The Do's and Don't of Black Friday shopping



Tomorrow all the big Black Friday deals will be revealed as stores release their special holiday fliers for the brave holiday shoppers venturing out the Friday after Thanksgiving. Buyer beware as sometimes these Black Friday deals are not always the best deals of the year and some are not always as good as they seem on paper or in your e-mail.

In an effort to help our customer's shop smart during the holidays, we've compiled a list of some do's and don't of shopping on Black Friday.

DO:
  • Make a list. Write down who you need to shop for an/or the exact items you are looking for. This type of tactic will keep  you on task and less distracting while fighting the crowds.
  • Stick to a budget. Know what you have to spend and keep track of what you spend. This way there are no surprises or buyer remorse the next day.
  • Pre-shop. Peruse the fliers in tomorrow's papers and sign up for e-mails from your favorite stores. You can make your list best after checking out the deals featured in the fliers and e-mails. These advertisements will also tip you off on what the hottest items of the season are. The ads may also help you plan out your method of attack when visiting multiple stores.
  • Take advantage of Cyber Monday. Did you know the Monday after Thanksgiving is known as Cyber Monday? Shop in your pajamas and get special discounts and even free shipping on some of your biggest and best gifts. Many stores throw in free gifts and significant savings for online shoppers.
  • Search for coupons and free shipping. These two items can save  you a lot of money. Check local papers and online for coupons and codes.  
DON'T:
  • Wait until the last minute. If you are going out Black Friday-go out early! The items might be gone and out of stock if you wait too long.
  • Don't be a Grinch. Holiday shopping can be stressful, but you don't have to take it out on others. Be respectful when fighting the crowds and waiting in line.
  • Don't assume Black Friday prices are the be all and end all. Some experts say prices of electronics may drop lower up to a week after the special shopping day.
  • Don't buy more than you need. Low prices can be tempting and sometimes shoppers can get greedy. Buy only what you need; you'll be happy come January when you have some extra money left over.
Happy shopping!

Climate Change Calls for preparation



A new story out on Huffington Post today states climate scientists and disaster specialists are warning of the dangers of potential extreme and dangerous weather conditions expected to take place in the near future. Experts are warning organizations to consider their specific risks and advising states, towns and emergency organizations get prepared for impending dire situations.

Weather related disasters can cost millions of dollars to undo. For example, several weeks ago parts of Connecticut were caught off guard by an unexpected snow and ice storm. The storm left hundreds of thousands without power for a week or more and much of the state crippled. Yesterday, President Obama said because he had put Connecticut in a State of Emergency post storm that home owners would be eligible for a 75 percent insurance reimbursement. This storm has caused much turmoil in Connecticut (4AllPromos home-although thankfully we did not suffer the wrath) and as a result business, school and many individuals are struggling to get back on track.

Experts are saying that floods, droughts, heat waves, tornado's, thunder storms, freak snow and ice storms can be a threat all over the United States and everyone should prepare for all of these scenarios. 4AllPromos can be your source for storm and emergency related products. Government organizations, towns, school and businesses can help warn customers, clients, students and neighbors on how to be prepared for all kinds of weather conditions.

Hand out umbrellas, information brochures, flashlights, crank operated radios, reflectors, car safety kits, blankets, coolers are any other safety related items with website or telephone information and perhaps information on how to stayed prepared during floods, power outages, icy conditions and other dangerous situations.

You never know when Mother Nature can strike. Let 4AllPromos help you stay ahead of the game.

Are you one of those people who has to have the latest and greatest toy and gadget of the year? Christmas is the holiday to compose a list of your most sought after items-a wish list of sorts. What is on your list this year? I'm hoping Santa will come through with the WiFi Kindle for me. I've trolled the internet looking for the most popular items of 2011. Although it may be too early to tell just yet as in true American fashion not too many people have started their holiday shopping yet this is what I've concluded:


  1. XBox 360 with Kinect
  2. 3D/LED/LCD televisions
  3. Apple iPad 2
  4. Coffee machines (Keurigs)
  5. Sports/concert tickets
  6. Kindle/Nook (e-reader)
  7. Golf clubs
  8. Clothes
  9. Pedicures
  10. Pet
Maybe some of these ideas will get your imagination going and inspire you to start making your list and checking it twice. Happy shopping!

