Help Us! Tell Us What You Hate About The Holiday Shopping Season

Attention Shoppers: We’re interested in your opinions about the upcoming holiday shopping season. What drives you up the chimney? Is it the music? Black Friday? Rebates? Christmas Creep? Let us know!

Drop your suggestions in the comments or email them to with “Holiday Headaches” in the subject. We’ll round up your answers and turn them into a poll! Yay, polls!

Please be specific. If you’re annoyed by website prices not matching the in-store prices, or one particular retailer’s marketing practices, say so! The more specific you can be, the better our poll will be. So, tell us, what needs to change about shopping at the holidays?
