There is nothing like getting the best deals when shopping online. Pre-Christmas shopping is not all about Black Friday anymore - Cyber Monday sales provide an excellent opportunity to snag amazing bargains and get your gadgets at a fraction of the price. You just need to know how to find the best Cyber Monday deals. Here are a few tips that will help you save a fortune when you log in and do your online shopping the first Monday after Thanksgiving.

Research and research again

Who said that research was for school work only? Shopping, and especially shopping for Cyber Monday bargains, requires quite a bit of preparation. This means that you'll need to start by making a list of things you want to buy. Then check the prices for the items on your list and write them down. This way you will know which Cyber Monday bargains are real bargains and which ones are not. If you want to see if the deals are already available, go to and check it all out. Another good place to go to is Amazon where you can check for Cyber Monday and Black Friday deals.

Want to know what Cyber Monday is?

Identify the best bargains

Just like ordinary stores and shopping malls, online retailers usually sell out particular items. Spend some times on the websites and make notes of what each store is going to sell out. Make sure you write down the dates of the deals, as some Cyber Monday sales are running for a limited time only. So make sure you don't miss the bargains.

Use discount websites

Did you know that you can make Cyber Monday deals even better? All you need to do is check out various reward and coupon websites. Chances are that you can find great deals, earn reward points and even get a cash back on some of your purchases. FatWallet and Ebates are a good reward points websites and Dealio and RetailMeNot are great for finding coupons.

Do you work out a strategy for season sales?

See results

Check out deals at your local stores

Even though Cyber Monday is all about purchasing geeky stuff online, you should check out what your local stores have to offer. Very often they will have special deals to match the ones offered by online retailers. After all, they don't want to lose customers! So, before you go online to buy your gadgets, check out your local Apple Store and see if that new iPhone 5s isn't better value than online.

Now you know how to find the best Cyber Monday deals and take advantage of them. Happy shopping!
