Get Social Before Cyber Monday

Online retailers usually have Facebook pages and Twitter accounts to announce exclusive deals. While online stores might not tell you the exact kind of discounts they're offering on Cyber Monday, they often talk about the hottest products that will be part of their sale.

Do Your Homework

Research websites for the products you want. Keep a list of who has the best selection. But don't stop there; read product reviews to make sure the website is credible and the products are reliable.

Join the Club

If there's an online retail store that you shop at time and time again, join their customer rewards program to get loyalty benefits. While there might be a small fee to join, your regular purchases will pay off big time. Many rewards programs have exclusive offers and deeper discounts for customers who sign up.

Three different kinds of online shopping coupons

Look for Coupons and Promo Codes

These days, you don't have to clip magazine ads for coupons and promotional codes. Look for extra coupons on social media, in emails, and on store websites. You can often use these coupons and codes on your Cyber Monday shopping and apply them to already discounted items, making your savings that much sweeter.

Sign Up for Email

Signing up for email keeps you in the know about every savings opportunity. All you have to do is sign up on your favorite retailer's email list. You can customize your settings to get daily, weekly, or sometimes monthly updates on the newest sales and promotions. You may find out which products will be on sale on Cyber Monday before anyone else.

Get Up Early

The beauty of Cyber Monday is that waking up early to do your shopping isn't so bad when you can do it from your bed or couch while wearing your coziest pajamas. Have your shopping list ready, and commit to an early morning to get a jump-start on your Cyber Monday shopping.

Save More with Store Credit Cards

Open company credit cards that offer cash back, rewards, and discounts for extra savings. Store credit cards also come in handy when you're trying to make a large purchase, such as a new piece of furniture or an appliance, because they offer multiple convenient financing options. Some store cards even offer rewards points in the form of in-store credit so you can save more on future purchases.

Cyber Monday 2016 is Monday, November 28th. Find the best Cyber Monday deals online and get huge savings.
