2015 Cyber Monday Shopping Guide

The shopping aficionados at DealNews and NerdWallet gave us the lowdown on how you can get the most bang for your buck on Cyber Monday.

Amazon is the mecca of Cyber Monday -- the online retail giant is offering deal, upon deal, upon deal.

But NerdWallet says that traditional brick and mortar stores have fantastic online deals as well. Make sure to look into Cyber Monday sales on the websites of Target, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Macy's, JCPenney and even Staples.

A place that might not be on your radar is Newegg. DealNews' Benjamin Glaser said the online retailer specializes in electronics and will be offering big discounts this holiday weekend.

The team at NerdWallet suggests deal-hungry shoppers should head over to eBay for some great deals as well.

In general, Cyber Monday sales are storewide versus product specific, according to NerdWallet.

But they warn that not every sale will really be worthwhile. Pay attention to the price you're paying, rather than the supposed percent-off discount.

Glaser said to avoid "disappointing discounts" at the Apple Store and skip things like travel deals -- they won't be discounted for Cyber Monday.
