If you think you're out of time to find huge deals on great gifts in time for Christmas - you're wrong.
Here with insider tips on how to get the biggest savings on what's left on your holiday list is Sara Skirboll, Shopping & Trends Expert for RetailMeNot.com.

TIP 1: LAST MINUTE DEALS

For those who truly take last minute shopping literally, take advantage of true last minute deals. Macy’s, for example, has a deal for $20 cashback for your online purchase of $50 or more from Christmas Day until the 27th. If you don’t expect to see the gift recipient until after the holidays, you can save some serious money by holding out.

TIP 2: SEARCH FOR PROMO CODES

Sites like RetailMeNot.com can help you score extra savings when you need it most. Right now, JCPenney is offering up to 20% off in-store and online and a $15 coupon with every $50 spent in-store.

TIP 3:  BUY A DISCOUNTED GIFT CARD

Imagine going to the bank and exchanging $90 for a $100 bill. You’re doing just that when you purchase a discount gift card. It’s a win-win situation: gift cards are the most requested gift item each year, and you can buy them for only a fraction of the face-value price.

TIP 4: USE CREDIT CARD POINTS FOR GIFTS

Watching your credit card points build up may be fun, but if you’re like many folks, you’re not sure what to do with them. Consider using those points to order gift cards to give as gifts or to fund your holiday shopping trips.

TIP 5: BUY ONE GET ONE FREE

Take advantage of BOGO deals to cross more than one person off your shopping list. Check out Things Remembered for Buy One, Get One 50% + 20% off and free shipping through December 31st.
