      There are so many wonderful movies and shows to watch this holiday season, from channels like Hallmark, Freeform, Lifetime, AMC, and more. 

      Taking inspiration from one of my personal favorite Christmas movies and a quote from everyones favorite elf Buddy, “First we’ll make snow angels for two hours, and then we’ll go ice-skating, and then we’ll eat a whole roll of Toll House cookie dough as fast as we can, and then to finish, we’ll snuggle” and watch all of our favorite holiday movies by the fire. Okay, I added the last part, but Christmas is almost here and I couldn’t be more excited.

      Black Friday & Cyber Monday Tips

      Posted by Alley Dornbach on Nov 21, 2018 1:25:11 PM

      Black Friday is coming up quick and Cyber Monday is following right behind it! It is definitely time to start planning your shopping mission. Black Friday has turned from a single day into a whole saving weekend, and Cincinnati Bell wants to guarantee you are saving the most.

      Get on top of your game with these Black Friday and Cyber Monday tips.

      Research the Deals: Black Friday starts earlier and earlier every year. Make sure you are checking the prices leading up to Black Friday to ensure you are getting the best deal. Keep an eye on the actual sale because online retailers regularly update the prices throughout the event, and sometimes offer deals before Black Friday.

      Shop Strategically: Look up all the ads (print and online) a couple days in advance. It’s important to also prioritize your shopping list to determine what you actually need to buy. Start with your high-priority items and make your way down the list. Pro tip: Pick up a newspaper on Thanksgiving morning at any grocery store or coffee shop. The Thanksgiving Day paper will include ALL of the sale ads.
