Student Commentary: Cyber Monday vs. Black Friday

Coy Booker

Thousands of unbelievable deals are on the way this holiday season. Hundreds of retail, outlet, and shopping malls will be filled with hundreds of people pushing, shoving, and fighting for material things that will mean nothing in a few years. Instead of getting beat up over a flat screen tv, wait until Cyber Monday and score even better deals in the comfort of your own home. 

Did you know that 71 people have died over the years from Black Friday shopping? This could all be avoided if we used our heads! Simply open your laptop, smartphone, or even tablet, and go crazy! Cyber Monday provides a safer, cheaper, more comfortable way to shop this year.  

Stores like Best Buy, GameStop and even Walmart will be advertising on Monday. Shopping this holiday season doesn’t have to be dreadful. We can all get what we want without getting hurt! Make the smart decision this year and shop online! Have a good Thanksgiving and an even better Christmas!
