Bargain Hunting Tips For Last Minute Shoppers

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A lot of folks are spending these last few days before Christmas shopping for holiday gifts.  If you haven't finished your shopping, here are some last minute tips on scoring some big deals.

The days before Christmas can put some shoppers in a frenzy, but some bargain hunters revel in the thrill of the last minute chase.
We asked Eunice Carpitella of Fenwick Island why she waits until the end to shop.  The response, simply "'cause it's much more fun!"

For Alex Thomas of Seaford, it's all about the deals "that's when things start to go on sale."

As major retailers slash their prices, trying to push product before the big day, so are local stores.

Even with big sales during the final holiday push, at stores like Seasons Best in Salisbury, you might find some wiggle room on already low prices.

"We haven't had too many hagglers...we've had a couple though," says employee Kacey Martin. 

Alex Thomas says he's tried to haggle his way through a sale "I've never tried to work em down, at other antique shops I have."

While Seasons Best is willing to work with a price, Kacey reminds, shoppers...just don't get crazy "obviously if they want something that's $75 and they want it for $5, we can't do THAT."

In store shopping isn't for anyone.

If you're like WMDT's Jarred Hill, you know it's getting down to the wire, but there's still time to find great deals online and have gifts delivered in time for Christmas.  A great "deal sourcing" app for your browser is PriceBlink.

Download the free computer app to your web browser, and as you shop, PriceBlink automatically points out where you might be able to find the same item for the lowest price.

WMDT found a Leap Frog Tablet $10 cheaper than with a competitor.

Technology, adding a new level to last minute bargain hunting.
