Are you ready for Cyber Monday?

Planning on skipping the Black Friday throngs and doing most of your Christmas shopping on line ?  Don't boot your computer or log on to the internet without first taking a few steps to ensure that you are getting the best deals on all your Christmas and Holiday shopping .

1. Visit to plan the deals.  Then look to websites like and to find coupon codes for the stores you plan on cyber visiting .

2.  Visit and check out rebates for everything from small appliances to personal care items .  Make sure you print out 2 copies of your receipt for any item you plan on getting a rebate for.

3. Join a cash back shopping network like the brand new Blastoff, or old favorites like Ebates or Big Crumbs.  You'll earn cash back on your purchases , sort of like a rebate without the paperwork.

4. Buy a discount gift card to the stores you plan on shopping.  You'll save money off the top and this is the "cherry on top" of bargain shopping. Just be sure to purchase your gift card from a reputable company , selling Visa Certified Cards.

5 .  Negotiate.  On sites like you'll be able to negotiate for lower prices , as you are dealing directly with the store owner.  Be fair but be on the look out to sweeten the deal , especially if you are buying multiple items from the same seller.

Planning to rise at the crack of dawn and hit the Las Vegas Black Friday sales at malls and chain stores , hoping to score a deal ?  RSS the feed of this site as we will be presenting some huge bargains for Black Friday over the coming weeks, just for local Las Vegans.

    In addition to the standard coupon sites, I also like using price alert sites to find deals. I've already made a list of the gifts i'm buying for my family at ZingSale, and now i get an email when any of them go on sale.
