It’s the most wonderful (and expensive) time of the year. There’s tons of shopping to be done and entertaining friends and family, and even treating ourselves to a few coveted items to celebrate surviving yet another year. With all of the money that is going out, it may seem like it is impossible to save money.
But I am here to tell you that you can still save money this holiday season.
In a previous post, I told you all about Finn by Chase, a mobile bank exclusively in St. Louis that can be accessed through your smartphone or device. Finn is awesome for movers and shakers who need to bank on demand and on their schedule. You can access your account at any time and perform most banking options like deposit money, check balances, and more.
What’s awesome about Finn is that is also helps its customer save money because it works as your partner to help you reach your savings goals. You can set up savings options like, for every time you purchase a pizza, $25 is put into your savings account. Finn helps you visualize where your money is going so that you can track is and spend it more wisely.
With Finn by Chase, we can still save money this holiday season while decking the halls.
Need some additional savings tips? Here’s a few:
Taking out cash for shopping helps you stick to a budget and alleviates overspending. When swiping a card all of the time, it is easy to spend too much. Have a set budget, take out the cash, and stick to it.
Deals and steals
Always purchase your items on sale and do your research to see who has the lowest price in store or online. Many stores also price match so if you do buy something and see it somewhere else cheaper, ask them to price match if that is their policy. Use an app like Retail Me Not that keeps up with all of the sales and deals, and consult it before you check out.
When buying technology or gadgets, try to look for open box units, demos, or ones that have been refurbished. You can save quite a bit on them, and it can help your bottom line.
Wait Until After Turkey Day
Studies show that Black Friday and Cyber Monday offer great value, but it’s best to wait until after both of these popular shopping days to buy. You can find lower prices right up until Christmas Eve.
