You Won’t Believe What Happened on Black Friday!?!?! [infographic]

Sorry for the clickbait title. I thought it’d be funny. We’ve never done that before at Daily Infographic, because, well, they suck. And like most clickbait titles, the content behind it is a little lame. Today we look at last year’s Black Friday statistics and notice how bad the color scheme is on this infographic. While we’re ripping the graphic, the typography is horrid. What year is this? 1999? Let’s go get some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figurines and Pokemon Cards.

“Black Friday is moving online,” it says. Of course – waiting in long lines and getting trampled for foreign-made-goods may be America’s past time, but the younger generation is figuring it out. Coupon codes and two-day shipping, my friend. It’s how I just ordered my entire family’s Christmas gifts and I’m in bed petting my dog at the same time. Gift wrapping option – yes, please! Life is so easy, now I just need my own house so I can make my family come over here instead of having to put on an overcoat.

Thanks for listening to my rant. Sometimes we all need to vent during the holiday season. Well lo-and-behold, here comes the infographic. Knock yourselves out! [via]

Shop Safe on Black Friday and Cyber Monday [infographic]

It’s officially that time of year again, when people start searching stores and web pages for the perfect gift. That’s right, folks, the holiday shopping season is upon us. For those brave shoppers who are or have been facing the crowds today, I commend you. I’m in the category of people who prefer to wait until Cyber Monday, so that we may shop from the comforts of our own homes. Unfortunately for Black Friday and Cyber Monday shoppers alike, identity thieves often target popular stores and websites in an effort to steal our information.

According to the infographic, 87 percent of identity theft victims believe someone stole their information from an offline source, which hasn’t been the case lately. In the last year, computer hackers have obtained personal information and credit card data from several businesses, including Target, UPS, and now Sony. Luckily, the majority of people are able to find out their information has been exposed within the first few months. My debit card information was stolen not too long ago, and I was able to find out the same week it happened.

I have good news, though. There are ways to protect yourself while shopping this season. IdentityHawk has provided 10 tips on how to protect yourself as you shop this season. I personally recommend checking online banking updates regularly, and paying with cash in stores. No matter which day you prefer to buy gifts, take a look at these tips and shop safe.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade [infographic]

For many Americans, one of the highlights of Thanksgiving Day is waking up to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV. Every year, people gather to watch large balloons, beautiful floats, loud marching bands, and hear the sounds of the holiday. The parade was started by immigrants to celebrate their American citizenship. The parade is broadcasted live with musical acts, performances, and a lot of people on the streets celebrating the season.

The history of the parade is long, with many changes since the beginning. For one, it was originally called the Macy’s Christmas Parade, and it was on Christmas Day in 1924. One of the first large balloons was of Felix the Cat. The first radio broadcast of the parade was 1932, and the first TV broadcast was 1947. Despite the many changes to the parade, every year jolly old Saint Nick brings up the rear.

The infographic details a number of interesting, curious, and funny facts about this time honored Thanksgiving Day tradition. The parade is one of the non-sports related activities that I see with my entire family. I make a tradition out of sitting in front of the TV, sipping warm chocolate, and waiting for my favorite balloon to pass, Snoopy.

Weekly Flyers vs. Online Price Tracking [infographic]

November 26, 2014 |  by  |  Internet  |  No Comments

With the holiday season just days away, Christmas shopping is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. With so many gifts to buy, the hustle and bustle of shopping malls and Wal-Marts all around the nation will most likely be the most stressful part of the season. And it shouldn’t be. Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy things from home? Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy things from home AND buy them at a cheaper price? My friends, what a glorious day and age that we live in, where I can tell you that it IS possible. Welcome to the Internet.

As an online shopper, you have access to 10 times the sales and savings provided by your weekly, regular ol’ flyer. (There’s a pun in there. Bonus points if you can find it.)  And those flyers are a hassle. They are a waste of good ink and paper, because half the time they’re thrown out. And anyway, should you cut coupons, inevitably that coupon will find it’s way into the trash can. It doesn’t make sense, when you have the Internet (something that doesn’t even necessarily exist, but can produce the goods you’re looking for almost immediately) right at your fingertips.

From Best Buy to Target, you are bound to find the best bang for your buck by price tracking online. Not only is it cleaner for the environment, but you can save significantly more by shopping online. The infographic below examines the major companies of the holiday season and shows you just how much more you can save by price tracking via the webernet. And as this will be my final infographic before this Thursday… Happy Thanksgiving! [TrackIf]
