Black Friday 2016 news!

Our 2017 Black Friday Primer!

The entire holiday period can be rather daunting, and the stress of shopping certainly does plenty to add to that feeling that you just won’t be able to keep up. And so, as we do every year, we’ve put together a few tips to make the entire process a little easier. Though in previous years […]

Amazon Prime Reading Kicks Off!

Consistent with the way Amazon does things, Amazon didn’t just raise their shipping minimum, thereby encouraging (naysayers might say “forcing”) their shoppers to purchase an annual Prime Membership. They gave all of us more for that money. As we suspected, the small riot sized “freakout” we saw when the online retailer upped the price, they’ve […]

Amazon Prime Day July 12th, 2016!

Why Free Shipping Day Fell Flat

We’re all for when it comes to promotions, but we can be rather skeptical at times. Unfortunately, that’s the nature of the online shopping “beast.” And as with any profession, experience allows you to see through the bombastic claims of the offending source. More than most, we understand competition as well. There are thousands of […]

How Walmart Won Black Friday

The 2015 Holiday Season was in a winner in many ways. According to the National Retail Federation, the total number of dollars spent in November was up just half a percentage point over those in October, but concluded that this was because prices were lower than ever, and shoppers were getting more for their money […]

Shopping, Redefined

Though the signs were pointing in that direction, what we’re watching is still rather surprising. Some might argue that we’re saying goodbye to a tradition, and that the obvious new course of retail shopping, put on display like a neon sign on the Vegas strip, will leave us devoid of an experience. While chatting with […]
