Liisa Matinvesi-Bassett, New Zealand country manager for PriceSpy, says: “We understand that finding the perfect gift at Christmas can be both time consuming and costly, which is why we are sharing our top gaming predictions as well as our Christmas gift guide for tech lovers. According to our historical pricing data, for those that are looking to shop last-minute, this tactic can often offer shoppers a good chance of securing last-minute pre-Christmas bargains, as price points of goods will often drop the closer we get towards Christmas Day.”

*Historically, PriceSpy data suggests prices tend to drop closer to Christmas – source: PriceSpy.

Liisa concludes:  “But we need to remember this is no ordinary year – and retailers are still massively affected by the impacts caused by Covid-19, which could affect both Christmas stock availability and price points.

For those that haven’t yet started their Christmas shopping, the key thing to remember is to not panic buy. Instead, we encourage shoppers to use a price and product comparison site like PriceSpy.  Not only is it quick, free and easy-to-use, consumers can check stock availability to make sure products are available.

What’s more, by checking the price history on products, shoppers can feel rest assured they aren’t paying over-inflated price points – and are buying from a retailer that is offering the best deal.”
