"Cyber Monday" Open Thread

The retail industry's campaign to separate us from our money continues today with a host of "Cyber Monday" online-only sales. The made-up name (seriously, "cyber"?) is supposed to suggest that we'll all blow off work to shop online using our employers' bandwidth; prior years have suggested that not all that many people do such a thing, but the tradition seems settled by now.

You can track these today-only discounts at, of course, CyberMonday.com, a site set up the National Retail Federation's Shop.org division. You can also find lists of these discounts at some of the same deal-finding sites that monitor Black Friday discounts; see, for example, Black Friday Ads' list of today's sales.

Also of note for online shoppers, and not just for today: PayPal is resuming the cash-back deals I recommended and took advantage of last year.

So are you getting any online shopping done today? What kind of deals are you finding? Share your finds and your experience in the comments...

This web site will help you get the best prices on all of your purchases on cyber monday (and after!)

http://www.zingsale.com

It's a free service that tracks prices of products from online stores (like amazon) and sends you an email when the price drops. You can set a target price or be notified when it falls by a certain percentage. Might be a nice way to make sure you're getting the best deals this holiday season.

Lazy timing on emails from stores for cyber Monday deals. Costco email came overnight but Staples and others are just arriving in my inbox

Follow up: I was able to parlay a Cyber Monday price for a tv with delivery and set up at a brick and mortar store. Triumph
