I’m sure I missed some great sales so check with your favorite online retailer for deals today. Remember to join their newsletter list which will shoot these deals directly to your in box.

Also, remember that this is going to be an online shopping heavy holiday so be sure to shop early for delivery by Christmas (or holiday of your choice).
