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.

The numbers agree: According to comScore Inc., online shoppers spent $1.73 billion on Cyber Monday last year on their desktop computers, 18 percent more than the year before. Be a savvy shopper this year on Monday, Dec. 1. Here are a few key strategies to save money.
