Coupon Craze Helps Shoppers Navigate for Ultimate Cyber Monday Savings

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - November 17, 2009) - Cyber Monday -- the online version of Black Friday -- is just around the corner falling on November 30 this year. However, according to the National Retail Federation (NRF), holiday-related spending is expected to drop from last year by 3.2 percent. With the economy still in a slump, shoppers need to know how to take advantage of the savings available to them. The fact is, that with consumer spending down, retailers are forced to slash prices even more in order to drive sales -- which means bigger savings are attainable for those who know where to look.

Savvy shoppers can prepare by learning how to navigate Cyber Monday for the greatest possible savings and selection. For starters, Cyber Monday is not just one day. There are actually three different Cyber Mondays as well as a "Shipping Monday." What this means is that each Monday between Thanksgiving and Christmas, retailers will further reduce prices in an effort to boost sales.

This year's Cyber Mondays fall on the following dates:

  • November 30 (1st Official Cyber Monday): The best day for shoppers who want to be able to check off all the items of their list. The main advantage is that shoppers will find a wide selection of products (including the "must-have" items) while getting a good discount.

  • December 7 (2nd Cyber Monday): The day retailers offer deeper discounts, but product selection begins to thin out. This is for middle-of-the road shoppers who have a general idea of what they want, but nothing specific in mind.

  • December 14 (3rd Cyber Monday): Risk-takers will be doing their holiday shopping on this date. The items they have to choose from are sparse, but the upside is the unbeatable savings they'll find.

  • December 21 (Shipping Monday): Generally the last day a product can be shipped and arrive on time before the holidays. This is for the procrastinator -- and bargain hunter -- willing to trade off selection for the ultimate deal.

One last thing consumers need to know is where they can go to find these great discounts. By using an online coupon code and deal site such as Coupon Craze, online shoppers can search through the Cyber Monday category to find holiday savings. With over 10,000 retailers to choose from, there's sure to be discounts for every item on the list.
