New Year's Eve sales are your absolute last chance to take advantage of major discounts in 2018. During this time, retailers are desperate to get rid of seasonal inventory that wasn't sold before the Christmas holiday. Prices drop considerably in an effort to make room for new items, sometimes even resembling Black Friday prices.
Whether you missed any holiday sales or just need to spend all the gift cards you got for Christmas, your opportunity to squeeze in last-minute shopping is now.
So when do New Year's Eve sales start? It varies by retailer, but you'll see deals begin the day after Christmas and last through December 31. If you're looking for a solid deal, check out these three product categories.
Winter isn't over yet, but retailers are ready to start getting rid of coats, sweaters, boots, scarves and the like. If you're the outdoorsy type, look at retailers like REI or Back Country. Last year, they hosted deals up to 50% off. High-end retailers can offer impressive discounts too. Net-a-Porter, for example, slashed up to 70% off prices!
According to DealNews, refurbished electronics are a hot deal during this time of year. Cameras are worth checking out too for both new and refurbished models. Start your search at Canon or Nikon.
With the holiday celebrations nearly over, many of us will be preparing to work off all the hearty food we ate over the last several weeks. Amazon and eBay will be a great place to find apparel, sneakers and accessories to get you back on track.
