Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday - more shopping craziness. The term Cyber Monday, was created five years ago by the National Retail Federation, to ring in the unofficial start of online holiday shopping (beware retail marketing wizardry).

The Huffington Post has some great tips for Cyber Monday shopping:
  1. On twitter, follow @CyberMonday, @CyberMondayNews, or @BestCyberMonday. Try following specific retailers, too, such as @Nordstrom or @Target.
  2. Take a look at and for lists of the best online deals.
  3. Visit Wallet Pop, for even more ideas for extra savings.
Don't forget to start at eBates (see my previous post authored by Boulder Locavore; it includes detailed information on navigating eBates).

Be careful, though. The Early Show on CBS warns to beware bogus bargains, lookalike sites and free shipping.

If you've got travel on your mind instead of traditional gifts, take a look at these deals:
  1. is offering up to 50% off if you book online and use code 4DAY.
  2. NYC - The Duane Street Hotel in Tribeca $129/night (usually $350/night) if you book today between 1:29pm and 1:58pm today, EST. Stay is good January 1-Februay 28 (excluding dates around Valentine's Day).
  3. Starwood Hotels, including Westin, is offering special rates January 1-April 30, use code CYBERLTO.
