Mastering the Art of Shopping with #MasterPass

DTM MC Disclosure

Can using MasterPass and online shopping really be better than Black Friday shopping?

I’m one of those crazy people that loves Black Friday shopping.  I normally avoid shopping with crowds like the plague, but for whatever reason, Black Friday shopping just really gets me jazzed up.  Maybe it’s the thrill of getting the deal or getting all of my holiday shopping done in one day?  I don’t really know.  All I can say is that I consider Black Friday the only competitive sporting event in which I participate.  Seriously.  This is me:

Black Friday Shopping


In recent years, though, I found that it’s become less and less worth the early wake up call and the crowds.  Is it really worth putting my life at risk to save $100?  Mmmm….maybe.

This year, though, it’s a little different.  See this fabulous young woman?

my daughter

See lives here:


Since she’s in college, with a triple major and an RA, I hardly get to see her much.  Actually, she hasn’t been able to come home since July.  I miss this kid like crazy.

She’s finally coming home for Thanksgiving!  She arrives Thursday and leaves Saturday, meaning our time together will be very short.

So, this year, I’m putting away the boxing gloves.  Yes, I’m skipping Black Friday shopping.  (Dear Daughter, do not doubt the depths of my love for you!)

I still have some holiday wishes to fill, though.  This year, to complicate matters, I’m also embarking on a completely redecorating our living room, dining room and kitchen between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  So, not much time to trek from store to store.  What’s a girl to do?

Thanks to working with #MasterPass, I was able to quickly and easily get my holiday shopping done (yes, before Black Friday!).

MasterPass is an secure “wallet” for shopping online.  Once I set everything up, I was able to skip most of the tedious tasks of checking out.

Set up is quick and easy, taking less than 15 minutes.

Tops on my list for great deals is Living Social.  Just a few clicks to find the right gift:

Yes, really, I’m done.  Instead of stressing about holiday shopping, I’ll be spending time with my daughter this Friday.  That’s a better deal than anything I’d find on Black Friday!
