Have a Cyber Monday Game Plan

Posted: Updated:

We're just days away  from two of the biggest shopping days of the year... Black Friday and Cyber Monday.   Since Cyber Monday debuted 5 years ago, it's become one of the hottest days to shop.  A lot of people don't like fighting the crowds, so they shop online instead.  Here are some tips to find those great deals with a click of a mouse.

Several web sites track the latest deals, including cybermonday.com and cybermondayonlinedeals.com.  But before you buy, be sure you have a game plan to save money.  According to Bankrate.com the strategies include:

  • Pay attention to extra costs.  Shipping, handling and taxes can easily double the cost of an inexpensive holiday gift.
  • Don't get sidetracked by things you don't need.  You won't save money buying stuff you'll never use.
  • Use the wisdom of crowds.   Check out bargain message boards like Slickdeals.net and FatWallet.com.  Sometimes posters will comment that there's a better deal for a product at another site or how to get an additional 10% off.

By one estimate, online shoppers spent about $900 million on Cyber Monday last year.  And there's no indication it'll be any less this year.  If you're one of those shoppers, make sure you have a plan of attack to save money.
