    Want to burn a few gift cards. Are the best sales before Christmas or the days after Christmas?

    I would say it depends on what you are looking for. Yesterday I used my $10 coupon at JCPenney and got a regularly $36 pair of pants for $2.99 + tax as they were on sale for $12.99.

    If you are looking for gift sets, definitely look for after Christmas sales as they usually go on sale for 50% off.

    The other rule of thumb that I recommend is DON'T return anything the day after Christmas. You can get the best 1/2 deals that day due to the fact that so many people are in the FOREVER return line while all the die-hard shoppers are scooping up the best deals!!!

    Ooops, I think I just gave my shopping secrets away!! Hope this helps.

    Have fun spending all those gift cards!

    I think you get the best choice before Christmas, and the best deals after.

    The days after a holiday are the best Usually at least 50 per cent off the first day and increasing to 90 per cent off a few days later. HMB

    Appreciate the advice. Normally I find the day after Christmas has the best selection and the prices might decrease by New Years however the selection is slim.

    I've found that the best deals to be had are at the end of January and/or early February.
