What to Avoid Buying
- Items that are not on your list: No matter how enticing the discounts get, stick to your list or you might end up spending more than you intended to.
- Things that are not on sale: While you can find great deals in every category on Cyber Monday, many brands do not offer any discount. Remember to stay away from them.
- Travel: Travel discounts are often the least impressive during Thanksgiving weekend. So spend your time and money on other items, which would be avaiable at dirt cheap rates.
- Small token items: Many Cyber Monday deals include small gifts or "2-for-1″ items. Keep an eye out for those, instead of stocking up on small items.
- Second-hand items: Do your research ahead of time and you can find brand new items at the second-hand rates.
