Cyber Monday Travel Deals

First it was Black Friday (which really started on Thursday in some places!), then Small Business Saturday, and now, today is Cyber Monday, which is quickly becoming one of the biggest shopping days of the year. Sales in the US continue growing – from $610 million in 2006 to about $1.3 billion in 2011.


More creative, fashionable QR codes

As reported by the New York Times, QR codes were all the rage during New York’s Fashion Week earlier this month. When scanned, QR codes can connect consumers to everything from webpages (company or personal), online contests, games and cocktail recipes, to personal social media pages and geographic coordinates. Even how-to videos – at Macy’s, a QR code that points consumers to a smoky-eye makeup lesson by Bobbi Brown has been an unexpected hit.
