Key Ring Shoppers Winning Big on Last Minute Holiday Deals

Key Ring Shoppers

According to national news accounts, American shoppers are betting that the best door-busting holiday deals may still be yet to come from brick-and-mortar retailers. Deal hunters who download and use the newly improved, and free Key Ring shopping app to their smartphones are uniquely positioned to win big when that happens. Why is this the case?

 

The intelligence firm ShopperTrak recently reported a 10.4 percent decrease in in-store sales over the four-day BlackFriday weekend, signaling the elongation of the holiday shopping season.

 

Additionally, in the two weeks before Christmas, prices to ship online purchases will begin rising, according to some estimates, by 15 percent each day after December 15, providing increasing incentive to shop in-store. Eventually, on-time shipping will no longer be possible.

 

Finally, in a study released this year on December 6, by America’s Research Group, Ltd. reports that more people will literally wait until December 24th to finish their Christmas shopping, a 12-year high.

 

“Clearly shopping patterns are evolving this year,” said Key Ring CEO Chris Fagan. “If the major retailers slash prices closer to Christmas, as many shoppers are hoping and retail experts are speculating about, then deal hunters who have Key Ring on their smartphones will have a decisive edge during that last minute rush.”
