Has Black Friday lost its mystique? Are the deals just not what they use to be? For many years, Black Friday, the day when shoppers gather to raid the local strip malls, has been thought of as the best day to find a deal but lately the deals are far from amazing. Noticing a lackluster deal is half the battle while the other half is finding the genuine deals that will help save you money. Reorganize your Black Friday shopping list by making alkaline batteries a top priority. The gift that keeps on giving and the deal with the biggest payoff!
Since the early 2000’s, Black Friday has slowly transitioned from a bargain hunters’ dream to a national holiday. Black Friday has become less about deals and more about profits – putting retailers in a festive mood. What retailers fail to mention is that Black Friday has morphed into Christmas Eve, when deals are hard to find and prices are cleverly reduced. Remember when 60% off was the norm and door-busting deals lived up to their name? Now’s the time to craft a new holiday shopping strategy and show the retailers you mean business. More...

Do you bleed red, white and blue? Does the national anthem send shivers down your spine? Feelings of patriotic fervor are common for the country you call home and for some buying products that are made in the USA is an absolute necessity. Rayovac prides itself on being American-made for well over a century. Score one for American ingenuity.
The story of Rayovac begins in 1906; the American public was searching for a new business to provide goods and services along with jobs in manufacturing. Blue collared jobs were a staple of the early 1900’s and Rayovac carved out a niche in the US market for alkaline batteries. As the years progressed, a permanent facility was erected in Fennimore, WI dedicated to the production of alkaline batteries. More...

Finding the perfect gift for all your loved ones can be exhausting. You make a list, check it twice and then make the trip to a number of stores gathering items to put under the tree. With holiday chores piling up it’s easy to forget the batteries.
The burden of a holiday to-do list has gotten the best of many a mom but not you – not this year. Forgetting the batteries is holiday faux pas number one. Imagine a household with no fresh batteries on Christmas morning. The chaos would be unbearable. You can either search the house and eventually “borrow” the remote batteries or bundle up and venture out into the cold weather and brave the holiday traffic.
Whether your late or early, holiday shopping can be tough when the traffic is bad and store parking lots are packed to the brim. No one wants to make a repeat trip, especially when the temperature outside is borderline freezing. Not to mention the stores are usually bolted shut and closed for the holidays. Avoid the holiday disaster and pick up the batteries the first go-round.
Holiday shopping requires a plan of attack and buying the batteries should be your first objective. Rayovac alkaline batteries are easily found at any major retailer and can power all the gizmos and gadgets you’d likely purchase. When you approach the checkout aisle - be stealthy and grab a pack to pair with your holiday gifts. Your family will thank you later.
