Shopping online is the best. Websites have way more merchandise than the stores do, you can compare prices from different stores without having to walk or drive from place to place, and you don't even have to get dressed. I mean, you really can't beat shopping from your bed in sweat pants, right? But such luxury comes at a cost: paying for shipping. And that's something I'm not down with. But if the thought of braving the mall the week before Christmas makes you want to run and hide, then choose one of the shops/websites offering free shipping before Christmas. Saving money makes for a seriously happy holiday.
The holidays can drain your bank account, and between worrying about rent/gas/food/etc., you definitely have to watch what you spend and keep your purchases under a budget. So there's literally nothing more frustrating than scoring a great deal on a present, only to add it to your shopping cart and realize that shipping tacked on $10 or more and now you're over budget. And that's if you shopped early enough to pay standard shipping — if you wait until the last minute, you might have to be even more for rush shipping. And apparently, that's pretty common. RetailMeNot just released their latest edition of the Shoppers Trend Report, and found that nearly 30 percent of consumers typically wait until the week of Christmas to do the majority of their holiday shopping.
But no worries, because plenty of stores/websites are offering free shipping before Christmas. Clearly, they know the best way to spread Christmas cheer.
