“Day-after shopping” is a popular American tradition. The day after Thanksgiving, or Black Friday, kicks off the holiday shopping season with sales events that include cyber-Monday, the day after Christmas sale, and various other Christmas sales extending into the new year. But nothing can beat the excitement of shopping the day after Christmas. Whether it’s just part of a family tradition or the promise of deep markdowns, the post-Christmas shopping day gets people away from their Christmas trees and leftovers and into major retailers and small businesses alike.

Save Money, Exchange Holiday Gifts, and Stick Up for Next Year

When shopping for your friends and family, be sure to shop online retailers you know and trust or those you can verify are trustworthy. Fraudulent online retailers pop up during the holiday season to take advantage of shoppers, but sticking to retailers and shopping apps you’re familiar with can help you avoid these scams.

Retailers like Walmart, Kohl’s, Macy’s, and Nordstrom entice shoppers with after-Christmas deals to clear out holiday items and make room for new merchandise. You can realize significant savings by taking advantage of year-end sales. You can buy for yourself, and you can also plan ahead and buy gifts for your friends and family for next year. Increase your benefits by using a TDECU credit card that offers cashback incentives.

So, what sort of things should you buy?

Exercise Equipment

Did you miss out on the Christmas Eve sale? It’s not too late to plan for your New Year’s resolution by buying last year’s exercise equipment at a deep discount. Whether you are starting a fitness regimen for the first time or you want to upgrade your treadmill, you can save big on fitness gear and equipment after Christmas.

Holiday Decorations

Stop by Home Goods or Target to buy seasonal home décor, wrapping paper, and all types of Christmas decorations at clearance prices of 70% or more. Not only will you save money, but you’ll have new holiday delights to look forward to in the coming year.

Small Appliances

Use those gift cards you received and treat yourself to the vacuum cleaner, blender, or food processor you’ve had your eye on. At the lowest prices of the year, the day after Christmas is also the perfect time to buy extras as gifts for friends and family.

Winter Clothing

As soon as Santa dashes off, prices for men’s and women’s sweaters, outerwear, and cozy socks are slashed. Pick up winter fashion for the whole family during post-holiday sales. After all, the day after Christmas is technically just five days removed from the start of winter!

Video Games and Electronics

Plan ahead and nab next year’s birthday and Christmas gifts by shopping sales at Apple and Best Buy for TVs, laptops, video games, and other small electronics. Don’t forget to check Amazon, too. They tend to offer deep discounts on video games and electronics starting the day after Christmas.
