Some retailers like Amazon.co.uk will most likely release Black Friday deals to their VIP members first, so it's worth signing up to receive their emails.

The frenzy of Black Friday is over but Cyber Monday is hot on its heels with plenty of online deals to be bagged in time for ChristmasWhat is Cyber Monday?

Small business data analytics company Womply found in an analysis of 2,800 local retailers in Georgia that Black Friday is a better sales day by far for small businesses than Small Business Saturday. Here's a round-up of major retailers' deals, with information provided by BestBlackFriday.com.

From Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) to the end of Cyber Monday (the following Monday), eBay will match deals on certain new items sold online by Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy. "And that's why many people will still venture to stores to personally choose the right gift". Retailers are offering discounts on PLAY speakers this Black Friday.

While tech gadgets such as mobile phones and TVs remained the most popular Black Friday shopping purchases, 51 percent of the women surveyed also said that clothes and footwear are their primary purchase choice during the day of sales.

"Black Friday has become the number one holiday shopping day in the United States, and it's also the day that Americans start their holiday shopping experience", said Amit Patel, CEO of Ebates.

Consumers are putting the kibosh on Black Friday in-store shopping.

The quake was centred off the coast about 9.3 kilometres (5.8 miles) northwest of the port city of Pohang, according to the U.S. No injuries or major damage has been reported, according to the Korea Meteorological Administration.

A good number of "sofa" consumers (67 percent) hope the research will translate to more than $100 in Cyber Monday savings.

Special Deals: Best Buy will offer free shipping on all orders with no minimum from until December 25. If you're shopping in-store during the sales event be patient with staff who will be dealing with an increased number of shoppers.

Unfortunately for thrill-seeking shoppers, not only is Black Friday losing its zest statistic-wise, it is also losing popularity because of how insane it has become.

Although 40% of shoppers procrastinate and shop on Christmas Eve, December 24 is the least popular of the big shopping days, Offers.com noted.

Search for these codes on deal sharing communities and forums to see if you can use them in conjunction with the original Black Friday discount to save even more money. Before you pick your favorite site, the BBB recommends that consumers find a reputable site and check them out at BBB.org.

Young people have been particularly appreciative of Cyber Monday, during which many online retailers offer discounts on everything one could possibly need.
