Looking for a bargain this holiday?
Give thanks this year not for extra helpings of turkey and stuffing but for Cyber Monday, when the country's biggest retailers roll out their deepest price cuts to entice you to spend, spend, spend -- and then come back for seconds.
From Best Buy deals to bargain Xboxes, there are deals galore out there. Here's a few you should consider.
Several Cyber Monday-watching websites noted a 5-inch TomTom XXL 550 GPS, on sale today only at woot.com for just under $55. If you've still waiting to jump on the GPS bandwagon, or hoping to upgrade a smaller unit to one with a larger screen, this might be just what you -- or the driver in your family -- is looking for.
Dell has a massive list of deals available for Cyber Monday, several of which had already sold out by 9:30 a.m. -- such as an Inspiron 14R laptop with a second-generation Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of memory and Windows 7 that was on sale for just $399.99.
The company still has several great deals available, however, including desktops for just $349.99, a 22-inch LED monitor for just $139.99, printers and more.
Want a cheap Apple iWhatever? You may have missed the boat. The company offered discounts on Black Friday on iPads, iPod Touches, and more. Buyers were offered $41 off the 16GB version of the iPad 2, for example, or $61 off the 64GB device. Those deals lasted only for a day, however; today Apple has up its Holiday Gift Guide page, which offers not deals but suggestions on other stuff you can buy.
Instead of a new iPhone or iPod, consider an accessory for the Apple lover in your life. Tech giant Philips has a 30 percent off sale in effect, for example, which includes the company's extensive line up of speaker dock. Grab the $400 Sound Curve Airplay for just $279.99 with free shipping, provided you use use coupon code "BF2011SALE."
Big tech retailers have too many deals to list comprehensively here. Best Buy, for example, has a Cyber Monday sale listing a raft of bargains on mobile phones, video games, tablet computers and more. The popular Xbox Kinect add-on is discounted to just $99.99, for example.
NewEgg.com has Cyber Monday promotions as well -- look for a Sony Vaio EH laptop with a 15.5-inch screen, Windows 7, and an Intel Core i5 processor for $599 -- $100 off. And pick up a copy of McAfee Internet Security for just $45 -- keep you safe while you browse all the deals out there.
