After-Christmas shoppers, read this

Posted By on Thu, Dec 25, 2008 at 1:00 PM

The day after Christmas is a pretty big day for shoppers, as retailers have often marked down the merchandise that didn't make the cut before Christmas to get it out of the store. Well, according to this story on CNN, you may want to wait a little longer before perusing the sales racks.

You may get some bargains after Christmas, but if you want really rock-bottom prices, wait until January 5. Retailers are going to be stuck with massive amounts of goods and those will be reduced to fire sale prices. If you have money that you can afford to part with, get out there the first full week of the New Year. Everything from electronics to clothing to appliances to furniture will be a deal.

Be careful if you shop from December 26 through January 4. The bargains are mostly fake ones during those 10 days because patterns are completely disrupted by gift cards. Most people are off from work between Christmas and New Years, have the time to shop and have the gift cards burning a hole in their wallets
