Save money online on Cyber Monday

Do research on the best prices
Do research on the best prices

The best deal-hunters are well-prepared when they begin their Monday purchasing. Take inventory of what you need and your list of holiday gifts, and head out on the Internet highway to save money, says J. Brian Preston, a financial planner at Preston & Cleveland Wealth Management LLC in McDonough, Ga., and host of "The Money Guy Show," a podcast and blog.

"You can find the best products by doing research on a site like ConsumerReports.org, and then check current prices at a site like PriceGrabber.com," he says.

Once you have context, head to sites such as CyberMonday.com to compare your needs with what will be offered. Dworsky adds that Black Friday circulars can serve as a benchmark for your Cyber Monday shopping.
