THE SKY'S THE LIMIT
Bargain hunters aren't the only ones who can benefit from holiday sales. Black Friday and Cyber Monday provide perfect excuses to go overboard, particularly when money is no object -- so for all the lottery winners, hedge fund managers, or anyone with hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend indulging everyone on their list (or those of us who like to dream of that day), this list is for you. Seasonal discounts on these splurges vary from nice to none, but when you're going overboard, does price really matter?
