While the country counts down to Thanksgiving, Hanukkah or Christmas, savvy shoppers are looking forward to another “holiday” of sorts. Black Friday is quickly approaching and the rumored deals are only getting better as TV commercials and ad campaigns announce the lowest prices ever on electronics, clothing, even vacation getaways.
But there may be one shopping deal that you aren’t aware of. Many big shopping retailers provide more than just amazing deals. Companies are giving away thousands in scholarship dollars, year round, to students excelling in the classroom, community and in their school organizations.
