Among them is Mohammed Halabi, who is with the website, mybillsarehigh.com. The site offers advice to people and businesses who want to reduce their cellphone, landline, internet and cable bills.

“Definitely take advantage of this time. Go after a good deal and lock it in for two years,” Halabi said.

He’s urging shoppers to skip the mall madness and simply pick up the phone.

“Calling it in would be the best approach because at store level they can’t really do anything above and beyond the status quo of what they have available for them.”
