In shaky economy, dealnews expects last-minute deals to beat Black Friday.

If you’re willing to wait, you’ll be able to snag unbelievable deals and still rest assured that your gifts will arrive in time for Christmas Day. We’re even seeing some sites like ICE.com and BlueNile.com offering free shipping right up until Christmas.

Bargain-hunting guide dealnews.com (http://www.dealnews.com) is predicting that the shaky economy will make retailers desperate to lure in shoppers as Christmas nears, resulting in last-minute discounts and shipping deals that will beat last month’s Black Friday sales.

To help shoppers take advantage of last-minute savings, dealnews.com today launched its Last-Minute Friday Guide http://www.dealnews.com/lastminute, which provides shoppers with shipping deadlines – including standard and overnight – for dozens of online stores, including Amazon, Apple, BestBuy.com, Overstock, and WalMart.

The site is dubbing Friday, December 21st as "Last-Minute Friday" since it is the last day to shop online at most retailers and still have gifts shipped in time for Christmas. In addition, some sites like BestBuy.com, CircuitCity.com, Linens 'n Things (LNT.com), and OfficeDepot.com will take online orders as late as Christmas Eve for in-store pickup.

"Sometimes it pays to procrastinate and it looks like that will be especially true for this year's holiday shoppers," said Dan de Grandpre, founder and editor in chief of dealnews.com. "If you’re willing to wait, you’ll be able to snag unbelievable deals and still rest assured that your gifts will arrive in time for Christmas Day. We’re even seeing some sites like ICE.com and BlueNile.com offering free shipping right up until Christmas."

According to de Grandpre, shoppers who wait until the last minute can expect deals on many top-of-the-line gifts, including flat screen TV’s (with some likely under $1,000), GPS systems (some likely for under $120), and many of the toys on ToysRUs.com’s “Best Of” list.
