After Christmas Sales 2013: What You Can Expect

What: Dealnews forecasts an especially good (and early!) After Christmas Sales 2013 season for markets.

What They Say:

For apparel — which is the most discounted item after Christmas — the best sales will come from Banana Republic, Club Monaco, GAP, and French Connection, all of which had “best of the year,” Editors’ Choice-level sales on the day after Christmas in 2012. For GAP and French Connection, it was the second consecutive year that their After Christmas sales turned DealNews editors’ heads with extra discounts ranging from 30% to 50% off on top of sales that already slashed up to 75% off.

Honorable mentions also go to Saks Fifth Avenue and 6pm, both of which offered their biggest percent-off sales along with no-minimum free shipping. And in-store shoppers will want to carry a stack of printable coupons for additional savings. Staples, Express, and Banana Republic are just a few of the stores with printable coupons that combined with ongoing sales.

What We Say: First, we have a Black Friday that starts on a Thursday. Now we have an After-Christmas sale that starts on–get this– the 24th, or the eve of Christmas. Yep, shopping and logic: never the twain shall meet.

But really, if you don’t mind buying friends late presents, or if you want to buy something for yourself this time, the After Christmas Sales is the perfect time to shop, shop, shop! Provided that you have saved enough money to get by in January’s early weeks, that is.
