So that was Christmas 2005 online and, if we believe all the hype, I should be a millionaire by now so I obviously need to try harder – so here goes…
Although the main rush is over there’s still plenty of time to shop online for delivery before Christmas with most online stores still taking orders until next Tuesday/Wednesday. We’ve got a page together with all the Last Christmas order deadlines and, unlike previous years, quite a few of the most popular items are in stock.
The gadget stores have been trying to give each other the chocolate finger by undercutting each other for the chocolate fountain market and I can’t imagine they’ll be a buffet in the land which doesn’t feature a chocolate fountain from now on – another step in the wrong direction for the nations health I think.
The lingerie stores always do well as us men get over-excited looking forward to some bedroom action over the festive season. Just make sure you don’t get caught checking sizes in the undies drawer or it could all end in tears.
It amuses me how much we’re prepared to pay for the skimpiest triangles of material but at least BeCheeky have been kind enough to give CantBarsed.com a promotional code which gets you a free thong with every order – even then the jiffy bag will weigh more than its contents!
I wanted to get my daughter a pink mobile phone but they seem to be out of stock everywhere, it’s become an obsession so if anyone reading this has stock and get one to me before Christmas post a comment.
I’m really looking forward to the annual Christmas binge but I know from previous years come New Years Eve we’ll all be signing up for online diets and making New Year Resolutions we won’t keep. The last couple of years we’ve run a Free Competition with a prize for the best New Year Resolution and we’ll open it again this year so get your thinking caps on and come up with something which will capture our imagination. Hmmn, just thinking of a suitable prize and a chocolate fountain would make an ironic choice! Got any suggestions?
Our current iPod nano Free Prize Draw closes Christmas Eve so get another entry in before then – you can enter weekly and we’re currently running a couple of other Free Prize Draws for subscribers so check them out too.
Finally I’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and thank everyone who has used CantBarsed.com to save money during the Christmas 2005 online period, it really is very much appreciated.
