(Los Angeles, CA) – Scambook, the leading online complaint resolution platform, has warned consumers about Holiday Shopping Tunnel Vision and the scams that have been prevalent ever since Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The best way to avoid some of these scams is to get the most value out of your purchases with After Christmas Sales. As the price cuts begin on the 26th of December, consumers can get a head start on helping retailers clear out this season’s inventory at unbeatably affordable prices.
“Smart shoppers should look to stock up on seasonal items such as children’s toys, winter clothing and high-end electronics that were returned, restocked or refurbished,” said Kase Chong, Director of Marketing at Scambook. “This is the perfect time for those patient consumers. They just need to be aware to check return and exchange policies before the purchase of these discounted items.”
The following are Scambook’s 4 Top Tips to getting the most out of After Christmas Sales:
- Stock up on seasonal holiday items. Anything produced specifically for the holidays will be substantially marked down. Stock up on wrapping paper, greeting cards, Christmas lights and decorations that can be up to 75% off at some major stores. Even holiday candy is good until January or February.
- Get this year’s “hot” kids’ toys. Toy stores such as Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Walmart and Target are eager to clear their shelves of the Furby, LeapPad, MGA Novi Stars, and Lalaloopsy dolls before January 1st. This is perfect time to buy toys to hold onto until birthdays or donations to children’s charities.
- Buy winter swag. With more cold weather ahead, After Christmas Sales are the perfect time to buy those must-have trendy sweaters, gloves, mittens, scarves, fuzzy slippers and knit caps at the lowest prices of the season!
- Find incredible discounts on refurbished, returned or restocked electronics. All the Black Friday and Cyber Monday impulse buys of laptops, TVs, tablet PCs, video games and other electronic items that may have been opened, lightly used, or remain unused are now being sold at lower prices. Returned, refurbished and restocked items promise huge savings.
