1:37 /

Need a game plan for Cyber Monday? CNET's Sumi Das shares tips, from how to prepare ahead of time to how to enjoy the perks of an Amazon Prime membership without paying a cent.

-There's nothing like a shopping frenzy to dampen your holiday spirit. But why add undue stress this season. Here's how you can make the most of cyber Monday. First, to save time, set up accounts for the sites where you plan to shop beforehand. -Then research the products you want to buy and prioritize your shopping list with hundreds of like minded bargain hunters eyeing the same items, cyber Monday is no time to lull or gag. To avoid buyer's remorse and make sure you're getting the absolute rock bottom price, use a price comparison site like Google products or install a browser extension like PriceBlink or Invisible Hand. -Whenever you're on a site that has a product and a price, it will automatically pop up and CE if there's any better price on that product that you can find across the web. -Chances are you're buying at least an item or 2 from Amazon this year. If you have a relative who has an Amazon Prime Membership, ask them to add you to add you to their account. Membership perks can be shared with up to 4 people. -By adding your family members or being added as a family member, you can get that free 2-day shipping and how to spend a dime on a Prime Account. -If you don't end up snugging any deals, don't panic. Many will be available beyond cyber Monday and if you're shopping for yourself, come on we've all done it. Wait until after the holidays. Prices will be better and your blood pressure may have stabilized. In San Francisco, I'm Sumi Das, cnet.com for CBS news.
