Dashing through the snow on a one-horse open sleigh. Over the fields we go, laughing all the way!
Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) November 1, 2006
"Dashing through the snow on a one-horse open sleigh. Over the fields we go, laughing all the way!" Yes, 'tis that magical time of year when retailers and toy stores send out thick catalogs filled with this season's trendiest fashions, the latest high-tech gadgets, and the hottest toys for children of all ages. As stores, catalogers and Internet retailers prepare for the biggest shopping extravaganza of the year, so are AP9 Passport to Fun members. AP9 Passport to Fun, a leading membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, offers members a wide variety of gift-giving ideas that will fit any budget as well as under the biggest of trees and inside the smallest of stockings.

AP9 PassportToFun members can find savings for almost everything on their shopping list, from gifts to home décor, simply by logging on to DealPass – all in the comfort of their own home while roasting chestnuts on an open fire.
AP9 PassportToFun offers a few ideas on how to help you plan for the upcoming holiday season.
-- Making a list and checking it twice. Does this sound familiar? Driving around in search of a parking place for 20 minutes, standing in lines that seem endless or finding the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for person only to discover it's the wrong size. Before battling the shopping malls this holiday season, shoppers need to make sure they are properly armed and organized by creating a holiday checklist. First, write down all the items that need to be purchased, indicate color, make and model, size and budgeted price next to each item. Second, jot down the store where each item is available. By creating a checklist, consumers should find themselves completing their shopping in a timely manner while staying within their holiday budget.
-- Silver and Gold. Once the presents have been purchased, it is time to wrap them! It is a good idea to keep all the wrapping paper, tape, and scissors all together in an organizer. This way all the needed materials can be found in one place. Please also keep in mind that wrapping paper does not have to be expensive. Using plain paper and a rubber stamp for embellishment can make a present look like it was professionally wrapped, but at a fraction of the price. Plus, it is a fun project that kids can get involved in.
-- Deck the halls with boughs of holly. Not all of us get as carried away with outdoor holiday lighting as Chevy Chase did in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, but for those who enjoy adding a little sparkle to the neighborhood, be sure to buy lighting that is made for outdoor use. And remember to test and untangle the lights before hanging them.
-- The weather outside is frightful. By the time the holiday season arrives, much of the country is experiencing a drop in temperature. Take the time now to add to your holiday music, book, and movie collections, before they are sold out. Then get into the holiday spirit by roasting marshmallows by the fire, drinking a nice cup of hot cocoa and curling up with loved ones while listening to holiday tunes or watching a holiday classic on DVD.
In addition to offering discounts on gift cards for nationally-known retail stores across the country, AP9 PassportToFun also offers deeply discounted movie tickets, up to 15% off admissions to popular theme parks, 20% off gift cards for well-known restaurant chains and much more. Wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday season, concludes AP9 PassportToFun.
