Black Friday may be the shopping event on the minds of most Americans this week, but those looking for the best deals on the Web are already focusing on Cyber Monday. That's when the deals get really good and the only line you're dealing with is the one connecting you to the Internet.

But will sleeping in on Black Friday mean paying more on Cyber Monday? According to our experts, not really. Here's a sneak peek at what online holiday shoppers can expect.

Deals that deliver
The good news for online shoppers is that Cyber Monday 2010 should deliver; and we don't just mean a bunch of packages to your door. Luke Knowles, founder of Coupon Sherpa, tells WalletPop that he expects, "Cyber Monday deals to be as good, if not better than what we saw last year." Knowles added, "In past years I have noticed that retailers bring out their best online offers, like free shipping on all orders, on Cyber Monday and I don't see that changing this year."

Cyber Monday 2010 sneak peek
In planning for Cyber Monday, sign up for e-newsletters from the online stores you want to shop at since they will often send out Cyber Monday deals early to subscribers, says Knowles.

Savings.com, another great resource for deals, expects that we will see many site-wide coupons this year. Here are some of the Cyber Monday deals they sent us:

  • The Limited is offering 40% off site wide, plus free shipping.
  • Bloomingdales is offering 20% off all orders ($50 off $250) and 30% to 40% off select items.
  • Saks Fifth Ave is offering 30% to 40% off designer items
  • Macy's is offering an extra 20% off of almost everything (this was their Black Friday deal, most likely to be duplicated on Cyber Monday)

Clothing Cyber Monday deals

Gift card deals

If these deals aren't enough, be sure to check in at CouponSherpa, Savings.com and RetailMeNot's Cyber Monday Center for the best Cyber Monday 2010 savings.

Remember to be on the lookout for scams when it comes to Cyber Monday. Adam Levin, Founder of Identity Theft 911, suggests that you use a one time use credit card number (here's how to create one) when checking out to cut down on the possibility of your card number being stolen and used by criminals.
