Thanks to DealNews.com for alerting me to Erin Conduti’s article on the DealNews.com website about the After Xmas sales and where you can get the best deals, and which deals aren’t really “deals” and you should skip!
What to Expect From After Christmas Sales in 2019
By Erin Conduti,
Here are the categories to check out during the “After Christmas Sales” in 2019.
Sales on holiday decor dominated our hottest After Christmas deals last year. While you won’t be able to make use of your purchases right away, shopping ahead for next year is the secret to spending affordably and still having the best-bedecked building on the block.
Though we tend to see a store or two offer aggressive holiday-decor deals just before Christmas — like Home Depot’s up-to-50% off sale last December 24 — these are really only good options for customers who suddenly realize their Christmas won’t be complete without an inflatable Snoopy in the front yard. If you aren’t planning on putting out your purchases immediately, wait a few more days.

Starting on December 26, we’ll likely see sales cutting up to 80% off all holiday decor, and continue to see these until just after the New Year… although pickings will get slimmer as the week wears on. Last year, we saw excellent sales from Amazon, Macy’s, Lowe’s, Hallmark, and many others. So count on being able to stock up on whatever you need, be it trees, tinsel, or trinkets.
In 2018, about a third of the post-holiday deals we saw were for clothing and accessories. Clearance items saw particularly hot sales. For example, last year we saw the best extra discount on clearance ever from J.Crew Factory, when they took an extra 60% to 70% off clearance items. We also saw aggressive After Christmas clearance sales from Cabela’s, Nordstrom Rack, Dick’s Sporting Goods, 6pm, and many others.
In 2018, about a third of the After Christmas deals we saw were for clothing and accessories.
It’s not all clearance items, however. Many stores target this period for their semi-annual sales, including Victoria’s Secret, Tory Burch, Armani Exchange, and Michael Kors.
Finally, check DealNews for great deals on individual items. Among our most popular finds last year were seven Hanes men’s boxer briefs for $9, Jos. A. Bank men’s polo shirts for $7, and Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars for $20, each with free shipping.
If you don’t find the video game deals you want before Christmas, don’t worry too much! Last year, more than half of the video game deals we saw during After Christmas sales were Staff Pick-worthy, meaning they were among our “best of the best” offers. They included titles like Titanfall 2 for Xbox One for only $4 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch for $46.
And it won’t be only individual titles on sale, either. PC gamers can shop the Steam Winter Sale, which started on December 19 and should continue through the new year. Last year, it ran from December 20 to January 3. The PlayStation Store has also launched a holiday sale, and that goes through January 5, 2020.
Last year, After Christmas sales were a great place to shop for electronics. Not only did we see tons of electronics deals, more than 40% of them got our Staff Pick designation, marking them as truly excellent.
We saw excellent deals on a wide variety of electronics, from a Sceptre 65″ 4K UHD TV for $400 to an Insignia Wave 2 portable Bluetooth speaker for $10.
Some of the very best deals were on refurbs, like a deal on a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8+ 64GB smartphone for $255 with free shipping. About 10% of the electronics deals during After Christmas sales last year were for refurbished products.

Dealnews.com is one of my favorite places to scope out the deals that I need to check out as well as “deals” that aren’t a deal and that I should skip!
