Cyber Monday 2010 is here and the Cyber Monday deals for this holiday shopping season are shaping up to be better than ever, with many retailers touting Cyber Monday sales that stack up against any Black Friday discounts. And, an all-access pass to Cyber Monday steals are but a click away on the Internet.

Rivaling Black Friday (minus the 3 a.m. wake-up calls, parking lot nightmares and the insane shopaholics run amok), Cyber Monday is a new holiday shopping tradition brought to consumers, courtesy of only the Internet. With the onset of Cyber Monday and its perks like free shipping and retailers’ site-wide sales, Black Friday is no longer the end-all, be-all of post-Thanksgiving holiday shopping fervor.

According to Comscore, Cyber Monday was the second biggest spending day of 2009, with nearly $890 million in sales. And retailers and consumers are taking note of these numbers that forecast Cyber Monday’s increasing stronghold. Most major retail outposts, such as, Target, Home Depot, Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s Avon, Wal-Mart, Sony, Toys R Us, Best Buy and beyond, have fully embraced Cyber Monday in an effort to boost spending, extending can’t-miss deals for online buyers.
