5 Last-Minute ETF Deals Before Christmas Eve

The holiday shopping season begins with Black Friday and officially ends with Super Saturday – the last Saturday before Christmas. Stores offer hefty discounts to last minute shoppers to generate as much revenues as possible. This year was no exception as retail analysts expect Super Saturday to have surpassed all other days in 2019.

Though we are yet to get the exact figure, this Super Saturday sales are expected to be about $34 billion, up from Black Friday’s sales of $31.5 billion. About 147.8 million people, up from 134.3 million last year, are expected to have participated in Super Saturday sale and extended store hours, according to the National Retail Federation’s new survey.

Having said this, we would like to note that customers are still on shopping spree, especially with 2019 holiday season six days shorter.
