6:00 Treat Yo Self

Ben, Dana and Giselle are really unsure of what they should get each other for Christmas. Instead, we might just treat ourselves to a nice meal together. Maybe ordering something off the entree menu and not getting the rail vodka. Stay tuned today for a big announcement this afternoon with Miles the DJ.

6:15 Standing In Line Waiting for Nintendo Classic 

Our $1000 Minute winner, Jonathan, has been waiting in line at a Best Buy in Eden Prairie to try and score a Nintendo Classic. It is a bit nippy outside, but this could be the last time to get your hands on one of these sought-after consoles. Good news for him, he got one!

6:30 Merry Christmas. We're Kicking You Out. 

We received some mail from our friend Michaela, who has run into a little situation with her boyfriend and his brother. She recently moved in with her boyfriend of two years, but his little brother just came home from studying abroad looking for a place to crash. Well it hasn't been just a couple of days, it's been a couple of months, and now he's asking to move in permanently. Ben, Dana and Giselle helped her out a little with the decision of what she should do next.

6:50 The Trend 

The possible last restock for the Nintendo Classic is today for major retailers like Best Buy and Target. Oprah sat down with Michelle Obama last night for her last interview as the First Lady of the United States. Finally, Miles the DJ has a big announcement this afternoon for a concert to kick off 2017.

7:15 We have to spend how much?

Christmas is around the corner (5 days to be exact), and deciding who you have to get presents for and how much you spend is quite the science. Make sure to double up for the people who take care of your children, and pretty much anyone who has ever done any service for you deserves a little extra.

7:30 $1000 Minute 

Casey was excited to play $1000 Minute this morning and she was so dang close too! She took home $80. Play with us!

8:15 Get To Know 

What is the worst gift you have ever received? Ben once received a Davy Crocket coon skin hat, something that Dana would totally want. Dana took an old gift and made it new again, just by changing out the picture in a frame from an ex girlfriend...to a new one.

8:30 SMAAASH Opens Today 

We heard from Fred, not Frank, the general manager over the at the new SMAAASH. In case you haven't heard, it is the new gaming and go kart racing indoor facility at the Mall of America. If you have ever wanted to build a rollercoaster then take a ride on it, their virtual reality stop is for you. They are now opened!
