While we all know those people who love to walk into a store and see all of the Christmas decorations set up way before December, for a lot of us, it sends us into panic mode.
Just the thought of all the money we’ll have to spend decorating, gift giving, and stocking up on food can cause us to break out in a cold sweat. Never fear though, because thanks to the age of the internet, online shopping is a great way to easily get your holiday shopping completed without being overwhelmed by over-the-top jolly store decor.
Not only does shopping online help you avoid the commute and the crowds, there are also some pretty simple ways to save money while you’re browsing the web. Check out these apps and extensions that can help you save big on holiday purchases:
Ibotta: this app gives you cash back on purchases like groceries, restaurants, and online shopping. Check out their deals on Target items, as well as goodies from Gap, Groupon, Houzz, Kohl’s, and Overstock!
Earny: this price protection tool makes sure you’re getting the best price for whatever you’re browsing for. Earny monitors and negotiates price drops from well known retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Zappos, and many others.
Trim: if you’re a regular Amazon shopper, you’ll love this bot. It functions in the Facebook messenger app, and it will reimburse you for price fluctuations on Amazon purchases.
