Black Friday And Cyber Monday Come Early!

I’ve never been one to shop in stores on Black Friday.  The idea of being trampled to death over a big screen TV doesn’t appeal.  I’m more of an online shopper anyway (duh) so I usually take advantage of the Cyber Monday deals.  Lately retailers have been under fire for opening earlier and earlier for Black Friday (many even ruining Thanksgiving for their employees).  So this year, many are starting to offer their best deals NOW.

I’m going to keep this list updated for you all to peruse.  You know my goal is to always find you the best deal on everything!  Let’s get this party started!  I’ll kick off the season on 12/1/14 with my holiday gift guide 2014 edition.  You won’t want to miss it!

Walmart Savings Catcher Review

Walmart Savings Catcher Review

Walmart Savings Catcher Review

SponsoredI wrote this Walmart Savings Catcher review for Crowdtap #WMTSavingsCatcher. All opinions are my own.

I was asked to give Walmart’s Savings Catcher a trial, and it was easy to say yes. The Walmart near my home is HUGE–a superstore–and they always have something I need!  I consider myself an expert shopper.  Shopping smart usually requires shopping in MANY different stores, and remembering which retailer offers the best deal on each item.  The new Walmart Savings Catcher really piqued my interest.  What if you never needed to price compare, EVER AGAIN?  Well that would save a ton of time, right?  Keep reading to find out how to use Walmart Savings Catcher! There’s also a link to a contest at the end of this post. The grand prize is a $2,000 Walmart shopping spree! [Read more…]
