A majority of Americans are dreading shopping this holiday season, and many are revealing their inner Grinch!
An Ebates.com survey of 2,429 American adults discovered that 96% of Americans are dreading some aspect of holiday shopping, and shoppers are engaging in some bad behavior, including:
· Cutting in line – 6%
· Fighting over a parking space – 6%
· Parking in a handicapped spot – 4%
· Taking an item from someone else’s shopping cart – 3%
· Physically or verbally fighting with someone for an item in a store – 3%
· Other type of “mean manners” – 4%
In the meantime, feel free to use these tips from Ebates:
1. Get Double Bang for your Buck
Sites like Ebates and FatWallet can help you get double bang for your buck when going to top stores like Target, Macy’s, GAP, Nordstrom, and Toys R Us. They send you money just for shopping through them in the form of a rebate check. If you want to buy your favorite Groupon deal, those sites will give you a rebate check; so you take advantage of the savings AND get a little something extra.
2. Click on Codes
Coupon sites like AnyCoupons and “cash back” sites have thousands of coupon codes and free shipping codes. Even if the online store you’re visiting isn’t offering free shipping, check with those sites for special shipping codes. Same goes with coupon codes.
3. Save Time by going Mobile
There are shopping apps that congregate all the holiday sales for you so you don’t have to visit a million different online stores, especially if you know what you’re looking for. For example, FatWallet’s Black Friday Deal Finder app helps shoppers find where to get the best deals as they happen. And make sure the app is free, like FatWallet’s!
