6:16 am
susan, i never get up at the crack of dawn the day after th,ksgiving to sh i refuse to do that but i have friends who do on a regular basis and i need to a little for the holidays but you say not to worry, i haven missed anything? >> not at all. black friday is no longer just friday. it goes on for about five to six days. we have cyber monday,f course, coming up, too and these stores want our business so they won't just keep it to one day. if you've noticed, black starts in october, you'll start hearing people say you don't have to wait for blackfriday, we he deals going on now. >> so what's the point? do you just d it because everybody else -- >> because you want to camp o witheverybody. >> experience the cold? >> i don't know. the only reason why i go is because i have to cover it otherwise you wouldn'tet me caught dead in a mall at 4:00 in the morning. but it's thehe create hype and
6:17 am
they do have door buster deals. but for the most part these retailers are desperate for our money and they'll hold out for thele >> melissa, do you get up at the crack of dawn? >> on a normal day but not black friday. i used to love covering black friday because it would be fun and all the people would be out and exciting and in line overnight and then i would get inside and shop and do a story for 100 and go home but i couldn camp out. >> melissa, it isn't just our shoppi habits that have changed. our travel trends have dayed. people used to leave the day before chefstmas, the daye thanksgiving, now they're leaving two days ahead. hanksgiving we have seen terrible traffic tuesday which has kick into gear a year
6:18 am
and a half ago. so we see a lot on tuesday because folks think "let me beat the traffic." i' afraid we'll start filling into monday and it will be a week of thanksgiving travel which is tough. i think we'll stay where it's a day or two days before. with christmas it depends on the day christmas falls. with it being on a monday or tuesday like the last couple years, people leaving on a saturday or sunday it's easier because 'sistributed more even evenly. not the oh, my goodness, it's thanksgiving thursday. >> don't worry so much about the day. travel as early as you can in the morning or as late as you can at night. i know that's hard with littl kids but if they can sleep in thecar, even better. then you don't have to deal with the madness. >> so if you want to fly, it used to be cheaper to fly on the
6:19 am
holiday and i was telling you before we startng this mor tried to get plane tickets to go to las vegas to see my dad onvi thanks day and i thought i'd get a big discount because it's the holiday and i didn't necessarily find that was the case. >> i think 's supply-and-demand. airlines are getting savvy to know that a lot of us are willing to fly on that holiday and because of that they'll up their prices. i was telling people to buy about three months out, but i got really cheap deals. my son was flying friday night and coming back next sunday. those are the o hours. that's when you find the good deals but airlines know. they watch our buying habits and ickets, even the train to go and take a train on thanksgiving or this holiday, they up their prices. >> once you figure it out, they
6:20 am
figure it out. >> there is goo news back on the road. >> it always surprises me when see anything go down around holiday travel. if i see gas go down i think what is going on? normally we see this spike. a record numberref people supposed to be on the roads for holiday travel in holiday -- in general. i have a bad time keeping track because it seems so crazy to me. when i was in colle which wasn't that long ago i remember like 99 cents per gallon and i thought oh, this is rough. but now it's a lot of money to get from point "a" to point "b." >> and when you talk about supply and demand, there's record travel this year. lots of people are getting out
6:21 am
there on the roads so youig expect that gas prices would go hi higher. let's talk strategy for a moment. so blackriday is gone, cyber monday tomorrow, christmasnd chanukah are coming. you say that whether you're shoppiri for blacky or for christmas you need a strategy, make a budget, make a list, and do some comparison shopping. so walk us through these big steps. >> absolutely. i make a list, i d't always do the budget. >> they go hand in hand. so often we do stories in january and february about people who have gotten into so much deb because you get carried awe way. as much as t we want give and give, at the end of the day we're hurting ourselves comend januaryebruary when the bills come so making a budget and making a list and sticking to it does helpat nav that. also, doing this -- it won't help this yearrut next y
6:22 am
planning ahead does certainly help. if you know y children or your loved one wants a particular item, you alwaysatind of for that to go on sale but when w the here and now and going forward, the comparison shopping, the amazon factor, so many retailers, the brick and mortar stores are vying for our business so look at deals. if you're going out to a particular mall and there's a best buy, d negotiating with them. put them on the defensive.lk in with another store's coupon or flyer and say they have this at tics what can you do for me. pretty much they will try to match or even do better for you. there are amazing apps out there, too, so iou're arming yourself today on sunday to go out shopping, dowoad -- i hav three of my favorites, one is
6:23 am
shop savvy. what they do there is update news about the best deals going on at a number of differentnd stores you can actually use your phone to scan bar codes and it will tell you where that particular product is for sale around you. if you don't s it there in a better deal, go somewhere else. the coupons app,ro code, if you're shopping tomorrow online or today, use the promo code. you should never pay for shipping. promo codes often give you free shipping and bradsfield is a great web site. i've been using them for years. ouey will do the home work for you. ife looking for a computer they will take the guess work out for you andve they deal alert so if you're looking for -- like my kids love north face. if you put that on brad's deals they would alert you if they dinga deal and they wi your phone and say there's a north face available right now on sale at blah store.
6:24 am
so you have to d your home work first. >> shop savvy, coupons apps. >> the coupons apps and brau s deals and n do -- also go on a web site, brad's deals but they have a c app y upload as well. >> i'll do the uploading while we take a brea stay with us. hey! hi! congrats on ranking highest by jd power for internet service satisfaction this year. oh, thank you! and on being ranked #1 in customer satisfaction compared to cable. well, the 100% fiber-optic network deserves the credit. and he's humble! so umm... i should probably go get started.

6:44 am
person a diator. i don't know if you would call it a monarchy state, the saudi crown prince and so i think it's more of the president's on institutions, attack on his own government. the undermining of the credibility of these institutions with his own folks, people that de't l this president are with these institutions but what he's doing, the damage he's doing by attacking these institutions, we know the people that support him just go right down that rabbit hole with him and that should be the concern. >> and along those lines, we have to rememr thathe federal scientists released this climate repoer. >> yet anohing where he attacked his own government. >> so now they're down playin -- the president and the white house -- are down playing this report but aside from the timing of itall, the fact that it was released on the middle of black friday wurch i'm people can read into that the
