Cyber Monday deals did not disappoint — and they're still going strong. Eager shoppers are clicking away, scooping up bargains from retailers like Target, Amazon and Nordstrom Rack. Experts say the 2022 holiday shopping season is shaping up to be big, even with inflation talk. Kristen Gall, retail and shopping expert for Rakuten, says that in addition to tech, stay alert for sales on home goods — a glut of overstock has motivated big retailers to slash prices across categories. We put together this list of under-$25 steals to help you fill in some blanks at home (want a Roku streaming stick for 50% off?) and score some special gifts, like these clever convertible gloves, down to just $20. Let's go!

At one point, Cyber Monday was the online version of the in-store Black Friday deals. But in 2022, there is really not a big difference between Cyber Monday and Black Friday. Some Cyber Monday deals will be better, though. Focus on the categories that don't sell out on Black Friday — clothes, tools, kitchen gadgets and small appliances. Some retailers also restock electronics and tech that sold out on Black Friday, making Cyber Monday your “second chance” to score on those sought-after items.
