Cyber Monday is not as famous as her big brother Black Friday. She's the Joan to John Cusak, the Maggie to Jake Gyllenhaal. The secret to her slow and steady success: everything she does is good. Unlike Black Friday (and John and Jake), who has just as many downsides as there are great savings, Cyber Monday is great and only great.
Cyber Monday has all the super-savings perks you enjoy on Black Friday without the crazy lines, the early morning wake up calls, the aggressive suburban moms clamoring for DVD players and no-stick frying pans. Take the day off and shop to your delight, on the couch and in your slippers with your credit card in hand. Sip on champagne, if you please – it might as well be a holiday!
If taking a day off to indulge in decadent discounts isn't an option, do not fret! There are ways to snab the super savings you love while at work – even with your boss patrolling the workplace. Here's how.
3 Tips to Cyber Monday Shopping at Work
DisclaimerWhile these tips are savvy enough to trick the common work curmudgeon, they are by no means fool proof. If you think there is serious risk of you getting in trouble at work – or if your boss has one of those creepy internet tracking programs - call in sick with a case of the Cyber Monday Shivers and shop to your heart's content from the comfort of your couch.
