Shop Smart this Holiday Season with Tips from CTBest Apartments


5 Smart Shopping Tips for the HolidayAccording to a recent study published by Accenture Research, American shoppers are expecting to spend an average of $718 on holiday gifts this year, with 36 percent of shoppers planning to keep a tighter budget between $251 and $500. So, how can you make your dollar stretch this season? With six apartment communities located in prime shopping districts throughout Stamford, Hamden, Branford, and Norwalk, here is the scoop on how to get the most for your money.

  • Sign up for email alerts from your favorite retailers or stores you are most likely to purchase from. While daily marketing emails can be annoying and fill up your inbox, consider this a sneak-peak inside look at upcoming deals and specials. You may even receive coupons—and you can always unsubscribe from the list later.
  • Develop your budget… and stick to it! This is easier said than done, which is why this Holiday Budget Calculator will help you map out your expectations (based on category) in advance.
  • Beat the crowd! Not interested in pressing through stores and being shoulder-to-shoulder with thousands of people on Black Friday? Stay home in your pajamas and get everything you need by shopping online. No hustle, no bustle, and no pressure to purchase based on impulse.
  • Compare prices using your smart phone by downloading an app like RedLaser or PriceGrabber. Scan a barcode or QR code while you’re in-store and quickly compare prices to make sure you’re getting the best deal. You can also sign up for price alerts, which will notify you if/when an item you are interested in has been marked down to your desired price.
  • Coupon like a pro. Whether you’re online or in-store shopping, check out sites like RetailMeNot, or Slickdeals to get coupon codes and hear what other shoppers are saying about their recent purchases and deals.
