Cyber Monday for Patriots

The numbers for 2016’s Black Friday are already out and the result is clear. While there were more shoppers risking life and limb for great holiday deals, there was a drop in spending.

How does that work?

The big box retailers made a decision this year to ride the Black Friday hype and offer few, truly great deals, leading to, for instance a “Doorbuster” from Target of $9.99 throws . . . pathetic we know.

Spending is a progressive game with shoppers. To fill a cart and capture the “yes” mentality, good deals must be presented frequently for the brave holiday shoppers.

In that spirit and for Cyber Monday, here are a few actually good deals for the gun loving, red-meat eating American:

ShootingTargets7: Up to 40% off AR500 steel targets. Be sure to pick up a zombie target along with the magnetic stencil.

Knife Center: Get 20% off already discounted items. No code necessary.

Sportsman’s Guide: Online shop, Sportsman’s Guide, has strong deals on ammo and hunting gear including $142 pump shotguns and 500 rounds of 9mm for only $100.69 (not bad).

Kansas City Steaks: For a good steak at 10% off with free shipping, try Kansas City Steaks with the code “Cyber5” when you hit the checkout button.

Looking for great deals for Cyber Monday?  Walmart and Amazon are the places to go, but before you shop, take a moment to reflect on the Internet backbone that you use to get those great deals.

No, your Cyber Monday purchases are not tax free, however if President Obama and the Federal Communications Commission get their way, you’ll have to pay an extra tax in your Internet bill thanks to new Net Neutrality rules that kick in with new legislation.

In 2015, your Cyber Monday shopping will very likely come with a new “poll tax” that Obama’s administration thinks is necessary to convert the Internet into a public utility.

For online shoppers in 20 states, this new Internet Tax will be in addition to their state’s sales tax.

For those Cyber Monday shoppers in the 30 other states, their online shopping will remain a tax-haven — at least until the FCC takes action.

In the meantime, take advantage of some of those great deals in 2014. Here are just a few:

Happy shopping  . . . for now.
