The Best Cyber Monday Deals
Don’t wait in line in the freezing cold today! Instead, join the millions of savvy shoppers and get in on the Cyber Monday action. The National Retail Federation coined the term “Cyber Monday” in 2005, after noting the huge increase in Internet sales on the day that people returned to work after Thanksgiving weekend. (Evidently people would rather shop online than work. Shocking, we know!) According to US News & World Report, online shoppers are expected to spend $2.27 billion this year, an increase of 15 percent from 2012. Tons of retailers are offering unbeatable deals on electronics, appliances, clothing and accessories, just to name a few. Here are my picks for 2013′s top Cyber Monday deals.
NOOK HD+ (16 GB)
Time to make someone extremely happy with the Nook HD+ from Barnes and Noble.

(I think I’ll be shopping for one of these today as well!)
