PROCRASTINATING SHOPPERS ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME AND MANY ARE TURNING TO STARBUCKS TO SAVE CHRISTMAS.
HOWEVER, JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD DISREGARD YOUR BUDGET! HERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF CONVENIENCE AND SAVE MONEY AT THE SAME TIME.
You can take advantage of extended hours at select stores and shop late at night or super early in the morning, when crowds are sparse and you actually have time.
Don’t assume the store sales are the best deals you can get, however, and download a coupon app like Coupon Sherpa for extra savings.
Amazon is offering same-day delivery on Christmas Eve if orders are placed by 10 a.m. for customers in 12 major metro areas. That’s a great option for city dwellers but for the rest of us, in-store pickup is the next best thing.
