Shoppers look to Cyber Monday for next round of deals

SPOKANE, Wash. - "I plant to be online all day," said Beca Kilber. 

With Thanksgiving and Black Friday in the rearview mirror, shoppers now look to Cyber Monday for their next big day of savings. 

"It lets me shop while I'm in my pajamas its pretty great," said Will Harrison.

"I'll be hitting up Amazon and Best Buy and then just scouring the internet for my Christmas list," said Christine Burns. 

Cyber Monday 2017 is expected to become the most online shopped day ever, topping $6.6 billion spent. 

Amazon is expected to send out more than 700 items per second and has deals on a variety of items from tech to video games. 

Best Buy, which saw big Black Friday lines in Spokane is expected to have online savings on TV's, apple products and game consoles. 

Target is offering 15% discounts site wide and will also have deals throughout the rest of the week. 

Shopping experts say that if you don't have time to shop online on Monday, deals will likely start early and linger through the week. 

"Cyber Monday is not just the Monday after Thanksgiving, "said Sara Skirboll, a retailmenot.com trends expert. "You will see deals early Sunday for instance and as late as Friday." 

But with online sales comes online scams, experts say watch out for fake website, fake apps and emails with deals that look to good to be true.
