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. It really takes the hard work out of it for you. Sites like http://savings.com and pricegrabber.com, and of course. Beloit based http://fatwallet.com, which does offer a one stop Cyber Monday Deal Finder.

Fatwallet.com even commissioned a survey which showed 60% of those 40 and under who responded will shop on Cyber Monday, typically in the morning. 1/3rd of those will actually get started Sunday night looking for deals. “Even more so than last year, retailers are pushing for earlier shopping opportunities during traditional sales events,” stated FatWallet Spokesperson, Brent Shelton.
Two other dates to keep in mind. Around December 15th, a lot of discounts appear on jewelery, handbags, other apparel items. They're trying to clear their inventory, and they know us as consumers are looking to buy all of those holiday gifts. That times well with the annual free shipping day. Hundreds of retailers will participate on Cecember 18th, with delivery guaranteed by Christmas.
