Cyber Monday deals are just as good if not better than Black Friday. Here's a look at the hot items and tips to earn money while you shop online.
Best Buy, which holds one of the most anticipated Black Friday sales every year, decided to pre-empt many of the Black Friday websites this year by issuing a "small preview" of its Black Friday deals.
But the website BFAds.net says Best Buy may have inadvertently leaked the entire 22-page ad , something stores normally don't like to release until a few days before Thanksgiving for competitive reasons.

Best Buy will open at midnight so that customers don't have to stand outside in the cold all night. They will then hand out tickets for doorbuster deals two hours before the items go on sale, typically starting at 4 a.m.
Best Deals at Best Buy
Some of the biggest doorbuster deals, according to BFAds.net and Examiner.com include:
-Toshiba 50-inch LED HDTV: $399
-Toshiba 40-inch LCD HDTV: $179
-Blu-ray players: $39
-Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone: $48 with contract
-Playstation 3 bundle: $199 ($100 savings)
-Lenovo 15 inch, 2 GB laptop: $187
Caution before you get in line:
The Examiner warns that "Best Buy's Black Friday is not for the faint of heart." It says the store often has just 10 of any one item in stock.
Remember, these are all limited number deals, will sell out fast, and no rainchecks are available.
As always, don't waste your money.
