Two of the biggest shopping days of the year are just days away. Black Friday and Cyber Monday, immediately following Thanksgiving, represent the kick off to the Holiday shopping season. Over the next several weeks, The Consumer Team talk radio program will be featuring segments focused on helping shoppers get maximum savings and discounts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The Consumer Team is broadcast Saturdays, 5-7PM Central, on KRLD Radio, Dallas, Texas.
Jody Rohlena, Senior Editor with Shop Smart Magazine, will join Consumer Team host Pete Thomson for the special shopping segments. According to Pete Thomson, the interviews will be very informative. Thomson commented, “Jody Rohlena is the smartest shopper I’ve ever met. Jody has some very original and valuable shopping tips for both Black Friday and Cyber Monday.”
Thomson added, “Sometimes the whole holiday shopping experience can be very overwhelming to consumers. There are so many sales and promotions that the consumer can easily lose focus. Jody Rohlena and her team at Shop Smart Magazine have done a superb job of helping us sort this process out. Our listeners will come away with specific ways to save money, get big discounts and get those great deals that seem to only happen on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.”
Thomson called Consumer Reports the gold standard of consumer reporting. He added, “It’s an honor whenever we can get one of their writers for an interview. I buy everything they publish and can say conservatively that their information has saved me many thousands of dollars as a consumer.”
Black Friday has developed a reputation for being the day that hard-core shoppers who often sleep overnight at a mall or store parking lot to get access to deeply discounted merchandise. Thomson said, “You don’t have to sleep overnight at the mall to get good deals and huge discounts on Black Friday. Regular people who don’t want to deal with the beat-down of the crowds will get a lot from our segments.” And as for the professional shoppers? Thomson said, “I can’t give it away but we’ll have some tips for them too.”
Cyber Monday, the biggest day of the year for online shopping, has received increased attention in recent years as more shoppers have opted for the convenience of shopping from their personal computers. Thomson said, ” The power that the cyber consumer has at their finger tips for making smart shopping decisions is incredible. We’ll be talking about several Apps that will make the Cyber Monday and holiday online shopping process much easier.”
