MasterCard

Discloses Best Times to Beat Holiday Shopping Rush


In the interest of making your holiday shopping easier (and

perhaps using your credit card more often?), MasterCard has

combed through past transaction data to find the best days and

times to shop if you want to avoid big crowds and long lines.

While

the Friday after Thanksgiving is often thought of as the busiest

shopping day, it was actually the sixth busiest in 2004. December

23rd was the busiest shopping day.

"Since

Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, we may see procrastinating

shoppers out in full force on Friday, December 23 and until

stores close on Saturday, December 24,? said Rob Reeg, chief

technology officer at MasterCard.

According

to MasterCard's data, early morning and late evenings are the

best times of day to shop if you want to beat the crowds.
