What are your strategies for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and other holiday sales?
Many people camp and stampede, but many more have found other ways to grab great bargains during the holiday sales season. Please share some of yours.
My strategies include nap time, at least three cups of coffee and a dozen or so cigarette breaks and absolutely positively not going anywhere near a store for the next week.

Simple. Avoid stores and malls like the plague. Shop online during the weekend ()while everyone else is at themall) then go to the malls on monday (when everyon else is online). Usually I spread out my shopping during the year so that I can find at least some gifs early and stach them for christmas.

Amazon earnings are updated for yesterday and I had my best day!! Seen over $800 of items ordered, once these ship it will take me into the 6.5% category. Probably small fish to some of you but it will help me break my Amazon earning record set last month.
