Shopping News Without Leaving Home
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
And to show my thanks, I want to help you navigate this weekend, which has long been known as the biggest shopping weekend of the year.
I just ran across a fun project to help. If you are like me and would rather be anywhere except a crowded shopping mall, this site is for you. BlackFridayWatch.com is covering the mall shop-a-thon with reporters dispatched throughout the country.
If you like to shop, look to this site bf2005.com for news about all of the big deals.
And one marketing promotion that I think is really over-the-top, Macy's is offering $1 million in gift cards to those that show up to shop on Black Friday. According to the CNN Article:
Macy's spokeswoman Ronnie Taffet told CNN/Money that the gift cards will be in denominations of $10, $20, $100, $200 and $500.
“The giveaway starts when our doors open on Black Friday and while supplies last,” she said. But the lucky recipients can't redeem the cards until December 5 through December 24.
Happy shopping to you all!
