Happy Holidays PCH Fans! (Well…Almost)

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are quickly approaching once again! With Halloween candy making its debut as early as August, it’s only a matter of time before winter holiday themed everything is on the shelves of every convenience store known to man. I think the point of advertising holidays months before they happen is to give people the option to plan ahead! However, no matter how far in advance the holidays are shoved in our faces, there are still far too many people that rush to the stores with just days left to do their shopping! But listen up PCH fans! This year is going to be different.

For once, all your holiday gifts will be bought, wrapped, and ready to brighten the faces of your loved ones BEFORE schedule! Imagine that! I know this might sound like mission impossible, but it doesn’t have to be with the help of PCHSearch&Win! This year, we have one of the least amounts of days to shop between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so we have to act fast! Listen up to how you can be on top of things this holiday season by getting a jump-start on your holiday shopping!

Let’s start off small and ask ourselves this: how can we jumpstart buying the perfect holiday toys? I typed “How To Find The Best Early Toy Shopping” into PCHSearch&Win and found an article from USA Today all about early toy shopping! When it comes to this year’s hottest toys, if you wait till the last minute, the toy you want may already be sold out! Also, it’s not likely that the price of the toy will change, so waiting will unfortunately not get you a better deal.

Advantages Of Shopping Early:

-Toy guides such as “Wal-Mart’s Hot Toy List” and “The Toys“R”Us Big Toy Book” come out as early as the beginning of November to give shoppers a preview of this year’s hottest toys. Take advantage of them! These two books actually include toys that were chosen by real kids! Simply find the age group that you’re looking for, and the book will tell you what toys you should be looking for!

-Layaway Layaway Layaway! Right now through December 15th, Toys“R”Us is offering In-store AND Online layaway! This means that you can go to any Toys“R”Us, pick out this year’s hottest toys, pay ONLY 10% of your total at the time of purchase, and have the convenience of making small payments over time! Also, starting October 31st, Toys“R”Us has announced a 10% cash reward up to $100 on certain toy purchases for its rewards card members! This means that you will actually be rewarded for getting your shopping done early!

-Walmart is also offering a layaway program from September 13th through December 13th on anything in the store! Again, you only have to pay 10% of your total purchase upfront, and then pay the rest over time!

Getting a jump-start on holiday shopping can save you time, money, and energy this holiday season when you’ll really need it! Even though planning and thinking ahead may seem like a pain, just remember that once it’s done, you don’t need to do it again for another whole year! Keep in mind the benefits of shopping early, and if you’re interested in any more tips, look to PCHSearch&Win to keep you in the loop!

    Hello, this Christmas I can not buy gifts for my grand children, this is the fifth year that I just can not afford the extra cost, I am on limited income, and life is very hard for me, so to have help would be a dream come true. My number is 49-04, I hope this is the lucky one for me. Priscilla Latzen.
