the free shipping deals that retailers offer you. This year stores are trying to get their numbers up with a little persuasion which benefits the shopper more than anyone. The free shipping is online only which means you don’t even have to get out of your pjs to cross a few items off your list. Make a list of the things you will be needing from each store and if it adds up to the free shipping limit then buy them now in order to get this deal. I do have to warn you though….the worst thing you can do is to buy random items just to get free shipping, this is a huge shopping mistake and will only cost you more in the end! Also taxes are not included in this limit so the items in your chart have to add up to the limit for the free shipping. Following are a few stores that are offering free shipping this week in the U.S.:

    The Home Depo: Free shipping for purchases over $49

    Target: Free shipping for purchases over $50

    Forever 21: Free shipping for purchases over $75

    Check out your favorite store’s online pages to see if any free shipping can be offered to you this week! Happy Shopping!

    One of the biggest perks of getting your shopping done early for the holidays is to grab the great deals. This week I found a great assortment of deals for the kids in your life. Target has a section in their weekly ad titled "Great Gifts Under $25" which is nice regardless of your budget. The best thing about these deals is that while the price tag for these gifts is low, their value is well over $25, guaranteeing that the kiddos will have huge smiles on their faces. These gifts will cover the princess in your life with a castle themed ball pit, rollerblades for your sporty boy, and even scooters for the on-the-go kids. You just have to be in the loop on these deals, by picking up Target’s weekly ad or by going to the following link to check out all the fun filled deals:

These days everyone likes to save a little extra here and there and the little savings really do add up in the end. With the following small savings tips you have more money enjoy in the new year and have more to give in the present:

    1. Cheap Treats

     A creative saving technique that will allow people to save up to 75% on their stocking stuffer candy is to buy the candy this week. With Halloween over the candy is on sale for up to 75% off. Some of these candies don't have anything Halloween themed on them so they will be fine to have during Christmas and some stay good for months to come. Check the expiration dates and get to buying to save!

    2. Coupons

    Two of the best coupons this holiday season come out each week, therefore you can get the savings every week from now until the holidays. Michael's and Bed Bath & Beyond offer 20% off one item coupons that will allow a good bit off high ticket items. Utilizing this each week can save a huge chuck by the time the holiday week gets here.

    3. Dollar Isles

    Some of the superstores have the dollar isles in the front of the center that have some pretty good stocking suffers for a few dollars or less. These items range from themed socks to themed cooking utensils. Check these isles each week and by the time the holidays arrive you will have a stocking full of goodies ready.

    Happy Shopping and Saving!
