Cyber Monday is the online equivalent of Black Friday. For those who hate going to stores and fighting the holiday shopping crowds, it is a great alternative. Cyber Monday takes place on the Monday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
Cyber Monday 2014 is Monday, Monday, December 1st. Prepare early though.
Here are some tips to help save you money:
-Know what you want and prepare ahead of time. Do some online research and make a list of retailers to watch.
-Be flexible. Consider alternatives. The first brand for example may not be on sale, but the second brand is $100s of dollars off.
-Look for Cyber Monday Sales before Cyber Monday. Some retailers start their sales the weekend before, or even on Black Friday. By the time Monday arrives, some of their best deals could be sold out.
-When you find the item you are interested in, a search engine like Google can be your best friend. Try performing searches like:
(product name) sale
(product name) coupon
(model number) sale
(model number) coupon
You may find the item is less somewhere else.
-Consider shipping. Paying a slightly higher price for an item with free shipping may actually save you money.
