1. CYBER MONDAY GIFT GUIDE
The National Retail Federation estimates that 127 million consumers shopped last year on Cyber Monday, when retailers offer Black Friday-like deals online. Although the discounts typically are not as big, shoppers can still save money on Christmas presents while avoiding the crowds and cold. Cyber Monday (Nov. 30) has become Cyber Week at some retailers, with deals going live as early as Saturday and extending to Dec. 5 in some cases. Cheapism.com has compared sneak previews and retailer ads to narrow down the top Cyber Monday deals for 25 popular gifts.
