Retailers are expected to continue to dish out holidays deals for Cyber Monday.
Experts are offering advice for safe, happy and secure online shopping.
Trae Bodge, of Retailmenot.com, recommends researching sales first and looking for coupon codes for even deeper discounts. Special sales may also be found on retailers' Twitter and Facebook feeds.
Michael Kaiser, of the National Cyber Security Alliance, is warning shoppers of potential scammers. He says that scammers know people are shopping and will try to lure in victims.
Kaiser advises online shoppers to update their computer software and use tools like two-step verification or multi-factor authentication.
Shoppers on mobile devices should also consider using cellular data instead of public Wi-Fi for a more secure Internet connection.
