Who should online shop for After Christmas sales
US stores with After Christmas sales are focusing on everyone returning gifts today, as they’re already online on their site or in stores. It’s a great opportunity.
You also have all of those consumers who just received gift cards and aren’t quite sure what to spend them on (sadly, you usually can only spend them at one place). It’s “money,” often with an expiration date. That makes these After Christmas deals extra tempting on December 26.
Finally, you can’t always get what you want on Christmas, so it’s nice to see a few price drops lingering around today, so you can pick up what you really want.
When do After Christmas sales begin and end?
After Christmas sales don’t have a refined end date like other online shopping holidays. In fact the start date even had some wiggle room in 2017.
The deals started pouring in before Christmas Day yesterday, precisely when stores closed down for the holiday. This was to ensure items were discounted as soon as they opened back up the day after Christmas.
These sales will transition into year-end deals, but really, they’re one in the same. But some after Christmas sales won’t last forever.
Why buy today during After Christmas sales
This is an easy one. Retailers are trying to make increase their profits before the end of 2017, so they’re discounting as much inventory for you as possible.
Stores in the US also might not have sold as much of certain products as they would have liked, so offloading what didn’t sell well enough is easier to do when it’s dressed up as an After Christmas sale with a flashy price drop sign.
