Holiday shopping? Caveat emptor

Have you been venturing onto the internet lately, or (shudder) actual mall stores in search of those killer holiday deals?  You might want to compare prices before you buy.  This New York Times article confirms what I’ve always suspected:  Most of those amazing deals are not so amazing after all. Researchers from The Wirecutter and The Sweethome found less than 1% of the 54,000 holiday deals they reviewed are actually good deals.  ”When we find a deal that we think is good, it’s a needle in a haystack,” says Editor in Chief Jacqui Cheng. ”We’re super-excited when that happens.”  Puts a whole new meaning on Black Friday, doesn’t it?
