Cyber Monday

The term Cyber Monday refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday, the ceremonial kick-off of the holiday online shopping season in the United States between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas. Here are just a few tips that I use when shopping online to find the best deals. It basically comes down to doing 2 things:

1. Doing a competitive product search
2. Searching for online coupons or promo codes

I use Google's Product search to compare prices on items. I recently used it to find competitive prices for a book that I'm buying as a gift for someone. I think it has one of the most comprehensive searches than any other shopping site. Yahoo Shopping is another good alternative.

Once you find the price you're looking for, go to checkout for that particular merchant. In another window, do a Google search for online coupon codes for that particular store. For instance, if the lowest price you find is at Amazon, then do a Google search for "Amazon coupon codes." More than likely, you'll find some kind of discount. Any other tips?