Obama opts to cut Whitehouse swag





There's big news buzzing in the world of promotional products this week-President Obama has asked staffers to cut spending on items such as travel, transportation, technology aaaannnd swag a.k.a White House official apparel, umbrellas, stress balls, notebooks, pens, etc. GASP! We know, we know those kinds of custom imprinted products are so much fun and somehow manage to make things just seem that much more official.

The advertising and promotional product industry is up in arms over the budget cut and many are crossing their fingers that other large operations won't get the same idea. The truth is many, many promotional products are very affordable advertising mediums for so many businesses and organizations. Also, the Advertising Specialty Institute suggest that promotional products do a better job advertising than some radio and television commercials.

In case Obama and his camp decide to change their mind we'd like to take the liberty of showing them a few items of SWAG that cost less than $1. Can't beat that!

Go Green Market Value Tote Bag: SKU 167-39ET1315 (Starting at just $.95)
Reading Twist Pen: SKU 258-NE41 ($.27)

Globe Stress Ball: SKU 340-SB250 ($.81)

 2" x 3" Sticky Notepads-25 sheets-4 color FREE: SKU 340-SB250 (as low as $.17)



















The list goes on and on. For more effective but affordable custom imprinted and promotion products visit www.4allpromos.com

1. Visibility: We all know Google is King when it comes to internet searches. Embed the Google+ widget into your site and let customer rank you!

There's always a reason to eat almonds


Almonds are a go-to snack here in the 4AllPromos office. Nuts are a healthy and filling snack. Add nuts to cereal, oatmeal or your favorite trail mix to incorporate them into your diet.

It should be noted that all nuts should be consumed in moderation like all foods that are part of a healthy diet. Some nuts have high amounts of cholesterol and fat but all nuts have important nutritional benefits.

But here are 3 reasons why almonds are such a good choice:
1. Almonds regulate spikes in blood pressure. The more almonds you eat the less your blood sugar bounces up and down.

2. Almonds lower insulin sensitivity. These nuts are a great snack for people battling diabetes. The unsaturated fats and high fiber content in almonds help to regulate the use of insulin in the body. Almonds allow the pancreas to do less work when regulating insulin because almonds help the body produce less insulin.

3. Almonds help keep the pounds off. The high fiber in almonds keeps you filling fuller longer.

Remember to keep nuts refrigerated to help keep them fresh. Any yellow, tan or foul smelling nuts should be thrown away.

4AllPromos has a large selection of gourmet nut gift packages along with other snacks that are perfect for the holidays. Check out the Gourmet Food section to take a look at our selection of almonds, peanuts, cashews and more!

Prices of peanut butter are going up!

News out this week has indicated that peanut prices are going up after one of the worst peanut harvests in decades. Farmers claim the intense summer heat and a drought in the southern United States affected the crop used to make all kinds of our favorite peanut filled foods and snacks. Peanut butter producers warn the prices could rise anywhere between 20 to 40 percent.

In the meantime there are many ways to weather the peanut price soar. Although peanut butter is a staple in many Americans diet there are many other alternatives as well including:

  • Jelly
  • Nutella
  • Butter
  • Fluff
  • Almond or Apple Butter
Yes, some of these alternatives are on the expensive side as well but some are more affordable than peanut butter and very healthy. If peanut butter is an vital or important part of  your diet what are you going to do to keep up with this price increase? Will you continue to buy peanut better and suck up the price increase or eliminate other items from your grocery list in order to continue to buy peanut butter? 

It's important to keep up with food prices because in this delicate economy they are always changes to reflect supply and demand and environmental changes. Recent bacterial outbreaks including listeria and E. Coli  have also caused quite the concern in the farming industry. Reading up on food related headlines can impact your wallet and your health. 

4AllPromos does sell some peanut and peanut butter related items though we have not heard of any increases in prices as of late. We sell many other candy and sweet alternatives including other nuts, salty snacks and candies which are perfect for this upcoming holiday season. Remember to check out our website at www.4allpromos.com and if  you have questions about any of our food products or other promotional products feel free to call one our friendly product specialists toll-free at 1-866-732-3386.
