Top Cyber Monday tech deals

Related Topics

While Cyber Monday has long taken a back seat to the holiday shopping tsunami that is Black Friday, this year things may be different -- especially since some sale prices on the Monday after Thanksgiving could be better than day-after-Thanksgiving deals.

"Cyber Monday brings savings that are 10% - 14% better than Black Friday," claims "deal journalist" Matt Granite, who hosts the Ways to Save segment aired on Gannett-owned local TV stations. "That's based on my findings from last year and the trends we expect this year. Obviously there will be exceptions, but this is my prediction for many major categories."

One Cyber Monday drawback, though, is that specials can be harder to find. Fewer show up in TV ads and newspaper circulars, which means if you're not subscribed to an online retailer's email list, you may miss some of the day's best shopping deals.

But here's the good news: We've done a lot of the legwork for you. We've scoured the Web, signed up for email specials and monitored social media to help find you some of the best tech specials for Dec. 1 online shopping.

Ready to shop? Check out the searchable, sortable chart below to see if there's a deal that appeals. And remember to bookmark this page, because we'll be updating the chart as we find out about more Cyber Monday specials.
