How to Shop Cyber Monday 2012

If you didn’t have the time or energy to sit outside waiting for hours to shop Black Friday sales, never fear!  The online shopping industry has a holiday of it’s own — and you can take the weekend off before jumping back in to gift shopping. 🙂

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday takes place the Monday after Thanksgiving, and is a shopping holiday similar to Black Friday, but for online retailers.  The “shopping holiday” officially began in 2005.  According to Shop.org, 77% of online retailers say their sales increase substantially the Monday after Thanksgiving — meaning discounts and promotions comparable to those of Black Friday, that can be shopped from the comfort of your couch or office chair!  Starting in 2006, Shop.org has facilitated the CyberMonday.com site, an aggregated collection of Cyber Monday deals.  This year, many retailers, including local shops, are participating.  Check your favorite stores’ websites to see if they are extending their Black Friday sales to Monday or offering special online offers!

Whether you’re looking for fashions for your friends, toys for your kids, or tech for your man, we’ve collected a list of must-shop retailers this Cyber Monday.
