Cyber Monday

Make sure your computers are powered up and ready to do some shopping. This years Cyber Monday sales are going to be huge.  While many retail stores and online stores throw out their Cyber Monday deals way ahead of time, waiting for the actual Cyber Monday sale day (the Monday after Thanksgiving) could save you even more money on those bigger purchases.

If you want to do a little consumer research on things you are hoping to get this year before you pull out your credit cards, the library provides you access to Consumer Reports both in the library and online (online requires your library card), and you can also check out an eBook through Enki called Black Friday and Cyber Monday Guide.  It was published in 2018 but it still has some helpful tips to make your time spent online shopping more fun.

Happy holidays, and happy shopping!
