Still on the Christmas shopping theme because here's an on line site to save time and money. Have you ever done the whole getting up early and racing from one mall to the next the day after Thanksgiving to get all the "Black Friday" Bargains? The reason why it's called Black Friday is because retailers would show big profits and go into the black during the holiday shopping season for which the Friday after Thanksgiving is considered to be the beginning. So for stores to make a lot of money, they need a lot of people in the stores. That's where on-line sites such as Black-Friday.net has 2007 thanksgiving specials where you can skip the stores on Black Friday and do all your shopping from home.
If there is an item like an extra memory card for a camera that you have your eye on, you can sign up in advance for email alerts to find out which store has the best deal. Currently, Staples and Best Buy are already listed and the geek that I am, I will be checking out those ads to see what I can order on line once the stores start releasing their ads. Give me my laptop, a hot cup of coffee and the ability to compare video games' prices from the on-line stores listed on www.black-friday.net and I think I will skip out of standing in lines on Black Friday. Running around on one Black Friday was enough for me!
