Here’s a quick shorthand: Kohl’s has arguably the strongest sales this year (dedicated store guide), Walmart has the best iPhone deals this year and Best Buy (dedicated store guide) tops Samsung Galaxy deals.  Amazon runs hot on its own products and never runs out of stock (dedicated store guide), but watch for last minute ‘Lightning Deals’. The biggest letdowns this year are Target, Costco and Sam’ Club.

I’ve noticed that even the shopping experience at Sam’s Clubs in my area are horrendous with forklifts running through the day and employees pushing carts around you. I actually got a huge cut in the back of my ankle from one of the Sam’s Clubs employees and the manager just said that I should come earlier in the morning when it’s slower. This experience actually converted me over to Costco.
