US Consumers Prefer Stores to Online Shopping for the Holidays

Be alert to bait-and-switch ads that are created to bring you in but push you toward more expensive items, final sales or deals that end before the day is done.

Some of us wait all year for the Black Friday shopping season, our heads filled with the promise of scoring the best price of the year on a new TV, tablet, printer, or high-tech gadget.

If you have a particular retailer that you like, watch for the release date of their Black Friday ad.

The Thanksgiving holiday is normally a time for comfort with the family but Black Friday has quickly become more of a black hole, sucking in everyone's gratitude and spitting out corporate greed.

Want to get a jump on Black Friday shopping? Similarly, helpful advice can be found by looking around online for directions to the better online deals, which often come within a respectable distance of the actual deals offered in brick-and-mortar storefronts.

"With so much attention focused on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, many retailers may overlook Sofa Sunday-an influential shopping day", said Curtis Tingle, chief marketing officer, Valassis, in the release.

Unfortunately, the incidences and cases of diabetes are increasing every year donning the garb of a potential epidemic. Whole grains such as wild rice, quinoa, whole grain breads and cereals containing fiber are good for digestive health.

"This year, we updated our survey to more accurately capture consumer behavior throughout the entire shopping weekend - Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday", NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said.

Is the price really a good discount? The new BBB #AdTruth campaign highlights bad ads and helps you learn to identify the most common schemes and cons. A smart phone or other electronic device may go on sale for a record low price on Black Friday, but that doesn't mean the price won't tumble even further as the end of the year approaches.

Argos's Fast Track delivery service offers customers same-day home delivery in as little as four hours for just £3.95 and covers more than 90 per cent of the country. In our top 10 Amazon Black Friday 2017 deals we aimed to pick Black Friday deals only available in the Amazon Black Friday 2017 sale, kicking off on Friday, Nov. 17. The survey indicated that 88% of 18-to-34-year-olds plan to shop on Cyber Monday versus 74% of 35-to-54-year-olds and 52% of consumers 55 and older.
