How to conquer Cyber Monday

29 11 2010

While getting up at absurd hours in the morning and fighting hoards of shoppers on Black Friday may your cup of tea, many prefer to stay in their pajamas and take advantage of deals online.

Today is Cyber Monday, and major retailers are offering killer deals.

Here are a few hot gifts that are on sale today:


Hoodiebuddie is a brand new product that fuses fashion with function. Built-in headphones are a crucial asset for any iPod owner or workout fiend. What better gift for that young, hip person on your list? If you missed the 50% off Cyber Monday deal, you can still get 10% off by “liking” Hoodiebuddie on Facebook.


This year’s hot item, the iPad, is 10% off on eBay today.


Urban Outfitters
has unique gifts like vintage-styled roller skates and Budweiser Christmas sweaters. Many items are marked down today and shipping is free!

Sites like Groupon offer daily, localized deals on experiences (like hot air baloon rides or salsa lessons) at a discounted rate with the option of giving it as a gift or using it for yourself. You usually have about a deal to use the Groupon. Livingsocial is a similar site offering 1-day deals on restaurants, spas and events.
