In case you happened to miss Black Friday, online destinations are here to push Cyber Monday down our throats. Luckily, there are some pretty good deals to be found. Newegg has a page dedicated to all their Cyber Monday sales, where they’ve got a total of 60 deals, categorized into gifts for gamers, gifts under $50, gifts under $100, portable electronics, and the ever-so-vague “hot deals.” Be sure to check it out if you’ve still got gift shopping to do (or if you wanna score some stuff at a discount for yourself.)
