SheFinds News: Wake Up & Shop!
November 21, 2005
Target goes to extreme (or extremely thoughful?) measures to make sure you don’t oversleep the on the biggest shopping day of the year. For the second year in a row, Target is offering free wake-up calls from an all-star lineup including model Carolyn Murphy, country crooner Brad Paisley, and Kermit the Frog amongst other characters. You can also can sign up for a “tuck-in service.” As the tryptophan from the turkey begins to lull you to sleep, Target will call and remind you to have ‘sweet shopping dreams.’ Tuck-in options include a herd of baa-ing sheep, a bedtime story from an oh-so-comforting grandma or a guy so boring that even insomniacs will snooze.
By registering for these calls online at Target.com you can customize the service, choosing who calls you and when- all in time to shop the Target Two-Day Sale on Friday and Saturday. Deep sleeper? Relax, you can have a raucous motorcycle gang, peppy cheerleader or a rousing Mariachi band call. I say, if you can’t remember to wake up at 4AM on Black Friday than you aren’t a real bargain hunter, but Target is trying to make sure that everyone can earn a merit badge in Super Sale Shopping. I got mine at a young age by dutifully trailing my Mom around. Nowadays, I prefer to sleep in, avoid the cross-eyed insanity of Early Bird Specials and shop online. Find free shipping
and gifts for everyone on the list at Target.com.
