Nerd note: If you’re shopping on Super Saturday, you might consider doing your shopping in brick-and-mortar stores instead of online. Dec. 19 is cutting it pretty close if you want your shipped gifts to arrive by Christmas. If you do order online, check out the store’s shipping policies before making the purchase.
