Cyber Monday is under way and there is still plenty of time to cash in on the great deals.

Carrie Rocha with PocketYourDollars.com says despite the extra shopping days, with stores opening on Thanksgiving and retailers slashing prices on Black Friday, Cyber Monday is still going strong.

Online deals range from free shipping to hundreds of dollars worth of discounts on electronics.

Hotels, airlines, even cruise lines are trying to cash in on the fact that shoppers are at their computers, in the mood to spend money.

Cyber Monday is expected to be the busiest online shopping day of the year. Most online shopping deals run until midnight Monday, while some are lasting until the middle of the week.

Early results showed online shopping was up 18.7 percent compared with the same time last year, according to figures by IBM Benchmark. Mobile traffic, which includes smartphones and tablets, accounted for 30 percent of all online traffic.
