If you're hoping to do all of your holiday shopping with a few clicks of the keyboard, Cyber Monday's for you.
“I think it’s still kind of an undercover nerd thing,” retail veteran Lauren Copeland told CL's Joe Bardi in a story that ran in the Nov. 24 print edition of CL. “You’re going to get better deals, you’re not going to have to deal with the crowd, you’re not going to have to find parking. You can be in your pajamas at home sipping coffee shopping on Cyber Monday.”
For the inside scoop, Lauren suggests checking out dealnews.com, a clearinghouse of all the best deals online nationally and from local merchants. Lauren says she’s addicted, but seeing as she also scored a 47-inch Vizio TV for about $350 last Cyber Monday, it’s an addiction that actually pays her back.
And here's another way to spend your cyber shopping time on Monday: Score some great deals and help a good cause by bidding in Creative Loafing's Online Holiday Auction for the benefit of The Children's Home.
