Retail experts say "Holiday Hangover Day" -- now one of the season's busiest shopping days -- promises big savings for shoppers.

If you thought the 2016 holiday shopping season was over and done, think again. Retail experts have proclaimed Jan. 3 — the first post-holiday workday — as “Holiday Hangover Day,” when shoppers can score some impressive deals on everything from jewelry to linens.

Brad’s Deals, a popular sale-tracking website, coined the phrase “Holiday Hangover Day” after noticing an increase in retail sales and a surge in online sales on the day many people return to work after the holidays. Compared with surrounding days, there was a 10 percent spike in online sales the first post-holiday workday in 2014 and a 15 percent increase last year on Jan. 5, The Washington Post reports.

Brad’s Deals spokesperson Rebecca Lehmann tells The Post:

“Shoppers are getting back into their daily routines. They’re back in the office, sitting in front of a computer again, with a list of things Santa didn’t bring and a stack of gift cards they have to spend. It’s a perfect storm that adds up to a bigger-than-usual shopping day.”

So what kinds of sales can you expect come Jan. 3? According to Brad’s Deals, some of the best deals will likely be found in these shopping categories:

  • Fitness items
  • Furniture
  • Jewelry
  • Bedding and linens
  • Holiday decor

If you don’t have a lot of time to look for great deals on Tuesday but still want to cash in on some of the holiday season’s top sales, Brad’s Deals says these are the best places to shop on Jan. 3:

Kohl’s and Macy’s, hands down. Between Kohl’s 2016 jewelry and furniture markdowns and Macy’s insane bedding sale, we have a feeling these are the retailers to watch.
