Amarillo, TX -If you weren't able to snag the deals you wanted on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, you're not out of luck yet.As more and more people turn to the web for their shopping needs, businesses are increasing deals offered on Cyber Monday to meet the demand of their online customers.

So many people were shopping on BestBuy.comFriday that the website actually crashed multiple times. "Our online business has increased over 200 percent," said Best Buy sales manager Andrea Bunnie. "I think it's just the convenience of being at home and spending time with your family and just looking and comparing other prices."

Target reports it saw a 40 percent increase in online sales Friday, making it the retailer's biggest online sales day ever, a trend it hopes will continue. On Cyber Monday, Target.com will have 100,000 items on sale.

Walmart is offering 500 online deals, which is double the number from last year. Both Target and Walmart said the deals will continue all week long, with different specials each day.

DealNews.comsaid based on Cyber Monday trends over the past three years, the best deals compared to Black Friday sales involve clothing, shoes, beauty products, toys and travel.

But just because sales are a click away, does not mean shopping online is necessarily easier. "There is so much noise around Cyber Monday and of course we're sitting at home, but we have access to millions of websites," said Trae Bodge, the senior editor of RetailMeNot.com. "My advice would be find a couple of trusted resources, go from there."

Researching deals ahead of time can save you even more money, especially if you look out for coupon codes for even bigger discounts. Retailer's Twitter and Facebook feeds are also good resources to find special sales going on that day.
