Tomorrow November 28, 2011, will be the ‘official’ date of Cyber Monday this year. With the clocks ticking down the last couple of hrs; shoppers are feverishly searching the web for the best sales and deals that will become available for the day. For those of us who are not aware, Cyber Monday was coined as a term to designate the Monday that follows Black Friday; with the same ethos: you are able to get lots of deals and sales online for all sorts of things. And you don’t have to queue!
For those of us who are aware of Black Friday, Cyber Monday should not need any introduction. With sales having hit record high on the Monday after the Thanksgiving weekend in previous years, retailers have geared up in numbers and arms to offer a mind-boggling variety of deals and offers. Simply Google ‘Cyber Monday deals’ and the shear volume of results is enough to challenge even the most savvy of web users.
Thanksgiving weekend broke retail sales records in the US, according to a recent USA Today news. The National Retail Federation is quoted the sales this weekend to $52billion up from last years $45billion. This has raised high hopes for all the retailers and websites for tomorrow.
So, here at Techleash, we thought we would lend a helping hand to all those keen shoppers and summarize as many sales as we can:
AMAZON: Amazon’s Cyber Monday Deals are available here
Amazon has really put itself out there with the massive emphasis and exposure it has created on the Cyber Monday and the deals it is offering.

With deals offering as much as 53% off on popular products; you can save a quick $100 on HP laptops or a 16MP camera for $199 down from $399.
