Millions of Americans will celebrate Cyber Monday by shopping for online deals today. The Monday after Thanksgiving typically marks the kick-off of the online holiday shopping season. Daniel Sieberg with Google says many shoppers are looking for electronics like the Sony PlayStation 4, XBox One and tablets. Other popular items include Minecraft Legos, UGG boots and North Face jackets.
How do you make sure you get the deals you want? Plan ahead. About 90 percent of shoppers are doing advance research online for Cyber Monday. Consumer savings expert Andrea Woroch [[ wore-ock ]] says besides pre-loading your shopping cart online with things you plan to buy, check out websites that make online shopping easier.
