Cyber Monday Begins Earlier This Year

Robyn Beck/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Those not weary from Black Friday's blowouts may find the energy to peruse Cyber Monday deals, many of which actually begin on Sunday this year.

Last year, more than 100 million consumers shopped online on Cyber Monday, according to personal finance security service BillGuard.

Online shoppers would be wise to comparison shop and maximize the rewards they can earn.

While shopping online, if you have a credit card that rewards you with points, use those racked-up points to purchase gifts for your loved ones, said personal finance expert Farnoosh Torabi with Chase Ultimate Rewards. Chase card members with Ultimate Rewards, for example, can redeem their points for gifts and discounted gift cards. Card members who use reward points to shop on Cyber Monday will also save 25 percent on merchandise at the Ultimate Rewards mall.

"Depending on your points balance, some gifts could even end up being free," she said.

Here is a sneak peak of some of the companies to offer Cyber Monday deals: AAFES (Army and Air Force Exchange Service), Academy Sports and Outdoors, Ace Hardware, Babies"'R" Us, Banana Republic, Bass Pro Shops, GameStop, Half Price Books, Kmart, Macy’s, Sears, Walmart and JCPenney, just to name a few.
