Today is the day retailers and marketers refer to as Cyber Monday, Black Friday's little brother. Cyber Monday doesn't have everything all figured out, but the kid's got a lot of pluck. He could even one day surpass his big sister, Black Friday. I wouldn't be surprised at all.
There are so many deals on the Internet today, you don't even need to know where to look. If there's something you've been planning to buy online — or if there's something you once even thought about buying online, today is the day to do it. I don't even really think I need to tell you where to go to find discounts, because pretty much every e-tailer is offering BIG SAVINGS. Even the luxury kids.
Barneys, for example, is offering up to 40% and free shipping.
Also, this Giftlab White Horn Amplifier (which sold out the second Gwyneth Paltrow advertised it on her Goop holiday wishlist) is on sale for $1.69 right now, down from $24.99 (not kidding!) on Amazon. If you have Prime, there's even free shipping.
Want more hotttt tips? I did my Cyber Monday shopping during Black Friday ("Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday" are more marketing gimmicks than distinct events), and bought practically everything (by "everything" I mean six things) Uniqlo was selling, due to some obscene discounts on cashmere which then led me down a rabbit hole of faux fur ear muffs and footless sweater leggings. Free shipping for orders over $100, and everything's already been delivered to me. It's almost disgusting how efficient and wonderful online shopping is, when you consider the human cost associated with selling clothing for a pittance and road-runnering it to people's apartments. I mean, it is disgusting. Still, I'll be damned if I'm not totally cozy and totally cute all winter long. Yeah, I'm a hypocrite.
Cyber Monday would be way better if it were followed by Reality Check Tuesday.
