Christmas Eve will be here in a matter of hours. That means if you still have things on your shopping list, you'd better act fast to ensure they arrive in time.

Not to worry, though — not only are there a ton of holiday sales available at most retailers, but many are also offering in-store pickup for online orders. I've searched Best Buy, Walmart and Target for the best deals that offer in-store pickup. In case you need a few examples, Best Buy is offering Switch games from $14, Walmart has 4K TVs from $88 and Target has Christmas ornaments and decorations from $3. It's also worth noting that while Amazon doesn't have physical stores, if you're a Prime member you can get certain devices mailed with same-day delivery. Log into your Prime account and check out their holiday deals section to see which items can be expedited. 

Keep scrolling for more of my favorite sales. For more, check out the best deals in Best Buy's holiday sale.
