The most recent review of price cutting is that they are both deep and broad. Our quick survey of both brick and mortar coupons and online savings codes shows that discounting is ramping up dramatically.  This will likely pressure for Q4 profit margins.

Attached are 2 PDFs we scraped together (from various shopping fiends we know); These represent almost 40 major retailers discounting for the first post Black Friday weekend's sales events.

I've been buying lots more stuff from buy.com and toysrus.com this season and less on amazon.com because of all the google coupons.
