Ho ho... no thanks: Maybe Santa made a mistake in checking his list this year, or maybe we were all naughty enough to receive the gift of price hikes from Dish, DirecTV/AT&T, and Time Warner Cable. Ho ho nooooo.
There's hope for you yet: Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, and we hate to point this out... but it's a bit empty under your Christmas tree. Don't worry -- we've got some great last-minute gift ideas to save your keester in the nick of time.
He's a scammy one, Mr. Grinch: If you're still waiting patiently for those last packages to show up at your door, there’s another kind of delivery that you should be on the lookout for.
No backsies: Debt collectors might be able to take you to court, but there's no guarantee you'll be able to sue them in return.
Rent the retail: Some of those “exclusive” items from Rent the Runway can be found on department store websites, where you can buy them for less than it would cost to rent them.
Pour the egg nog, stretch out by the fire and continue clicking below for more Consumerist cheer.
