How to Make Huge Savings


The USA does things bigger: cars, food, vacations, and online shopping. We do it better than the rest of the world, which will continue to be the case this year. Online spending is set to explode, and there’s an opportunity for you to spend more without spending more…

If your New Year's resolution was to save money, here’s some ideas. 

I’ve created this comprehensive guide with every major online sale this year. Feel free to bookmark it, print it out, or stick it to your fridge; up to you.

However, before we get there, let’s talk about how you can get ahead of these deals long before they go live. So, when the time comes to shop, you’re loaded with gift cards that’ll mean massive savings on the day. Here’s how:


  1. Join LifePoints

LifePoints works with some of the USA’s biggest brands to gather opinions on how you, the consumer, feel about their products. These are done as surveys, and when you fill in a survey, you earn points, or ‘LifePoints’.


  1. Swap your LifePoints for Gift Cards

The more surveys you do – the more LifePoints you earn. The more LifePoints you earn – the more gift cards you get. It’s that easy. It’s a great side hustle you can do in your spare time and on the go using our app. 


  1. Use your Gift Cards During the Online Sale

If you’re a LifePoints member, you can combine your gift cards with the sales and score incredible deals, often getting your goods for free. So, sign up and get 10 points immediately. Then, start your survey journey, and when the online sale day goes live, you can take massive advantage of the discounts in combination with your gift cards.

You can earn rewards from top e-commerce brands like PayPal and Amazon. As well as famous high-street retailers, including Macy’sStarbucks and more.



Sales Day 1: Boxing Day

When: December 26 –  January 1

Boxing Day Sales are a significant retail event in the US, marking the start of the post-Christmas discount season. Historically, this day was when servants received gifts from their employers, known as "Christmas boxes," hence the name 'Boxing Day.' 

Over time, it evolved into a significant shopping holiday akin to Black Friday. It's an ideal time for consumers to snag deals on items that were perhaps too pricey before Christmas or to spend their holiday gift vouchers.

If you join LifePoints today, it means by the time Boxing Day sales start at the end of the year, you could already have hundreds of $’s earned. 

Sales Day 2: New Year’s Day

When: January 1

The New Year’s Day sales are a one-day-only event on the first of Jan and a continuation of Boxing Day sales – usually blending into one.

Following the festive frenzy of December, these sales offer consumers attractive discounts across various categories, including electronics, fashion, and home goods. It's a chance for shoppers to grab deals on items for the upcoming year.

Again, if you fill in enough surveys this year, you could stock up massively for the year ahead. 



Sales Day 3: Valentine's Day Sales

When: Early Feb 

Valentine's Day sales in the US are a cornerstone of early-year retail, capitalising on the spirit of romance and affection. Around this day, retailers offer various deals, especially on traditional gifts like jewellery, chocolates, flowers, and romantic getaways. 

These sales cater to those looking to express love through thoughtful presents, supplying a range of options from luxurious items to more affordable yet meaningful alternatives. Online and brick-and-mortar stores take part, often starting promotions in early February. 

Sales Day 4: Presidents Day Sales

When: 19 Feb

Presidents Day, a federal holiday commemorating the leaders of the United States, is also an opportune time for shoppers to find significant savings. This day is marked by substantial discounts at major retailers, including Amazon and Walmart, particularly on high-ticket items such as large appliances, mattresses, and expensive electronics. Presidents Day this year is anticipated to offer substantial deals on a wide array of much-loved products as one of the early major shopping events of the year.

Sales Day 5: St Patrick's Day

When: 17 March

On March 17, the United States celebrates St. Patrick's Day, when many eateries and bars offer special deals and promotions. Expect deals like complimentary doughnuts at Krispy Kreme and the famous Shamrock Shake at McDonald's. The earliest recorded St. Patrick's Day parade in America dates back to 1601 in St. Augustine, Florida. An Irish parish priest declared St. Patrick as the guardian of the city's cornfields. Subsequently, Irish immigrants brought the St. Patrick's Day celebration tradition to America. By the 1750s, cities like Boston and New York City began hosting their parades. For those with an appetite for festive fare, this day promises various savings and delicious treats in honor of St. Paddy's.



Sales Day 6: Easter

When: 7-10 April

Easter sales are probably the most underrated and under the radar, but in our experience, one of the best. Last year saw thousands of American businesses participate, with millions of dollars saved by thousands of shoppers. Also, don’t forget the huge savings on chocolate on Easter Sunday.



Sales Day 7: Mother’s Day Sales

When: 14 May

It's a great time to spoil mom (or yourself), with retailers nationwide offering special deals and discounts. These sales encompass a wide range of products, from jewellery and fashion to home appliances and beauty products, catering to the diverse interests of moms nationwide.

