Retailers Offering Great Deals to Attract Holiday Shoppers

Analysts expect more discounts as Christmas nears reports that stores as offering larger discounts with only 8 shopping days remaining. This past weekend shoppers found discounts of 50, 60 and even 70 percent.

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:-)
