A Lightning Cyber Monday Pittsburgh Shirt Giveaway and Bonus Discount Code!

This is the second year now that I’ve done about 95% of my Christmas shopping online (Amazon.com is all “SAY MY NAME, BITCH.”) and I love it. Less stressful. Less punch-inducing. Less LOOK AT THAT HEADLESS CHICKEN RUNNING AROUND SCREAMING SOMETHING ABOUT BAKUGANS AND CALICO CRITTERS (WHICH IS ODD BECAUSE IT DOESN’T HAVE A HEAD)!

Saturday was for small businesses and today, Monday, is for online businesses.

Pittsburgh has some online businesses you can support today via CyberMonday like:

Jupe Boutique: 30% off today

Commonwealth Press: $5 off your order with the code “cyber”

Steelers.com: 10% off your entire order

PostGazette.com: 20% off everything with code “cyber20”

In addition, Fresh Factory, the Pittsburgh store that sells the softest Pirates raglan EVER (seriously, my husband lives in it) and the coolest vintage Mario Lemieux shirt, has two new designs, one of which I fell in love with and am giving away this Cyber Monday.

Masloff for Mayor!


What: One “Masloff for Mayor” shirt courtesy of Fresh Factory. Size chosen by winner.

To Enter: Leave a comment. Any comment will do, but so you have something to say, let’s take a little poll and you tell me what percentage of your holiday shopping you plan to do or have already done online versus in physical stores. I already told you I’m up to 95% this year.

One comment per valid email address and this is a FAST giveaway because you only have until 7:00 p.m. this Cyber Monday to enter at which time Random.org will choose a winner.

If you don’t win or if you want to purchase gifts on Fresh Factory (LOTS of awesome Burgh shirts), use code “PGH20” for 20% off! 

Good luck!

Fine print: This is not a paid giveaway. I just love Fresh Factory’s shirts! And I love you! FINGERHEARTS! BAKUGANS! CALICO CRITTERS!

    Sophie ROCKS!!!!!! If there were a cage fight with Mayor Skippy vs. Sophie she’d beat his tiny butt.

    Did alot of shopping online a few weeks ago. Just getting FREE Kindle books from Amazon today!

    as much as I possibly can. I don’t want to go shopping between now and January in a store. I get too stabby. However my husband would rock out the Sophie shirt. He has been a fan since he was little. He was the weird kid with a fascination for mayors. I would buy him one- but he is already over his budgeted allotment.

    It will be about 60% online. I still like to go out shopping and feel the craziness that is the holiday shopping season. Then come home to the Burgh and have it all melt away!

    Would say 75% of the shopping is done with 60% done online and the rest in stores.

    I’m about 50% done shopping – this year I’ve found more in stores than online – until today…I’d have to say 35% in stores, 15% online

    will do my shoping online (mostly) and at work, dodging the boss and looking like I’m busy. ‘Tis the season to get over with no guilt. I’ll get the boss something too!

    I am about the opposite of you, Ginny. One year my little brother and his wife returned everything I bought them online to the actual store. That kind of turned me off from online shopping (and shopping for them in general). I like to see and touch my purchases. :-)

    0% online by me since my wife does most (if not all) of the holiday shopping.

    Did I make it?!?

    This year I plan to try to bake as many of my presents as possible. I’ll probably buy a few online as well.
