Cyber Monday Shopping Tips:

  • Set up an account on the websites where you plan to shop.
  • Research the products and prioritize your list. You don't want to wait too long to buy because other people are out there shopping at the same time.
  • Use price comparison sites to make sure you're getting the best deal.

Cyber Monday has been growing every year since 2005, when only about 60 million hit the web for deals. The National Retail Federation reported it was the second-biggest online sales day of the holiday season with $887 million in purchases.
