It is the most important holiday time and also the year-end time.
As we start buying gifts for others and ourselves, here are some ways to save money.
Look for Specials
For example, this week The Superstore is offering tax-free shopping.
Shoppers Drug Mart this weekend is offering a special program on its Optimum Points. Usually, it offers 170 dollars value for 95,000 points but this weekend it will be increased to 250 dollars.
Simply, go through the flyers and see who is offering the best price. For example, if Wal Mart is offering the lowest price for the type of kitchen towels you want, get the flyer and show it to a store that accepts Price Match. This way, you don’t have to go to dozens of stores to do your shopping.
Some stores even offer a percentage discount.
Also, when I bought a point-and-shoot digital camera, from the store itself I used my smart phone to check prices at other stores. The alternate is using bar code scanning apps.
Not All SALES Are Same
Beware of the ‘steep prices’ offers. Some times the prices are not that low, so check around.
So take a look at the flyers, and use smart technology to get the best.
