With holiday gift lists and the party season in full swing, stores are still competing for your cash, with competitive offers on everything from toys to apparel.

Best Buy hosted a BOGO free contract offer on the recently released iPhone 7 last December, so we're looking to that store to drop another budget-busting deal toward the end of this year, too.
For apparel — which is the most discounted item after Christmas — the best sales will come from Banana Republic, Club Monaco, GAP, and French Connection, all of which had "best of the year," Editors' Choice-level sales on the day after Christmas in After-Christmas, Year-End, and Clearance sales are a great time to get a good deal, but you can also end up with a bad deal.
