There was a time not so long ago when going to the mall during the busy holiday season was anything but a peaceful ride through the countryside on Santa's sleigh.  It typically meant braving the crowds, racing around to find the best deal, and hoping you didn't forget anyone on your list forcing you to go back and do it all over again.


Those days are thankfully over. That's because AT&T has upgraded its service in many of the malls in the region. It means you have even more power to search for the best deals while you're out and about thus helping you avoid spending too much money and time among the masses.


It's now easier and faster to comparison shop, text friends while gazing at the window displays, or find the same clothes as your favorite Instagram celebrity.


And if your significant other insists you tag along, the upgraded service will allow you to pass the time watching videos, playing games, texting or just talking on the phone without fear of drop outs or slow service.


The other malls recently upgraded are Arundel Mills Mall, Fair Oaks Mall, Fashion Center Mall, Potomac Mills Mall, Westfield Montgomery Mall and Westfield Annapolis Mall.

AT&T also has a few apps to help you during the holiday shopping season. shop savvy uses your own smartphone to scan barcodes and then searches for the best deal in town.

Santa's Bag- Christmas Gift List allows you to set budgets, plan gifts, create wish lists and shopping lists, import recipient information and allows you to follow your progress.

And maybe best of all is Find My Car Smarter which saves your car's location so if you do forget where you parked it after a log day shopping you'll find it fast and easy.
