Holiday shopping deals and steals get better each year, but has the one day shopping sprint turned into a marathon with retailers spreading out their seasonal sales?

"Even though you will start seeing deals now they will get even lower," said retail expert Janice Lieberman.

Lieberman says Thanksgiving and Black Friday are still the greatest shopping days of the year when it comes to getting the best deals. 

"Retailers have to get you excited they want you inside the store they want those door busters they want the fever they want you to enjoy shopping seeing other people and touch merchandise which is becoming so foreign."

Some items that you can expect to be a top seller on  Black Friday are electronics, toys and clothing. Cyber Monday you can expect to see the lowest prices on computers, kitchenware and shoes.  

Leiberman says that if you plan on buying and saving big on hot ticket items then the best thing to do would be prepare before the big shopping day. 

"You need to get onto social media you need to sign up with all the stores you enjoy shopping at because they will give their loyal members added deals or select deals."

If you are on social media or don't like to coupon, then try signing up online at places like deal news. You can click on the items you want and they will send you an alert letting you know who had the lowest prices. 

"I really think if you can hold off now I know it's not so easy but if you can hold off to Thanksgiving weekend the day before the day after even Cyber Monday that's when you're going to see the lowest prices," says Leiberman.
