Yes it was on WNDU which is a NBC affliate. The story was a little more in depth than it appeared on their website, and gottadeal.com definately was the site ppl will remember! I didnt personally tell them about you guys, just told a friend about trying to find the tmx elmo and what yall said on your site and the next day she called me to tell me about the story going to air that night! Anyway, love your site,been a lurker for 2 yrs but signed on to tell you that our area knows all about you!:)

Popular online shopping sites

Analysts and retail experts say this is going to be the earliest season ever for consumers to use the Internet to do their holiday shopping.

Here are a listing of some of the most popular sites:

www.GottaDeal.com - Consumers can get the early info on major sales and "Black Friday" bargains, often way before they hit general public consumption.

Trick or treat -- Santa's ringing your bell
Some consumers can't start Christmas shopping early enough
By LULADEY B. TADESSE, The News Journal
Posted Monday, October 23, 2006

<snip>

Make sure to pay attention to advertisements on television, newspapers and online. For example, a Web site called blackfriday.gottadeal.com tracks Black Friday sales from different companies. Already, one ad is posted for Nov. 24.

If you can, print or cut out the advertisement and take it with you when you go shopping. It will help you to remember which store to look for, as well as the price.

Use this thread to post or discuss any media appearances you see for the site. Be sure to only post stories from this year, not from 2005.

Here is the first one. I did a phone interview this morning and it should be in the paper tomorrow:
