At The Mall: Store Closing And More…

The Décor, a gift store, located in the Roseville Mall in Roseville, Minnesota is going out-of-business.  With jewelry, household decorating, and unique apparel, the bargain hunter has an opportunity to find that special pièce de resistance for the home and a little personal bling at closing store prices.

Macys Online get an extra 25% off Plus Size Clearance.   Add this to clearance already marked down 40%-80%, deals are just waiting to be scooped up!

Race To Buy: Online Black Friday

Amazon.com has a new spin-off on Black Friday Sales. It’s called Race To Buy, and here is how to play with some suggestions:

Step 1. Amongst their customers they select a number of individuals to Vote on the best deals from a selection of items.

Step 2. When you vote, you may be put into a selected few that are able to purchase the item for the sale price on a preselected date. If you are selected either in Step 1 or Step 2, they notify you by email.

Step 3. When and if you are notified that you can participate in the final round, they give you a date and time, usually based on PST, so adjust for your time zone.

Step 4. On that date, be ready. Don’t make the mistake Markdown Mom did and wait to be notified that the item is not up for sale. Go to the last email in Step 3 and line-up early to make your purchase. It’s apparent from participating in one of these Rounds, that the earlier you are online, the greater chances you will have a purchasing the item or items at a remarkable savings. The greater the savings, the greater the number of people online. See how this is like Black Friday? The difference is you don’t have to shove or worry about being trampled, the only thing you need are nimble fingers and quick keystrokes.

Oh, by the way, Markdown Mom lost out on the Kitchenaid Mixer that was being offered for under $80.00! This race is over, but there is always next year, so mark your calendars. If you can’t wait, check out their Hot Deals for other savings.
