If you are anything like me, I steer clear of the Black Friday shopping frenzy because NOTHING is worth waking up at 4am and fighting the crowds for–plus personally I think the whole concept is a psychological marketing trick of more hype than substance. However, I must admit that I was curious this year, so I did venture out at 11am to shop, and honestly there were no great bargains to be had and the crowds were minimal.
In contrast to Black Friday, Cyber Monday has tremendous appeal. From the comfort of your own home, you can scour cyberspace for the best deals around, no crowds, no lines, and no nonsense. You might fare better if you are tech savvy, but there are plenty of bargains to be found.
So in honor of this special day, I would like to share a few special offers from some of my favorite brands that are definitely worth checking out:
