Top 10 US Stores To Shop Holiday Sales
The holiday season is fast approaching. Now that you can ship from the USA to most countries with MyUS, the question becomes...where can you find the best sales on the coolest gifts?
When Do the Best Holiday Sales Start in the United States?
No matter what holidays you celebrate throughout the year, November and December are great months to shop big deals from US stores.
Why? The Christmas/Hanukkah shopping season is fast approaching, and that’s when American retailers start fighting for business. This means terrific deals for consumers all around the world.
What is Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday (the day after US Thanksgiving, 27 November) is traditionally the day that huge holiday sales start. Americans rush out to the stores as early as 4AM to score in-store deals.
There are also many online Black Friday deals that international shoppers can take advantage of, so be sure to check out your favorite US stores on 27 November for blowout sales! (We listed some of the best stores below.)
Cyber Monday (the first Monday after Thanksgiving, which lands on 30 November this year) is the biggest online-specific retail shopping day. But this schedule is ever-changing as retailers try to cash in by starting sales even earlier (sometimes there are pre-black Cyber Monday deals as early as October!).
What does this all mean? It means it’s a great time for deals! We’ve scoured the internet and compiled a list of our favorite online sites from the USA that offer great deals on the most-wanted gifts for the holidays. Take a look at the sites that will give you the most bang for your buck, and get a jump start on your holiday shopping!
