Holy Cow, it's Cyber Monday!  We just survived Black Friday, or Thursday, and a weekend of 'hurry, get them while-they're-hot' deals.   And now, another day of 'unbelievable' deals.

Actually, Cyber Monday is nothing more that a marketing term for the Monday immediately follow Black Friday created by companies to persuade us to shop online.

So I thought, if you are planning to 'cyber-shop,' I'll try to help.   Here are some helpful tips by , from the About.com Guide

1.  Look for Free Shipping!  Many, but not all, stores offer free shipping on Cyber Monday; so spend some time looking for those free shipping deals. Don’t see free shipping offered on the site that you're on? Then, check a competitor's site.

2. Seek Out Coupon Codes.  Head to currentcodes.com, retailmenot.com or one of the many other sites dedicated to finding and posting coupon codes. You may just find a deal – free shipping, free merchandise, a percent off your order – to sweeten the pot.

3. Order through a Rewards Site.  Access a store's website through a rewards site, and you'll earn points or even cash for your efforts. Some rewards sites worth checking out: Upromise, MyPoints, FatWallet and Ebates.

4.  Compare Prices.  Before you place an order, use a price comparison website like pricegrabber.com to make sure you're getting the best deal.

And, last, but not least.....

5. Bonus Tip: Bookmark Retailmenot.com. Then, the next time you're shopping online, just click on the link, and it'll display all of the coupons for the site that you're on – now that's bargain shopping made easy!

Good Luck, and, Happy Savings!
