(KMOV.com) -- With Christmas less than two weeks away, online retailers are now slashing prices allowing last minute holiday shoppers to take advantage of even deeper discounts than were available on Black Friday.
New research from ZingSale.com, an online price tracking website, has found that online retailers are slashing prices by an average of 42% in popular product categories. In some cases, ZingSale.com found consumers getting better deals than those advertised on Black Friday.
"We found that on Black Friday, consumers were able to save about 34% on their purchases." says Chris Garlotta, Co-Founder of ZingSale.com, "But now online retailers are offering even bigger discounts -- with average markdowns of over 42%".
This is great news for last minute shoppers -- especially when you consider that Friday December 16th is 'Free Shipping Day' -- when over 2,000 online retailers will be offering free shipping on qualified orders.
In the final 2 weeks before Christmas some of the most deeply discounted products are:
34% off HDTVs
46% off Video Games
