After the hustle and bustle of Black Friday, comes the relaxed and chilled version known as Cyber Monday. We love the ease and simplicity of Cyber Monday- simply roll out of bed, grab a cup of coffee, turn on your laptop, cell phone, or tablet and start shopping from your living room. That’s right, you can pretty much access all of the amazing sales they offer inside stores on Black Friday, online during Cyber Monday! In order to make the most of this divine shopping day, you’ll want to have a game plan. That’s why we’ve rounded up three tips to keeping your wallet happy and your shopping stress free on Cyber Monday.

Stick to a List
So, now that you know how to get the best deals, which items should you be on the lookout for? You’d be surprised how many great things you can find on Cyber Monday that mirror Black Friday. Best Buy, Amazon, Philips, Samsung have amazing deals on electronics like an Xbox, Mac Book, and TVs with free shipping to boot! You can snag great deals on just about anything from clothing to household appliances on Cyber Monday, and all you have to do is just type in the right domain. Initially Cyber Monday was dedicated to just amazing deals on clothes and shoes. But, over the years they’ve grown to provide you with more to choose from and as good, if not better deals offered than on Black Friday. Start browsing through the sales, make a list of what you’re planning to purchase, and then dominate Cyber Monday by reigning in the savings.
While shopping in store, you can grab a retail associate to help you answer any questions you may have. When shopping online however, it’s important that you know what to be aware of in order to avoid scammers. Last year the Internet Crime Complain Center put out a list of tips to help shoppers make purchases safely. Here are a few key tips to keep in mind:
- Always compare the link in the e-mail to the web address link you are directed to and determine if they match.
- Do not respond to unsolicited (spam) e-mail.
- Avoid filling out forms contained in e-mail messages that ask for personal information.
Cyber Monday is a comfortable and exciting alternative to Black Friday. Simply remember these three tips and you’ll be on your way to scoring big savings while shopping safely!
