#LIBLACKFRIDAY ...well savvy shoppers I had no idea that Roosevelt Field closed on Black Friday @ 10:00pm. That's ok because I am going to score my final deal on line with Apple. ALL APPLE products are discounted till midnight & if you happen to be a teacher or student you can tack on another 10% on top of the discount. If you have Apple's preferred credit card Barclays( I do) you can get ZERO percent financing for 3 years! Holler !!! Ladies may the savviest shopper win. I really enjoyed our competition & win or loose I made new Savvy Shopping Friends . We need to reunite over drinks & maybe Newsday will treat us since we all shared & helped fellow Newsday subscribers get fabulous discounts in these trying economic times . THANK YOU NEWSDAY FOR a DELIGHTFUL & ECONOMICAL ADVENTURE !!!
