Savvy Saver: Holiday Shopping Tips
Make a holiday budget and a payback plan – To start, make a list of the people you need to shop for this year – don’t forget family, friends, teachers, neighbors, and co-workers. Decide how much you can afford to spend on each person. If you’ll be using a credit card to do some of your shopping, factor in how much you’ll need to pay back after the holidays. If you can’t afford to pay the balance off in full, calculate how much you will need to pay each month to get your holiday purchases paid off. The faster you can pay down your credit card charges, the less interest you’ll pay.
Research your big ticket items before you purchase them – Search your items online to find the lowest prices. When you are ready to make the purchase, search for a promo or discount code for that store to get extra savings.
Time your purchases to save more – Electronics are usually cheaper on Black Friday, and clothing tends to go on sale on Cyber Monday. If you have fitness and activewear or bedding on your holiday shopping list, consider buying gift cards for these items because they typically go on sale in January. Your gift recipient can get more at a lower price if they shop after the holidays.
Download store apps to get exclusive discounts – Many stores offer extra discounts and rewards if you shop with their app.
Use your Visa® Power Card™ and Advantages Visa Debit Card™ for your holiday shopping and rack up double the rewards points, November 10 – December 31, 2023. Sign up at uecu.org/doublepoints beginning October 23rd.
Choose curbside pickup – You can save on shipping fees at checkout by selecting “in-store” or “curbside” pickup. Some stores even offer extra discounts when you use these options.
Don’t wait until the last minute – with so many people doing their holiday shopping online, try to do your shopping as early as possible to avoid shipping delays. If your package does get delayed, print out a picture and put it inside their card so they know something special is on the way.
For the fussy people on your list, buy them a gift card for their favorite place – Cash in your VantagePoints™ and choose from dozens of plastic or digital gift cards from our Reward Link Catalog. For details and a listing of gift cards, visit uecu.org/vantagepoints. If you live close to the UECU headquarters in Wyomissing, PA, you can also purchase Visa gift cards in the lobby.
Instead of a gift, create an experience for your loved ones – Use the UECU Member Perks App to find local and national deals on travel, events, restaurants, and entertainment.2
Make a donation. If you can’t find a gift for that person who has everything, consider donating to a charity in their name. Let them know what you did by writing a personalized note or sending them an email confirmation of your online donation.
