The elves have finally turned on Santa and are offering deals under the table

I guess that’s what Meijer would have us think. I recently changed my subscription settings on Meijer.com, and now I’m getting emails like this one:

Like any wise shopper, I suggest comparing online prices. The prices they’re posting seem somewhat comparable to what Amazon.com has these same items priced at, so obviously manufacturers are offering deals.

I heard on NPR the other day that this is a new retail strategy – retails are worried about this Xmas season so they’re offering deals sooner to entice folks to buy – they’re copying the Amazon GoldBox concept.

I keep bringing up Amazon, but ever since we got our free Amazon Prime subscription, I’ve been shopping there a lot more. I don’t know that it will continue when that runs out, but I’m sure loving it now!
