Looking for the best Cyber Monday sales sites? Look no further.
Cyber Monday, the online-only counterpart to Black Friday, is here, and if you didn't get pepper-sprayed or pushed around over a waffle maker, you're probably ready for more deals. Here's where to look for the best sales and discounts this Cyber Monday.
Amazon: There are big sales all across Amazon, including $60 off the MacBook Air, $120 off the Kindle DX and one penny for a batch of AT&T, Sprint and Verizon smartphones with new activations. Check out Amazon Cyber Monday HQ here.
Barnes & Noble: 30 percent off any one item or 50 percent off any New York Times Bestseller at the bookseller's website. They've also got deals on DVDs and BluRays, Rosetta Stone programs and the Nook (no discount, but you get a $30 gift card with purchase).
Best Buy: The electronics giant has sales in all departments -- Engadget likes their deals on HDTVs and the iCade, a device that turns your iPad into a mini-arcade machine. Browse through their deals here.
Microsoft: Looking to buy an XBOX 360? Microsoft has a good deal on a 4GB Xbox 360 and the Kinect sensor for $199, down from $299. You can also save 25 percent on accessories (computer speakers, computer mice, keyboards and more) at this page.
Phillips: All orders over $100 are 30 percent off with free ground shipping. That includes televisions, razors, mother and child care, coffeemakers, and everything else Phillips makes.
TigerDirect and NewEgg: Prices on these electronics sites are already low, and their Cyber Monday deals are huge. If you're looking for televisions, computers -- anything with a plug, really -- check these two big boys of cheap electronics.
That's just a taste of what you can expect from Cyber Monday. Make sure you check out Engadget and Gizmodo for constant updates on deals; Cyber Monday 2011 and Cyber Monday Online Deals are also nice, clean, non-spammy websites for coupons and sales on a variety of products. CyberMonday.com is shop.org's deal aggregator and a huge portal to loads of retailers offering Black Friday sales.
