Is anyone taking advantage of Cyber Monday?

I checked a few of my favorite websites (Amazon & Target) and I really wasn't impressed with the deals.

I've had a Sears giftcard lying around for a little bit so I headed over to the Sears website. Scored a pretty nifty deal on two cameras (buy one, get a second free!). Shopped through MyPoints, so I'll earn five points per dollar on my order. I still have money left on my giftcard! And since the deal was out online, I can pick it up at my local store, should be done tonight!

Anyone else shopping the world wide web today?

Not me. I'm giving cash to all the grandkids this Christmas.

That seems to be the most appreciated gift. Kids range from 16 to 8 months.

I am doing a little. Snapfish has free shipping today. I am combining the free shipping with some free codes I have to get a couple of free gifts.

Disney.com has a decent deal going. I found some cute tees for each of us. We leave for Disney World in 19 days and all of us could use new Mickey, Grumpy, Tink and Jack Skeleton t-shirts for the trip. Ours from last year are worn out and this way they will still be official Disney merchandise just like we get in the parks, only a bit cheaper.

Otherwise, I have not been overly impressed with the deals today.

:laugh: Me too! Leave it to the frugal ones to be "dragging their feet"...:laugh:

I did check all my emails to see who was going to give me free shipping..........and what the MINIMUM would be....hate that part.

Barnes and Noble may have sucked me in..........free shipping with no minimum!!

:thumb: Cash is THE perfect gift. Everyone's gonna adore you for that. :)

No cyber-shopping for me today, either. We don't need anything and I'm trying not to bring more stuff into my house for awhile. :rolleyes:

I bought my dh's surprise Christmas gift online. I saved $60.00 on it AND got free shipping to my home. I'm happy and I really believe he will be too.

...btw by surprise I mean he doesn't know what he is. He picked out his other gifts.

I've looked around but haven't seen anything else I want or need.

i got a few things on amazon just because i ordered the wrong thing @ TRU and it was delivered today and i realized it was wrong - and amazon had the right thing for cheaper and free shipping .

otherwise i am basically done except for dh and the pollyannas we pick out next week - dh needs to let me know what he wants ( have some clothes for him but thats it )

i like to shop in spurts i would rather spend what i have to spend and get done with ( still try to get best deals though ) so i can get myself back into an uber frugal mindset of not spending .

Does buying vitamins online count? I did get shipping for 99 cents!

I looked a bit, but everything was way out of my budget. Surprised so many are out spending money. People seem to be opening up their wallets more.
