Visit the website of this customer-focused rate-a-retailer campaign conducted by “Stand for Christmas” (by Focus on the Family Action), where consumers can post their ratings based on their shopping experiences.  The clear message is: don’t spend your Christmas dollars at the stores owned by Naughty retailers who don’t acknowledge Christmas.

Advertisements Celebrates Christmas!

December 11, 2008 is becoming one of my favorite online Christmas retailers. 

You may remember last year’s post about their TV commercial.  Well, they’ve made progress since then…

Click the ad and have a look at their 12 Days of Christmas promotion.

Now they’re showing their Christmas spirit ~ Merry Christmas!


Overstock Commercial

November 12, 2007

Overstock has a good commercial: National TV Commercial- O Christmas in a Box (you’ll need Quicktime).

But, then you get to their website to find a mixed bag.  The tab label says “Holiday” and the page header reads “Holiday” Gift Ideas. 

But then they have a Top 100 Christmas Gifts section, a Toys for Tots link to Help Children Experience the Joy of Christmas, and a section for Christmas Decorations.

Then, they revert back to links for “Holiday” music, movies, & books.  I didn’t look through all the pages, but I only found Christmas music, movies, and books on those pages.  Since everything here is for the celebration of Christmas, why not say so?  Are there any movies this time of year for any holiday other than Christmas anyway?

Then, to top it off, they have their 2007 “Holiday” Order Deadlines For Delivery By December 24.  Since the significant date for delivery is Christmas Eve, why not say so?

While there are several good solid references to Christmas made by Overstock, due to the schizophrenic nature of their website, I’m rating them Mostly Naughty.
