Attention Shoppers: If you love those Black Friday bargains but hate those Black Friday crowds there's good news for you.

Scores of online one-stop shopping sites will be up and running the Friday after Thanksgiving allowing consumers to dodge the masses while comfortably shopping via computer at home, at a favorite coffee shop, or wherever a laptop can access WiFi.

Although most major retailers and national brands will have websites dedicated to offering their goods and products for sale, the easiest way to shop for deals is on the sites that aggregate everything at one Internet address, so you won't have to search individual sites.
