Still exhausted from all that Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping? Believe it or not, the time to bag a bargain is right after Christmas. That’s because — while everyone is nursing post-holiday hangovers — major retailers will be busy hosting some epic after-Santa sales. So if you missed out on a few things during gift-shopping madness, embrace your real last chance to save big.
The reason for all these after-Christmas sales is simple. “Retailers need to clear out the holiday items to make way for the next season,” BlackFriday.com’s shopping expert, Mackenzie Shand, confirms to Yahoo Life. “So you can save big during the after-Christmas clearance sales. During this time, there are also plenty of end-of-year sales as well as semi-annual events.”
How to score the best after-Christmas deals
So what’s the smartest approach to after-Christmas sales? “Every year, December 26 is a great time to stock up on holiday decorations, Christmas trees, seasonal gift wraps and holiday treats,” says Shand. “You can also find savings on winter clothing and holiday gift sets on December 26, making it the perfect time to save on gifts for family and friends with winter birthdays — or even treat yourself.”
Rakuten’s Retail and Shopping Expert, Kristen Gall, suggests focusing on “electronics, which will definitely be on the steepest discounts, as well as clothes (such as winter jackets, accessories, etc.), exercise equipment and shoes.”
Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon have you covered on after-Christmas electronics deals. Their earbud and earphone deals alone are not to be missed. And deals are already under way. Best Buy just took $30 off the Google Pixel Buds A-Series True Wireless In-Ear Headphones (now $60), Walmart has knocked nearly 30% off Samsung Buds+ True Wireless Headphones and Amazon is offering $80 off the coveted Bose QuietComfort 45 Bluetooth Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones.

Best after-Christmas TV deals
If you were waiting for gift-shopping season to pass so you could upgrade your own home theater, consider these after-Christmas TV deals your golden opportunity. “Many retailers find themselves with a surplus of inventory at the end of the month, which will inevitably lead to deeper discounts in hopes of clearing out the shelves for next season’s items,” says Shand. Make way for those new TV models by taking these sets off their hands.
