Updated: Cyber Monday deals

If you skipped the Black Friday weekend madness, retailers are hoping today's Cyber Monday deals will persuade you to start your holiday shopping.

Many local merchants and most national chains are sending out emails, tweets and Facebook alerts, hoping to entice customers with online-exclusive deals, free shipping and other promotions.

Many retailers started early, releasing Cyber Monday deals over the weekend.

I'll update this post throughout the day with noteworthy deals.

Please post any good Cyber Monday deals you discover.

Don't forget Ebates when doing your Cyber Monday online shopping

If you're shopping Cyber Monday sales today, don't forget about Ebates.

Ebates is doubling its cash-back rebate offers at more than 500 stores today for Cyber Monday.

If you spend $100 at Gap today, for example, you'll get 10 percent back from Ebates. A normal rebate at Gap is just 2 percent.

And remember, that's on top of any deals you get directly from the retailer.

Not familiar with Ebates? It's a shopping portal that pays you to shop.

Here's how it works:

Recyclebank offers discounted rewards for Cyber Monday

If you're a Recyclebank fan, you can snag several of the site's popular rewards at 75 percent off during today's Cyber Monday promotion.

Among the discounted rewards: coupons for King Arthur Flour, Bumble Bee Tuna and Kashi products.

The $1/1 coupon on King Arthur Flour, for example, is just 12 points today instead of the usual 50.

These rewards are print-at-home coupons and I suspect the site may run out of prints as word gets out. So if you're interested, I would print them now rather than later.

Wall Street Journal on the myth of Black Friday deals

Is Black Friday the best day of the year to snag a bargain?

In most instances, probably not, says the Wall Street Journal.

In an Oct. 8 story, the Journal concluded that the so-called "Door Buster" deals may truly be a deal -- if you are among the first few to snag them. But for most items, the lowest prices were not found on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday shoppers can save more using Ebates

If you're shopping Cyber Monday sales today, be sure to stop by Ebates first to maximize your savings.

Ebates is doubling its typical cash-back offers at 500 stores today only in celebration of Cyber Monday.
