Woman Shares How You Can Save a Ton of Money at Christmas Time

Don’t go into debt over the holidays.

It's the most wonderful time of the year. You know, the time when big corporations get richer and you go deeper into credit card debt to please people who probably gave you childhood trauma.

The holiday shopping season is a stressful time. All the sales make it overwhelming and you usually end up spending more money than you intended despite that.

TikTok user Evan Thornhill (@evanthornhill09) wants you to know that you don't have to max out your credit cards while holiday shopping. She posted a video sharing a hack that can help you save money on gifts for your loved ones. It's super simple and something you can incorporate year-round.

Thornhill demonstrated that while shopping at Walmart, you can pull out your phone and navigate to the Walmart app, scan the item you want to buy and see if the store's website has a lower price. If so, you can ask your cashier to price match and save a couple of bucks. Use this method for everything in your cart and that really adds up!

While Walmart only price-matches its own website, stores like Target and Best Buy will price-match with competitors. Scanning your items with the Target app can also help you unlock hidden deals. If you're unsure if this applies to your specific location, ask an employee!

And remember, these stores are competing against each other for your money. Research the best deals and know your budget. Happy shopping!
