If Black Friday isn't your thing, retailers are hoping today's Cyber Monday deals will get you to part with your hard-earned dollars this holiday season.
Many local merchants and most national chains will be 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 on Sunday (sound familiar?) Other companies started at midnight and many more are releasing deals this morning. I'll keep updating throughout the day so check back often. And please feel free to add the deals you spot.
