Now that Black Friday 2013 has come and gone, retailers and shoppers alike are plunging into the next wave of the holiday shopping frenzy: Cyber Monday.
Referring to the Monday after Thanksgiving and originally created to lure holiday shoppers to spend their dollars online, the term Cyber Monday made its US debut in 2005. Since then, it has become one of the biggest shopping days of the year.
This year, consumers can find great Cyber Monday deals on phones and televisions.

No matter what size television you're looking for, there's a cyber deal for you:
- Westinghouse 32" HDTV for $199.99 (Target)
- Samsung 46" HDTV for $478 (Walmart)
- LG 55" LED HDTV with Soundbar for $799 (Walmart)
- Samsung 65" LED HDTV for $999.99 (Best Buy)
Motorola is offering its celebrated smartphone, the Moto X, for $349 on Monday for "any carrier, no contract, any color combination."
You can snag an HTC One 32 GB smartphone on Amazon for as little as $0.01 with a two year contract from AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon.
CNet's Marguerite Reardon says the best smartphone deals she's seen so far are for the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Apple's iPhone is conspicuously absent from most Cyber Monday smartphone deal roundups.
