Staycation or vacation? The choice is yours
Thanksgiving is over and now it’s time to shop. Of course, the winter holidays look a little different this year with Nevada in the middle of a “pause” or enhanced restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19. If you can’t escape the allure of in-person shopping, wear a mask and do your best to keep a distance of six-feet from other patrons. However, if you prefer the safety of shopping from behind a laptop (or on your smartphone), Cyber Monday could be your best bet for seasonal discounts. Check out a few top deals that any Las Vegan will love.

Amazon Shopping (Yes, That Amazon)
We all know too well — Amazon is hard to resist. While shopping for anything and everything from the online retail giant, make your purchases count toward helping a good cause. Select a favorite local charity (like Opportunity Village, Three Square food bank, HELP of Southern Nevada, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children or many, many more) and browse under Amazon Smile. A portion of anything you buy on Cyber Monday (or any other day of the year) will be donated to your charity of choice. All that spending adds up — and all you have to do is change your browsing window.