Sales Day 8: Memorial Day Sales

When: 27 May

The observance of Memorial Day as a time for remembrance began in 1888 when the federal government granted Civil War veterans a day off to pay tribute to their fallen comrades. In 1873, New York became the first state to declare Memorial Day a legal holiday, on May 30th annually, regardless of the weekday. In 1971, Memorial Day was shifted to the last Monday in May to provide a long weekend for employees. This change paved the way for increased travel during this period, which, in turn, boosted consumer spending. Macy’s Memorial Day savings are legendary, and with LifePoints, you can save thousands of dollars through your Macy’s gift cards.

Sales Day 9: eBay Plus Weekend

When: 24 – 31 May (exact dates TBC)

eBay Plus Weekend, a yearly exclusive event for subscribers, usually spans a week, starting on a Friday. The previous year's sale kicked off on May 24 and concluded on May 31. Shoppers are treated to a standard 20% reduction on many products, alongside short-duration offers that slash prices by as much as 80%. As LifePoints members are rewarded with eBay gift cards, the potential for savings is incredible. 



Sales Day 10: Father’s Day

When: 16 June

While Father's Day is officially on the 16th, sales leading up to it will kick off weeks in advance. Expect hundreds of dad-friendly deals online, with dozens of opportunities to use your gift cards to treat the old man (or yourself, why not). 



Sales Day 11: Independence Day

When: July 4th

Before you fire up the BBQ or let off a few fireworks, check out sites like Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Amazon, which will all have their own 4th of July sales events. There are usually massive savings through summer clearances on casual clothes, shoes and electronics. 

Sales Day 12: Amazon Prime Day

When: 11-12 July

Amazon Prime Day offers impressive gaming, home goods, and technology savings. This event primarily targets Amazon Prime subscribers, but non-members can access these deals. This year, Prime Day is scheduled for July 11-12. 

If you’ve been with LifePoints for the year so far, you’d have possibly thousands of dollars in Amazon gift cards to spend on Prime Day!



Sales Day 13: International Charity Day

When: 11-12 July

International Charity Day was established in 2012 by the United Nations, this special day is dedicated to highlighting the significance of acts of kindness, volunteerism, and philanthropic efforts. Aligning with the commemoration of Mother Theresa's passing, it serves as a reminder and celebration of how charitable deeds can play a vital role in reducing poverty, addressing emergency situations, and enhancing governmental services.

This isn’t an online sales day, but we’re including it because we think it’s a great time to share the rewards you’ve earned with someone a little less fortunate. In the States, we work with The Red Cross, WWF, the American Cancer Society and UNICEF on charitable drives and initiatives.


Sales Day 14: Columbus Day

When: 14 October

With the onset of winter, major retail chains such as Walmart, Target, and Macy's are gearing up to attract customers through seasonal promotions on winter apparel, like sweaters, scarves, hats, and coats. And, in anticipation of the festive season, keep an eye out for ads announcing offers on home essentials like furniture, mattresses, recliners, and more, perfect for preparing your home for holiday guests. Don't forget to consider convenient payment options like layaway plans and interest-free payment schemes for more expensive purchases.

Sales Day 15: Amazon Prime Big Deal Days

When: 10-11 October

Like Prime Day, Amazon’s end-of-year sales are 65 hours of unbeatable deals. Another excellent opportunity to build up LifePoints ahead of time is to swap for Amazon gift cards, meaning you could save thousands of dollars. 



Sales Day 16: Thanksgiving

When: 28 November

Thanksgiving sales are a bustling period of retail excitement, marking the start of the holiday shopping season. Shoppers eagerly anticipate significant discounts on various products, from electronics and fashion to home goods and toys. Online and in-store retailers compete to offer the best deals, often opening early or extending hours to accommodate the customer surge. It's a time for savvy consumers to snag great bargains and for retailers to kick off their most profitable sales period of the year.

Combining Thanksgiving sales with gift cards you’ve earned on LifePoints? The savings could be crazy.

Sales Day 17: Black Friday

When: 26 November

What more needs to be said about Black Friday? Not much. Long story short, the best day for online shopping. If you’ve been earning LifePoints this year, you could do all your Christmas shopping until 2028 with all the money you could save!

Sales Day 18: Cyber Monday

When: 28 November

Cyber Monday offers excellent opportunities to snag incredible deals. It often merges with Black Friday sales on the Monday following Thanksgiving, with many brands and retailers prolonging their discounts throughout the weekend. This extension supplies ample time for shoppers to explore and enjoy the lowest prices at their preferred stores, ensuring they don't miss out on the best bargains.



Sales Day 19: Free Shipping Day

When: 14 December

Free Shipping Day is a major online retail event, typically taking place in mid-December. This one-day extravaganza promises free shipping with the assurance of delivery by Christmas Eve. Perfectly timed for last-minute Christmas shopping, it's convenient for those seeking gift ideas, particularly jewellery. This event is a boon for both procrastinators and bargain-hunters alike.

Sales Day 20: Christmas Day 

When: 25 December

Sure, by the 25th, you should have all your Christmas shopping done. But, while Santa may have come and gone, there are still loads of deals to be had. Retailers offer fantastic discounts on Christmas Day for canny shoppers like you, so why not use the most festive day of the year to fill your basket and ensure you kick off the year after this one with a bang?
