Posted on 11/27/2012

Hoping to click your way through your holiday shopping list this Cyber Monday? With so many deals on virtually every retailer's website, it can be hard to keep up with the best bargains and sales. Enter Twitter-- a great tool for scoring special Cyber Christmastime deals.

Check Out Twitter Parties and Giveaways Newspaper inserts and TV commercials are no longer the only ways retailers advertise. Many are holding special giveaways during holiday Twitter parties. For example both Radio Shack and Land's End held Cyber Monday Twitter parties using exclusive hashtags. Look for this trend to continue throughout the holiday season.

Look for Your Favorite Retailer
Businesses like 24 Hour FitnessE.L.F. Cosmetics and Banana Republic are some of the many retailers offering up deals and coupons through their Twitter streams. Search for your favorite retailer and see if they're doing the same.

Review What's Trending
If certain holiday deals are really hot, you can bet that they'll be trending on Twitter. Review the list of Twitter trends found on the left hand side of your home page. You can even tailor the list to find out what's hot in your area.

Check Out the Hashtag
Whenever a retailer posts a holiday shopping deal or coupon on Twitter, they're sure to use a hashtag like "#holidaydeals", "#holidayshopping" or "#holidaysale". This is a super easy way to track specials and sales. Just search the hashtag and scroll through recent tweets.

Just Tweet
