If you feel you missed out on the deals on Cyber Monday and Black Friday, don't worry. There are plenty of stores still offering bargains around the web, and many of them are the same discounts as advertised after Thanksgiving.
American Apparel: Until December 13, the site is offering 50% off of all sweaters with the promo code KNITS.
Madewell: From today until December 14, you can get 20% off your entire purchase or 30% off your purchase of $200 or more. Use the code SPLURGE at checkout.

Amazon launched its “12 Days of Deals” promotion on Sunday, listing new discounts on items each day. On Tuesday, deals included 20% off of the Amazon Fire HD 6 and 67% off a Black & Decker cordless vacuum. Toys are discounted up to 70%. Best Buy has a similar promotion with its Deals of the Day. Tuesday’s deals include $15 off a refurbished Google Chromecast and 57% off of the Logitech Harmony home entertainment remote.
Walmart is offering discounts of about 20% to 30% off popular XBox and PlayStation games. You can get a PlayStation 4 bundle with the Star Wars Battlefront game for $299. On Black Friday, they offered a similar deal with the game Uncharted for the same price.
Other retailers are offering gift card promotions with purchases. Target, for example, is giving away a free $100 gift card with every Apple Watch purchase (until December 25th), the same deal it offered on Black Friday. These gift card promos are especially popular with food chains. Morton's Steakhouse, you get a free $50 gift card when you purchase $250 in gift cards. P.F. Chang's is offering a similar promotion: buy $100 in gift cards and you get a $20 gift card for free. Both deals are valid until December 24th.
But before you jump on something advertised as a "deal," it's worth checking to see if it really is one. Online historical price trackers can tell you whether the savings are a true low for the year or if the price went up just before Thanksgiving to make the savings appear steeper than they really are.
