Every year deal seekers who aren't still too tired form Thanksgiving festivities head out from their homes and into stores across the nation in search of steals, deals, and steep discounts for the shopping tradition known as Black Friday. With major retailers offering big savings on hot items and all manner of inexpensive gifts, massive crowds have flocked to their local malls and stores early Friday morning hoping to get a hold of "door buster" deals in limited supply. Over the past few years, however, Black Friday has begun earlier and earlier, with many now stores starting their sales on Thanksgiving itself and opening their doors during what has traditionally been dinner time on Turkey Day.
Fortunately, Black Friday's continuing encroachment into Thanksgiving coupled with the enduring popularity of the Internet has given rise to a new shopping tradition perfect for anyone who doesn't want to sacrifice family time for a good sale, or would simply prefer avoiding all those long checkout lines and massive throngs of shoppers. Cyber Monday offers many of the same sales as Black Friday, as well as other discounts just for this new shopping tradition, and it isn't just limited to online retailers - many brick and mortar stores are also offering sales on their websites as well. In fact, Cyber Monday has become so popular that some sites are now expanding the deals into a full Cyber Weekend or even Cyber Week!
If you're looking to save a bundle without having to cut Thanksgiving dinner short or get out of bed early in the morning on your day off, then read on for more info on some of the best sales to be found online! Remember, many sites will rotate their sales or have limited quantities of particular items, so make sure the price you're expecting to pay is what's actually on your order before clicking that "buy" button.
