The holidays are only a few months away, and like it or not, the time is sure to fly by. If you’re the type to feel a bit stressed around the holiday season you’re not alone, with many people finding that the packed malls, the idea of buying lots of gifts and worry about dealing with family can mean that they don’t exactly feel like they have the holiday spirit.
The answer? Groupon Coupons! These great savings and deals can be used online, meaning you can get all of your shopping done without ever leaving your home, and you can get started nice and early- meaning no Christmas Eve rush to the supermarket.
There are 9,000 different stores where you can buy holiday gifts and more, including fun for the whole family, great deals for travel, and restaurant vouchers. There are also more than 70,000 coupons available, meaning a lot of money to be saved.
Some of the stores you can choose from are:
- Ulta Beauty
- American Apparel
- Bath & Body Works
- Red Lobster
These are just a few examples of the coupons you’ll find, so be sure to head to the website and check out the many deals available so you can start taking advantage of the potential savings.
This is an especially great idea for people with kids, as they’ll often tell you about the things they want through the year and then draw a blank when you ask them what they want from Santa.
Using coupons and shopping early will mean you can get them what they’re looking for, wrap them, hide them, and be completely done by December so you can spend the month drinking eggnog and smugly telling everyone you know that your shopping is already finished.
There are also a range of travel deals available, which is great if you’ve been meaning to plan a family vacation. Thinking about hiring a car? You’ll get $25 of driving credit free with the Zipcar coupon, and if you need accommodation you can get a night free with hotels.com, or take advantage of Hilton’s deals and specials. Flights can be expensive for an entire family, so check out the offer for $40 off with CheapAir, and if you want to look stylish while you travel, consider checking out the discounts at top luggage store Vera Bradley or purchase a 3-in-1 cosmetic bag for Sephora (this also makes a great gift for the traveller in your life.
Another good way to prepare for the holidays is to set aside a dedicated savings account and make in inaccessible from your credit and debit cards. By diverting $10 a week into this account, you’ll easily be able to pay for holiday expenses like food for Thanksgiving and Christmas and gas for when you’re visiting relatives (plus a few nice bottles of wine).
