You know: Black Friday, crazy people trampling each other for a TV, that kind of thing… All in the spirit of the Holiday Season, of course! 😉

If recent history is any indication, those of us who don’t much care for crowds and stampedes will do much of our shopping online, and that usually means Amazon.
