This year’s holiday shopping season has seen a number of new door-busting additions to popular Christmas shopping themed days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Increasing numbers of consumers are avoiding the long checkout lines that waste their time and cut into their bottom line, opting instead for the smash and grab approach.
In response, retailers like CVS and Target have added Looting Tuesday to the list of days when shoppers can expect exceptional holiday savings. Looting Tuesday events are planned at locations across the country. For those who pre-register, some retailers are offering to commemorate your Looting Tuesday experience by capturing it on security video and sharing it for free.
Five Finger Friday events are breaking out spontaneously at Home Depot and Best Buy locations around the country. If you are considering taking part in a flash mob shopping event, retailers like Best Buy are asking that you pause your plundering for a moment and consider signing up for their extended warranty plan before tearing off into the night with your new laptop.
Smash and Dash Saturdays are gaining in popularity in some of the nation’s more high-end shopping districts. Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Saks are all prepping for a weekend of holiday mayhem. The merchandise is free, but if you need gift wrapping, it may cost extra.
