Today is Super Saturday, allegedly the last big shopping day of the Christmas season. Some retailers like Kohl’s and Macy’s opened early today with special savings to get shoppers into the store and buying. Walmart has special deals on TVs today, so if you are looking for a new TV or electronics, check them out.
I have a few deals on my radar to pass onto readers today, so here is a little round-up of savings.
- Beyond the Rack Shopaholic Sale- For fashionistas, this sale offers some great savings on designer goods. The events will launch in at four times: 8:00AM, 11:00AM,2:00PM, and 5:00PM. The club is also offering shoppers the chance to win a $500 shopping spree. A single winner will be drawn from all customers who order from a Shopaholic event. If you are not a member, click here for a special invite for you to join and shop. If you shop the sale, The Recessionista’s readers receive a $10 shopping credit.
- eBay: Special deals at the Fashion Vault including 70% off Betsey Johnson outerwear and social shopping. eBay has launched a social networking shopping tool that works with Facebook. It’s kinda interesting. My sister-in-law and I are testing driving it with a $50 gift certificate eBay offered me. Here’s how it works. You pool your money with family and friends in your social network to to give someone a present. eBay Group Gifts is a Facebook application that allows you to find and fund gifts for family and friends through your social network and helps share the spirit (and cost) needed to give someone the perfect gift. You can start a eBay Group Gifts to gift siblings, parents, charities, and for co-workers and friends. Invite your friends and family via Facebook or email to contribute to the cost of the gift via PayPal (credit/debit card included) and it’s ready to go. Check it out at http://groupgifts.ebay.com. eBay can even make gift suggestions based on the recipient’s interest on their Facebook Page. I’m still testing driving this, but it’s an interesting idea, I have noticed it doesn’t do a great job of suggesting gifts for the person you suggest using Mom, Dad or Friend as search terms. It’s much better when you pick the gift.
- White House Black Market-- 30% off your entire purchase online or in store with code: 9530. I love their holiday collection and just bought a great black and white top with white rosette around the bodice on sale!
