Cyber Monday deals stretch beyond the first day of the week

Posted: Updated:
U.S. -

Cyber Monday has its roots in the old desktop computer and wired internet. Shoppers would return to the office after Thanksgiving holiday, and hop online.  Even with access to the internet in pockets, purses, couches and cafes, retailers say Cyber Monday hasn't lost its luster.

The National Retail Federation says eight in ten retailers will offer special Cyber Monday deals.

Laura Harders of the blog, Beltway Bargain Mom, says it's important to be able to separate the good deals from the great deals.

“Take advantage of deal sites as well as online databases that help collect all that information in one place,” said Harders.  “It really takes the hard work out of it for you.”

Sites like Savings.com and Pricegrabber.com, pull coupons and deals from multiple retailers.

Also, the deep online discounts will go beyond Cyber Monday.  After cyber week, Harders says she's noticed another trend.

“Around December 15th, a lot of discounts on jewelry, handbags, other apparel items,” Harders said. “They're trying to clear their inventory, and they know us as consumers are looking to buy all of those holiday gifts.”

It all times well with the annual Free Shipping Day. Hundreds of retailers will participate on December 18th, with delivery guaranteed by Christmas.
