Holidays Made Easy

Super Saturday is here! How to get the most savings out of this mega-sale day

Holiday shopping procrastinators, you’re in luck! Today is Super Saturday, the second-largest day for in-store traffic and sales (after Black Friday). And just like on Black Friday, you can do the majority of your shopping online.

Shoppers walk along Oxford Street to find bargains in central London, on December 26, 2014, in the post Christmas Boxing Day sales.

“All of the sales you’re seeing in store are also online,” said Howard Schaffer, VP merchandising and partner management for Offers.com. He suggests buying online and picking up in store to avoid dealing with crowds. The added bonus: you might find better coupons online than in-store, too.

“Everybody is going to save a ton of money this weekend, the questions are: how do you make it more fun and easier on yourself?” If you’re shopping today, here’s what to lookout for:

Toys and more toys: Christmas marks the end of "toy season," therefore toy companies and retailers are looking to move inventory ASAP. You’ll see sales up to 50 percent.

Hot prices on outerwear: Unusually warm weather has retailers slashing prices on winter apparel. Expect to see 40-70 percent off on winter wear today, said Schaffer.

Extended store hours: Night owls and early risers can look forward to extended store hours starting today.

Stackable coupons: Make sure you’re combining the product sales with a stackable coupon, said Schaffer. More stores will offer them starting today, so always do a coupon search before you buy.
