Cyber Monday Deals 2013: Walmart, Amazon, and Target

CYMON

Cyber Monday is the first Monday after Thanksgiving Day. The term Cyber Monday was first coined in 2005 and it has since turned into the single biggest shopping day of the year for online retailers.

Cyber Monday first served a bit of a niche, a way for retailers to capitalize on the holiday shopping season, but has become almost as popular as Black Friday. Walmart did one better and started its Cyber Week sales on Saturday. Here’s a list of the deals for the Cyber Monday:

Amazon:
Amazon announced plans to start its Cyber Monday deals at midnight on Sunday and run promotions throughout the week. The deals include:
