Today is Cyber Monday – the “official” start to the online shopping season. Unlike Black Friday we can take advantage of retailer discounts from the comfort of our homes or work, and not stand in line at 3am. I don’t mind the camaraderie of the 3am shopping excursion but shopping in PJ’s is always fun. There are many Cyber Monday websites to peruse and much like Black Friday sites, they list sales, discount information etc,(www.cybermonday.com, www.cybermondaycentral.com).
One site that has become a return favorite is www.amazon.com No surprise it is on track to having the most (US) traffic for Black Friday and Cyber Monday again this year. For Cyber Monday, Amazon has listed a “Cyber Monday” section which is neatly organized by category. With a great online selection (books, movies, music, games, electronics, toys, apparel…) you can easily check off your entire holiday list on one site. Bonus shopping features include the ”wish list”, the Amazon credit card which offers rebates, the FREE shipping specials, the easy to use package tracker, the price comparisons and product reviews. I plan to use Amazon for most of my holiday shopping this year and will start today so I can meet shipping deadlines without any stress.
I also plan to visit those Cyber Monday sites I mentioned above and will update deals I love throughout the day on Twitter. You can follow me on twitter for Cyber Monday updates as well as holiday countdown deals from now until the end of the year. www.twitter.com/jessicashops
