By this time next week we will all know the teams ranked for the first time ever by the College Football Playoff Selection Committee.

Like everything that's new, there is potential for confusion. Therefore, if you'd like to learn more about the selection committee, just click here. Likewise, if you are curious about the rankings and what they will mean, click here.

Like many, we at FanFare are excited about the prospect of a playoff system! Despite any pros or cons pursuant to the current incarnation, one thing is better without debate. By the end of the season (including conference championship games), there will be two more teams that will still have a shot at a national title. After which, the four teams that qualify for the playoffs can earn the title on the football field and not some poll or computer ranking program!

In any given year, millions of Americans will buy fine jewelry and watches, and many of them will make more than one purchase. Placing impulse items, such as Suntime Collegiate Watches near your cash registers can be a highly successful sales tactic.

The most comprehensive study of impulse purchases was performed in 2002. According to the study, conducted by Leo J. Shapiro and Associates for Marketing Support Inc. of Chicago, almost one-third of all consumers make a sizable impulse purchase every week. The median purchase was reported to be over $30. Of specific interest to many retailers, the study found that about 25 percent of impulse purchases are made in specialty stores. Another important contributor to successful impulse items is the ability for the customer to have a personal connection to a product. Custom jewelry and personalized items work for this reason. Suntime Collegiate Watches are a perfect example of an impulse product that can add to your bottom line each year.
