Cyber Monday 2013: the best deals from the top online stores


"Cyber Monday," the term widely used by retailers and the press to describe the shopping spree that occurs the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend in the US, was first invoked in 2005 by Shop.org, a website run by a retail trade group. Its savvy marketing paid off: in the intervening eight years, Cyber Monday has quickly become one of the biggest shopping days of the year for Americans, with steep discounts from both online merchants and their brick and mortar counterparts (although, it's worth noting many of those discounts were built into the original prices of products). This year, Cyber Monday may even surpass Black Friday in terms of total sales. We've gathered the best deals leading up to and on Cyber Monday 2013, December 2nd, to help you plow through your gift checklist that much faster and get you on to those holiday celebrations.
