Four Cyber Monday Travel Deals to Salivate Over Now

November 21, 2012 at 11:26 AM | by | Comments (0)

We know you've planned your itinerary for overindulgence this week, but there’s still time to tweak things a little bit in advance of the shopping bonanzas known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Sure you can head out into the dark of the early morning hours in search of a discounted television, computer, or toaster, or you can just fire up the laptop, tablet, or phone and look for some travel deals. We’re not exactly sure who will be offering what—that’s the surprise of Black Friday—but here’s some hints.

· Cathay Pacific is doing something, but we’re not sure exactly what. They have a landing page set up and ready to go promising a “Black Friday Exclusive,” and requesting us to check back with them at midnight on November 23. A little research reveals that it may be a 15% off airfare deal. Expect the discount to apply for travel through February 2013, and it sounds like those booking tickets will even be entered into a special contest.

A Quick and Dirty Video Survival Guide for Outlet Shopping

November 24, 2010 at 12:50 PM | by | Comments (0)

Many of you will go shopping this weekend, whether you're dragged into it or you've been planning on it for weeks already. If you manage to avoid the crowds or restrict shopping to local stores, we salute you, but then you can stop reading this story. Instead, we want to talk to the people with outlet shopping on their minds and plotted on driving maps. Hitting the outlets on Black Friday (or the weekend following) can be one of the most daunting shopping experiences of your year, but happily we have a video guide from Lucky Magazine with a survival How-to for outlet shopping.

In the video, Lucky visits one of the most famous (and hectic) outlet centres of all: Woodbury Common in New York State. They happen to have one of the few Balenciaga outlet stores in the world, just so you have any idea of the level of variety we're talking.

The tips are pretty spot-on, especially the one regarding joining the outlet center's frequent shopper program (even if you only plan to go once) in order to print out a sheaf of extra coupons. It really does happen like that; so don't be one of the only ones in line at 5am Friday morning without those extra discounts!
