Are you ready for Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday -- the first Monday after Thanksgiving -- is gaining traction over Black Friday for great holiday-shopping buys, thanks to the Internet.
"Black Friday may still be the single best day to shop for price, but Cyber Monday gives some retailers -- particularly online-only ones -- a chance to shine," says Edgar Dworsky, founder of the consumer resource guide Consumer World.
