Did you wait in line, or maybe find a steal of a deal last week on Black Friday?
We heard a lot of buzz about people just skipping the whole waiting in line thing and purchasing their electronics and gifts online.
There’s certainly been much ado in the last few years about shopping deals post-Thanksgiving, but with the web it’s been the Monday after the holiday that’s getting more attention—Cyber Monday, as it’s quickly become dubbed.
Here are some links, and highlights, to check out, courtesy of cybermonday.net:
Walmart.com - Look for the Nintendo Wii bundle for $249 and 32-inch Sony Bravia HDTV for $398.
BestBuy.com - Check out the $129 Blu-ray players from Sony (BDP-S360), Panasonic (BD60K) and LG (BD370), or prepare for the warmer weather with Klipsch’s rock speakers at $199 apiece.
Amazon.com - Amazon’s “GoldBox Deal of the Day” is a $158 8GB iPod touch. Other deals include a $798 Panasonic 42-inch 1080p Viera plasma, Archos 5 250GB Internet media tablet for $199 and Dell Inspiron Mini netbook with integrated TV tuner for $299.
As with Black Friday, be aware of the fine print—most places will say Cyber Monday deals are while supplies last, and of course for a limited time (mainly today, though some are all week). Let us know if you spot some great Cyber Monday deals, in comments below.
