Holiday Shopping Season Calendar: Your List of the Hottest Days to Buy

×
Holiday shopping daysThe day after Thanksgiving has been dubbed "Black Friday" for decades, but it's only in the last several years that the holiday season gained additional "special" shopping days. The most prominent of these new retail holidays is Cyber Monday, invented -- or at least, first recognized -- in 2005 by the National Retail Federation. The online shopping celebration has been a huge hit, with sales growing by leaps and bounds every year: 2012 sales jumped by between 22% and 30% compared to 2011.

Perhaps inspired by Cyber Monday, a number of organizations and companies have introduced shopping holidays of their own, with mixed success. Here's a full calendar for the 2012 holiday season.

One of the Hottest Items this Holiday Season are Tablets and one site worth visiting is TabletSprint -- they have Android tablets that offer better features than Nexus 7 & Kindle, for a much better price -- one model available is the Novo 7 Flame and it comes with 32GB for $189 (compare to Nexus 7 32GB at $249) -- and has 3 quality features Nexus doesn't - a MicroSD Memory Card slot for unlimited storage, 2 high quality cameras with a 5 megapixel back camera with autofocus & Flash; and HDMI output to a large screen TV, which is nice for movie downloads to watch in Full 1080p (HD) - It's also a great gaming device with a hi-res 1280x800 IPS screen and a 2nd generation dual core cpu. -- TabletSprint also includes $25 in software Apps, plus has something Nexus and Kindle don't - they provide customers with a 4G adapter for free, that comes with a free monthly 3G/4g data plan with free 500MB Data every month, with full internet access, and VoIP voice calling - TabletSprint is certainly worth checking out for this and other multimedia devices --

As long as consumers pay for the high cost of the gasoline, medical services, then they will have a lot less money to spend on other products. I hope Wall-Mart, Costco, and Target consider opening of Family Practice Clinics, and Dental Services to consumers. We are being looted by Hospitals, Clinics and Group Practices. Ban or eliminate AMA which is root cause of our Healthcare
