Forget Black Friday, Cyber Monday is where it's at. No fighting for the last PlayStation, no getting trampled at Walmart, just you, a cup of coffee and you're trusty computer getting all your holiday shopping done in one sitting. Isn't technology great?
You've likely already perused our Holiday Gift Guide
, chock full of affordable and cool gifts for everyone on your list. Here's a round up of online sales to jump on before the last iPhone sells out...
Rent a Room
Swanky Chicago boutique hotel The James is offering a buy-one-get-one-free offer
for gift certificates. So buy one $200 credit and get one free. The coolest part is you can use the certificate to rent a room or spend it in one of the hotel's restaurants or bars.
For the TV junkie without room for a 60" television. This small EyeClops Mini Projector
broadcasts movies, TV, video games and more onto the wall (indoors or out). Who needs a big screen when you can project. Throw in some microwave popcorn and you may never need to go to the cineplex again. Only $70, a far cry from the $1200-plus a big-screen TV would cost. Available via Amazon's Cyber Monday Deals
