Shopping today?

Christmas is over, let the shopping begin!

Millions of us will be spending the day after Christmas using the gift cards Santa left under the tree to buy the things we really want. And often for less than those Black Friday and Cyber Monday doorbuster prices.

No wonder gift cards are the most asked for gift this holiday season, according to the National Retail Federation.

If you’re planning to be among the throng, please let me know about your best deal of that day or any unusual experience you had returning a present that turned delight into disappointment when you opened it. (See, there’s a reason gift cards are No. 1.)

I’ll be writing an article about shoppers out and about on Dec. 26, and would like to use your comments. Please either respond below or email me at
