Cyber Monday has been the largest online shopping holiday in the past two years, according to Shop.org, an arm of the National Retail Federation that focuses on Internet retailers.
Generally, bargain experts agree that Cyber Monday, which is Monday, Dec. 2 this year, is a day to focus on deals on clothing and shoes. It is also a time for smaller online retailers to shine. You can read more about Cyber Monday trends at dailypress.com/shopping.
Some general Cyber Monday tips: Always look for a coupon code. There are thousands of extra-percent-off codes flying around Cyber Space today. You can search for them at websites like retailmenot.com. In addition, shop through a cash-back website, like ebates.com, which is doubling its usual cash-back percentages for Cyber Monday.
