dealnews expects last-minute deals to equal or beat
Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales
(December 12, 2006) – Mark your calendars for December 21st, which dealnews (www.dealnews.com) is dubbing "Last Minute Thursday," the final day you can shop online and still have gifts shipped in time for Christmas.
Proving that it can pay to procrastinate, dealnews (http://dealnews.com) is launching special features aimed at guiding shoppers to last minute sales, which dealnews predicts will equal or beat last month's Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions.
To help shoppers take advantage of the sales, dealnews unveiled a Last Minute Shipping Guide (http://dealnews.com/lastminute), an overview of shipping deadlines – including standard and overnight – for dozens of online stores, including Amazon, Apple, BestBuy.com, Overstock, and WalMart.
Named one of the best services of 2006 by PC World, dealnews is the Web's most trusted guide to the best deals on electronics, computers, gadgets, men's apparel, and more.
According to dealnews editor in chief Dan de Grandpre, shoppers who wait until next week can expect major deals on the season's hottest gifts, including LCD TVs, GPS products, and digital photo frames. de Grandpre also predicts that the latest iPods will drop 15% below suggested retail price.
Other last minute dealnews features include:
Unlike most shopping comparison sites, which only tout prices from advertisers, dealnews' editors screen hundreds of specials every day and only post those that pass the dealnews test: Is it the guaranteed lowest price and is it sold by a reputable store?
"We've found that if you're willing to wait, you'll be able to get unbelievable deals and still have the peace-of-mind that your gifts will arrive in time for Christmas Day," said de Grandpre. "Our goal is to make last-minute shopping simple, stress-free, and easy on the wallet."
