Target shoppers should stock up on discounted gift cards on Dec. 3. If a Target gift card – or any clothes, toys or other products you might be buying at Target for friends and family this season -- is on your holiday shopping list, Sunday is the day to save even more. That’s when the upscale discount retailer will knock 10 percent of the cost of its gift cards, an annual one-day-only event eagerly anticipated by Target shoppers. The deal is available in stores and on Target’s website.
Here's a roundup of doorbusters and deals from Walmart, Costco, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Home Depot, Lowe's and Amazon. Americans and shopping go together like turkey and stuffing. And at no time does the shopping get more frenzied than Black Friday. According to a holiday survey conducted for Ebates, a cash-back shopping site, more than three-quarters of those surveyed plan to buy gifts on Black Friday.
Walmart's Black Friday deals will be available in stores starting at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving Day. On Walmart.com, the Black Friday deals begin even earlier: at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on Thanksgiving. Lehmann of BradsDeals.com thinks the doorbusters might be worth the wait. "For Walmart specifically," she says, "there are always going to be deals in-store that you just can't get online."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
