TGI TIPS: Ways to Conquer Cyber Week


Social Media – Don’t forget to follow your favorite companies on twitter, facebook and isntagram for exclusive deals

Search – or #cybermonday

Site-wide Deals – Cyber Monday is time when a lot of retailers have site-wide deals vs. product specific deals so take advantage of those

Pre-shop – find what you want from stores before the holiday so you can focus on those discounts.  

Promo Codes – To find them, go to, TheKrazyCouponLady or Google the name of the shopping site with the words ‘coupon code’ or ‘promo code.

Set price alerts – Use search engines like Shopstyle and Pricegrabber to compare prices for all over

Bottom Up – Make to shop from bottom up on sale sites

Autofill – Be sure to set up autofill for your credit card or sign up for accounts on your favorite sites 

What to Focus On/Avoid:

Buy: big ticket items, clothes, travel deals, beauty sets, gadgets and holiday decor

Avoid: Resist the urge to shop for yourself and hold off on winter accessories – gloves, coats, etc often go on sale even further after CyberMonday

 Any tips you have for conquering the day?!
