Amazon’s After-Christmas Sale: Echo Dot, Robotic Vacuums and More
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are not the only days to save on the hottest products of the year. Amazon’s after-Christmas deals start on Dec. 26 and extend to New Year’s Eve. This is an excellent time to take advantage of clearance items, as well as sizeable markdowns. You’ll find substantial savings on everything from electronics to home goods to movies and video games.
Here’s a list of the most popular items that you’ll likely get for a lower price from Amazon during its after-Christmas sale.
The best after-Christmas sales include Christmas wrapping and decor for you to stock up on for the next year. During Black Friday, customers were able to buy Christmas trees at 40 percent off, wreaths at a 50 percent discount and Christmas figurines at a savings of 60 percent. Once Christmas has ended, you can expect these percentages to climb even higher, as companies will want to offload the remaining merchandise to make room for new inventory.
Last year Amazon launched its very first Digital Day on Dec. 30. As one of the best after-Christmas sales online, customers saw up to 50 percent off movies, 75 percent off comics and 80 percent off video games. The sale was such a success, it’s highly likely that Amazon will entice shoppers by repeating Digital Day in 2017. Keep an eye out for these after-Christmas deals so you can save on ebooks, music downloads, TV show rentals and much more.
