Cyber Monday Funeral Deals


Is your funeral home offering any “Cyber Monday” funeral deals? Ok, before some of you get upset, this is a joke…kinda.

Black Friday passed without any specials at US funeral homes, except for in Pennsylvania where Caleb Wilde had a huge turn out at his family’s funeral home, complete with fights and all!

Yes, Caleb’s post was a joke but Cyber Monday really does hold a real opportunity for funeral homes to take part in the online shopping spree.

How about getting rid of those old urns that are just taking up space in the arrangement office, or that casket you bought just to see if it would sell? Isn’t there an opportunity to sell those online with a huge discount or even at cost? I bet it would generate a lot of press. Sure some would be negative but that would happen regardless of what you were making the news for. One thing is for sure, it would start the conversation around death and your funeral home would be top of mind.

Do you think Basic Funerals will be offering any Cyber Monday specials?
