For many years now, I’ve been much more a Cyber Monday participant than I ever was a Black Friday shopper. In fact, I’ve knocked out whole holiday shopping seasons on Cyber Monday. Apps, sites and social media have made getting the best online deals easier than ever . . . or have they? Filter out some of the internet noise by checking out these tips:
- Visit http://www.cybermonday.com/ to see the at-a-glance featured deals from major retailers. http://dealnews.com/ is another site to help you manage what’s hot on Cyber Monday.
- Keep your eye on Amazon — where new deals will launch with frequency. Keep shopping with the Amazon app on your phone (who’s not being productive at work?!)
- If you have a favorite brand or retailer you know you will shop this week, visit their Facebook page and become a fan by clicking the “like” button. If the brand is on Twitter, follow them. Brands will be offering special deals and keep their fans informed of offers on social platforms, first.
Now, get shopping! (Don’t tell your boss I said so.)
