I’m stoked. I love this time of year, especially November. I cannot wait for the great Cyber Monday 2014 deals this time around. Every year since the first Cyber Monday has been better than the previous. This year I’m better prepared for it since I’ve managed to save enough money to actually buy more than just a couple of items. While I don’t have any plans to buy any large purchases, I do want to take advantage of some of the deals that Amazon typically has! I would love to pick up a new Kindle reader and maybe even one of their Fire tablets.
Ever since Cyber Monday began I have stopped shopping on Black Friday. I think more and more consumers are beginning to choose Cyber Monday over Black Friday as their ideal shopping day. With more shops beginning to open up later in the day on Thanksgiving, I feel like this is in direct response to Cyber Monday. They know that they are losing out on money to be made because of the competition posed by Cyber Monday as the generation raised with the Internet has become the modern consumer with a greater dislike of brick and mortar entities.
It’s a bummer that physical store fronts are forcing their employees to work on a day that they should be able to enjoy with their families. It’s one of the few holidays that many of us are able to see family that we haven’t all year and we should be able to enjoy it to its fullest. I hope that Costco and the other companies that are keeping their doors shut on Thanksgiving are able to inspire, or at least guilt, other stores in doing the same. They are truly a company that should be admired by all Americans.
