How-To: Tips for Shopping Online

Black Friday and the Monday that follows, which we have somewhat recently taken to calling Cyber Monday, are two of the biggest shopping days of the year. The tradition of getting off to a fast start on your holiday shopping by getting out there on the Friday after Thanksgiving that most Americans take as a vacation day dates back to the 1960’s. Cyber Monday, on the other hand, was created by online retailers sometime in the last decade in an attempt at squeezing one more day of shopping mania out of consumers.

These manufactured holidays are probably detracting from the quaintness of what used to be a perfectly Rockwellian day of football and food and football. But the deals, they’re just so good, you would have to be made of stone to resist! So we produced this short video to help consumers stay safe online, not just on Cyber Monday and Black Friday, but throughout the holiday shopping season.
