UNDATED -- Holiday shopping continues with Cyber Monday. It's the day when online retailers slash their prices across the board.

So, instead of pushing an actual cart this holiday season, you can click on a virtual one.

The National Retail Federation estimates that more than 80% of online retailers will offer promotions this Cyber Monday, and nearly 73 million people will take advantage of them.

On Black Friday, shoppers had to stand outside in the cold for hours and hours. People were pushing and shoving and had to wait in long lines.

Some shoppers said it wasn't worth it.

You can find a lot of Cyber Monday deals online.

On Cybermonday.com you can sign up to receive e-mail alerts for hourly savings and search the sales of more than 500 online stores.

Target.com is a big destination for shopping. You can get free shipping on your orders and special one-day sales.

Overstock.com has free shipping on all purchases and it's a great site to check out for big presents like new furniture or comforters for the bedroom.

Bestbuy.com is having a special 48-hour-only cyber sale on everything from TV's to video game consoles.
