    Knowing the secrets to finding the best deals on holiday gift purchases will help shoppers to get the best value out of their shopping experience. To help shoppers create a successful holiday shopping strategy Steve Kemble, America’s sassiest lifestyle guru, will help you become the master of your holiday shopping with these tips and more.

    • Subscribe to your local mall’s mailing list. Find out about the hottest deals first by joining the mailing list of your local mall. You may be alerted of any upcoming sales, receive coupons to get the best deals on your holiday purchases, and find out first about special in-mall promotions such as special Black Friday events.

    • Buy Early and Late: Be a savvy shopper and buy gifts throughout the year when you find a good sale. By planning ahead and crossing some items off your list before the holidays, you can avoid feeling pressured into last-minute purchases and find a few gifts during late-season sales when some stores offer deeper discounts.

    • Buy Last Year’s Model: Skip the lines and the steep prices by buying last year’s model on electronics that have likely seen up to 30 percent price cuts. Do your research and find out if those extra pixels or special features are essential for the person you are shopping for. If you pay close attention, you may find that last year’s model does 95% of the things that this year’s model does, but at 70% of the price.

    • Comparison Shop: Organization is key in a successful holiday shopping strategy. Start a list of items you need to purchase and watch for ads in the newspaper, on television, and in your mall subscription alerts starting in early November. Then make your purchases wherever you find the best deals or most compelling promotions.
