Looking to stock up on presents for the holidays? Several furry retailers are participating in 'Cyber Monday', including Rabbit Valley (15% off $100 or more, in-stock only, to Dec. 1, code 'Cyber2011'), FurPlanet (15% off everything, 'FOXES') and FetishZone (NSFW; up to 50% off).
Bad Dragon had (NSFW) 40% off black, medium-firm toys for Black Friday, but sold out; a 10% global discount remains in effect for the next ten hours. [scottbob3/reddit]

Dang, wish I had held off on that order from last week to FurPlanet ^.^;;;
Furries are voting this down because when they read Cyber Monday, they thought it was a day everyone engaged in raunchy texting sessions...
I thought it was more because this just seems like an advert than news.

Well getting this information out quickly was probably more necessary then fleshing it out and taking a long time editing, otherwise the information would have been useless by the time it was published.
I saw it early Monday morning and had to post two paragraphs or nothing at all. I would have posted it as a newsbyte (or skipped it altogether if it was just one store), but it ended up too long, especially when the bit about Bad Dragon selling out – arguably the most newswothy part, since it indicates high demand.
I don't see anything wrong with promoting furry business in general as long as our readers are interested. We have to be careful about boosting one business over another, but this is true for conventions and websites, too.
We don't do paid posts (I get asked occasionally, mostly by non-furries), but if people wish to advertise with us, they're welcome to.
Is that what that zombie Steve Jobs spam was all about?
No, that was spam. Or possibly zombies.
Sounds like the awesomest spam ever, actually.
I just thought it was downvoted because people don't like to reminded furries buy ... rather odd dildos sometimes.
Maybe they were all gag gifts?
But there are (or have been; I don't know if they are currently marketed) legitimately licensed Hello Kitty and Mickey Mouse dildos in Japan. How non-gag can you get?
Actually, I'm gagging at the thought.
Hey, everybody, pun thread!
They couldn't have been gag gifts, I don't think Bad Dragons sells gags... yet.
