If you are a last minute shopper you might get a little anxious but you might score some of the best deals of the season!
Amazon will have some of the best deals online. But if you want to brave the shopping malls, stores like JC Penney, Macy's and Kohls will be heavily discounting gifts right up until Christmas Eve, but you need to use paper or digital coupons.
Think outside the mall and hit those off-price retailers like TJ Maxx and Ross. New inventory comes in everyday so you don't have to search through picked over items.
If you are shopping online, use coupon codes! It goes without saying but retailers will allow you to "stack" coupons on top of each other. That will help you save on expedited shipping costs you might need.
Check gift card deals, whether it's a retailer or restaurant. Many businesses are offering incentives like a free gift card with purchase or a deal where if you buy a gift card, you get another gift card for free. Use those for smaller gifts.
Finally, price match for a better deal. Walmart, Target, Lowes and Best Buy are just some of the big box stores that will accept a competitor's ad and match it.
