holiday-shopping-guide

Introducing the ultimate 2014 Holiday shopping guide ! Shopping online during the holiday weekend can get a little overwhelming, especially if you are not a seasoned bargain shopper. Although Black Friday used to be a one day event, the Thanksgiving sales now span over a whole week! There are so many sales and offers going that it is hard to keep track of all of them. Many of us also make the decision to do their entire shopping online to avoid the crowds.

This year we are doing the work for you and hunting ALL the weekend ONLINE sales, coupled with the best cash back deals! This article will be updated daily with all ongoing offers, so don’t forget to bookmark it and check back next week.

1. November 17-26: Early-Bird Holiday Specials

Even though Thankgiving Day marks the official start to the holiday sales, many brands will kick off their sales events a couple of days early.

Make a list of the items you need to purchase, create accounts on  vendors’ websites to speed up checkout and save items in your baskets.
