CNET News Video: Cyber Monday shopping tips

1:03 /

The Monday after Thanksgiving, better known as "Cyber Monday," is expected to be the most popular shopping day of the year, beating out the traditional Black Friday. According to AmEx, 55 percent of consumers plan to shop online that day versus the 52 percent who will actually go to the stores. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi brings us some tips on navigating the online deals.

If you are searching for online deals and hopes of catching a windfall on cyber Monday, the first resource you should check is cybermonday.com. It's a catch off for major retailer's deals throughout the year. But on Cyber Monday, it will update the site with the best deals, hourly specials and exclusives. Sign up with your e-mail address to receive alerts. Dealio, PriceGrabber.com and RetailMeNot.com are all similar sites that keep you up to date with store coupons and allow you to comparison shop. If you're looking to score deals, bookmark these sites and be sure to check for promotions before placing your order. Finally, think about shopping through various reward sites that give you extra points, airline miles or even cash every time you make a purchase. For example, Ebates.com will give you a certain percentage of what you spend one other 1,600 partner retailers if you access that website through Ebates. So, create a free membership and be sure to start at their site to get your cash back rewards. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
