Happy Cyber Monday!

People ask me all the time which store has the best deals. It really depends on what you're looking for. They all have their hot doorbusters and their deals that aren't as great. If you can pick all the very best deals available, you'll save a ton. 

There are so many hot deals in honor of Cyber Monday, let's start with the king of online shopping, Amazon.

If you have an American Express card, register it to get a $25 credit when you shop Amazon and spend $75 or more before the end of the year.

You can head over here and score $50 off a Kindle Fire. Get the HDX model for $179.

Today you can also save 50 percent off top toys from Mattel & Fisher Price.  Remember, all orders over $35 ship free with super saver shipping (or with your Amazon Prime account).

Here are some of my top toy picks:

This Monster High playset usually goes for $39.99 but is on sale for $15.99. It includes a doll, and an iPod dock. 

The Barbie 3-story Dream Townhouse usually goes for $184.99 but today is priced at $92.49.

This Thomas the Train: All Around Sodor set usually goes for $39.99, today you'll pay $19.99.

This Imaginext Mega T-Rex is on sale for $22.49, usually $44.99. It gets great reviews.

If you’re not sure what toys you want to buy just yet, you can still click here to pick up a voucher for $40 to spend at for just $20 on Groupon!

I’ve had lots of requests for American Girl sales and there is a Cyber Monday special starting now. Head over here to save up to 50 percent off (or more in some cases) outfits, accessories, and other gifts sure to please any American Girl fan.

Cyber Monday is a great day to shop for clothes! Head over here to get 40 percent off your entire H&M purchase over $50 and free shipping today with code 7376. I am quickly realizing (and I hope you are too) that you can shop online just about anywhere.

Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic are alsogetting into the Cyber Monday deal action. Go here to get 40 percent off at Gap and Banana or 30 percent off at Old Navy with promo code CYBER. This is good toward sale items (the 50 percent% off Black Friday Gap code wasn’t), so that could make for some even better thank Black Friday deals.

If you love popcorn and sodas with your movies (or have someone on your list who does), Harkins has a great deal for you today. Click here to get a FREE loyalty cup (a $5 value) when you buy a loyalty t-shirt and get free shipping.

Now onto Walmart:

A Samsung 46″ 1080p Ultraslim tv is $478, 50% off the normal $949.99 price.

An iPad Mini with bonus 8-in-1 bluetooth speaker is $279.99.

Keurig Elite is $98, plus you’ll get a $20 eGift card (so it's like paying $78).

backyard cedar swing set is $499, $200 off the normal $699 price. It gets great reviews.

Let's move onto Target:

Head over here to get a Keurig Mini for $89.99 plus you’ll get a $20 Target gift card which sweetens the deal quite a bit.

Buy one article of clothing, shoes, or accessories for the family and get one for 60% off. I liked the glittery girls boots marked down to $14.99. 

Score a 32″ Apex TV along with a Roku streaming stick for $229.99, $70 off.

 My favorite vacuum deal this Cyber Monday is at Macy's:

Head over here to get the Dyson DC24 Animal Vacuum with bonus attachments for $289.99 shipped, $260 off the normal $549.99 price. A stunning 95 percent of reviewers recommend this product; you'll definitely want to check out the reviews.

Onto Kohl's:

Right now you can take 20 percent off and get free shipping on everything (no minimums) with promo code CYBERSAVE. If you have a NutriBullet on the shopping list this year, this is GREAT! Click here to get one for $99.99 at Kohl’s (marked down from $119.99). Use promo code CYBERSAVE to get the price down to $79.99 (I haven’t seen this priced so low anywhere else).

Now Best Buy:

Head over here to check out the savings. I love that if you buy online and choose to pick up in store, you’ll earn a $10 savings code for every $100 you spend. That’s more holiday gifts you won’t have to pay for.

You can snag the Lenovo Touchscreen Laptop  for $279.99 shipped.

Grab an Insignia 37″ TV for $199.99 shipped (usually $299.99).

Take a cool $200 off an Apple MacBook Pro computer.

Score $50 off a Samsung Galaxy Note.

 And last but not least Starbucks:

Hurry over here to send a $5 Starbucks e-Gift to a friend using your Visa card and get a $5 Starbucks e-Gift for yourself (first 75,000 only, it may take awhile to get the promotional e-gift card). Click here for all of the terms and conditions.

Also at Starbucks, what a great deal if you need to stock up on coffee! Click here to save $25 off your Starbucks order over $60. You’ll also score free shipping.

If you prefer tea, click here to take $25 off your purchase of $60 or more at Teavana. You’ll also score free shipping and get free samples with every order, regardless the size.
