SUPER BOWL XLVI: AMERICANS TO SPEND $11 BILLION

More than 173 million Americans are expected to spend $11 billion on party essentials including 3D televisions, team decor, apparel, food and beverages. Of those  expecting to watch the game, almost 63 million are planning to attend a party – up from last year’s 61 million, according to a new survey by the Retail Advertising and Marketing Association.  About 5 million have or will buy a new television especially for the day. While commercials are king for the day, there are many companies using more cross-channel methods to draw viewers to their own websites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. . .Meanwhile, American Express has shot out a promotional pitch to card-holders: “Immerse yourself in a truly European experience. . .Costa Concordia is sailing Feb. 25.” Yep. The ship that sunk and lost passengers. . .Then there’s Coronet Travel’s Joan Kiburz:“How about the way the Republicans are burying each other and giving President Obama enough material on them for his campaign?”
