Cyber Monday is a scam

I’d never heard of “Cyber Monday” and the supposed boost in Internet sales that accompany the return to the office the Monday after Thanksgiving until NPR reported on it three or four years ago. Despite the fact that it seems to be something cooked up to bolster sales frenzies, people are always attracted to bargains.

And, frankly, who wants to get up at 3 a.m. and deal with shenanigans like these?

The problem with things like “Cyber Monday” is that it’s difficult to support a local business. Happily, we’ve managed to find a local enterprise offering up a deal today. Head on over to Blue Collar Distro, and when you enter the code “GARFIELD” at checkout, you’ll save 15%.

If you want to go extra local, you can get merch and music from bands like Coalesce, the Get Up Kids, Ghosty, KTP, and even radio stations like KJHK.
