Oooo! A dream house in Italy for a dollar!! Does your ugly holiday sweater have a biscuit pocket? And OK boomer… Gen Z might be the ones to save the mall! Get in the chat with Anna Roisman, Monroe Martin, Jade Elliott, and BuzzFeed News reporter Vanessa Wong on “Did You See This?” I’m a huge Red Lobster advocate. I believe in eating two baskets before every dinner comes. But I am not a fan of eating linty biscuits out of my sweaters, or anyone else’s! Oh, I would definitely get that Red Lobster biscuit sweater. The only problem is you got to watch out when you hug people, because you’re gonna squish your
biscuits. OK, I am all about the biscuits. I love them, but I don’t want to wear them. I would rather you knit me, onto the oven. So I can just eat them out of the oven, then carry them in my sweater. I’m so excited about this. Usually if I have cash on me, I’ll have like a 20 dollar bill. So it sounds like I’m buying 20 houses in Italy, and you’re all invited over for dinner. You know what? I got like two thousand dollars… I’m ’bout to buy a whole city!!! I’m born and raised New Yorker, so owning something here is over a million dollars. Now, you’re tell me in Italy, I could buy a house for a dollar?!? Maaaan. Ci vediamo dopo New York! I think that’s Google translated for “See you later New Yorok”. . Gen Z, who are 22 and younger, are less likely than millennials and Gen X to shop online, according to a new survey from NPD Group. This is because Gen Z doesn’t have credit cards or too many funds, but they still do enjoy the experience of shopping with others IRL. Millennials, on the other hand, do enjoy shopping online for the holidays. Here’s the real key to not losing your mind during the holidays. Just don’t go shopping. I just give everyone an envelope full of cash. Ok, This is cute. Gen Zers are going into actual stores to do their shopping. I love it. But let’s be real. They’re not going to actually be off of their cellphones, OK? You could probably make a great TikTok at the mall. Gen Z loves shopping in the mall still because they live in their mama’s
house! When I lived in my mama’s house, the food court was my second bedroom as well. My colleague Nicole spoke to a woman who found a side hustle reviewing products on Amazon this year. She spent over $15,000 buying stuff. She requested anonymity because Amazon bans giving away products in exchange for reviews. The way it works is she gets contacted by the seller, then she has to purchase the product. She gives it a five star review almost every single time. Then she gets to keep the products and then she’s reimbursed either through gift cards or PayPal. She says she does it because she loves getting free stuff. She’s sold some of it, given some of it away to friends and family, but she thinks she’s operating at a 10% loss. Sellers are using her and other people like her to get good reviews, and boost their sales and visibility on Amazon. The woman says she doesn’t think she’s gaming the system. She’s just helping brands to grow their business. But she says she no longer looks at reviews when she’s shopping on Amazon because of her knowledge of fake reviews. In a statement to BuzzFeed News, Amazon said that manipulating customer reviews is strictly prohibited. Hey, Amazon what’s up? I know how to write! Give me some free stuff! I’ll do whatever you need, man. I’ll write essays if you need me to. OK. I love Amazon reviews. I live for the bad ones. I’ve written a few myself! Because nothing feels as good as releasing your anger into the internet when you are not happy with what you got!
