Super Savings on Cyber Monday!

Cyber Monday is the online equivalent to Black Friday which was named by the National Retail Federation in ’05. NRF conducted surveys and found out that 87% of American retailers are hosting special Cyber Monday promotions, which are up from 84% from last year. It also found that 96.5 million Americans plan to shop online on Cyber Monday-mostly from home-up from 85 million last year.

"Consumers liked the promotions they saw, and are responding," said Mr. Squire, chief strategy officer of Coremetrics Inc. "In the past, Cyber Monday has beaten Black Friday by 10% to 20%, and our expectation is that we will see similar growth this year," he said.

Check out J.C. Penneys, GNC, Blue Nile, and Amazon if you are looking for the largest cyber sales on the net!

2011 Hyundai Equus Prototype- First Ride at Conicelli Hyundai

As if the Hyundai Genesis wasn’t a huge upgrade for Hyundai, you won’t believe the Hyundai Equus. Conicelli Hyundai was fortunate enough to receive Hyundai’s Equus Prototype in the showroom for two weeks. This 368-horsepower 4.6-liter Lambda V8 Equus is taking Hyundai north of the $50,000 barrier for the first time in the U.S.

Equus (Latin word for Horse) entry into the U.S. market has been the worst kept secret since Henry Ford leaked word about the flathead V8 back in 1931.

"Our goal with the Equus isn't volume," he says while passing a black Mercedes-Benz S550 on the right. "It's image. We want to show the world we can make the finest sedans in the world." says John Krafcik, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor America.

Come check out the car for yourself at Conicelli Hyundai located at 1200 Ridge Pike in Conshohocken, Pa.  Check out pictures taken of this new vehicle on our Facebook page, and let us know what you think by posting a comment below!

The Man Behind the Philly Phanatic

Ever wonder who’s the big galoot in the shag-green suit that dances on top of the dugout and drives an ATV around Citizen’s Bank Park? It’s forty-four year old, Tom Burgoyne, whose 5’10”, 170 pounds, and has been wearing the thirty-five pound Phanatic suit for sixteen years, since the 1994 season.

Tom wasn’t green to being a Mascot when he first started with the Phillies. He had been the Hawk at Saint Joseph’s Prep when he was in college. Burgoyne remembers the day in 1989 when he browsed the want ads in The Philadelphia Inquirer. He was a year out of business school at Drexel and checked first under S, for sales, and then under M, for management. That's when he saw it: Mascot Wanted. He answered the blind ad, which turned out to be for the backup Phanatic. He performed more than a thousand times in shopping malls and classrooms before, the original Phanatic, Dave Raymond, which left after sixteen years in 1994. Burgoyne has been the main man ever since.

"It's supposed to look easy," Burgoyne says. "But it's not. This is hard work. Sure, it smells, and you get the occasional foul ball to the noggin. I sweat through five T-shirts a night. But that's no big deal. You put some stick-on air fresheners in the head and Febreze under the armpits at night and you're good to go."

Phillies Have High Hopes After 8-6 Win Over Yankees in Game 5!

The bats woke up for the Phillies last night when they were able to hold the Yankees in the 9th inning and pull out an 8-6 victory in game five! This will bring the Phillies trailing 2-3 to the Yanks in the series.

They looked like a whole different team from the previous night! Phenomenal pitching by Cliff Lee and you can’t forget the heavy-hitting machine, Chase Utley, knocking in four runs with his two homers last night. He is now tied at five homers with Reggie Jackson for the all time record in World Series homeruns.

You can check out Game 6 back in the Big Apple on Wednesday at 7:57 EST.

Winter Car Care Tips from the Pros

Now that our clocks have been turned back an hour and the leaves have started changing colors, I’m going to list a few tips that are provided by the nonprofit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) to take care of your car in the upcoming cold weather. ASE is the group that certifies automotive technicians.

1. Change your oil as specified in the owner’s manual (usually 3,000 miles). In cold climates, use winter grade oil.
2. In case of an emergency, make sure that you have gloves, boots, blankets, flares, a small shovel, sand, tire chains, a flashlight, and a cell phone.
3. Make sure your heater and defroster is in good working conditions. You don’t want to be stuck in the freezing cold with no heat!
4. Worn tires will be little help in the winter weather. You should examine tires for the remaining tread life, uneven wearing, and cupping. Also check the sidewalls for cuts and nicks. Check tire pressure once a month. Rotate as recommended and have a spare tire and a jack that is in good condition.
