We are in it now. Black Friday, the official kick off to the holiday shopping season. Last year I openly wondered if the deals were real or if this was all hype. Every situation is different, but in my experience you have to believe. With that in mind, let’s begin.
Now before you run off and grab your conquests you have to prepare. A deal is great but multiple deals, stacked on top of each other is the best. Do you have a Discover card? Did you activate the 5% cashback bonus for this quarter? It works at Amazon, department stores, and clothing stores. All it takes is a few clicks and you can take on extra savings to your deals.
You also can’t forget Fatwallet and Ebates. These site not only help you find deals, but the offer cash back at hundreds of retailers. Looking over their deals I can tell you that the cashback is very high this year.
Alrighty, with all that settles here are some deals to get you started.
- Marvel Art – Signed By Stan Lee - Men in general and young men specifically are rather difficult to shop for. Right now comic book character are quite popular and Stan Lee is the current king of the art form. “Beyond the Rack“ is offering up a wide assortment of limited edition prints depicting Mr. Lee’s most iconic character like this one of Spider Man. They are doing so at a great discount, retailing at $500 and reduced for your right now to $129.99. This is a great gift for a comic or movie fan that they can keep on their wall for years and year. The best part is that their is a strong possibility that this piece will hold its value or even increase in value over time.
