There are three big reasons to shop in the month leading up to and including Christmas.
Black Friday (November 28, 2014).
Cyber Monday (December 1, 2014).
And of course Christmas itself (December 25, 2014…duh).
After years of passing up on these opportunities, I finally decided to look around last year and see what kind of ‘deals’ I could find. Obviously I was skeptical because really, who gives real sales anymore. However, since my experience last year, I have hardly been able to contain my excitement in awaiting this year’s sales to get started.
I took advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals last year and saved a ton of money in the process in the lead up to Christmas. Furthermore, especially online, stores like Amazon have sales pretty much every day on awesome stuff, including beard trimmers.
