November 29, 2010, 11:15 AM — If you missed out on all the shopping deals on Black Friday, don't sweat it because more deals are coming your way, thanks to the National Retail Federation's annual Cyber Monday promotional event.
It's just in time, too, as 106 million Americans are expected to rack up their credit cards shopping online Monday, according to a recent survey by the NRF. Interestingly, the NRF believes 7 million shoppers will be buying from their mobile phones this year--compared to 4 million who shopped from their mobile devices in 2009.
To help you spend those holiday dollars, the NRF says 88% of online retailers plan to offer Cyber Monday discounts and free shipping this year.
