Canada's Bargain Hunting Experts at RedFlagDeals.com and Scarlett Lounge Reveal Top Tips for Boxing Day Bonanza
TORONTO, ONTARIO, Dec. 22, 2010 - For bargain hunters across Canada, Boxing Day is the most important shopping occasion of the year. Shopaholics, spendthrifts, and people who didn't get what they wanted for Christmas will flood to stores and online checkout lines for big savings. Just showing up at the store doesn't mean you'll get what you want, however. Some preparation and research beforehand will help you get the most out of this once a year shopping bonanza. Courtesy of RedFlagDeals.com and Scarlett Lounge, here are a few tips for making the most of Boxing Day Shopping.
Tip #1 - Start online. Use the Internet to do as much research as possible and save time in-store. Rather than scour individual retail websites and flyers to compare prices, visit bargain shopping websites such as RedFlagDeals.com and Scarlett Lounge which compile the deals together and host Boxing Day discussion forums, store flyers, deals, and coupons. Many of these features are posted before the sales even start.
"For millions of Canadian shoppers, RedFlagDeals.com has become their 'Boxing Day Headquarters', packed with early information on the best deals of the season," says Derek Szeto, founder of RedFlagDeals.com. "In addition to a mobile version of the website that you can use while shopping or waiting in line, readers can now also follow @boxingday on Twitter to receive real-time Boxing Day sale updates."
Tip #2 - Create and update all your online accounts at banks and retailers ahead of time. Make sure you know your MasterCard SecureCode or Verified by Visa code and consider bringing cash as an alternative form of payment in case a line accepts cash only. This will help make sure the check-out process goes as smoothly as possible.
Tip #3 - Be prepared and decisive. Create a list of what you want to buy and make an itinerary before you head out. If your list includes clothing, you might want to prioritize those stores first, as the hottest styles always sell out quickly.
Tip #4 - Know the trends. Make sure to research the latest styles before you hit the stores so you can find the look you want. Browse websites like Scarlett Lounge that have Star Steals and "fashion for less" suggestions to help you pinpoint the key pieces and incorporate them into your wardrobe on the cheap come Boxing Day.
Tip #5 - Keep your eyes peeled for early sales. Many online sales will start the evening of December 24th or at midnight on December 25th. Some retailers will even start their in-store sales a day or two before Christmas.
