Cyber Monday = Yet Another BS Marketing Gimmick

Cyber Monday is such a load of crap. That’s right, I said it. I’m not even going to get into Black Friday. Speaking of which, somebody please shoot me the day you see me sitting outside of Saks at 4am. I digress. After remembering that today is supposedly a great day for online shopping, I started perusing some of my favorite websites…come to find out there’s no spectacular sales going on. I’m currently shopping for furniture, so naturally I have my eyes open for a good bargain. Funny thing is, one of my favorite stores is only offering 10% off — the same offer they had last month for no reason at all. Other sites are offering “free shipping” and other standard discounts that can either be found all year long or achieved via promo codes. Yawn.

I’m a savvy shopper, so I’ll probs end up buying everything the week after Christmas because I feel like that’s when you can really score (especially since most people are making returns and profits are on the decline). Buy into the gimmicks if you will, but don’t say I didn’t forewarn you all.
