Use the wisdom of the crowds

Bargain message boards like SlickDeals.net and FatWallet.com are virtual gold mines to save money. On a big shopping day like Cyber Monday, you'll find fantastic up-to-date insights, says Dworsky.

"Sometimes you'll find out about a deal that not a lot of people know about," he says. "It's also valuable because someone may post with what seems like a great deal, but subsequent posters will note that there's a better deal at another site or how to get an additional 10 percent off. It's a great word-of-mouth way to find out what's going to be available at a good price."
