Well Hello there my little Elves.....
Here are a few shopping tips to help you during the next few days before Christmas....
For a great last minute gift go to www.giftcertificates.com I've used them
before and it's fast and easy. The best part is the recipient can use the
money at the store of his/her choosing. Even better, if you buy $50 or more
you'll get a fere $5 promotional "SuperCertificate".

If you order by December 20th you can get free delivery by Christmas! You
can also save 10% on one item in your order when you use coupon code H76LDQK
at the checkout at www.barnesandnoble.com
Awhile ago I told you about an interesting web site called www.opentable.com
We have so many new subscribers that I thought I'd mention it again,
especially in case you're thinking about making dinner reservations at a
restaurant for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or even New Years Eve. You can
make reseravations for various restaurants throughout the US and by doing
so, you actually earn points that can be later turned into dollars and spent
at the restaurant of your choice. I tried it out and it was fast, easy, and
now I have points to spend! Woohoo! Click on the town where you live or
even where you might be visiting during the holidays. You have to make
reservations anyway, so you might as well be rewarded too! :)
By the way, a friend told me a terrible story yesterday that reminded me
that we all need to be very careful with our purchases while we're out there
shopping. She had purchased a portable CD player for her daughter at
Macy's. When she brought it home she wanted to show it to her husband
before wrapping it up for Santa. When they opened the box they discovered
that some sleezy, crummy crook of a shopper had stolen the CD player and
replaced it with another less expensive item from the same store so that the
box would be heavy and feel like the correct contents were inside. Can you
believe that? I was so mad for her! Thankfully, there are enough kind
people and heroes in the world to make up for cruddy scumbags like that.
EESH! Check your bags and boxes before you leave the store.
That's it for now. Good luck out there! Merry CHRISTmas!
