What you need to know about the 2017 holiday shopping season

To save money on holiday purchases, money expert Clark Howard says you don’t need to wait until Black Friday! He says the deals will start around Halloween and run until December 10.

Clark also has a warning for Amazon shoppers: Beware of fake sales the week of Thanksgiving!

“Amazon has a bad habit of putting things on sale Thanksgiving week that are non-sale sales,” Clark told listeners of The Clark Howard Show Podcast. 

Don’t get ripped off! Always comparison shop to see if Amazon’s price is truly a deal.
