Based on our experience, retailers are going all out to get our business. Recently, we received a J.C. Penney $10 off coupon for any purchase of $10 or more, which was great to use for a small gift. My spouse is regularly finding gift items at 50% off, before applying discounts from coupons. In addition, we've found that cashiers are very flexible in helping us find discounts that we didn't expect.
Although I'm not a big fan of holiday shopping, I may venture out in the next few days to see if I can find any deals too good to refuse, such as a loaded laptop for under $200:-)
