So you didn't want to brave the mall on Black Friday, your list wasn't quite ready on Cyber Monday and you forgot about Free Shipping Day. There's still one big day on the calendar - Super Saturday.
Retailers have come to learn that discounts on the final Saturday before Christmas can help clear out holiday inventory that hasn't moved yet.
Online shopping lets gift-givers avoid the last minute frenzy in stores, but the window for shipping opportunities is dwindling, and could be costly.
If you're not willing to pay those potentially steep fees, or concerned a package won't make it in time, look for a retailer with an in store pickup option when shopping online.
You won't avoid the busy parking lot, but you will bypass most of the in store traffic by going straight to the store's designated pickup spot.
And for those who really wait until the last minutes of the holiday shopping season, extended shopping hours can help, if you're willing to shop during very off hours.
Most Toys R Us stores, for example, will be open around-the-clock from Saturday morning through Tuesday evening. Some Macy's locations in major cities will stay open continuously from Friday morning through Tuesday evening.
