"Cyber Monday", "Black Friday"...

Are clearly a scam, right?  The deals are limited at best.  The best time to buy stuff is when no one else is buying stuff, which is obviously not these two days.

I'm not sure "cyber monday" is even true.  It smells like bullshit come up with just to try to make another shopping "event" day.   Why would you go online shopping today?  It's a workday.  I don't have time to sit around looking at Amazon all day.

I was thinking about this with respect to cars on the way to work today.  I'm wondering if now is a pretty good time to buy an SUV.  They've gotten a bad rap.  They guzzle gas, etc.  People hate them.  That means there must be good deals to be had.

Moral of the story is, if you're looking for a deal, you should try to find them in places where other people aren't looking.
