(NECN) - Cyber Monday is known as one of the biggest shopping days of the year. Ted McEnroe tells us that despite all the hype, today actually isn't the busiest days for online shopping. He says the Monday before Christmas, right before you can get standard shipping, is one of the top days.
McEnroe says there are a lot of places consumers can go when looking for a bargain, including cybermonday.com. The website has about 700 retailers.
Shoppers should also check out facebook.com for deals because many companies let fans know about specials ahead of time.
When navigating the web, McEnroe recommends shopping with a list mind. If you know what you want, you can search for a specific item and get the best deals.
It's important to watch out for hidden costs. A consumer can get a deal on big screen television, but if shipping isn't included, expenses can add up.
If a website looks questionable, McEnroe recommends looking online for reviews to find out if a place is reputable.
