This is a sponsored post to help you save money on Christmas Gifts. All thoughts are my own.
Does Christmas shopping have you in a tailspin? I have a tendency to over buy at Christmas. I can’t help it. I love giving presents. Every single year, I blow my budget by A LOT. I kind of just expect it now. It is a really bad habit. And since we are working on buying a house, I really need to find a way to get a handle on it. But realistically, knowing me, instead of staying on budget, what I try to do is save when I buy. And I try to make the most of how I spend.
Tips for Saving Money on Christmas Gifts
Amazon: It is the first place I look for buying. I can find everything I need on Amazon and I can save a lot. Since I have Prime, I never pay for shipping. I can save the amount Prime costs me in just the holiday season and the rest of the year is a bonus. Plus, it’s 2 day shipping. Completely worth it.
Sales: Of course you know to look for deals. But be sure to look for deal sites and sites that give you cash back when you shop with them. Sites like Ebates and Top Cash Back that give you money back for shopping.
Credit Card Incentives: If you have a credit card that gives cash back, be sure to look where it pays you to shop. A lot of times, you earn more cash back when you shop at the grocery store. As long as you pay the credit card bills on time, then here is a great way to earn and save while you are getting your Christmas gifts.
