For people who hate Black Friday's long lines, there's Cyber Monday. For people who hate both, here's another option: "Campsgiving."
Hipcamp, the Airbnb for camping, said that Campsgiving bookings are up four times over last year. (The event started as a social media hashtag shared by people who rejected popular holiday activities — like door buster sales — in favor of unplugging and being outdoors.)
"They don't want to go and buy a bunch of stuff on Black Friday," said Hipcamp CEO Alyssa Ravasio.
In coordination with outdoor retailer REI's #OptOutside initiative, which encourages people to get outside instead of hit the malls on Black Friday, Hipcamp is waiving all service fees over the Thanksgiving weekend. In fact, more retailers are closed on Thanksgiving Day this year than ever before.
