Effortless Holiday Shopping is Just a Click Away!

Online shopping tips and tricks from the experts at

Toronto, Ontario - November 29, 2021 – Is just thinking about shopping mall chaos during this holiday season making you less than jolly? Then you’re no doubt one of many Canadians opting to shop online this year. eMarketer predicts 2005 will be the largest online holiday shopping season ever. Ipsos-Reid reported that during the 2004 holiday season, more than 3.5 million Canadian adults purchased at least one gift online - a 59 per cent increase over the previous year.

“Consumers are drawn to the convenience of online shopping,” says Derek Szeto, founder of, Canada’s largest online bargain hunting community. “Retailers have spent millions of dollars on making their online stores as interactive, informative, and user-friendly as possible. When you shop online you can often find things like online coupons, Internet-only deals and in-depth information that just aren’t available at a retailer’s brick and mortar location.”

Reasons to Shop Online this Holiday Season

  • Save Money—Hopefully you know exactly what to get everybody, but that doesn’t mean you should run to the mall to buy it. You can save a lot of money by visiting bargain hunting sites like and shopping search engines like to find the best prices on the items your friends and family want. With a little bit of searching you will find a large number of coupons that you can use to save on your online purchases. It saves gas too as you won’t have to drive to 10 different stores to do your shopping.
  • Save Time—Online shopping is fast. No line ups, no parking kilometres from the mall, no traveling to different stores when an item is sold out, and many stores will gift wrap an item before shipping it to you. With all of the time you’ll save, you can actually spend the holiday season with your friends and family instead of with strangers in a mall!
  • No Crowds—Navigating the malls during the holiday season is a full contact sport and if you do manage to find what you want, you’ll face long lines at the check out. Shopping online is crowd free, which means no lines, no parking lots, and no hassle.
  • Find the Perfect Gift—Finding the perfect gift is difficult at the best of times, but the additional pressure of the holidays can make it nearly impossible. Online shopping can make your life easier because sites like offer suggestions based on other items your problem gift recipient likes. You can also research other possibilities by visiting sites and message boards that they frequent to find out what their online friends are interested in and if you like, you can even ask for suggestions.

The ease and fun of online shopping makes it an excellent option to reduce some of that holiday stress. To help you navigate the online shopping landscape, the huge community of online bargain junkies at ( are always around to help.
