I'm -- the after the show show Bryan's gonna leave.
Much 'cause he's gonna -- do his clipboard make you think -- it is a place we've got Andrea war.
She is a consumer savings expert and she's always get some great tips on shopping.
In this case last minute shopping or one week to go before Chris Aybar out I have plenty of time right anytime I -- Steve admittedly is -- procrastinated here.
Every year says he shops on Christmas you -- -- at -- boys.
And you find some -- does get some -- -- my wife doesn't have.
-- that she -- really wants we'll be still find deals on Christmas you know what interestingly yes you can find some things -- what I recommend to is doing some online shopping you can sending gift cards.
Gift cards directly to the recipients.
Via email or even social media.
And you can go online to find discount gift cards to send electronically from gift card grainy dot com site helps you save a little bit of money.
Some other -- are greening.
Yes and we -- -- and it's -- you're talking about like when when I go to Costco policy.
If you want our hundred dollar Cheesecake Factory gift cards right it is like seventy dollars.
Yeah exactly -- get a discount off that.
And then of course and when you going to store retailers are going to be trying to push that inventory out there making room for that that stuff -- in January and so they're going to be huge -- so.
You may have to battle the crowds and -- minds but there will definitely be deals to be had on that day -- -- people are watching two day yesterday.
Was free shipping.
-- day in in my life -- like to find every -- since it yes then that is the standard you know there -- it's kind of crazy to pay its -- something's -- be like twenty bucks to ship them like no can do right I don't fly.
But if people missed out on this what -- -- So there are over thirty retailer still offering free shipping with guaranteed delivery by Christmas and now you have to review those deadlines because some are expiring today some -- expire tomorrow and -- will expire on the twentieth I think Nordstrom actually is doing it until the 21 but not a lot well.
If you go to free shipping day dot com a pop up browser comes up with all those deals.
Some retailers will be doing additional discounts on top of the free shipping which is nice.
Some may have a minimum -- -- wanna watch out for that don't spend more just -- the free shipping today.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The Czech air codes because whenever I buy something anywhere -- last -- -- -- some flowers from morning 800 flowers and I had this thing worth up 15% off -- bright -- last week.
So then -- into that and I get my 50% off and then I'm thinking I wonder if there's another went out there -- -- so I just Google 1800 flower coupons and then a whole list of stuff pops up where -- OK try this -- and actually yesterday because it was free shipping day I get a bigger discount but -- kinda have to choose which of the two.
Yes coupon -- you gonna get to you.
There are some retailers that actually allow you to stop coupons where they may allow you to use more than one coupon -- quarter which is nice but some actually won't allow you to do it goes and headed they kinda got samarra on that.
But it's a than you do want it it should figure out which -- be -- bigger discount is that the percent off or is the shipping charge to sometimes the shipping charge.
Maybe more than that discounts it anyway -- -- -- -- hours it was fifteen bucks -- so it's like out that often that so much better deal exactly person yes thank you say this is something that I admittedly.
My name is Gretchen Carlson and I don't clear cookies.
What do I need to do long.
So does cookie is -- on your computer send data from your computer to web -- that your visiting.
And now retailers use that data to track your browsing patterns your purchase histories and other information like that.
And -- may set prices based on that.
On the use dynamic pricing which is -- a brilliant -- prices so -- go to Amazon which I do almost every day.
And they're gonna snow set prices different for me than for Steve if he goes once -- week.
They may because they use dynamic pricing which is an approach to maximize profitability.
In I DN that on the charging customers whatever price they are willing to pay for our service or product so if you historically get paid -- -- -- dollars for something.
-- -- they wanna maximize the profitability by making sure that you get charged that price.
And the scary thing is when you let's say -- at Amazon.
But the a minute ago you were at Nordstrom's dot com or Overstock.Com.
You can actually tell all the website you bend you backwards so that.
-- -- able to train though -- -- and marketing at central less -- the of these analytical tools assist you they'll use the same select -- is using the same people is as Amazon they'll using they have similar analytical -- yeah I mean they're different agency here that specialize it's all about them making the -- so what they're doing -- you look at it okay they were at these four sites they didn't buy it at this price so right that's where the dynamic pricing and it's a big casinos like any.
Yes it -- I don't clear cookies yet so you can you can clear I don't -- -- yeah it's easy -- -- -- -- -- -- -- do it.
That's why it's very important to to track price says so Amazon.com an -- guests on.
Change the price on a microwave a -- my grade nine times throughout the day if you purchased at the high time you're spending over 125.
So -- you know how do you know when you're getting the best price well if you track the price is using a site like huckster each NKK -- TR.
It will alert she'll send you an email to win that.
Product goes on sale or when it's -- you can also use a price predictor site called the site dot com.
It uses historical data to tell you various pricing patterns for that product and so you can now well -- this is this the lawless it could possibly be.
OK now I just so I bought some flights and then I realized today and just went online to see.
Remind myself with the time Blanton like.
Well holy -- brutal it's cheaper now than when I bought it two days ago right do I have a right to.
To call them up and say I want this -- now that if it is the same not flights with the same seats and everything.
-- you do you have the right -- -- it asked for a flight credits on which they would allow you to use -- the future purchase and now.
Airlines have -- that while most well known industry -- company or industry that has been using dynamic pricing.
And so it's simply something that you do wanna track and act -- is a service that helps you track those flight prices that something that you stuff bodies and all that.
Why -- PT day.
Historically Tuesday is the cheapest in the 3 PM race start -- -- they are you going wait a minute stats and -- is by day.
-- yeah these though.
Now maybe -- it's too you know and it accidentally on a couple of weeks ago I noticed that.
Four five day period and my father noticed this as well.
That flights just jumped up a hundred dollars and then after that we noticed that they went back down and I think it may be that airline -- -- people buying gift certificates.
Of where that airline and they wanted them to maximize by researching different -- and want our peoples are freaking out about knocking the tickets -- time for Christmas yet exactly right.
And people just as a family generally buy the tickets on the weekends and so that's when they go up a little bit and then they go up as -- on Monday because that's when.
