I mentioned in my email on Friday that my inbox was FULL of holiday messages and Black Friday / Cyber Monday specials. I just returned from my weekend getaway this morning (which was tons of fun, by the way!!) and sat down to clean out my Gmail account.
I decided to scan over the offers real quick. I started by checking out Amazon's Cyber Monday deals. I'm a Prime Member and I love their fast, free shipping - and they DO have seriously great deals for holiday shopping.
The only thing I'm really in the market for at the moment is a new smartphone. My original Droid Razr is going on two years old and it's starting to act quirky. Verizon is waiving the $35 activation fee on all devices (today is the last day I believe), so I've been checking out the new Droids. Specifically the Droid Maxx/Ultra.
Anyway, scanning over my emails the one great deal that stood out to me is HostGator's "Flash Sale" and Cyber Monday deals happening today (Monday 12/2) only. They have two limited time flash sales left today, from 10am to Noon Central Time and again 10pm to 11:59pm Central Time. Both flash sales are the same offer: 75% off all new hosting packages and $1.95 domains:
I use the HostGator Baby Plan for all of my accounts, because that plan allows for unlimited domains / sites / blogs on the one account - usually for $9.95/month. But today is a great day to set up a hosting account if you need one, and get it much cheaper.
During their non “fire sale” times today, they are still running 60% off new hosting packages and $4.50/year domains (through Monday at 11:59PM Central Time). That's still better than all other discounts this year!
Another cool offer I found in my Inbox was a chance to win The Ultimate Pretzel Crisps Tailgating Package:
Perfect timing, as I was just watching the Vols last game of the season while I was away over the weekend (awesome game!! Go Vols ) and we were talking about tailgating next season. It was super easy to enter too - and there were some great deals on the confirmation page...
Here are a couple more cool deals/offers I found in my Inbox:
Now is definitely the time to be thinking about holiday cards & gift cards!
I noticed that Apple did a Black Friday sale this year, which is new. I missed it so I'm not sure what they offered. They do have free shipping through December 22nd though, which is great for holiday shopping.
Have you done any holiday or deal shopping this week? Score anything good?? I'd love to hear what you got! Leave a comment below, and share any links to great deals still happening...
I'm off to catch up on messages after being away for the long holiday weekend here in the US, and hop on the phone with Verizon to see what kind of deal I can score on a new Droid. I hope you had a fabulous weekend, and are taking advantage of all the great deals right now!!
p.s. I am still going through emails and just found another great deal! Karon Thackston is offering 50% off Both Courses with coupon code THX50 - but it ends today (Monday, December 2nd).
Here's another. It's a 50% off Black Friday Weekend PLR sale good through tomorrow, Tuesday December 3rd. Lots of great PLR topics! Check it out:
AND... New Cyber Monday Deals to be released at 3pm PST on Walmart.com: "We will be adding 40–50 items with incredible Cyber Monday prices at 3pm PST today! Save on Electronics & Office, Movies, Music & Books, Toys & Video Games and many more. Plus, for a limited time only enjoy free shipping on all orders over $35!"
Fun! I just ordered a new 40" TV for my Home Office.
