the best deal is buying something you can afford that you know the person will like. No sale can beat that. Not everyone likes perfume

Interesting that Christmas is such a big deal given that Christians are less than 10% of the population in Malaysia.
On the other hand, I certainly know lots of Muslims who celebrate Christmas just for the presents. :)
I think that January is really better if you are looking for good deals.

The Christmas season is always a good time to get perfume gift sets.
Also many clothing stores are discounting their clothes.

The sales will get better closer to Christmas as retail shops try to reduce stock before the end of year inventory. So, a sweater that is marked down 30% for Black Friday may be marked down to 50% the days leading up to Christmas.
I believe many people will be purchasing items closer to the holiday to snag those last minute sales and mark downs.
Even in Malaysia, you'll be seeing a lot of sales. That's because the retail stores will be doing everything they can to encourage you to spend your money.

Hey, glad you got the carrier bags! We get better bargains after Christmas in UK, although more and more shops are starting their sale shortly before Christmas to try and tempt last minute shoppers.

I think they artificially inflate prices so they can call it a sale when Christmas comes. In other words the "sale" price is the price they wanted to receive in the first place.
Here on the US, we have tons of sales going on. And the Friday after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday because it's the day most retailer get their stores profitable. They usually offer crazy deals to coincide with the day. Personally, I don't stalk those deals out. I find out what my husband wants ad if I am able to get a deal or sale, great. If not, that's okay.
Everything seems to be on sale now in Malaysia!!!!
This is the best time to get expensive perfume because now they come in Christmas packs! Where you can get a shower gel or body lotion added on with your perfume for no extra charge! Only during the Christmas season! Same with makeup! But they do have some marketing tricks to get you to spend more, like a purchase with purchase deal!
I also got some nice earrings because jewellery was also on sale! I also got some nice paper carrier bags to put my needlework in! What about in your part of the world? Does everything seem to be on sale now!? Please share!
